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.

The aim of Change Therapy is to help adults whose lives are in need of balancing, through changing 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, join me now and start your journey of positive change.

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. An article in the Guardian newspaper on the 7th April 2021, further reinforces the concensus in certain medical circles that Walking Therapy should be considered over analgesics.

Change Therapy embraces this notion, and offers the unique therapy of Walking in Nature, which encourages positive growth, promotes confidence and increases Wellbeing. I draw on various psychological strategies to guide you towards improving your self-esteem, compassion for others, empathy, respect and acceptance of self. It may be that Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is what you require, or person centred counselling, however the best way to find what you really need to change, is by getting in touch with me and together we can explore the best way forward.

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 to others.

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.

Remember that these therapies, involve walking, however if you have difficulties in walking, 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.

Online mindfulness and other confidential therapies are available on an extremely limited basis. Please use the contact page to get in touch. I do not charge for my services, but if you feel that you should contribute something, I would instead invite you to donate whatever you wish to the charity for adults with disabilities – Get2gether
