⭐ 16 September, 2024 – Walking Therapy – A Solution Focused Approach for Hypnotherapists – Live in Skipton

CPD Event title: Walking Therapy – A Solution Focused Approach for Hypnotherapists – Live in Skipton

Brief Description Of Event: This immersive, live workshop is designed for hypnotherapists and solution-focused therapists interested in integrating walking therapy into their practice. The event will be led by Karen Dunnet, a seasoned practitioner with extensive experience in hypnotherapy and walking therapy.

Learning Objectives: The “Solution Focused Walking Therapy” workshop offers a unique opportunity for solution-focused therapists and hypnotherapists to explore and integrate the benefits of walking therapy into their practice. Walking therapy, a form of outdoor therapy, combines the mental health benefits of physical activity with the therapeutic process, offering a distinctive approach to support clients. Research and evidence underscore the positive impact of walking therapy on mental health, highlighting its potential to reduce depression and anxiety, enhance self-esteem, and foster a deeper connection with nature​​​​.


Walking therapy provides a sense of freedom, promotes personal growth, and facilitates a natural, therapeutic relationship between the client and therapist. It enables the exploration of thoughts and feelings in a less intense setting than the traditional therapy room, leveraging the healing power of nature and movement. This approach not only aids in processing emotions and challenges but also improves physical health, offering a holistic method of care​​.


Furthermore, studies have shown that walking can help manage cravings and addiction, suggesting its potential in addressing a wide range of mental health issues. The act of walking, especially in a mindful manner, can align the mind, body, and heart, fostering a sense of well-being and allowing for deeper therapeutic work​​. The workshop, led by Karen Dunnet, aims to guide practitioners in adapting their practice to include walking therapy, addressing practical considerations such as initial consultations, insurance adjustments, and personal implementation of the technique.

This immersive workshop will not only cover the practicalities and benefits of walking therapy but also delves fully into:

  • the IC
  • mindfulness
  • scaling
  • miracle question
  • keeping safe in walking therapy
  • group walking

Further enriching the therapeutic experience for both practitioners and clients.
