Walking Therapy

Walking therapy is walking outside while conducting a therapy session. Many of the modalities and approaches used in an office setting can be used outside as well. The walking is done in a neighborhood near the office building and we decide jointly how much of the session we spend walking. 

Some of the benefits of walking during therapy are:

  • An increased sense of agency and efficacy
  • Feeling more flow and movement of ideas
  • Opening the field of awareness of possibilities
  • Connectedness to nature
  • Groundedness
  • Enhanced body mindfulness
  • Spaciousness around issues, which dilutes their intensity
  • Right and left hemisphere communication from the bilateral movement of walking, which helps with processing and integration
  • Side by side conversation creating a sense of facing an issue jointly
  • Release of stress
  • Improvement of mood, which can change perception of the topic discussed

If interested please ask Erika about the possibility of walking therapy during your sessions.
