Our broad range of therapies offer an alternative solution for clients who find it hard to open-up, talk, or trust, orwould like to try something different to a ‘clinical’ setting. It encompasses a safe, containing way of supporting clients at their own pace.

Using an evidence-based, alternative psychotherapy framework that allows longer, one-off, or less frequent sessions in nature; clinical, weekly appointments can be avoided. All services and retreats are bespoke and can be tailored to suit your individual needs.

Individuals, couples, families, and groups all welcome.
