Many studies have shown the benefit of exercise and nature for mental health. I offer walk and talk therapy as an option in my practice, which takes place at an agreed upon trail or park.
By walking outside during our sessions, we can incorporate nature and movement directly into therapy. This can be helpful for those who want to be physically active and who find a natural environment supportive for the therapeutic process.
While physical activity and being outdoors has many health benefits, walk and talk therapy is not always appropriate. Sometimes people feel more comfortable meeting in a completely private setting, or find that sitting helps them focus inwardly more than walking. Deep emotional work is sometimes better supported by being indoors. We can assess together what would be best for you at any given time.
If you have any questions about walk and talk therapy, or want to explore it further, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.
