Walking Therapy Training

There are so many benefits to taking your practice outside.

Are you a therapist or coach interested in learning more about walking and talking with clients? 

There are so many benefits to taking your practice outside.

I offer practical, straightforward 1:1 training to help get you started so you can feel confident to take clients into the great outdoors.

Come and learn with me.

I’ve been walking with clients for a few years now. I began in Manchester City Centre, finding quiet spots amongst the hustle and bustle of the city. I now walk with people in various green locations around Manchester and Cheshire. 

It’s a very important part of my practice, and I’m passionate about the benefits of walking and talking.

I would love to pass on what I’ve learned from many walks with clients so you can make walk and talk a part of your practice, too. 

What are the benefits of taking your practice outdoors?


  • You get to move!!
  • Being outdoors provides both therapist and client a screen break and an opportunity to move.
  • It can be helpful for some clients to be side-by-side walking with you rather than making full eye contact across a therapy room.
  • It can provide grounding and stabilisation through movement and offers an opportunity to process painful emotions while moving the body.
  • As we walk, we get a boost of endorphins and feel-good chemicals 
  • Nature provides a natural grounding experience.
  • Clients often report feeling less claustrophobic and having more space to breathe, think and feel in outdoor spaces.

What’s included in the training?

The 1.5-hour practical CPD training will include the following aspects of Walking Therapy:

  • Walking Practice
  • Assessment
  • Setting Boundaries
  • Health and Safety Considerations
  • How to bring Nature and Mindfulness into walking therapy.
