I grew up in a forest, and I was surrounded by nature most of my life. Nature is an integral part of who I am, and I always believed that it can help us to connect with ourselves on a deep level and free us from the every-day anxiety we experience in this busy world.
When I first started working in the mental health field, I had profound experiences with nature. I noticed that I had done my best work with my clients whilst walking to the park or speaking to them in a garden. People seemed to change for those brief moments, I felt I was able to reach them, connect on a much deeper level. Most of these people suffered from severe mental health issues, and I was stunned by how much they were able to open up in these settings. This is when my interest started in Walk & Talk therapy.
Mindfulness is an integral part of my practice, and during Walk & Talk I aim to help you to feel grounded, safe and connected to yourself and nature. I believe that the body, mind and soul are interconnected, and by working with your body (walking), connecting with nature (soul), you will be able to work through your difficulties in a much more integrated way. It is also a great way to get out the four walls and do something differently.
I am based in South West London and I conduct my sessions in Battersea Park or Holland Park. I am open to discuss other locations if you have a preference. Bad weather doesn’t hold me back so you are welcome to get in touch during winter too.
