What is walk and talk therapy?
Instead of meeting clients in the therapy room, I meet the client in nature. As the name suggests we simply walk and talk, walking side by side, it is much less intimidating and helps the client feel at ease instantly. We walk in a public park on a well planned route. We will meet up online first to make sure we are both suited to each other.
Sometimes it is hard to talk to family and friends and you just need that one person who holds space for you to be heard and understood with no judgments.
Moving in nature , connecting and healing this is a very powerful process. Then we walk we are in the flow and relaxed enough to talk, being in nature has a positive effect on your mental health, paring that with talking is a very positive experience it also enhances your physical well being too.
So it’s a win win win situation.
