“The art of healing comes from nature, not from the physician. Therefore the physician must start from nature, with an open mind.” – Paracelsus
'I can't say enough how nice it has been to just walk, and sit on the grass and talk. Have no one around and just talk about how I feel in nature. Watching the world and people go by has given me so much more peace when I talk about things. It's freeing.
Outdoor/Walk-and-talk counselling brings its own dynamic. It offers you choices that being in a room does not. It can help you explore your inner critic or automatic responses more organically while giving you less intensity than being face-to-face: meaning you could find it easier to be more open without the distraction of my responses. Previously, I have utilised a combination of outdoor, online and face-to-face counselling to take advantage of their unique qualities.
I have been offering outdoor sessions since 2019. As the world shut down, I went out. And people came to join me in the benefits of counselling outdoors.
I offer different walks for Adults and Children. The walks for Adults are more secluded and quieter and out of town, whereas the walks with Children provide social protection and safety for both you/your child and myself. Please enquire to find out more.
The walks I offer have so many different options. Beautiful paths, the river, churches, benches and large grassy areas. Whether you want to walk, sit or take in the stunning scenery. There are so many options for you to explore. Also, parents can usually park for free depending on the walk chosen and watch the session from a confidential distance or return after the hour.
