Outdoor therapy

Perhaps the idea of counselling in a traditional counselling room is not something that you want. For some people, it can feel easier and less threatening to meet and talk in a public space rather than a counselling room. Outdoor counselling involves walking or sitting in an outdoor setting, surrounded by nature and out in the world. This is a naturally socially distanced setting. Furthermore, much counselling work can be accomplished in this environment.

How does it work?

Before the session we would have a chat over the phone, Zoom or Skype and discuss your needs along with where and when we meet. This initial consultation is charged at £30 and lasts around 50 minutes.

We would then meet at a public location (typically outside local transport hubs) and make a short walk to a local park where we would begin our session. The outdoor spaces that I use for this style of counselling offer quite seated locations, open parkland, trees and secluded areas. We would explore your issues, at your pace, in the areas that you find most valuable.

Locations that I currently offer sessions are SE10 (Greenwich park) or SE19 (Crystal Palace).

How much does it cost?

An outdoor counselling session lasts approximately 50 minutes and costs £60 per session. Note: An initial consultation is charged at £40 for 50 minutes.
