Nature had been a constant presence in humans’ lives since ancestral times even if the modern urban societies influenced humans’ experience of natural environment. Researches from multiple disciplines have established strong connections between direct contact with nature and enhanced health and well-being in people of all ages. Moreover, the experience of nature can serve as a preventive and therapeutic modality with huge potential for practice and research in the field of counseling and psychotherapy. In the past years, new forms of therapies have emerged based on using resources from nature in assisting clients in personal development or optimization as well as in clinical issues. This study will explore the model of nature therapy or nature-based therapy, a complex and holistic perspective based on a postmodern experiential theory. A case example and implications for practice are presented.
