You want to get past what you’re struggling with now, but don’t know how to get there.

There IS a way out of the pain and sorrow.

Are you ready for change that is REAL?


You’ve been scared so bad in life that you’ve become stuck in the same place for a very long time.

Overwhelmed with too many emotions you couldn’t control?

Not knowing what to do to stop it?

Long ago, I was there too.  I know how frightening it can be.

Here’s a little secret I learned since then, that’s come through my own work and over 20 years of clinical practice.

It’s a secret so obvious it’s actually one of those open secrets:  This feeling of overwhelm is very human.

It’s human because it’s the body’s natural response to a traumatizing event.

In our society, trauma is as ordinary as dandelions growing on a patch of grass.  This makes it so important to understand what trauma is and how to deal with its effects.

Doing so will surely change the quality of your life.

One definition of trauma is when we know on the inside we’ve been harmed by another, or we’ve been harmed by the consequences a catastrophic natural event.

The consequences that follow a traumatic event are many.   Things like overwhelming stress, nightmares, intrusive thoughts, difficulty concentrating.  We can feel sad and anxious much of the time, so angry too, and may or may not even realize it, because it’s simply become a new way of being.  And our mind can be thick with confusion.

With friends and family around who love you, it can make the symptoms of trauma a little easier to bare.  If you’re going it alone, well, kudos to you because it’s particularly trying to live with these symptoms on your own.

Either way, my hunch is you’ve got what it takes to get past it all.  I mean, you’ve got the strength.  You’ve come this far.  This makes you wonderfully amazing!

But what happens now?  What about the sadness, the anger, the confusion still alive inside?

How will you find your way out of your pain?

In the words of the popular screen actress, Jennifer Aniston:  “Go to therapy.”

Aniston herself has used therapy to learn to express her anger in a healthy way.  She says, “Clean up all of the toxins and the noise.  Understand who you are.  Educate yourself on the self.  You can undo a lot of things . . ..”

Wiser words have never been spoken:  “You can undo a lot of things”.

So very true.

Here at Nishka Therapy, I help women to undo the things that have been keeping them tethered to their pain and sorrow.

I do it with talk therapy, which includes the body in the healing process.

And dare I say I’ve been on the leading edge of doing it with a therapeutic style of Yoga (add link from therapeutic style of Yoga to Yoga for the Wounded Body sales page) too (even before it ever became a popular form of treatment).

I’ve found both to be powerful and effective ways of helping women to undo what needs to be undone, learn about who they really are, and grow into the experience of contentment.  After all, while the words ‘trauma survivor’ can describe our lived experience, we’re also so much more.

Whether your desire is to say good-bye to the pain forever and step out onto the healing path for the very first time, or you’re already on the path, you’ve tried different approaches and you’ve come to a plateau you just can’t get past, there’s something I want you to know:  there is a way through.

The trouble is, there are so many paths to choose from.  It can be hard to know which one is the right one for me.

There are times in life when we need the support of a compassionate other who will understand our pain and show us the way, because we know in our heart we just can’t do it alone.  There’s no shame in this.

Has this time arrived for you?

I’ve worked with thousands of women from many walks of life.  I’m always humbled when I hear the words, “Thank-you.” from a grateful client.

If you know you’re ready to grow past the pain and feel in your heart you can’t do it alone, here’s how I can help with something I like to describe  in this way:

Remember the REAL you:  Live free of emotional turmoil and             find your way home to peace.

You’ll receive:

            * 60 minute confidential sessions by Zoom or phone,

            * 2 private e-mails with me between sessions, to support the time we spend together,

            * Supplementary written or audio material tailored to your needs sent directly to your inbox, when needed.

We’ll also develop your personalized Peace Map.  The Peace Map will help you to clarify more fully what your suffering has been about, what has helped you to get this far in life, where you want your life to go, what’s holding you back from getting there, and finally, what type of help would best support your journey into the flow of contentment at this time.

By the end of our time together, you can expect to have dealt with those troubling issues that have been in the way of knowing the REAL you, and feeling a greater sense of peace with yourself.

This service is offered on a pay as you go basis, at $150. CDN per session, payable in full prior to each appointment.

And unlike other online agreements, there’s no contract to sign, not now and not ever.

If, after creating your Peace Map we decide to go ahead and work together, the Peace Map will be yours to keep, with my compliments.

If, for some reason we decide not go ahead and work together, you’ll be refunded the first session’s fee of $150 CDN, minus $79 CDN for the Peace Map.

My work is fully backed by the Peace Lovers Guarantee:  If you’re not satisfied with the services you receive, simply get in touch.  Your money will be promptly refunded.*

Now’s the perfect time to end the struggle, break free of the sorrow and finally find your way home to peace.

Know that help is here to reach back to you, as soon as you’re ready to reach out to it.

Best wishes on your healing journey.  May you find your way home to peace.

PS  There’s only one way out of the pain and sorrow.  It’s down a well worn path called Hope Avenue.  Take this path, keep going, and don’t stop until you reach your final destination.  To get there, turn right here. (link to Psychotherapy in the shop)
