About me and my therapy practice
Welcome to my counselling page, I offer two alternative counselling methods; Walking and talking therapy or face to face talking therapy.
One of the reasons I love this holistic approach to counselling is because it takes place outdoors in a setting that is by its very nature therapeutic. My clients are often more relaxed and at ease in this less enclosed environment. Walking therapy can equip you with the tools you need to become more solution-focused. By combining physical exercise with counselling, psychotherapy, mindfulness and coaching, you will begin to see improvement in your strategic thinking, enhanced creativity, reduced anxiety, alleviation of stress, improvement around anger issues and reduced levels of anxiety.We can meet at a selection of local West Dorset beauty spots, either woodland, open countryside, private farmland or beaches. (£50 per 60 minute session)
I offer a lovely, relaxed space where you will feel held and safe where we will initially discuss the issues you want to deal with, often several issues will be present at the same time. We will gradually build a holistic picture of your life, looking at your past, present and perceived future. We can explore all aspects of life; emotional, intellectual, physical, spiritual, work, home, relationships, friends and family.
We can either meet in my purpose built therapy room or outdoors for Walking Therapy.
My first session
Our first session will be free of charge in which we will discuss your presenting issue(s) and get a feel for whether we can work well together. We will discuss future sessions, timings and location and duration. I will give you two copies of the contract to read through in your own time, please return a signed copy to me once we begin sessions.
