Choose your environment.

WHERE WE GO

I combine years of research on the benefits of walking in nature with the effectiveness of talk therapy. You have the choice of different paths; to have your session walking & talking by the seaside along the sand and water or amongst the trees in the park.

WHAT WE TALK ABOUT

What are some of the issues we work on together? Depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, adjusting to life changes, stress reduction, anger management, family problems, relationship problems, self-esteem & even emotions related to the climate crisis.

WHO MY CLIENTS ARE

No matter your background or where you are in life, all are welcome. I have worked with expats, athletes, entrepreneurs, refugees, military, ex-military, first responders (firefighters, police, paramedics), nurses, doctors, teachers, students, etc.

Meet Nicole.

My name is Nicole Gaines & I created SAND & PSY to combine my two passions, counseling & nature, in a more effective treatment. After 10 years of traditional psychotherapy practice, I am convinced that turning towards the outdoors is an important part of healing & overall psychological wellbeing.
