Human-Nature Counselling Society is a non-profit organization specializing in meeting the needs of children, youth, adults, and families seeking an alternative approach to mental health services.

Our engaging, experiential and nature-based counselling services and programs are grounded in our belief in the healing power of connection with the natural world. It is from this shared value that we work with families from a systems approach, acknowledging the importance of  family, community and environment on a person’s sense of well-being. We aim to make our services as accessible and barrier-free as possible, meeting with clients in nearby nature locations across a wide geographic region to accommodate the needs of families/individuals (including throughout the Greater Victoria Area, Cowichan Valley, and Sea to Sky regions of BC).

We are grateful to be able to continue providing in-person counselling services outside throughout the pandemic as health guidelines allow. Sessions are also available online.

Support Access to Human-Nature Counselling

To facilitate no-cost/low-cost services we need your help! Donating helps us reach our goal of providing nature-based therapy to those who need it, regardless of circumstance. These services are needed now more than ever, and Nature-Based therapy is a highly accessible and safe way for people to get the support they need during these uncertain times.
