A Pathway Forward
Are you feeling anxious, sad, stressed, low in mood or overwhelmed? Do you overthink, repeat the same patterns or struggle to regulate your emotions?
Do you want to feel calm?
Do you want to be able to feel confident in managing your emotions?
I understand how challenging it can be to navigate the complexities of growing up as a young person, and I'm here to support you and help you find your way, help you build emotional resilience and develop coping strategies.
Walk and talk therapy sessions
Walk and talk therapy sessions are an alternative, holistic experience to the counselling room. Walking side by side at your pace. Being in nature releases endorphins which in turn reduces overwhelm, depression, anxiety, stress, and grief.
They take place in The Quarry Park in Shrewsbury, Shropshire and alternative routes in the stunning Shropshire countryside, local to Shrewsbury. Fresh air, nature, talking and exercise are all good for our wellbeing. Mindfulness is something that can be incorporated into your session, being mindful helps you get in touch with your thoughts and feelings and recognise the sense of calm.
For young people who are active and engaged with their environment, this technique can help develop the ability to stay focused on the present moment which is particularly helpful for treating anxiety and depression and other mental health issues.
For those who would prefer not to walk & talk, my counselling room is always available. Where I also offer reiki, a beautiful therapy to relax you, ease stress and tension and help with well being.
Ava, Serenities Path therapy dog, is such a gorgeous walk & talk companion when appropriate! Ava loves coming along and is such a great source of comfort, a real helping paw, during face-to-face and online sessions too.
Ava & I have enjoyed sponsored walks together, raising awareness and funds for Mind UK and Parkinson’s UK.
