Walk & Talk Therapy:
A change of scenery for a new vantage point.
You are in the office all day surrounded by four walls without a view. The sun is seen on your way to work, but may not be out on your way home. You need some fresh air to uncloud your thoughts and to stretch your legs to get moving.
Walk & Talk Therapy provides you with an experience of walking outside during therapy instead of sitting inside an office for your session.
Many clients find Walk & Talk Therapy to be relaxing and supports their active lifestyle. Walking is not only good for your physical health, but it is also good for your mental health. Research has consistently shown that exercise can significantly impact anxiety and stress while improving overall mood, reducing levels of depression and anxiety, and helping to prevent depressive symptoms.
Being in the beauty of nature can be meditative and grounding. Immersing yourself with life and light can help you feel more relaxed, loosen up feelings and thoughts when you feel stuck, spur deeper ways of thinking for more clarity and insight, and help your session feel more engaging.
