Wind Effect?

Im making a game where the 4th chapter is gonna be based around a wind effect. I tried using velocity, but if i was currently moving the wind effect wouldnt continue moving the player. Then i tried using position, but it made it so if the player touched a wall that is in the direction where the wind was pushing them, they wouldnt be able to move. Can somebody show me how to make this work correctly?

You could reduce the velocity of the player in the direction of the wind to “seem slower because of the wind”.
