To be in nature is to reconnect with everything that makes us human.
Leaving behind the four walls of my office, for the embrace of nature, I now offer a unique blend of Walk & Talk or Rap & Roll - and "bilateral" techniques - to help the left and right sides of the brain mobilise stuck memory or emotions. It is the best, most responsive method I have found to-date - and is client-proven. However, some physical movements are not always possible for some clients and, therefore, sessions will be a bespoke experience for each individual.
It's so much more than a stroll or roll in the park.
Working outside provides a fresh, liberating 'space' to talk, explore, think, and just “be” what/who you need to be in that moment. Depending on your location, we might meet in a park, a sanctuary, on a beach and we might stop and mindfully explore nature, which helps us get in touch with our senses and induce a state of calm. Locations I regularly use are Bushy Park, Teddington, Ryde/Appley sea-front, Quarr Abbey, Ryde and the Isle of Wight Zoo.
Being outside in nature brings your blood-pressure down, reduces stress and anxiety, raises endorphins and serotonin, gently gets the body moving and regulates breathing.
Seeing the wood - and the trees...
I also work a lot with business people - and know it can be extremely hard for a senior professional or company owner to open up to someone outside, to talk about the highly personal issues that face you. Be assured that from me, you will have total confidentiality, a fair and balanced view, someone who will ask you key questions without you having to worrying about the impact of your answers. I'll help you assess your options - and the ones you've yet to think of - so you can achieve a different outcome.
Please note: clients need to be able to come to sessions in appropriate clothing (depending on where we decide to meet) and not carrying a bag (as bags impede movement), nor holding a drink-cup.
I have regular clinical supervision with a supervisor who is highly experienced in mind-body approaches.
