Walking the Talk
Being outdoors can be naturally therapeutic. I believe that taking therapy outside allows us to more fully engage our senses.
You may feel stress or anxiety, depression, shame, anger, identity crisis – or you may not know what it is you’re feeling. Gentle, mindful walking alongside someone allows you, quite literally, to see things from a different perspective.
The psychological, physical and emotional benefits of spending time outdoors are well documented. Nature can offer us a safe space to take a moment to breathe, reflect and think: it offers the possibility of inner peace and can enhance our creativity.
The act of walking is mindful: we’re in the here and now, freed from the confines of four walls. We can move forward, step into transitions and embrace personal growth. Walking in nature can be both grounding and freeing.
I offer walk and talk therapy in all seasons and all weathers. It suits all ages and if we work together, you will be the one that sets the pace. I have chosen an outdoor space that is safe and public, but not crowded. It’s accessible via public transport and has ample parking, as well as toilets and a place to purchase refreshments
We all have, at some level, an inherent connection with nature. Walking therapy offers a chance to reconnect, creating the possibility of change for the better
