Talk it out
“To me, being adventurous means forging a new path for myself, one I haven’t walked before. And the more unknown, overgrown and challenging the path, the bigger the adventure, both literally and metaphorically”
Kayla Greenville is a clarity coach who offers coaching, workshops and Walk n Talks. Walk n Talks are a unique form of coaching which take place while walking in nature, either in person or via Skype. “The theory behind clarity coaching is that acceptance and flow is our natural state and it is our own blocks that keep us from that state,” says Kayla. “The aim of a Walk n Talk is to identify those blocks and come up with goals and actions to clear them.” Features editor Fiona Ralph went for a Walk n Talk with Kayla to find out why you should give it a go. 1
Kayla will inspire you to take action and, in just a few sessions, will help you figure out what is blocking you and make a plan to find more joy, movement or motivation – or whatever it is you’re craving – in your life. Think of it as an adventure which could clear the way to more adventures.
Walk n Talks are an accountable way of getting moving. Exercising and being in nature will help to energise you and move you from an emotional state of mind to a more rational state. “This helps to keep sessions on track and is particularly effective when it comes to setting clear, impactful actions,” says Kayla.
This form of coaching provides an actionable, practical approach to solving a problem – you might find this a more accessible route than other therapies. Walking, as opposed to sitting face to face, can also help ease nervousness. “Because of this, I’ve found that clients feel more comfortable diving straight in, which means we can quickly get into meaningful work together.”
Kayla is an innate healer whose natural inclination is to offer solutions and a listening ear. “Coupling coaching with nature creates a really holistic experience for people,” she says. “In one hour a client may feel benefits physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.”
Walk n Talks work for anyone who needs help in one or more areas of their lives (in other words, all of us). Kayla will help you to find the ‘why’ behind a goal you may have. “That emotional connection to a goal is the only way to create sustainable change.”
