Talking Therapy

Sharing the journey

Talking is an effective therapy for a range of common problems. Whether you are coping with stress, anxiety or depression, or facing difficulties at work or in your personal life, setting aside time to actively focus on improving your situation with a psychotherapist is a step in the right direction.

Walking Therapy

Healing in the natural environment

Walking improves mental health. Being outdoors has a positive impact on emotional wellbeing. The natural environment and exercise are a mood lifting combination that reduce stress, anxiety and depression and increase self-esteem and cognitive functioning.


Wild Counselling

Wild Counselling draws on the benefits of walking and talking to find innovative solutions to psychological problems. Using a diverse range of environments to hold sessions, and adopting a sense of freedom for clients to work in a way that helps them best, Wild Counselling will help you step out of negative spaces and into greater contentment, resilience and improved relationships.

Our Services

Walk and talk therapy

Walking improves mental health

Our walk and talk sessions maximise the therapeutic effects of being active in a neutral outdoor environment to fuel therapeutic change. Sessions begin at a mutually agreed starting point and follow a circular route, ending back at the start after 50 minutes. We offer ‘walk and talk’ sessions in natural and urban environments.

What our clients say about...

Walk and Talk Therapy:

“I think the walk and talk aspect of therapy accelerated the benefit I was able to get from the therapeutic process”.

“Being in nature is something that’s helpful to me, along with the ever-changing view and breeze. It somehow helps put things into perspective too. It’s a democratic and equal space too”.

Our therapy:

“It increased my self confidence and allowed me to be more comfortable in my own skin”.

“It helped initially to sort the chaos in my mind and begin to slow down huge anxious waves that had started to overwhelm me. Then I started to achieve some clarity about what was happening”.

“It has helped me live more comfortably with things that happened to me and granted me greater perspective on different relationships and events”.

Our therapists:

“She was kind, determined to help, balanced, realistic and accepting; a real partner in the work that was required”.

“Her calmness, knowledge, analysis and encouragement was what I needed”.

“I felt I was in the hands of a very good steward and guide. I felt fully accepted”.
