Motivated by a desire to help people heal and work through their own trauma, Talia Jacqueline began studying psychology in college. She eventually veered off the traditional path in the pursuit of starting a trauma therapy coaching practice in her early 20’s.
Her training began in Vancouver, BC where she studied and practiced trauma therapy techniques with a company that had clients including Gabor Mate, a renowned physician and psychiatrist in healing trauma and addiction.
While building her own trauma therapy coaching practice as a young professional in New York City, Talia struggled to find messaging that would resonate with prospective clients. She became interested in the psychology of successful communicators and soon learned the skills to establish her professional identity, convey her worth and build her brand; as a result, her trauma therapy client roster grew tenfold.
But it was what happened next that changed the course of her career.
Through working with Talia, several of her trauma therapy clients were able to channel their negative emotional history into positive emotional growth and became interested in starting their own businesses.
And that’s how Visceral was born: At the convergence of psychology, communication and business.
Talia dived deep into the intimate connection between psychology and communication, and she has spent nearly a decade cementing those bonds. Working with business leaders, executives and their sales teams for a cumulative 15,000 hours, Talia has helped companies generate the recognition, traction, and growth that they deserve.
Utilizing Talia’s unique training, 1:1 executive consulting and Visceral Communications skills, Talia’s corporate clients experience 8-12% growth in revenue year after year on average. Some have even closed deals on SharkTank.
