This unique service combines the benefits of counselling, gentle exercise, and intentional time spent in nature.
Nature-Informed Therapy for Women’s Mental Health is offered during all four seasons.
Being in direct contact with nature gives us the opportunity to directly incorporate nature as a source of learning for what it is that you are exploring at the moment. Just as walking in the outdoors is an option for counselling within a nature setting, so is finding a spot out in nature to sit for our counselling session.
Is this for Me?
The benefits of nature-informed therapy include present moment awareness, stress reduction, better overall positive mood and improved sleep quality. Please read my blog the 5 Health Benefits of Nature-Informed Therapy for a brief overview of the approach. After meeting for our first session, we can discuss if this option is suitable for you. I offer this for women-identifying clients.
Confidentiality is always of utmost importance. In an outdoor setting, there are variables that I cannot control. It is imperative you understand the limits to confidentiality when we are outdoors. I will make every effort to create a situation where you are comfortable and secure.
