Scania Price MBACP
Hi my name is Scania and I offer Counselling in Nature as well as in a conventional counselling room. Counselling in Nature is often called Ecotherapy, Rewilding or Walk and Talk. Have a look at my website to get a feel of what I do: www.thelifeyoulove.co.uk Give me a call, I know its a scary step taking that first leap into change and so I understand the courage it takes to make that call/email.
My aim: So you feel understood and supported, a place, to express your feelings in a safe and appropriate way. I don’t offer a promise of total happiness, but I do offer the opportunity to explore and accept your past experiences and move forward positively with your life. Together we go on a journey, we are equals in the process. A place where change can happen. Together we can explore the terrain.
I work in a conventional therapy setting (room) and also offer Eco therapy which is like conventional therapy but it takes place in nature.
Deciding to have counselling can be a very powerful and life-affirming choice. Sometimes it can feel not that easy or comfortable. You may find it confusing all these new emotions, want to give up. Be reassured that this is a normal part of the counselling process and it will get easier.
I have a philosophy in life that everyone has a right to be able to get in touch with themselves and sometimes these times coincide with not being financially abundant, I offer a sliding scale with price. Through amazing people, challenging people and the natural world, I believe with all my heart this has lead me to create “the life you love.” Which sole aim is to inspire, support and bring forth others into a life they will love too.
What is Eco Therapy?: Ecotherapy is typically conducted outdoors, so is sometimes called 'walk and talk' or simply 'outdoor therapy'. In some ways outdoor counselling sessions are the same as those conducted indoors, except that we meet for each 1 hr session in a natural space. Counselling and psychotherapy outdoors is grounded on the same foundations as conventional therapy, but has the added input of nature as a kind of co-therapist.
My Style as a Counsellor: Each client is different so my approach is suited to who you are and what we encounter on each of our sessions. I often work creatively if that also works for my client and is appropriate at the time.
Gong Therapy: The Gong can be profoundly emotional, and in the last few decades the use of music and musical instruments as a form of psychotherapy has become increasingly popular. I use psychotherapeutic techniques along with the Gong to treat a broad range of conditions, including psychological, cognitive, and emotional issues.
Training, qualifications & experience
I started off my career in Los Angeles with Entertainment Lawyers whilst living in Hollywood. I then moved back to the UK and was head of PR at an award winning outdoor sports brand. Each day never the same… black days…blue days… joyous and sad. I became aware this was my life to live and in that realisation my life changed. I changed tack to follow my new vocation in life, became a Holistic Therapist, a Sound Therapist (using the Gong) and a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, which has ignited a passion which grows ever more focused with each person I meet and exchange time with.
My professional experience includes working with people with common life problems, varies types of mental illness, addictions, anxiety, depression, sexual/physical abuse; adult children of alcoholics, university students, menopause, family issues, transgender, adults and adolescents. I have also been a counsellor at Dorset Rape Crisis (now STARRS)

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
