Walk and talk therapy is a simple variation of traditional counselling, engaged outdoors. Instead of the therapy being conducted within four clinical walls, the therapeutic process is taken out of the counselling room and in to nature with the psychotherapist.
Walk Talk Therapy gets you moving - both literally and figuratively – reaping benefits both mentally and physically. Here are just some of the reasons why Walk Talk therapy is a great approach to choose:-
The emphasis in Walk Talk Therapy is on the therapy, and the walking is a secondary benefit.
You set the pace of the session. You should not expect an extremely strenuous workout or any sort of personal training. If you prefer a meditative, relaxing session of walking or a more active session. Walk Talk Therapy will match your pace.
If the weather is bad, we can still meet up in the counselling room. The Swedish have a saying “there is no bad weather, only bad clothing” but it is always your choice whether we conduct walk talk therapy or conduct the therapy in the counselling room. Clients are usually happy to have the challenge. I am very happy to work in all weather conditions.
My name is Carla. I am a qualified Person-Centred Therapist specialising in a unique intervention called Walk and Talk Therapy, which combines traditional talk therapy with the physical exercise of walking.
