If you are interested in counselling sessions outdoors, then you may find talkwalkrun works for you. It can take the form of 'walk and talk' or, for those who would like to include some running, that is also an option. As a qualified counsellor I love combining being outside and moving with enabling people to find a way through difficulties in life. My counselling approach is an integrative one, although I place an emphasis on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). In particular I incorporate ideas from the most recent model which has been shown to have rapid and long-lasting impact for people suffering with anxiety or depression.

You might seek help for a specific problem such as obsessional behaviour, social anxiety or psycho-somatic symptoms. Or you may have more general feelings of anxiety or depression associated with dissatisfaction in work, the challenge of forming satisfying relationships or issues with money, food or sex. You may feel unfulfilled, bored or creatively inhibited. All of these difficulties affect the quality of your life. Psychotherapy and counselling provide an effective treatment for just such disorders and concerns and can contribute significantly to your mental health, sense of well-being and to managing your life more effectively.
