Speaking on Business: Trailtalk
A goal of Allison’s with Trailtalk is to reach a demographic of active, functional people who may just need emotional tune ups.
This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.
One winter Allison Page, a nurse and mental health therapist, was out snowshoeing when she had a realization. This environment could be exactly what she needed to help one of her clients. And she thought, why not create her own outdoor therapy environment which is a concept she had heard of before? This was the beginning of her Park City business, Trailtalk, which launched in 2010.
The motto at Trailtalk is “taking therapy off the couch and onto the trail.” The idea here is “walking and talking” where therapy sessions are held while hitting the trail instead of in an office setting. The approach works because clients get clarity while they’re out and moving and they’re also experiencing a release of endorphins, both which help with mental precision and make sessions more effective.
A goal for Allison’s with Trailtalk is to reach a demographic of active, functional people who may just need emotional tune ups. Many clients don’t have a major reason to seek therapy but are looking for someone to talk things through with or to handle a specific problem. Therapists can meet clients at almost any trailhead and conduct the session as they walk.
Trailtalk has been such a success, Allison is in the process of creating affiliate offices, with the first opening in Provo. Find more online at trailtalkpc.com.
