Outdoor environments for health and wellbeing
Batchelor in Landscape engineering
I have the theoretical knowledge of soil and plants, as well as durability and esthetics. Having the tools to build and manage beautiful and functional outdoor environments, using digital drawing and spreadsheet programs, I provide custumers with well-designed presentations of the projects.
My special interest as well as my educational profile is arboriculture. In any project I´m happy to participate in all steps; from the very first idea using my senses and intellect, to the completed project and it´s maintenance, with my supervision and my bare hands.
I specialize in outdoor environments, with emphasis on the health and well-being of people. Science provides understanding on how different outdoor environments affect people, which is important to consider in the planning of everyday environments, schools, public spaces and even healthcare facilities.
This master's program is interdisciplinary and bases ear primarily environmental psychology, landscaping and public health, even if other parts that involve the interaction between human and the environment around included.
The knowledge gained by completing the program is very important in many situations, especially
Against the background of a society with more stress and the growing awareness of the importance of nature's influence on us. This would include all professions involved in the planning and design of environments in health care, schools and public spaces. - slu.se

Mindfulness & Forest Bathing Instructor
I give you the tools you need to be able to live a happy and balanced life, the tools for manage stress or anxiety. Combine mindfulness and nature and put put that in to your everyday life. Maybe you tried yoga but it wasn´t for you, and you are still searching to reduce stress then mindfulness in your favorit exercise will be something for you?
Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.
A forest bathing/Shinrin-Yoku trip involves visiting a forest for relaxation and recreation while breathing in wood essential oils. Incorporating forest bathing trips into a good lifestyle was first proposed in 1982 by the Forest Agency of Japan. It has now become a recognized relaxation and/or stress management all over the world.
