Human-Nature Counselling Society is a non-profit organization specializing in providing professional mental health services to children, youth, adults, and families primarily in outdoor locations.

Our services and programs are grounded in our belief that for some people counselling in an outdoor setting is what they are looking for regarding their mental health support. 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.

COVID UPDATE AS OF JANUARY 5, 2022: Human-Nature Counselling is closely following the Public Health Orders outlined by the BCCDC. We will update our policies regarding programming after the January 18, 2022 announcement.
