Welcome to Nature Inspired Therapy. My name is Renata Anukaite.
I am a qualified, accredited and experienced Bilingual Counsellor/Psychotherapist (hold B.Sc (Hons) degree in Counselling & Psychotherapy. I am also an accredited member of Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP).
I offer One - to - One counselling for adults such as General Counselling/Psychotherapy, Fertility Counselling, Counselling Outdoors (Ecotherapy).
My practice is located in a beautiful setting, just 3 miles outside Waterford city. Clients have a choice either to work indoors or outdoors. Sessions can be in English or Lithuanian.
There are many reasons why someone might decide to go for counselling. They might feel they need to find new and more effective ways of dealing with particular situation or they might be experiencing a particular problem and feel a need to talk to someone about it in confidence.
A qualified and experienced Counsellor can offer a person a safe and nonjudgmental space to talk about their issues, their concerns. The therapist can help to make positive changes in order to heal, energize and influence positive change in their situations and relationships. Some clients may need only a few sessions to notice an improvement and others may need more long term therapy depending on the issues they would like to resolve.
I practice as a Integrative Counsellor & Psychotherapist. I use different approaches such as Person - Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Ecotherapy, Art Therapy etc. in order to create individualized therapy plans to suit each client and their issue. I believe in the healing power of nature and integrate nature based interventions into my practice. I also integrate aspects of mindfulness in the therapy.

Some of the issues often dealt with in counselling include:
- bereavement and loss,
- self esteem issues,
- fertility related stress,
- life changes,
- low mood,
- fear etc.
As therapist through counseling and treatment, I can help the client to recover motivation, perspective, and joy that they once had in their life.
What to expect in the First session?
Sessions usually last about 50min - 60min.
The first session includes an assessment which can take a little longer. The initial assessment will explore your reasons for attending counselling and your therapeutic goals. I also provide between sessions support, guidance and give handouts to support therapeutic process.
Specific Fertility Counselling aims to enhance couples and individuals' experience of fertility treatment and support the person in resolving any difficulties that may hinder this. Unhelpful issues could include: social isolation relating to disclosure, stress relating to the treatment, negative predictions about the future, low mood, relationship issues etc.
Individuals might benefit from different types of counselling at different stages of fertility treatment such as Impplication Counselling, Therapeutic Counselling or Support Counselling.
Support Counselling can offer general support for a short term before, during or after the treatment. Implications Counselling involves a minimum one session. It focuses on exploring the thoughts and feelings that may arise when becoming a donor recipient. Therapeutic Counselling offers longer term counselling to support the client to overcome symptoms relating to low mood, stress,, anxiety etc.
Ecotherapy sessions can be held indoors or outdoors in nature (in a woodland area on a farm or in the garden). As every person's needs and requirements are unique I offer various options depending what client prefers. Sessions are usually about an hour.
Ecotherapy is a very mindful therapeutic approach. It uses a range of practices in order to help us connect with nature. Ecotherapy can be beneficial to any individual as nature is well known to be a great healer.
Many clients say that working in nature is a more relaxed environment than the counseling office. Being in nature often evokes inspiration and transformation for many people.
