Walk and Talk Therapy, sometimes called Ecotherapy, gets us out of the box which is the room or being in front of the screen into an outdoor environment which can be more grounding, less claustrophobic, less confronting and can offer an expansion of perspective with increased connection to nature.

This can also allow meeting in person as opposed to telehealth. I don’t currently have therapy rooms (January 2024). 

There are extra considerations with Walk and Talk Therapy, such as:

  • Personal safety means doing a risk assessment prior
  • Weather unpredictability could result in last-minute postponements
  • Confidentiality in a shared public space requires extra care
  • Therapist travel radius and cost need to be factored in

My training (Ecotherapy: Walk & Talk Therapy Training) is with Creative Counsellors
