NEW! Stay Sane Campaign: Walking Therapy
‘Research shows that getting outside in nature has many mental health benefits as well. Walking has been proven effective in reducing anxiety and depression, and there is further evidence that walking in nature improves those results even further. That's because different parts of our brain activate in nature.’ 31 Oct 2018
Mental Health Benefits of Getting Outside | UNC Health Talk
We are launching our new Walking Therapy Service as part of our Stay Safe Campaign.
Are you stuck alone at home feeling isolated and anxious?
Do you need some space and time outside amongst beautiful views to clear you mind and rejuvinate your soul?
Do you need to talk to someone outside of your family/friendship circle who can offer gentle and supportive company to get things clearer in your mind?
Is Lockdown with your family feeling overwhelming and you yearn for some reprieve?
Please join us in the launch of our Walking and Talking Therapy as part of the Stay Sane Campaign here on the beautiful Hunstanton coastline. Enjoy gentle exercise and beautiful views and the Company of one of our fully qualified and experienced Therapists here at Harley St. Psychotherapy.
We will meet at an agreed point and walk for an hour along the beaches, dunes and gardens of Hunstanton. Nature and exercise go hand in hand with therapy covering all issues concerning your mental health. We will work on your anxiety, depression, stress, low self-esteem, communication and relationships and all aspects which may have arisen due to the current Corona Virus Pandemic. We will be observing all the rules of social distancing so that we can stay safe whilst staying sane during this period and beyond.
An initial discussion will establish whether you prefer a beach walk or a parkland walk and the pace and rest stops will be planned.
Group Walking Therapy
We will be starting Therapeutic Walking Groups of 6.
These walks will be structured and finish with a group discussion. It will be an opportunity for you to meet like minded people who are also struggling in some way. Group Walking reduces the cost of therapy and our initial fee per walk will be £20 per person. We will walk for 1 hour 15-30 minutes at a leisurely pace taking lots of rest and reflection stops. To register your interest please email [email protected]
For an initial discussion and plan, please contact us and we can get your therapy started and give you some tools to cope with the current Lockdown and beyond.

Harley St Psychotherapy provides psychotherapy and counselling in Oxford Circus, Central London; Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in Norfolk. The sessions take place in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment, working from lovely Harley St offices in Central London within walking distance from Oxford Circus Tube. Busy people also find that our Skype sessions make therapy accessible when working hours do not permit a face to face meeting. We also run HSP from Kings Lynn and North Norfolk. Please see separate tab for details.
We work with both individuals and couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully. Sometimes issues, difficulties and past hurts can prevent us from feeling contented, but we have seen time and time again clients who turn their lives around despite major setbacks, with the help of therapy. It's never too late.

I work with young people, people who are retired, businessmen and women. Having worked within the media industry for 10 years, I am aware of the pressures this environment can present.
