Forest Therapy Victoria offers private sessions to individuals, couples, families, corporate organisations and community groups.
Forest Therapy Victoria is the first organisation in Australia to offer individual sessions provided by professional counsellors aligned with the Australian Counselling Association, who are also trained in Forest Therapy by the International Nature and Forest Therapy Alliance.
Forest Therapy as an intervention is a relatively new field in counselling. Initial research suggests it is effective in the treatment of anxiety, stress related issues, high blood pressure, and can aid in sleep issues. Anecdotal evidence from our experience suggests that it is also beneficial in the treatment of grief, trauma and high sensitivity, in people of all ages.
Individual sessions are made by appointment only and last for one to two hours and commence at our Croydon Hills rooms. Longer sessions by arrangement.
Couples looking for a relationship enrichment experience can book a two or three hour session from Croydon Hills. Other locations can be organised by arrangement.
A couples Forest Therapy session forms part of a longer process involving communication skills, conflict resolution, intimacy and affection, financial management, and core values. Forest Therapy can help a couple learn to destress together and experience the enjoyment of being relaxed in nature together.
A couples Forest Therapy session can also be used as an enrichment activity, a special date, or even a unique Valentine’s Day experience.
