Green Space Therapy and Counselling

Hi, I’m Alison, welcome to my site. I provide a therapy and counselling service based near Hinckley, Leicestershire. I specialise in nature therapy; where with the healing power of nature, I will work with you in a woodland setting or country park space. Working with movement, re-connecting your mind and body, to create awareness, understanding and clarity for you. 

 The focus of my work is predominantly with bereavement, loss, anxiety and self concept (how you view yourself & the relationship you have with yourself). 

I want to work with you to support you to overcome life’s challenges in a safe, non-judgmental and accepting space. Life can be full of uncertainty and throw challenges at us. Which can, at times, leave us feeling lost, overwhelmed or alone. I am here to help you make sense of what is happening for you, what you are feeling and the emotions you are experiencing to help you gain greater understanding of yourself.

As a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor, acknowledging what is or has happened for you and the impact on you is at the forefront. So I recognise your individuality and work with you to understand you. Along with your situation and what has brought you here. Whatever your reason for considering working together, this could be the first step to moving towards where you want to be. As well as, increasing self-compassion and improving your wellbeing.

A Range Of Ways To Work Together

To do this I offer a range of ways to work together, to best meet your needs which includes Nature Therapy working outdoors at a local country park or woodland, face to face in my office near Hinckley, Leicestershire and Online Therapy through the platform Zoom (available no matter where you are in the U.K.)

There are times when what you are feeling becomes difficult to convey using words so I am able to draw upon other therapeutic approaches such as Natural Mindfulness, Grounding techniques and creative working.

I have experience of life’s challenges such as being born with Spina Bifida, having cancer resulting in infertility and the path to becoming a parent. I have enjoyed the highs and suffered the lows.  

I have been a nature nerd for as long as I can remember and when I qualified as a counselling therapist I knew I wanted to help support and nourish my clients alongside the healing power and beauty that nature offers. The wealth of scientific studies and research evidences the vast array of benefits of working with nature in this way. 

I tell you this, because just like you, I am human too and I can help you find yourself again, become unstuck and unlock those answers within you.   

Taking the first step to invest in yourself and access counselling can be really daunting, trying to find the right therapist for you, so I offer a free 15 minute consultation to see how comfortable you feel talking to me. To save you time and energy, you can book this directly from my contact page finding the right date and time for you.
