Walking Therapy

Facilitated therapy walks allow us to connect with nature as we work together.  A growing body of research highlights the positive benefits of spending time in nature.  Our lifestyle can keep us seated indoors for long periods and this can exacerbate stress.  Bringing therapy outdoors and incorporating gentle movement in sessions enables us to harness the combined power of our body and mind. 

One-on-one therapeutic walks are delivered in a range of locations (local parks, gardens, beaches, or forests).

Moving as we conduct our sessions together allows us to:

  • Activate the body’s natural mood enhancing endorphins through gentle physical movement
  • Capitalise on the benefits of nature and physical movement to regulate your response to difficult emotions, soothe your nervous system, and reduce the negative impact of stress on your body
  • Tune into cues in your body and draw on your internal resources
  • Create mindful moments to reconnect your body, mind and world around you
