Walk And Talk Therapy
Walk and Talk Therapy is just like it sounds-we will be outside walking during therapy instead of being in my office. It offers a relaxing environment where you can share your struggles and life situations in a more meditative way.
Why is it helpful?
Walk & Talk Therapy gets you moving- literally and figuratively.
It’s conducted outdoors, which can be very grounding and relaxing.
You set your own pace, which can be empowering physically and emotionally.
Research studies show that physical activity can improve the mental and physical health. Physical activity has also been shown to reduce levels of depression and anxiety and can help to prevent depressive symptoms.
You set the pace of the session. If you prefer a meditative, relaxing session of walking or a more active, fast-paced session, Walk and Talk Therapy will match your pace.
Walk and Talk FAQ's
How is Walk and Talk Therapy different from traditional therapy?
The main difference is that sessions occur outdoors as we walk together.
What about bad weather?
You make the “weather call.” There is an office location available.
Is this a cardio workout?
No. It involves slow to moderate walking and you set the pace. Sessions are focused on allowing you to process your thoughts and feelings.
I’m not in shape, can I do it?
Yes. You set the pace, and if breaks are necessary that’s fine. It is my goal to support you and ensure your comfort level.
Can we switch back to the office if I find I don’t enjoy this? Or can we alternate from week to week?
Absolutely. Again, it is your choice to take the session outdoors for a Walk & Talk session or to remain inside the office if that is what you prefer. I respect your choice and honor what feels best for you.
How can I maintain confidentiality if I am outside?
We will discuss how we will work together during our initial session which will take place in the office, so we can find ways you will feel comfortable with.
What is the cost for Walk and Talk Therapy?
Cost of the session is £40
