Today’s podcast guest, William Pullen, is a London-based psychotherapist, TEDx speaker and author who has developed a unique treatment method called “Dynamic Running Therapy” (DRT). DRT has been described as a “revolutionary method” and as “a radical new approach to mindfulness”.
According to William, movement combined with talking exploits something deep within our DNA and DRT is based on this concept. DRT helps people work through issues like anxiety, depression, anger management or decision making.
Listen to my chat with William to hear the inspiring story of how he left the dizzying world of alcohol, gambling and other destructive pursuits to one of health, wellbeing and inner peace. He achieved this U turn with a combination of running and psychotherapy and then chose to study psychotherapy himself as he was simultaneously so inspired and healed by it. With a background in philosophy and a deep appreciation of the Buddhist concept of mindfulness, William has a unique perspective on the human mind – for any philosophy buffs, William throws in some references to Descartes and the Cartesian Split.
William has also written a book about DRT, “Run For Your Life: Mindful Running for a Happy Life” (published in the United States as “Running with Mindfulness”) and here is a link to my review of his book where you can purchase it via Amazon: https://amandaswellbeingpodcast.com/run-for-your-life/
