Walking in Nature Works!

The idea of Walking in Nature, has recently been subscribed to patients by the NHS in Shetland, which have shown that health issues such as high blood pressure, anxiety and sadness, are massively reduced over time by walking in nature. Change Therapy embraces this notion, and offers the unique therapy of Walk and Talk, which encourages positive growth, promotes confidence and increases Wellbeing.

Change Therapy is the leading provider in Scotland of Walking in Nature, providing specialized therapies for parents/guardians connected with Autism, and for people struggling to adapt to life changes after serious illness, including heart attacks.

I use Counselling skills, Mentoring, various psychology strategies, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Mindfulness, to bring about the changes in the client. We meet in a safe space, never isolated from people, and our sessions are always confidential. Think of a typical session as therapy while walking, rather than sitting in an office with 4 walls – this way you are encouraged to embrace nature, while we find new ways to cope with life challenges.

About ChangeTherapy

I consider myself someone who 'thinks outside the box'; rather than following strict regimented instruction during the helping therapies; my belief is to frame therapies around the person, rather than try and make a person fit into a certain box. Educated at George Watson's College, in Edinburgh and then worked in Office Management/Administration for Local Government and Major Construction, before owning a retail Newsagent in the Blackhall area of Edinburgh. My training in Reiki and Healing started in 1997, and after attending college to complete my Counselling qualifications, I studied for 6 years with the Open University to obtain my Bachelor of Science degree, with Honours, studying Psychology and Counselling (including Autism) I have been involved for 22 years directly and indirectly in many capacities in the fields of Counselling for Autism, Special Needs, Adoption, HRT, Post-Cardiac Recovery, Alcohol Addiction, Gambling Addiction, Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, Anxiety and Sadness and Floating Harbor Syndrome.
