Cara Louise Jones
I became really passionate about working with people, their holistic development and nature in a previous role as Education Officer and through my experience and training, I can deliver courses and training to adults as well as children. My background is Ecology, Art & Mental Health and I have enjoyed combining them all to create fun, interactive workshops, courses & activities for adults & children. I have worked with Parenting Charities as a Counsellor and research the effects of nature on well-being and mental health. I am truly passionate about people and providing skill based, experiential learning through my training programmes to help encourage people's development and mental well-being. I work in a variety of areas, from training employees, school staff and individuals, as well as working directly with the children and clients.
Registered nurse practitioner, specialised in psychiatric nursing, aesthetics and wellbeing. I was so passionate about my beliefs that I opened a registered holistic clinic in Llandudno 2007, offering a range of treatments such as colonic hydrotherapy. I believe the core of ourselves begin in the gut. I also offer laser therapy to help with smoking cessation and weight loss.
My experience as a nursing sister and hospital manager has continued to give me the focus to share my holistic/nursing skills to those that require them being delivered in surroundings of calmness and nature.
