Walk and Talk Therapy
Exercise benefits the body and the mind
Movement propels people forward - literally and figuratively
Many clients prefer to take their sessions outdoors. Very similar to traditional psychotherapy, the rhythmic exercise of walking is conducive to self-exploration. Clients at all levels of fitness can benefit from outdoor exercise in the sunshine, fresh air and the healing power of nature.
Numerous scientific studies have shown the positive effects of exercise on the brain.
Walking is literally moving forward, and clients feel they are moving forward in their issues.
It’s not all in their minds. Clients may be able to view a situation with greater clarity, more insight and make connections, due to the biochemical effects of the activity.
Looking forward rather than directly at a therapist can help people open up. Through the rhythm of walking together, a sync happens between client and therapist. At a moderate pace, healing and breakthroughs occur.
