If you are struggling with an eating disorder, we understand how overwhelming and isolating it can be. You may feel like you're trapped in a constant cycle of negative thoughts and behaviors, unable to break free and live the life you deserve. But don't lose hope - there is a refreshing, transformative and healing experience that awaits you.
Imagine walking through a lush green forest, surrounded by fresh air and sunshine, with a highly experienced therapist guiding you towards a path of healing and recovery.
Our nature-walk therapy sessions for individuals with eating disorders are designed to help you find your way back to a healthy relationship with food, your body, and yourself.
Unlike traditional talk therapy and counseling, our one-on-one nature walk-n-talks provide an opportunity to connect with nature and engage the senses, which can be incredibly calming and grounding. It encourages relaxation, reduces stress, and promotes self-reflection, making it an ideal environment for talk therapy and counseling. You'll be able to explore your thoughts and emotions in a safe and supportive environment while experiencing the beauty and serenity of nature.
Our therapist, Laura, understands the complexity and sensitivity of eating disorders, and offers a compassionate and non-judgmental approach to treatment. With evidence-based techniques such as cognitive-behavioral therapy and mindfulness, she will help you understand the root causes of your disorder, develop new coping skills, and build a positive self-image. You'll be able to progress at your own pace and work towards recovery with a supportive therapist by your side.
