Reap the benefits of the natural world
This unique service combines the benefits of counselling, gentle exercise, and intentional time spent in nature.
Nature-Informed Therapy is offered during all four seasons.
There is an overwhelming amount of evidence that being in direct contact with nature relaxes your nervous system and gives us the opportunity to incorporate what you're exploring at the moment. Just as walking in the outdoors is an option for counselling, 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.
