Walk, Think, Do Coaching

It’s work, we just happen to be walking.

Want to escape your screen, think clearly and find focus?  

 

I offer ‘Walk and Think’ Coaching sessions to professionals in the central Bristol area.  

 

These sessions bring all the benefits of indoor coaching with extra well-being advantages from exercise and the outdoors.  

 

As usual, the topic is of your choosing, typically something from professional life you’d like to improve or think differently about.

 

The art of blending work and other aspects of life is another common theme.  Coaching helps bring clarity of thought, generates options and enables focused steps in your chosen direction.

Why walk?

Physical activity and being outdoors have remarkable benefits for our minds.  Walking has been shown to reduce stress, improve resilience, increase creativity and cognitive ability.  Calming environments help restore the brain and can even improve short term memory.

 

In terms of coaching the conversation and style are similar to being in the office or remote sessions.  We will enjoy open spaces but I am not proposing mindfulness, forest bathing or jumping into the freezing harbour.  Pace and terrain of the walk can be agreed and adjusted as we go along.  Any mobility and medical considerations can be discussed confidentially in advance. 

 

How does it work?

Its simple.  Conversations are typically an hour, and can span lunch time.  Meeting places and times are agreed per session.  It may be close to your work, home office or one of Bristol’s green spaces.  More rigorous walks can be held at Ashton Court or on the Downs.  If the weather is dubious we may agree to retreat to a cafe or similarly quiet spot.  

Other locations are possible, because my travel times will vary these sessions can't be booked online yet, if you’d like to take stroll, or find out more, simply get in touch here.
