Challenges in life can feel overwhelming. They often result in uncomfortable levels of stress, depression, and anxiety. They create barriers to wellbeing and impact relationships. Counselling can provide simple, proven strategies to address those barriers, manage the stress and anxiety, restore healthy relationships, and experience a new sense of wellbeing.
I offer a unique counselling experience. All my sessions are conducted outdoors. It's unusual in professional counselling but with care and guidance, the natural environment enhances the counselling process. Using evidence-based, person-centred therapies, my goal is to empower clients to understand and overcome challenges, and live their best life.
My background is in outdoor guiding and fitness instruction. When I trained as a counsellor, it made sense to take my practice outside. I now bring all areas of my expertise - what I've learned from a life spent outdoors together with contemporary, evidence-based therapies - to offer a thoughtful, balanced, and practical approach to counselling.
I specialise in climate-related distress and anxiety. Having studied Earth Sciences at university, I have a solid understanding of both the science and implications of climate change. This background enables me to provide useful, well-informed strategies to address the psychological impacts of climate change and associated natural disasters.
