What is Fitness Therapy? 


Walking, Boxing, lifting weights and Talking Therapy

Walk + Talk Therapy is about being in nature. The client and the therapist are outside walking during therapy (weather permitting. Research shows that exercise can significantly decrease anxiety and depression while improving overall mood.  Walk + Talk Therapy encourages clients to be more physically active to promote both mental and physical health.   Walk + Talk Therapy also allows clients to be in the open air and at one with nature, after being in the health and fitness industry for over 35 years and now a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist. I have integrated walking counselling and psychotherapy sessions to deepen and expand the therapeutic experience.

Fitness Therapy

Fitness Therapy combines exercise with psychotherapy. Individual Fitness Therapy sessions go above and beyond what you can receive from a traditional trainer—they will enable you to become motivated, goal-oriented, and empowered while simultaneously strengthening your body. Through fitness therapy, you will address the behaviour patterns that are no longer beneficial for you and learn a new way to integrate health and fitness into your life.
