If the thought of sitting in a counselling room doesn't appeal to you, walk and talk therapy might be a more relaxed approach to counselling.
Clients sometimes find it easier to start talking about what's troubling them while walking in a park or strolling down a country path. Research has shown that walking in nature can help to reduce anxiety and depression.
Sessions can start from your front door in Buxton or Whaley Bridge, or we can arrange to meet at one of your favourite nature spots in the High Peak. If you'd like to give walk and talk counselling a try but aren't sure where you'd like to meet we'll chose a spot based on what feels most comfortable to you.
Sessions are 60 minutes and during this time we will walk, amble, sit on a bench or a portable seat which I will provide.
Just like life, the weather can be unpredictable. It's important that you dress appropriately outdoor counselling sessions, and have suitable footwear. We will walk at your pace, or if you prefer just sit and enjoy the view. You don't have to be super fit.
You might also want to bring along a flask or tea or a bottle of water.
