Active intervention is a type of therapy which occurs outside of the traditional office setting, often outdoors. This could be at a park, walking along bike trails or fishing at a lake.
Science has shown exercise, including walking, enhances the “Happy” brain chemicals released through endorphins. Sometimes, especially for children & adolescents, it is easier to open up when involved in another activity.
Clients who are good candidates for this technique will be physically fit enough to walk with periodic breaks for the counseling session.
My office location is complete with a lake with walking trail and spots to sit outdoors in good weather. Taking a session outdoors is as easy as walking out the back, no additional travel needed. If getting outdoors to walk, fish, or feed the turtles, interests you, please let me know.
