Offer a NEW way to take charge of stress
improve health and wellbeing.
Stress - You see it every day in your work supporting others and know it is the underlying cause for so many issues, including chronic illness, pain and anxiety. You witness those who despite well-applied treatment plans, therapies and support continue the patterns of negative behaviours, thoughts and feelings that cause them to remain stuck and falling short of the potential you see in them.
Would you like to try a new approach to help the people you support to improve their response to stress and optimize their health and well-being?
Address Your Stress is a strength-based, simplified approach to educate for stress relief and provide motivation for positive change.
Imagine if the people you worked with were calm, focused, more creative, cooperative and open-minded? How much more could you help them reach their true potential and the team's collective goals?
"When we are traumatized, disillusioned, or grief-stricken we lose a part of ourselves. How can we ever get it back? Many of us need a guide and a facilitator to help with this critical process of recovery. Since the path to recovery is different for everyone, the guide must have a wide array of tools and skills to offer; tools that can address our wounds, and the defences we create to protect those wounds. The guide must be able to work effectively with body, mind, soul, and the unconscious, since all are deeply affected. Dr. Amanda is such a guide. Her compassion and wide-ranging experience enable her to accompany people on a journey of growth and change. She is more than a doctor, she is an expert at teaching and sharing practices that can open the way to healing and the return to wholeness."

"One of the most common, unrecognized, challenges of living with a chronic health condition is the sense of feeling alone. Along with that feeling, often your doctor doesn't really understand and can't help you enough. So you're left to figure it out by yourself.
Dr. Amanda Ferris has the rare, lovely qualities of kindness, compassion and knowledge combined with the experience of having walked this path of healing from chronic illness. She can teach you the science showing that your nervous system is a key to healing. She’ll help you get a set of tools to begin to heal and support for implementing approaches you can do at home. You’ll also have an ally. All of these will help you access the sense of wholeness and peace that is your birthright."

"Taking this course has had a substantial impact on the quality of my life. I am able to let things go easier, some of my physical ailments have significantly reduced as well. I also react to stressful situations with more ease. And I'm still learning!
Understanding how stress affects us is an eye-opener that everyone should have, and there is no better way to learn than with Dr. Amanda. Taking her course is like sitting at the kitchen table listening to a trusted friend tell you what you need to hear.
It's a wonderful gift to give to yourself ! " -Teresa T.
After being sick with auto-immune issues for over three decades this is the FIRST program that has made a difference. A difference in my sleep, anxiety, bodily aches and general well being -- with no gimmicks, no supplements and no add-ons to buy.
Amanda's gentle and motivational approach along with her incredible knowledge of the many aspects (mental, emotional, biological) of disease and how they interact is astounding. I have never met a doctor or a specialist who was so well versed and up to date. There is perfect timing in the introduction of new information as the program unfolds. She has laid out the program perfectly so that just when you begin to wonder or feel something new, bam, that's somehow intuitively the next module.
The program is very eye-opening and refreshing as it is the first time I have been told that my body is not working against me and that it is doing what it is supposed to be doing under the circumstances. It was life-changing to know that I am not a victim of my auto-immune condition and its liberating to know that my body is 'not against me'. I have never felt so safe, so informed and have never slept so well. -Lori D
Amanda came into my life at the most perfect time! I had been struggling with severe anxiety for years. Her naturopathic knowledge helped to improve my mental and physical health. She recommended resources to read as well as simple tools such as meditation, yoga and breathing exercises. Amanda is always available and very supportive when I need to talk. Amanda is such a gentle soul and is always willing to help. I would not be as healthy, mentally and physically without her expertise. I am forever Grateful! -Loretta Y:
This program has been a game-changer for me. I have let stress control my life---it has been my way of coping/existing for many years now. I am learning to slow down and just enjoy the little moments. I am trying to be more compassionate with myself. It is difficult for me to turn off my analytical brain.
I have eaten a very strict/healthy diet for over 3 year with very little improvement. Since starting Yoga and meditation, my gut health has improved significantly. I have spent thousands on supplements, books, doctors, etc. with little to no help. When I look in the mirror now, I see a person that enjoys smiling more. I see a person that is looking forward to the future instead of constantly thinking of the past. I see a person that is compassionate and full of love and forgiveness. I see a person that has realized that being positive is so much better than being negative. The world is an easier place to live when you live in the present and not in the past.
Thank you for teaching me the skills I need to get my life back. - Kim F
