Hi! I'm Shonna

Shonna-Gupta-Bio-Picture_edited.jpg

I support people heal from anxiety and complex chronic health conditions.

I am a passionate advocate of the Gupta Brain Retraining Program, after using it to completely  reclaim my health and life in 2014. Prior to my recovery I was diagnosed with labels such as ME/CFS, POTS, MCS, mold sensitivity, Lyme, food sensitivities and others. I spent many years searching for solutions and implementing countless regimens, prior to the success with the Gupta Program.

I was inspired to take the comprehensive Gupta Coach Certification Program many years ago, to have the knowledge and experience to support others in their recovery. I have a health science background and graduated from the University of Alberta in 1993. I'm a Heart Math Trainer and Coach, a Neurolinguistic Programming coach and I am in the 3 year Somatic Experience Practitioner Training with Dr. Peter Levine. I have my EFIT level one certification with Dr. Sue Johnson, and the foundations in Women Centered Coaching with Dr. Claire Zammit.

I also draw inspiration from the work of Dr. Rick Hanson who is the creator of Hardwiring Happiness, Dr. Carolyn Leaf who is a Christian neuroscientist, and Dr. Jules Shore who specializes in interpersonal neurobiology, and the neurobiology of safety and compassion.

 

 Since 2021, I have become specialized in supporting people recovering from Long Covid. I was privileged to be the main coach that supported participants in the first published Long Covid study on the effectiveness of the Gupta Program.

In my own healing journey, having a compassionate and encouraging coach who had experienced a similar journey made all the difference in my recovery. Now I am honored to be a supportive mentor in the journey of transformation for others. I work to create a safe and accepting environment to help cultivate growth and support healing. In this process, people can discover authentic self-worth and happiness.

You can find me in the Canadian Rockies, and I love participating in several mountain sports and activities with my family and friends. I volunteer and have been trained with the Canadian police (RCMP) as a Victim Service Advocate for people in my community experiencing crisis. I also volunteer raising, and training guide/service dog puppies.

I meet with clients from all over the world by Zoom or phone. If you would like to book an Initial Consultation or join one of my inspiring and transformational Workshops, please visit the “Services” option in the menu above. If you would like to have the session by phone, or have the camera off on Zoom, please email me with this request, after you book online, at contact@shonnastokowski.com. Sending you lots of love and encouragement!

Group Coaching

Gupta group coaching and courses are an excellent way to get the information and inspiration to propel you forward. Many people prefer group coaching to individual coaching. Why? Because they get to learn from other people's questions, ask clarifying questions themselves and feel connected and supported. It is also much more economical than individual coaching. 

Although we all come from different backgrounds and have unique lives, you will also see the similarities that many of us have as we are on the journey to wellness. 

All the information that I share is what I share in the individual coaching. I give real examples of how others have used the program to support their healing journey and I also share more details about mine. 

You are welcome to keep your video on or off in the Zoom sessions. Whatever you are comfortable with is most important. 

One-on-one
Individual coaching

At this time I have very few appointments left for Individual coaching sessions, for the next few months. I do give priority to people who have taking my group sessions, as they have already been given the important information that I share in all Individual sessions. Sometimes, after completing the group sessions, people do have specific circumstances that they request Individual coaching for.
