Having spent a childhood camping in Scotland, bird watching with a pair of salvaged opera glasses and making ‘nests’ from grass and mud at home and taking on long contemplative walks in the countryside as a teenager, Rivkah has always felt a strong affinity with outdoor spaces. Her working life has taken her on a journey from secondary school music teacher to youth worker to participation worker with first social services and for the last ten years, child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS). Early on in her CAMHS career she met Marina Robb and together they have developed a highly valued and successful woodland programme that supports the emotional well being of young people experiencing mental health challenges and their families. Through this connection Rivkah has been able to meet wonderful people, be inspired by new ideas and qualify as a forest school leader: co-running a pre-school forest school for parents and their children in the East CHiltington/Plumpton area.
