Person-centred psychotherapist, specialising in “Walk & Talk Therapy”
Annie Callingham is a person-centred psychotherapist, specialising in “Walk & Talk Therapy”.
She has worked in a variety of settings, predominantly in the corporate world in a learning and development capacity, within the retail and logistics sector. She has also worked as a Crisis Help Line volunteer for The Richmond Fellowship and as a counsellor for Quetzal.
Movement of the body, and a shift in environment, can help us to think differently about our lives. Other associated benefits for working outside to support mental health include physical exercise, help with feelings of being “stuck”, anxiety or anger; plus the physical space and headspace that being outside provides, is generally mood-enhancing
Walk & Talk therapy can be especially helpful for people who don’t have the opportunity to get out into nature very often, and those who feel as if they thrive better when they do. It’s also good for those who may feel intimidated by eye-contact or claustrophobic in the environment of a one-on-one session in a room.
Walking together side by side also means that the often hugely valuable silences in therapy are much easier to bear for many people, and client led in terms of pace and route.
Annie is able to reduce physical barriers that can deter some clients accessing therapy such as: those experiencing anxiety or low self-confidence, along with offering ADHD and autistic clients the environment that they know works for them.
She believes that we all have a tendency to put others first, but in doing so, we can sometimes neglect our relationship with ourselves. Counselling can show you a kinder, gentler way to treat the most important person in your life, you.
