What is Walk-Talk Therapy?
Walk-Talk is a mindfulness-based body-oriented therapy that allows clients to relax, release physical tension, breathe deep and receive mind-body insight while processing experiences in a different way. As the name describes, clients talk while walking outdoors rather than sitting or lying down in a therapy office. Walking side by side rather than sitting face to face enables some clients to feel more comfortable when sharing in the therapy process. Walk-Talk requires an initial intake counseling session conducted in office or via online therapy.
How Can Walk-Talk Therapy Help Me?
Walk-Talk therapy offers an opportunity to reduce stress, relieve body tension, improve circulation, breathe deep and clear the body and mind of intrusive, negative and ruminative thoughts and sensations. These sessions can help you decrease anxiety, regulate mood, enjoy more restful sleep and more. Additionally, you can receive the feel-good brain chemical benefits of exercise, mindfulness practice and eco-psychology. In session, you can enhance insight, release trauma, and alter behavior patterns while verbally processing your authentic truth.
What Happens In Session?
We will meet and start to walk, perhaps in the park or along a scenic waterfront. Walking side by side, we’ll discuss what comes to mind for you that day in the context of your overall goals, just as if we were sitting inside an office. At times we might take a few moments to stand in silent reflection, deep breathe or sit in guided visualization. If it makes sense to you, I will guide you through 3-5 gentle body stretches in response to the content of our discussion. By the end, you’ll have gained some understanding, let loose a little and noticed a helpful shift in your level of stress and anxiety.
