What is Walk and Talk Therapy?

Walk and talk therapy, also known simply as walk therapy or walk and talk counseling, is a form of therapy where sessions take place outdoors while the therapist and client walk together. Instead of the traditional office setting, which involves sitting face-to-face indoors, walk and talk therapy involves moving outside in natural surroundings, such as parks, gardens, or urban green spaces.

Features of Walk and Talk Therapy

Physical Activity: The act of walking during therapy sessions provides physical movement, which can be beneficial for both mental and physical health. It can help reduce stress and increase feelings of well-being.

Natural Environment: Being outdoors in nature can have therapeutic effects, such as reducing anxiety and promoting relaxation. The natural environment may also provide metaphors that can be used in therapy.

Informal Atmosphere: Some clients find the informal setting of walk and talk therapy less intimidating than the traditional office setting. This can encourage open communication and a sense of comfort.

Integration of Mind and Body: Walking while talking can help clients connect their thoughts and emotions with physical sensations and movements, promoting a holistic approach to therapy.

Privacy: Therapists often choose quieter outdoor locations to ensure privacy and confidentiality during sessions.

Accessibility: Walk and talk therapy can be more accessible for clients who feel uncomfortable in traditional therapy settings or who simply prefer being outdoors.

Our Approach to Walk and Talk Therapy

With Fort Canning Park just behind our office, it is an ideal location for Walk and Talk Therapy. Walking along the Singapore River towards Marina Bay Sands or towards Robertson Quay is another option. Check in with your therapist at Redwood Psychology if this is a suitable form of therapy for you. Alternatively, our admin team will be able to assign a suitable therapist for you to conduct Walk and Talk Therapy with you.​
