Mountain Path

Walk and Talk
Session

Sometimes talking about life on a trail is just a little bit easier. Experience nature-based therapy year-long, while we explore a local trail in Golden, BC.  Based on roughly 5 years of nature based work, this was a favourite for kids, youth, and adults in Ontario who prefered to be outside, and we're excited to offer it in BC. 

All sessions can include CBT, ACT, Mindfulness and Narrative Therapy based approaches, as well as biofeedback if interested.

Available only in Golden, BC

Guides with Heart
Project

In collaboration with outdoor professionals in Ontario and BC, we are developing a program to compliment the expertise, experience and training of guiding professionals to further develop their 'soft skills'. 

As a guide, you already have the skills and expertise to work with a variety of people in often complex and challenging environments. We hope to provide conversation, expertise and further resources to  help guides understand themselves and their clients even better. 

Although still in development, the Guides with Heart Project will explore self-care, mental health, better understanding client reactions and responses, working with complex clients, communication strategies, stress management, meaning and purpose in the work, and other concrete tools and resources to help you continue to grow in your abilities to create meaningful and life-changing moments for your clients.

Phone Camera

Phone/Video

Session

We've been surprised how effective phone and video based sessions can be. So much so that we've chosen to expand our 'nature and adventure roots' so that we can keep connecting with people who either prefer this way of meeting, or don't live geographically close.

 

Phone or video based sessions are available for kids, youth and adults. Sessions can look like traditional talk therapy, or we get pretty creative with kids and youth through art, music and challenging activities (picture a mix between double-dare, a scavenger hunt and floor is lava while talking about feelings).

Partnering with Professionals

We love chatting with other outdoor and adventure professionals in dreaming about how we may combine their activities, business, and expertise with Nature and Adventure Based Therapies. 

We're always dreaming of new ideas... from surf camps for cancer survivors, youth with ADHD and a backcountry skiing weekend, to a whitewater rafting afternoon for new-Canadians. We'd love to hear how you would like to connect your profession with helping others.

We've connected with outdoor and adventure businesses in Canada, the USA and Mexico in creating meaningful and therapeutic moments for others.

Send us a message and let's connect!

Kid Climbing Wall

Rock Climbing: Indoors Individual Session

We’re really excited to bring our most popular support from out east to Golden, BC and to partner with the amazing folks at Dirtbag Climbing Corp!

 

Sessions for individuals combine traditional counselling  with rock climbing to challenge yourself physically and mentally. Sessions with Brandon (MSW social worker and psychotherapist registered with the BCCSW and the OCSWSSW) are often covered under extended health benefits that include social work, psychotherapy or counselling.

 

Session times are available both when the climbing gym is closed for a more private experience, or during less busy times. All sessions include a secluded sitting space to talk, debrief and connect while not combining therapeutic based theories up on the wall.  No experience needed.

Available only in Golden, BC

140$/50m   190$/90m
