Walk and talk therapy –
counselling combined with the healing power of nature

I believe that being outside and experiencing the healing power of nature can make it easier to think about what’s going on inside, too. That’s why I offer walk and talk counselling in Chorley and in the Bamber Bridge area at a pace to suit you, in a place that feels right.

However, if you don’t live locally, or don’t feel able to commit to outdoor therapy, I also hold online counselling sessions, so I can offer you a confidential virtual space to help you explore your issues.

Where do I work?

I offer walk and talk counselling in Chorley and in Bamber Bridge. Both locations have a range of footpaths and routes. I can adapt these routes to suit your needs, allowing for wheelchair accessibility and the need for sitting breaks, or a more robust ramble if you’re feeling a little more adventurous. Each session lasts an hour, but I offer a free no-obligation telephone consultation beforehand where you can ask any questions and see if the type of therapy I offer works for you.

Astley Park

Home to Astley Hall, one of the Northwest’s most historic houses, this popular Chorley park occupies over 40 hectares and offers a diverse selection of paths and routes. Whether you want to take a leisurely walk around the walled garden or a shaded stroll through the scenic woods, there’s a route for everyone, and ample seated areas too.


Suitability: The park offers benches at seating at regular intervals if you’ve prefer not to stay on your feet while having counselling in Chorley, so I can tailor your route to take that into account. There are also a number of wheelchair-accessible routes available. There’s also a range of woodland routes which are ideal if you prefer to stay moving and like to explore.

Cuerden Valley Park

Following the River Lostock on its meandering journey and spread over 650 acres, this picturesque park in Bamber Bridge offers a choice of woodland walks and the chance to see a wealth of wildlife. There are a number of car parks and entrances throughout the park, making it conveniently accessible when thinking about counselling in Chorley, Bamber bridge, and also counselling in Preston or Leyland.


Suitability: The park’s extensive pathways make it ideal for the more confident walker, though shorter strolls are an option round the Pinetum and Walled Orchard during walk and talk counselling sessions.
