Benefits

Walk and Talk Therapy has become increasingly popular worldwide and it is evident that it has many benefits.

  • Walking in the natural environment has been found to reduce stress and anxiety and improve mood.
  • Exposure to natural light can help regulate sleeping patterns.
  • Walking reduces blood pressure and your counselling sessions can inspire you to make other physical health improvements.
  • You set the pace and while our main focus is the therapeutic discussion, I will keep pace beside you.
  • You choose where the session takes place.

What should I wear and what about the weather ?

Wear what you are comfortable in and good walking shoes. We can adjust your appointment to the time of day that is best for you and take the weather into consideration. However, if you like to walk in the rain we can always take an umbrella! Jumping in a puddle or two can be very therapeutic! 

How many sessions will it take?

Change takes time, but the answer to this depends on your commitment to applying the skills that you learn to your life and the complexity of the issues you are dealing with. Again be assured that sharing your story can hep bring about that change!

What does it cost?

Sessions are currently $120 per hour and payment is due at time of session. Group sessions are $40 per session.  Contact me to find out more.

What will the first sessions be like?

It's not uncommon to be nervous about trying something new. Be assured that we can work through this and change can happen if you are willing to put some effort in. 

When you call Walk Together Counselling I will answer any questions you may have and give you further details about how it all works.

In the first session we will have to do a little paperwork and start to unpack your story as well as talk about your goals for therapy.

What about confidentiality?

All sessions are conducted professionally and your privacy is taken seriously. We will discuss how to best to manage a chance meeting with someone before your first session.
