I am carrying out research as part of a Masters in Counselling at York St John University on ‘walk and talk counselling‘ and I am particularly interested in the client’s experience of this.

Walk and talk counselling is becoming more widely used especially due to the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions and research to date is limited and mostly on the counsellor’s experience.

The aim of the study is to help improve understanding of how walk and talk counselling in a natural outdoor environment, affects the client.

I am looking for counsellor volunteers who have experienced walk and talk counselling as clients.
Participation with the research would involve one audio recorded online interview of up to an hour.

If you are interested in helping with this research, or would like more information, please contact me by email at erica.newman@yorksj.ac.uk

Thank you for taking time to read this information.
