"... going out I found was really going in." John Muir
Currently there are only a limited number of slots for Counselling in the Countryside due to Covid 19. Please get in touch with any queries regarding availability.
The Nook is located just a few minutes away from Bolsterstone situated on the north eastern boundary of the Peak District. Because of this Woman to Woman is able to offer therapy sessions in the countryside to those who love being in the outdoors and closer to nature. This is often known as Walk Talk Therapy.
Experience and research indicates that nature has a therapeutic impact on those that engage with it. This is the case whether interaction is passive or active. Using the countryside as the setting for therapy gives the client opportunities to relate either directly or indirectly with the landscape. For some, just being in The Great Outdoors as a back drop to the therapeutic process may be enough. Others may want to focus more intentionally on the environment around them using their senses and becoming aware of their inner and outer responses. This may then provide a tool to explore their emotional and psychological circumstances. Whichever is chosen - and it may be a mixture of the two - the experience of being in a more natural landscape is an enriching and healing one.
Walks are preset and have been risk assessed to ensure your safety as far as possible. You will need to wear suitable footwear and clothing taking the weather conditions into account.
Outdoor sessions take place in a woodland setting not far from Bolsterstone. We will need an indoor session initially as part of the assessment and contracting process. Health and safety and maintaining confidentiality in the outdoors will also be discussed in this session. If the weather is too poor when an outdoor session has been planned then the therapy session will need to take place indoors at The Nook. (This will not be possible if there are restrictions in place due to the Covid 19 pandemic). I wil l contact you before the session if the weather is bad.
Please feel free to get in touch with any questions.
