You CAN Recover Your Confidence After A Toxic Relationship

Hi! I’m Stacey Sanderson, a heart-centred Certified Holistic Life Coach and Registered Psychotherapist. I specialize in helping people heal and release unhealthy patterns that come from narcissistic relational abuse. My work is collaborative and intuitively guided, often assisting empaths and highly sensitive people in reigniting their power so they can fulfill their true potential.

Have I Lost Myself Along The Way?

(The real you IS inside.)

Your authentic self is a wellspring of joy, creativity, and strength. But along the way, a different self has emerged to make everyone else happy and protect yourself in the process. This is your conditioned self. And despite the hoops it has you jumping through life – deep down, you’re confident something isn’t right. That nagging feeling that you need help healing from the toxic relationship(s) you’ve been in . . . Just. Won’t. Go. Away.

But every time you try to understand the anxiety, sadness and guilt . . . it’s unproductive.

Dense websites and gimmicky content sucks you in, offering a glimmer of healing hope, only to disappoint. You deserve better.

Let's take a step back.

What is narcissism?

When someone is self-absorbed and feels entitled while lacking empathy for others.

What is an empath?

Someone who has the ability to put themselves in another person’s shoes to better understand what they are feeling.

What is high-functioning anxiety?

When a person can seem accomplished on the outside and get through daily life just fine, yet internally they are struggling with anxious thoughts.

People who have experienced relational abuse can often identify with at least one of the above.

Start your journey toward toxic relationship recovery by taking this quick quiz.

It IS possible to start Finding Your Way in just five steps!

If you're ready to start to do some work on yourself, but want to work at your own pace, please check out ‘Finding Your Way’. This is a tried and true mini- course based on my 5 Day Workshop of the same name. This is where many people just like yourself have taken the first steps toward their recovery. Here you will start to gain some insight about the reasons why you want to change unhealthy patterns, learn good boundaries and live an empowered life.

Activate your healing journey through this impactful mini-course.

For five days you’ll commit to YOURSELF and make beautiful, life-altering strides forward.

Experience the five steps of...

Finding Your Way

Day 1: Determine what is driving your why and decide what you’d like to learn this week.

Day 2: Discover the difference between your conditional and authentic self and why the distinction is important.

Day 3: Uncover how relationships influence stress and illness and what you can do to ease both.

Day 4: Reveal what makes you, well . . . you through self-inquiry and self-compassion.

Day 5: Unpeel the layers to figure out your unique values and how to stay grounded (and live steadfast with what’s important to you!).

Each day includes video content and supporting exercises to empower, educate, and guide you through the steps.

Are You Ready To Finally Have Aligned And Reciprocal Relationships With Yourself And Others?

My guess is that you’re tired of feeling deeply isolated. You sense it’s safer that way, but it’s equally suffocating. I understand.

You know it’s time to *breakaway* from the pain—not just temporarily push it to the side—but actually do the work to HEAL. But it’s hard to imagine being brave enough to turn the guilt and disempowerment into confidence.

Let me be VERY clear . . .


However, in order to get to the joyful place of believing in yourself, you must first invest in yourself. And I'm not just speaking of the monetary investment. Your willingness to invest your time, your energy, and your presence is equally as important.

If you’re looking for permission, I’m giving it to you right now. Making an investment in YOU is the second empowering step you can take today (the first was landing on this website)!

Trust in the guidance of an experienced holistic psychotherapist and life coach to help you find the right path.

A Different Way Of Understanding Narcissism

For the last 20 years I’ve sought to better understand narcissism from the point of view of trauma, attachment and energy. My experience running a small private psychotherapy practice and leading the Inquire Within relationship recovery community in Canada has been eye-opening.

It’s driven me to create a holistic and deep approach to my work with clients. This includes integrating trauma and somatic modalities with meditation, mindfulness and expressive arts. When I can incorporate nature, wellness and exchanges with my clients that leave them one step closer to healing I feel in my spiritual, energetic zone.

There is healing in connection and community. My own personal recovery from narcissistic family members and work systems came full circle when I stepped into my power and full potential. . . and I know you can do the same!

“Stacey is amazing at what she does! She has helped me find strength in the most trying time of my life. With her help I’ve started to regain ME again. If you are struggling this is a great resource to help you gain clarity and confidence and be your best self.”

My experience working with Stacey has been life changing. Stacey is so kind, insightful and knowledgeable. I instantly felt a connection with her the very first time we met. She has gently supported and guided me on my journey. I appreciate her never ending patience and authenticity. We have laughed, cried and dug deep together. Stacey has taught me so much and continues to inspire me after each session we have together. She is a natural leader and healer.
