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.”
