Counselling – Outdoors/in the park
Have you heard of Counselling in the Park/Outdoors?
For some, the constraints of a therapy room may be daunting, and even off putting; so I offer a new and innovative approach of Counselling in the Park.
I meet with my client (as in most counselling relationships) once per week within one of my set locations in either Kennington Park or Hyde Park. We then spend session walking and talking, or sat on a bench or grass. This not only helps to enhance the general feeling of wellbeing and connection to nature, but also places emphasis on the needed process of ‘moving forward’.
Please be aware, the introduction of outside therapy will mean that we will encounter external factors such as people, animals and weather conditions such as rain, snow and heat. Sessions will go ahead as normal during the rain and snow, except in circumstances where there are weather alerts; sessions will then be based within my private practice in Brixton, SW9.
Please inform me if you have any phobias that may be triggered while outside, i.e. fears of animals (dogs, squirrels etc), outside spaces etc.
What is Counselling?
Counselling is a ‘talking therapy’ that involves working collaboratively with a counsellor to explore, understand and work through past and present difficulties. I offer an open, non-judgmental and professional relationship; where you are able to freely express and explore your thoughts, concerns, experiences, and feelings of pain, sadness, anger and frustration. Counselling offers a safe, private, and confidential relationship, where you can begin resolving emotional conflicts, discovering and reframing negative thinking and behaviors, and aiding your journey towards making positive choices and changes.
You can read more in my ‘Regularly asked Questions’ section or contact me directly, where I will be happy to discuss any of your concerns and/or queries.
