The Outdoor Therapist.
Rachel Hamilton; BA Hons, MBACP, Understanding Therapeutic Practice in Outdoor Natural Environments,  Open Water Swimming Coach.


I have always found a comfort in nature and I am passionate about the benefits of walking and talking outdoors.

I work with adults, both men and women of all ages and students struggling with mental health issues such as loss, anxiety, depression, relationships, stress, burn out and trauma. You do not have to be fit, we can walk, stroll or find a quiet place to sit.


 Moving the body enables us to release tensions, and stimulates new thoughts and ideas that can encourage change. It can liberate us from the sense of being stuck in life. 

Being in the open air can feel more freeing than sitting indoors.

This is a space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, options and choices, enabling you to work out how you want to move forward.

            Get in touch if you would like to  : 

  • Ease tension, stress and anxiety.

  • Recognise who you are and what makes you feel fulfilled.

  • Set time aside for yourself.

  • Improve your physical health.

  • Feel more connected to with wider world.

  • Find a space where you can share your burdens and feel understood.

  • Find tools that enable you to reset and self care.

  • Improve your confidence and self esteem.

  • Feel accepted and listened to.

"I was able to understand some of the things that I've never spoken much about before. I feel like I have gained new insight and new ways of looking at things. This has been really freeing and helpful."    Walking client
