Walk and Talk Therapy

an educational journey to certification with IMMA and a roadmap to creating your very own Walk and Talk Therapy Practice 

What is Walk and Talk Therapy?

Perhaps you’re a psychologist, a counsellor or a life coach. You love helping people work through problems and level up in life – it’s fulfilling, important work. You also love spending time in nature – but you’ve been told that therapy belongs indoors.

Because of this, you work long, sedentary hours in an office. To counter it, you get up before dawn to exercise or spend your weekends immersing yourself in nature.

Imagine, then, if your favourite place was your office. If you could move gently all day instead of in stolen moments between appointments and commitments. If your best (furry) friend could come to work with you. If, instead of simply suggesting interventions such as mindfulness practices or exercise, you could get the ball rolling in person.

It’s not wishful thinking – walk and talk therapy offers just that. With a set of business practices that follow careful guidelines, you can take your vital work into the outdoors, using movement, fresh air and the rich textbook of nature to nurture your clients’ progress, while nourishing your own wellbeing.

With the outdoors as your office, you expand everything – from your therapeutic approach to your work-life balance to your earning potential. There are fewer overheads to manage and far greater opportunities for growth. You can truly go your own way.
