Walk Inniú Counselling Psychotherapy Outdoors is David Staunton’s response to provide people in Ireland with an introduction and access to Ecotherapy. Although the term is sometimes used to refer to other various nature-based therapies, at Walk Inniú we use the phrase to mean a well-informed, professional and effective, evidenced based integrative counselling psychotherapeutic approach. Ecotherapy is experiencing strong growth here in Ireland, following advances in the USA and the UK where David had the privilege of training with two of the leading contributors on the subject, Hayley Marshal and the late and much missed Martin Jordan.
Walk Inniú, (a union of both English and Irish vernacular), literally means ‘Walk Today’. The use of the Irish word inniú (today) is quite deliberate as it is pronounced ‘in you’ reminding clients of the person centred ethos which underpins the counselling psychotherapy provided. David believes that you know in you what’s best for you and whilst he will gently and respectfully encourage you to take steps today – you take them at a time when you feel it’s appropriate. With David at Walk Inniú the client decides the ‘who, what, why, where and when’ of their counselling.
If you so wish, David also offers counselling psychotherapy in the more traditional indoor consulting room. For more information on our outdoor locations please click here. David at Walk Inniú provides counselling psychotherapy fully compliant with the Code of Ethics and Practice (2018) as agreed by the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP).
