A and D Counselling is now able to offer outdoor counselling sessions. Research conducted by the mental health charity MIND into ecotherapy, shows that people with depression reported considerable mood improvement following a walk in the countryside. Other benefits of taking exercise in the open air are:

  Lowering of blood pressure
  Release of muscle tension
  Improved breathing
  Release of endorphins
Ecotherapy removes a person from everyday stressors and provides a neutral setting in which to contemplate issues and problems. Sessions last for 50 minutes and take place on our own 11 acre greenbelt site between Oldham and Saddleworth. Please email for more details: .
