Service Description

Walk and Talk sessions are counselling on the go! Therapy is conducted outdoors in the fresh air against a backdrop of lovely scenery and open spaces in a location that helps you feel at ease - this could be along the sea front or in a park. DOES THE THOUGHT OF SITTING IN AN OFFICE FEEL OVERWHELMING? Being outside alongside someone who is there for you, can be hugely beneficial. Walk and Talk counselling offers a chance to develop a therapeutic relationship and offers the flexibility to work at a pace that feels right for you. We are on common ground and you literally set the pace! GETTING ACTIVE The therapy may introduce walking into your life or fit in with your own existing routine of being active. Walking is known to be calming as well as a stimulus to new thoughts and ideas and research shows that it’s not only good for your physical health, but it is also your mental health too. You’ll probably be energised physically and mentally by the end of the session and that may carry on into the rest of the day and the week. MINDFULNESS Walk and Talk is a chance to experience mindfulness in action. You’ll be breathing and being in nature, which can be meditative. I can incorporate aspects of mindfulness into the session if that suits you. You can find ways of using the walk to get you out of your head and into the here and now. You’ll be connected to the outside world in a gentle way. If you are going through a life transition, have anxiety or are experiencing some kind of loss or grief this may be helpful in grounding you. THE GREAT BRITISH WEATHER! Well we are in the UK so expect rain! I intend to go ahead with the session in light rain and cold weather so it's important that you wear the appropriate clothing and footwear. I will text you 3 hours before the session to confirm or, in the case of heavy rain or extreme weather to rearrange. BEFORE WALKING THERAPY BEGINS All clients wishing to embark on Walk and Talk counselling must have an initial introductory session in my office as per all other counselling. This is to assess suitability, health and mobility concerns and complete paperwork and decide on what you want out of your Walking Therapy. All walks are risk assessed and insured. Cost for this is £50.
