Putting one foot in front of the other
There’s a rhythm and flow as we think, talk and walk. It’s a great alternative to my office based sessions and I believe there’s a place for both in our work together. Taking therapy outside into nature can be very beneficial because it releases endorphins, serotonin and oxytocin, while strengthening your connection between your mind and your body.
Side by side
There’s an opportunity to channel your feelings as you walk and be more openly expressive with body language. New perspectives and clarity can emerge as we walk together side by side. Here are just some of the benefits:
- Improve mood
- Increase energy
- Reduce tension and anxiety
- Cope with stress
- Improve sleep
- Increase feelings of well-being
- Improve self-image
Where shall we walk?
Walking Therapy sessions are conducted outdoors at various locations in the Greater Manchester area. I walk with people in parks, in the countryside and also in the city centre. Our first session will take place online or by telephone and from then on outside.
We can also do a mix of online and walking sessions.
