A typical individual session is 60 minutes long. Individual sessions of 90 minutes duration are possible.
Group sessions are typically 1.5-2 hours long each with a short break.
Forest bathing sessions usually take between two and three hours but can be adapted to suit your schedule.
HOW LONG DOES EACH SESSION TAKE?
WHERE WILL I BE SEEN?
Individual sessions usually take place online. Online sessions offer the most cost and time-effective means of receiving support. Face-to-face sessions may be possible for clients living in the local area, in a mutually convenient location in the community, or in nature using local walking trails.
Group-based support is offered online and face-to-face. Group courses are advertised on this website as they become available.
Forest bathing walks take place in local nature spots in the Schaffhausen area. Bespoke walks can take place further afield upon request.
WHAT FEES APPLY?
The standard hourly rate for individual sessions is 100CHF per hour. It is not possible to arrange payment via insurance providers at this time and this has been reflected in the hourly rate.
Group courses vary in price depending upon the nature, content and duration of the group. Group sessions open to the public will always cost significantly less than the standard hourly rate.
Private forest bathing walks cost 50CHF per individual session. Private forest bathing group walks are priced separately depending upon the requirements.
As a restorative business I donate 2.5% of my earnings to TreeSisters.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT FIRST CONTACT?
You are welcome to arrange a free initial consultation over the telephone. Over 30 minutes you can explore with me what kind of support you are seeking and how I might be able to help.
It is possible to meet for a more intensive consultation online or face-to-face if you are unsure what is happening for you and what you might need. Standard hourly rate fees would apply. If I believe your needs might be best met by another provider, I can support you to access them.
WHAT IF I CHANGE MY MIND?
Access to my service is entirely voluntary and you are free to change your mind at any time.
A 24-hour notice period is required for cancellation of individual sessions, including private forest therapy, otherwise standard rate fees apply. Payments can be made at the end of each session or invoiced on a monthly basis.
Places on group courses are paid for in advance and can be cancelled for free up to two weeks prior to the start of the group. Within two weeks of the course beginning, refunds of 50% are offered in the event of cancellation.
Bespoke forest bathing walks can be cancelled for free up to one week in advance, otherwise a charge of 50% will apply.
