Walk and Talk Therapy

Walk and Talk Therapy

Walk-Talk is a mindfulness-based body oriented therapy that can make it easier for clients to relax, stop ruminating, release physical tension, breathe deep and receive mind-body insight while processing experiences in a different way. As the name describes, clients talk with me 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. Three key reasons for combining exercise and therapy:

  • It encourages a patient to be more physically active for mental and physical reasons.
  • It helps a patient get “unstuck” when confronting difficult issues.
  • It spurs creative, deeper ways of thinking often released by mood-improving physical activity.
  • “Some patients may become anxious when confronting something difficult in a traditional seated, face-to-face interaction,” she says. “Walking in parallel with visual distractions may allow for easier engagement.”
