Human-Nature Counselling Society

MENU

Human-Nature provides children, youth, adults, and families with a unique counselling service that is grounded in our belief in the healing power of connection with the natural world.

We are fortunate to be based among the natural wonders of beautiful Victoria, BC, and serve communities throughout the Capital Regional District, including:

  • Victoria, Saanich, peninsula
  • Westshore communities and Sooke
  • Duncan and Cowichan Valley

Support Access to Human-Nature Counselling

To facilitate no-cost/low-cost services as we transition into a non-profit, 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. Help us keep children and families connected and thriving. Learn more on our donation page.

Covid-19 Response

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.  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.

Check out our new books!

We are excited about the release of our new book for New Society Publishing exploring our practice of nature-based therapy with kids and families. See more on our Resources page

We are also thrilled to announce the recent publication of our associate Dr Nevin Harper’s book (co-edited with Will W. Dobud), “Outdoor Therapies”. Available now on Amazon.
