Helping Clients Gain Clarity and Strength
“I help clients to clear away what is blocking them from experiencing joy and hope in their lives, moving them towards a new sense of possibility and self-empowerment.”
Sandy Kirkwood, MACP, RPC
Your choice of three locations:
- Glen Road in Gibsons, BC
- 1990 West 6th Ave, (at Maple Street) Vancouver
- Or as a gentle walk in nature, in a beautiful outdoor setting. This is called a Walking Counselling session.
Why Walking Counselling?
Ecotherapy is an emerging field that combines counselling with being outdoors, and has been shown to benefit mental health. Walking outdoors with a qualified counsellor can help you to relax and access more of your whole-brain creative insights. Walking and breathing deeply can reduce the anxiety or stress that sometimes accompanies counselling sessions in a more formal setting. Walking also releases endorphins that can boost your mood and give you a better baseline from which to tackle your issues. Walking with a counsellor in one of Vancouver’s beautiful natural settings is geared to your fitness level.
