Why Walking Counselling?
Ecotherapy is an emerging field that combines counselling with being outdoors, and has been shown to benefit mental health. Walking outdoors with a qualified counsellor can help you to relax and access more of your whole-brain creative insights. Walking and breathing deeply can reduce the anxiety or stress that sometimes accompanies counselling sessions in a more formal setting. Walking also releases endorphins that can boost your mood and give you a better baseline from which to tackle your issues. Walking with a counsellor in a beautiful natural setting is geared to your fitness level.
