"Following my sudden unexpected surgery and illness I was totally lost, and possibly heading for a depressive illness due to extreme fatigue and lack of insight into myself and medics alike.  The strategies that you delivered Claire were fundamental in not only recovery physically, but the ability to look forward to a future filled with new opportunities.  A huge thank you." - Alison, former client

Our aim is to empower you to use the therapeutic benefits of the great outdoors and to introduce you to strategies that you can use outside the sessions to build a healthier mindset.

 

What is Walk and Talk Therapy?

 

Walk and Talk Therapy is an alternative to a traditional, inside-based therapy setting. The client (you) and therapist (us) go outside to walk and talk, exploring issues in a natural environment. Walking side by side is a great way to have therapy and conversation feels very natural. You do not have to be super fit to have Walk and Talk therapy. We move at a pace that is right for you.

 

The added bonus is that by having therapy with OutdoorCure, you are spending time in nature which has a positive effect on your wellbeing. Researchers at Kings College London found that being outdoors, seeing trees, hearing bird song, seeing the sky and feeling in contact with nature were associated with higher levels of mental wellbeing (2018). It has also been well documented that direct encounters with the natural outdoor world can aid in healing emotional trauma, reduce stress and lower both heart rate and blood pressure.
