Joyful Outdoors

Inspiring adults to explore wild plants, reconnect with nature & release stress through laughter!


Life is about connection – to each other, to nature and to ourselves, and I am passionate about facilitating that.


Through Joyful Outdoors I offer:

Laughter yoga for wellness

Foraging walks

Seasonal bushcraft workshops

Map reading & navigation courses for beginners.


I absolutely love sparking interest and hearing how inspired and refreshed people are once they’re armed with some nature knowledge.


I’m passionate about foraging & wild plants – identifying them & knowing how to weave their use into daily life – so I include elements of that into most workshops. I’m also a member of the Association of Foragers, an international community of professional foragers with a communal code of conduct and hold the following qualifications, so you know you’re in safe hands:


Practical Ethnobotany & Plant Identification – Woodcraft School (2023, Level 4 NCFE – passed with 100% Distinction)

Foundation Course in Herbal Medicine – Heartwood Foundation (2023 /24)

Certified Laughter Yoga Leader (2023)

Lowland Leader walking guide – Mountain Training (2022)

Advanced Bushcraft – Woodcraft School (2021, Level 3 NCFE)


Perhaps my favourite activity is running laughter yoga sessions as they have such a positive direct and visible impact! Sessions are fun and relaxed, combining movement, breathing and laughter exercises, and provide amazing stress relief and health benefits The beauty of laughter yoga lies in its simplicity and inclusivity – anyone can participate, regardless of age, fitness level, or prior yoga experience and there’s no ‘wrong’ way of doing it.


As well as public workshops, I run sessions for corporate groups, charities, festivals, hen weekends etc. Get in touch if you’d like to discuss how I can:

🤣 bring an energising laughter wellness session to your workplace or gathering;
🌱design a foraging session for your corporate awayday;
🔥book in a bushcraft day for you to enjoy with friends.
