Special considerations for responding to Covid-19:
We at Human-Nature are committed to reducing the spread of Covid-19 in our community and vulnerable populations through implementing the requirements of physical distancing. During this epidemic we are reminded of the essential importance of our connection with the natural world; and we encourage clients to still find ways to access nature, and feel the grounding presence of bird song, fresh air, and the many life forms of spring emerging. In accordance with BC’s restart plan, we are currently offering in-person sessions outdoors only (with the appropriate precautions in place). We are also happy to provide telehealth services to clients through secure and encrypted platforms when distancing is not possible, or when there are health concerns.
See our Covid page for more details regarding in person sessions.
Services we provide include:
- Nature-Based Counselling
- Individual counselling
- Child, youth and family counselling
- Couples and marriage counselling
- Group therapy programs
- Community workshops, retreats, and on-going groups
- Educational training for students, professionals, and organizations
- Contribution to the body of knowledge on Ecotherapy and Adventure Therapy practices
