Walk & Talk Therapy

What is Walk and Talk Therapy?

Walk and Talk Therapy offers a novel twist to traditional counselling, where sessions unfold outdoors, strolling side by side. This ambiance fosters a dynamic and spontaneous conversation, cradled by nature’s serenity.

Why Choose Walk and Talk Therapy?

  • Nature’s Healing Power: Natural settings can induce relaxation and diminish feelings of stress and anxiety (Hartig, Mitchell, de Vries, & Frumkin, 2014). 
  • Physical Activity: The act of walking releases endorphins, which are natural mood enhancers, potentially augmenting therapeutic outcomes (Mammen & Faulkner, 2013). 
  • Dynamic Setting: Movement during therapy can spark fluid thought processes and foster open dialogues (Jordan & Hinds, 2016).
