Practice description

The focus of this profile is to introduce how I practice as a Walk & Talk therapist. Please visit my main profile if you are not seeking this approach to counselling.

Walk and Talk Therapy, also known as eco therapy is a form of counselling/psychotherapy where confidential sessions take place outside with you the client and myself walking side by side. It is also referred to as Outdoor Therapy. The pace is set by you and I match your pace. If you wish to pause or sit you are free to do so.

Objective of Walk and Talk is for us to have a counselling session. However, walking in a natural environment provides an additional therapeutic context. I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework and same rules of confidentiality as in face to face counselling sessions. 

Walk and Talk Benefits include advantages to physical health by regular walks outside, along with psychological benefits of talking to a trained therapist. It has been shown to lower the levels of anxiety, stress and depression in addition to enhancing a sense of wellbeing.

Bereaved clients find being outside in the change of seasons helpful while working through the stages of grief following the loss of a loved one. Walking relieves the tension and stimulates blood flow to the brain improving problem solving and creative thinking. 

Walk and Talk also has advantages for parents/carers with young children and prams. Providing flexibility for those who do not have childcare whilst seeking therapy.

My first session

We can set a time and place for the first session over the phone as I offer a free 20 min initial consultation. Please feel free to contact me via email or phone.

The first session is to set the boundaries and discuss how we can work together, as everyone has different reasons for therapy and what they wish to achieve from it.

This session is also a time for you to ask me any questions in relation to how I work, the therapeutic model I use, and to finalise payment details.

Practice description

As an integrative therapist I will draw on different theories and skills and apply what is best suited to you and your needs. Therapy is a bit like a structured conversation where you can speak freely about your life without judgement. I am open and honest in relation to all aspects of my work with you. I foster a confidential, non-judgemental and empathetic space, supporting you when these issues you are experiencing. It is my wish that our sessions together can help you to understand yourself better and provide greater insight/awareness of your presenting issues or life experience.

Phone, online and walk and talk sessions are once a week, 50 minutes in duration, the same as face to face sessions. A day and time will be agreed prior to each session.

My integrative training allows me to be flexible and adaptable with my approach as I feel that therapy is not a one size fits all endeavour. I feel that gaining insight into our inner worlds and relationships with others allows us to move forward with more self-compassion and understanding. I integrate different ways of working such as art therapy. I also integrate Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques and mindfulness.
