This dissertation is an heuristic enquiry into the relationship between exercise and psychotherapy. My own experiences of exercise are captured through qualitative enquiry by way of internal reflection, immersing myself into exercise itself, and utilising journal writing, meditation, and allowing illumination through the heuristic process. I examine, in my current and historical relationship to exercise, how I think and feel about exercise as a practicing psychotherapist. Relevant literature is explored throughout the dissertation to help explicate ideas and themes that relate to exercise and psychotherapy. This dissertation provides practitioners an introductory base to how they may relate and work with clients who are interested in exercise, or if they feel exercise could be a useful addition to therapy.
