Walk and talk therapy
Walk and Talk, or Eco Therapy, can be a good option for people who want to work face-to-face but would prefer not to be inside.
My practice is located on the edge of both the Cairn local nature reserve and the National Trust owned Torrs Park, with access to the South West Coast Path. I can work with clients outside as we explore these areas of natural beauty, which can be a peaceful and soothing alternative to working inside or online.
As well as the physical health benefits of walking, there are many ways in which walking and talking can support the therapeutic process. Walking helps calm the mind and reduce the effects of stress. The rhythm of walking helps us enter a light meditative state, which then regulates breathing, lowers stress hormones, and can bring a sense of peace and calm. The actual act of putting one foot in front of the other keeps our bodies and minds in conversation with each other.
This way of working can also be especially effective with children and young people, who may find it easier to open up if they are outside. If you think this approach might work for you or your child, we can arrange for a free 30-minute consultation walk to try out this way of working.
