You are not alone. There is scientific evidence that shows being outside and getting fresh air can help relieve stress; in return this can help you to think more clearly.
Why not combine physical exercise with mental health? Some people enjoy the experience of movement while talking or feel more comfortable talking side-by-side, rather than sitting face-to-face in an office. Walk and Talk therapy " may be a great option for people who exhibit a lot of excess energy during sessions or for those who feel uneasy with maintaining direct eye contact and sitting still. Some therapists have noted that physical movement encourages psychological movement, and can even accelerate client breakthroughs."(L.Diethelm,2020)
Walk-and-talk is a form of psychotherapy or consultation while walking outdoors in public places. I offer walk-and-talk sessions as an optional treatment modality. Walking sessions typically take place in North, South, South West Charlotte. The location and date is discussed with the client and not advertised for confidentiality purposes.
If you’re interested, we’ll decide beforehand if it’s clinically appropriate for your situation. Walk-and-talk sessions can be used intermittently or regularly, and may be discontinued at any time. Check out an example of the the consent form for this service that further explains how confidentiality is handled.
