WOODLAND walk and talk is not available at the moment. Apologies.
June 2023 update
An opportunity to have therapy outside the room. This will be in a beautiful private woodland west of Ashford. .
The mental health benefits of being in a natural environment are countless and this opportunity will be ideal for those who find sitting in a closed space facing the therapist difficult. We will be doing the therapy side by side as we walk. If this is you, keep checking in for the start date to register your interest. Call firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for more details.
