Walking Therapy

Have you ever thought of having therapy while taking a walk? Walking Therapy combines traditional Counselling and Psychotherapy  with the physical exercise of walking outside in a natural outdoor setting.

Let's talk about it

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 usually conducted outdoors. We can choose a location and a time that fits in with both our schedules. I walk with people in parks, in the countryside and also in the city centre. Our first session will take place in my office and from then on outside.
