At FORWARD, you are in control of how you access support.
Located in the beautiful Old Strathcona district of Edmonton, in the historic Ritchie Mill building, our office spaces reflect the vibe of our practice. They are warm, inviting and unique. We love where we work and strive to make our clients as comfortable as possible when they join us in-office.
We offer online and telephone-based services for many clients. This approach enables clients to eliminate the commute and engage in therapy from the private location of their choosing. Choosing to engage in this approach to therapy is an option to Alberta residents from across the province. Speaking with us about this format will help determine if it is right for you!
Many clients choose to see us outdoors and on the move! We call this Physically Active Talk Therapy©.
Physically Active Talk therapy©, or RUN & WALK Therapy, was founded on the understanding that our minds and bodies are inseparable, and that movement is an integral component of mental health and overall wellness. Put simply, physically moving FORWARD together, while mindfully WALKING or RUNNING, working through challenges and developing solutions collaboratively, fosters GROWTH, CHANGE, BALANCE, and ACCOMPLISHMENT. This is Physically Active Talk Therapy©.
Many find that they feel liberated and more comfortable when working with their psychologist outside and on the move.
Physically Active Talk Therapy© is NOT a fitness program. It is NOT a training program, or a coaching program. We do NOT work on becoming better walkers or runners together. We engage in talk therapy on the move.
You do not need to be an athlete to engage in this approach. Physically Active Talk Therapy© is individually paced in a manner that allows for easy conversation. It differs for each individual. Sometimes we run, sometimes we walk, sometimes we sit on a bench and talk. During a single session, we may do all three! Everyone is different and therefore, our Physically Active Talk Therapy©
approach is collaboratively pre-determined and co-created.
