Explore the benefits of therapy outdoors

Robust mental health in the face of difficulty is a challenge that comes to all of us at some point in our lives

Whether you’re dealing with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or simply need a space for personal reflection, therapy outdoors offers a unique combination of physical activity, natural serenity, and therapeutic support. It’s a chance to find clarity, gain perspective, and discover your inner strengths while taking steps towards a healthier and more fulfilling life.

Heading into nature has a profound impact on our mental and physical well-being. It’s not just about taking a stroll; it’s an opportunity to release those feel-good endorphins while engaging in meaningful conversations. If the idea of traditional in-person or Zoom counselling doesn’t resonate with you, therapy outdoors might be the perfect fit.

Therapy Outdoors at Lifestorm Counselling

Bringing counselling & the great outdoors together

Build your resilience

Engaging in therapy outdoors cultivates resilience by exposing you to the challenges of nature. Navigating different terrains and weather conditions helps you develop grit, determination, and the ability to overcome obstacles, both in therapy and in life.

Boost your physical health

Regular physical activity, such as walking during counselling sessions, has numerous physical health benefits. It can improve cardiovascular health, boost energy levels, and contribute to better sleep patterns – all of which are crucial for overall well-being.

Walk side by side

Instead of sitting across from each other in a traditional office setting, we walk side by side, exploring the world around us. This helps to create a more comfortable space for you to share your thoughts, feelings, and emotions, without judgement or stigma.

Therapy Outdoors: The Process

  • Free Initial Conversation: To get started, we’ll have a short conversation online or by telephone at no cost to you. This allows us to get to know each other and determine if therapy outdoors is the right approach for you.
  • Booking Your First Walk: Once we decide to embark on this journey together, I’ll schedule our first walk into my diary, and we’ll discuss practical details such as routes and parking.
  • Tailored Walks: Walking sessions last an hour and cost £50 per session. I will find routes based on your fitness level, walking experience, and time constraints. We’ll focus on your unique needs and goals throughout our time together.
  • Location and Timing: I currently offer therapy outdoors within an 18 mile radius of Baughurst, Hampshire. We can start our walks on weekdays anytime between 8:45 am and 4pm, and on weekends too. Starting points will depend on your transportation options, whether we leave from your front door for local routes or arrange to meet elsewhere. I believe in embracing the elements, and we will walk in all but the worst weather conditions.
  • Be Prepared: Suitable outdoor footwear and clothing are essential for your comfort and safety during our sessions. Depending on your circumstances, you may wish to consult your GP before undertaking any exercise.
