Our Therapy

Eco Therapy -Depression & Anxiety


Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counselling in outdoor spaces, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life. 


Trauma & PTSD - Emotional Healing through Clay Modelling


 Modelling Clay is a natural resource that has no right or wrong way to be used.  Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. 


Relationships & Emotional Intelligence Workshops


Relationship Emotional Workshop can be beneficial to individuals who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Workshops are held in a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.
