Walk and talk therapy outside in nature can be very therapeutic, as instead of sitting in front of your counsellor in a traditional therapy room, the counselling session takes place outdoors walking side by side.
Walking in nature can help release tension, enable conversation to flow and stimulate new thoughts and ideas. Walking side by side can feel a bit less intimidating and therefore, can make the counselling process a little easier. There is a wealth of research which shows the benefits of spending time in green spaces, particularly with regards to relieving stress and improving low mood.
Usually, the first session takes place at my practice, where we will agree on what type of walk you require, where we will go and how it might work. My office is next to a canal, near to Foxton Locks and there is also surrounding fields and countryside, so it provides a great base to begin your walking therapy journey!
