Change Therapy

Change Therapy is here to help you manage and cope with difficult periods of your life, by taking you on a journey of change, therefore I am offering therapies such as Walk and Talk and Walking in Nature just for you – these are designed to show a different perspective on the world we live in, and ultimately help increase self awareness, confidence and give you some calmness of the mind. We can explore other traditional psychological strategies to supplement this alternative approach to becoming less stressed throughout your life journey.

The aim of Change Therapy is to help adults whose lives are needing balanced, through changing their behaviour in a positive way. It may be that you feel anxious or depressed, or your life is getting on top of you; whatever you are struggling with, get in touch and start your journey of positive change.

I also run unique and specialized sessions for parents whose children are autistic or have special needs. There is heavy demand for the therapies that I am offering, therefore booking up quickly to guarantee a place, is advised. See here for more information

The idea of Walking in Nature©, has recently been subscribed to patients by the NHS in Shetland, which have shown that many health issues such as stress and anxiety are massively reduced over time. Change Therapy embraces this notion, and offers the unique therapy of Walking in Nature, which encourages positive growth, promotes confidence and increases Well-being. I draw on various psychological strategies to guide you towards  improving self-esteem, compassion for others, empathy, respect and acceptance of self.

Are you finding that your life is not your own, and you are under so much pressure, with no time to yourself? Are you struggling to cope with the demands of everyone around you or in need of help to balance your life? If the answer is Yes, then join me on a Walk and Talk session where we will discuss how best to turn your life around in a positive way.

How does it work?

During your first session, we will discuss issues of confidentiality and how you will negotiate encountering other people when out walking. Wherever we are, seeing people walking and talking side by side is a very common sight, and we will appear no different either.

We meet in a safe space, never isolated from people, and always remain in the public domain.

For some people, walking outside might itself confront issues they would like to address such as a fear of open spaces or a fear of feeling judged for their appearance. Having a therapist on your side might ease a return to engaging in social situations.

Remember that these therapies, involve walking, however if you have difficulties in walking, perhaps using a wheelchair or relying on walking aids, or simply cannot walk too far, please rest assured this is not a barrier to accessing this therapy. Sitting down frequently on our walk, is actively encouraged! The pace of walking is slow and does not involve long distances, with plenty opportunities to relax.

****Due to the ongoing Covid pandemic, all walks are suspended until May 2021****

Online mindfulness and other confidential therapies are available on a limited basis. Please use the contact page to get in touch. There is no charge for this.
