What is talk and walk counselling?

Walk and Talk counselling is literally walking and talking, out in the open.

Is it confidential?

As I am unable to guarantee confidentiality, I do make every effort to take in our surroundings during our time together.  You will need to be aware of the surroundings as I am unable to prevent others from potentially hearing what is being said.

Why choose Walk and Talk counselling?

If you like being outdoors or want to get out doors in the open then have a think about Walk and Talk counselling.  There is something about being out in the open and the fresh air, regardless of the weather, to have that feeling of openness and space, that can’t be replicated in a counselling room or on the phone.

I offer walk and talk counselling sessions at three different locations; Trentham Gardens – ST4 8NT (please note that there is an entrance charge to the gardens), Longton Park – ST3 4AT or Silverdale Country Park – ST7 8BS.  The choice of where you would like your walk and talk counselling sessions is yours.

How much does it cost?

£45 per counselling session for over 18’s

£40 per counselling session for students and OAPs

What is the process?

We will have an initial free 15-minute (or so) telephone (or on Zoom if you prefer) assessment.  Here you will have the opportunity to ask me any questions you may have.  We will discuss what has brought you to seek counselling and I will need to ask you a few questions. It is also an opportunity for you to decide if I am the right counsellor for you.  During this contact, I will also talk to you about the admin side of things and if you would like to go ahead with counselling with me, then we will book your first session.  With Walk and Talk Counselling, I do like the first session to be on zoom if that is possible, it is a way of us meeting and we will be able to recognise each other when we do meet, if you are unable to use Zoom then let me know and we can discuss our options.

If you would like to make an appointment, please feel free to email me at: ellen@butterfly-effect.me.uk or you can use the contact form on the website.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.
