“A Healing Journey…”

Freedom Release Counselling Centre now offering a new modern approach to counselling – Walk & Talk Therapy.

Your healing begins outdoors where together we focus on your emotional, physical and spiritual health.

Together, we will take the necessary steps to move forward on your goals.

 Walk & Talk Therapy – What it is?

  • The therapist and client walk together during sessions, while addressing the issues that led to an interest in therapy.
  • It encourages a patient to be more physically active for mental and physical reasons
  • It helps a patient get “unstuck” when confronting difficult issues
  • It spurs creative, deeper ways of thinking often released by mood-improving physical activity

Why it’s helpful:

  • Walk & Talk Therapy gets clients moving- literally and figuratively.
  • It’s conducted outdoors, which can be very grounding and relaxing.
  • Clients are allowed to set their own place, which can be empowering physically and emotionally.
  • Research studies show that physical activity can improve the mental and physical health of clients.  Physical activity has also been shown to reduce levels of depression and anxiety and can help to prevent depressive symptoms.
  • Physical activity can also reduce levels of depression and anxiety.
