Joni Mackay

Joni grew up in the wildness of the Scottish Highlands, naturally developing a great love for being outdoors and an appreciation of the natural world. She believes that through learning and living outdoors we develop practical skills, gain confidence and resilience, all of which support our ability to succeed when we return to the classroom, workplace and our day-to-day life.
Joni holds a Certificate in Therapeutic Skills for Outdoor Leaders and applies a therapeutic and person – centred approach to her work. Supporting young people, adults and families to access the outdoors, develop their understanding of the natural world and improve their overall health and wellbeing.
As a recognized Forest School Leader, Woodland Activity Leader, and Branching Out Leader, Joni delivers programmes, workshops and training in and around Glasgow. She believes that every day provides an opportunity to learn and is thankful to be part of an open and supportive community of practitioners.
