Walk and Talk therapy is a therapeutic approach that takes counseling sessions outdoors to allow for nature and physical movement in supporting overall psychological wellness and development. For individuals who enjoy fresh air, sunlight and/or exercise, Walk and Talk Therapy is beneficial in decreasing anxiety, regulating mood, reducing stress and relieving body tension. With Walk and Talk therapy, clients set the pace, while therapists follow their lead.
Outdoor sessions can take place in a number of settings including parks/green spaces, hiking trails and waterfronts/piers. Therapists use a wide range of strategies including visualization techniques and mindfulness-based practices to support clients on their therapeutic journey. For those who are more comfortable with side-by-side communication or feel overwhelmed and blocked within traditional counseling spaces, Walk and Talk therapy may be right for you.
