What we do

Nature led approach

What is a nature led approach?

What can nature teach us within the coaching conversation? Taking a nature led approach to coaching gives us space to explore your connection to the natural world and how that may support the life you live, with reciprocity. It helps us to listen and heed our own inner ecology as well as how we wish to show up externally. Together we will consider your nature connection using the metaphor of your own internal garden, intertwined and ever changing and growing with the cycles in nature. What do you want to cultivate, what new seeds do you want to sow, what do you need to stop, remove and make way for new growth? How can nature soothe you, help ground you in times of uncertainty. 

Immersion and engagement with nature has multiple proven evidential benefits when treating low mood, pain, anxiety, improving mobility, increasing energy, managing illness, improving focus and when supporting change.

I have experienced the joy that comes from a reconnection with nature, the intelligence of nature can transform human consciousness, we can tap into it at any given moment to help nourish and heal our mind, body and soul.

Fiona, Kora Founder

How Kora uses a nature led approach

Over time, our connection with nature has decreased, various studies suggest that our language has changed since the 1950’s with less nature words being used in popular culture, increasing man-made urbanised environments and the advancements of technological changes being more indoor and virtually created, have all had significant impacts. We are exposed to much higher levels of stress & many people are describing feeling a loss of control, overwhelm, anxiety and fear.

Exploring and understanding the stress response and how it affects you is helpful. Once understood, you will be more able to work with it in a more resourceful and insightful manner, aligned with your needs and be able to adapt as situations arise for you in a much more resilient way. We incorporate the calming, soothing & inspirational benefits of nature as part of this to enable you to build your own set of tools and techniques that you can use at any time.

We often observed how often our clients would use references to the natural world to describe their lives, and there’s a reason for it. Science has demonstrated time and again that nature can be the true panacea for so many of our ills.

We enable clients to do this in a way that resonates for them, using tools including:

Integrative coaching

What is integrative coaching?

Integrative coaching is a client centred, therapeutic style of coaching that works with the whole of your being, acknowledging the interdependent roles of mind, body and spirit and the innate healing capacity within you.

It marries multiple practices, including our NLP, Clinical Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness and other therapeutic approaches, all grounded in nature to help you achieve your goals.

It provides a framework for more sustained behavioural change and is focused on empowering and supporting the individual to live optimally in any circumstances.

There is an emphasis on self-care, inner enquiry, awareness and reflection and we combine holistic principles, layered with evidence based modalities, that integrate with the clients treatment plans and overall health and wellbeing goals.

My practical experience is as a scientist, daughter, mother, wife and deeply intuitive being, I have a profound curiosity for life and I’ve utilised this to build a practice that marries evidence/facts with an openness for exploration and my love of nature.

Fiona, Kora Founder

How Kora uses Integrative coaching

There are many emotional, physiological and environmental unmet needs at the root cause of the challenges our clients come to us with.

Our focus is on understanding you at a deeper level, whilst acknowledging and bringing awareness and education to help you to understand where you are now. We focus on ways to help you live in the present and move forwards, enabling you to take control of your life and live more, alongside making any changes required. It’s a very personal approach & experience, and something we are proud to offer our clients.

For example, you may have unresolved emotional challenges from an experience you had years or even decades ago. That need can lead to unhealthy coping strategies, pain and even physical illness.

Our compassion-led work is always with your permission, we explore the unique path you need to take to freedom, and connection with yourself. The right path for one client looks very different to another.

You may have spent so long suppressing your feelings that even mentioning them feels silly, too overwhelming or scary to contemplate. Or you may somehow feel guilty or that you’re to ‘blame’ for your needs or experiences, we are here to reassure you that are not, what you can be responsible for is the commitment to make the changes needed for yourself, and know that it is possible.

We are experienced in the common coaching models like GROW (Goal, Reality, Options and Way forward), which provide a structured framework for coaching conversations and we also value other modalities including (but not limited to), NLP, EFT, Time Based Techniques, Somatic work (awareness and movement of your body), and Mindfulness. We will always use what we feel is the most appropriate combination for our clients in session. We layer the therapeutic effects, with nature bringing in another level of calm and multiple benefits to your sessions.

To us, ‘integrative’ means to ‘bring in/part of to facilitate an overall outcome’ and that’s what our coaching and therapy does; bring in the right modality for you, in the right way, at the right time.

Therapeutic techniques

Because our integrative coaching and treatment plans are tailored to the individual, the therapeutic techniques we use vary from person to person. Based on your needs and desired outcomes, we select the right practices to support you grounded within a holistic and nature connected, sensorial experience. Use the tabs below to learn more about some of the therapeutic techniques we use.

Ways to work with Kora

We all have goals we would like to aspire to, challenges to face and times when we feel stuck. Partnering with a Kora coach can change your life, setting you on a path to greater personal and professional fulfilment.We have developed an integrative, progressive, calm and mindful way of practice that really enables the client to step back and view what is important to them in order to facilitate the change and transformation in their lives.

Our coaching programme durations vary by client, we offer 3, 6, 9 and 12 month programmes.

Sessions are available, in person at our practice in Tadworth, Surrey, on our local nature coaching walks or via Zoom.

We always work with the person and not the condition as we trust that each of us has healing potential within ourselves and welcome client enquiries in relation to their specific experiences.

We offer bespoke packages to facilitate healing, as well as integrating hypnotherapy as part of our tailor-made coaching experiences dependant on client needs.

These are one off, intense transformational sessions that Kora has created to work with you on specific issues that are holding you back. 

We use a combination of tools and techniques to help you, each session is tailored to the client’s needs and includes Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), Time Based Techniques (TBT) and Hypnosis.

The nature and length of the sessions may vary, typically, a breakthrough session is between 3-6hrs working 1:1. There are few breaks and it is quite intense, you will leave with a renewed sense of self-awareness, new strategies and empowering beliefs that will liberate you.

Individual nature connection walks

This restorative nature walking is informed by the Japanese practice of “Shinrin Yoku,” or “Forest Bathing”. It is a calm and immersive sensory experience in nature involving moving slowly and mindfully in a natural place. It’s like a calming, soothing bath for the nervous system and has many healing and restorative benefits. We start with some guided meditation and slow wandering and move through to some nature based reflective or introspective practices.

Our programmes help you to consistently engage in self-care practices, facilitating you to define your own personal roadmap that works for you and incorporates preventative measures.

These are evening 1hr guided sessions, it’s time for you to book time out from the everyday and relax and reenergise. They are created by our founder specifically to promote inner healing and include meditation and Hypnotherapy. Time to make yourself comfortable and nourish your soul – candlelight and warm blankets are encouraged.

If you’re unsure what would be best for you, or to find out more about any of our programmes, book your free consultation today.
