WALK AND TALK
Alongside face to face counselling Deborah offers Walk and Talk therapy. Outdoor therapy and walking side by side can release tension and feel less formal, especially for introductions. When combined with face to face counselling it can offer another dynamic to therapy. The private grounds of The Old Rectory Clinic are tranquil, undisturbed and can facilitate a different approach to traditional therapy.
The Old Rectory Clinic in Iron Acton is conveniently located with easy access from Yate, Chipping Sodbury, Frampton Cotterell, Coalpit Heath, Winterbourne, Westerleigh, Thornbury and the surrounding areas.
