LOVE yourself - BE yourself - EXPRESS yourself
I'm Erna Stassen. I am a passionate TRUTH SPEAKER, a Lighthearted Revolutionary, and I am obsessed with improving lives and the world we live and love in.
Tired of pretending to feel fine, while on the inside you feel lost, stuck and overwhelmed?
Are you frustrated because you constantly hit the same, old limitations?
Maybe you don’t trust your body, your decisions, yourself?
Feel like everything is outside of your control?
Your stress and pain are affecting your life in all areas: relationships, social life, career, financially. You are afraid to make any plans for your future, for fear of more disappointment, more ‘I can’t'.
You are putting your life on hold, yourself on a shelf, just getting by, going through the motions, making it through the day as best you can.
I have seen it while working with patients as a physiotherapist for 25 years, and I had my own personal experience with severe migraines, back pain, gut issues, depression and anxiety.
I just wanted to disappear, end my life, end my misery. My life was on hold for four years while I was struggling with these issues.
I turned it around. And I know you can too.
What I figured out was my health issues weren’t the problem. They were a symptom of something deeper. I found the problem behind the pain: Loss, grief, betrayal, feeling victimized. And then I went deeper.
The most powerful thing I ever learned is our beliefs create our reality. What we believe is the cause of how we feel and behave, and what we attract in our lives.
Either we let our minds be in control, or we choose to take control of our minds.
As a physiotherapist, I was expected to help people with their physical health. But I found myself working more and more on their moods and mindset, their habits of thought and their beliefs.
I know health is a state of mind. So much so, that I retired my physiotherapy practice and now bring my knowledge and expertise into the field of coaching, training and mentorship.
The health problem is not the problem. It’s the belief that we have a health problem that is the problem. It is the belief we can’t have good health that is the problem.
You know you didn’t come here to be controlled by pain, stress and worry.
You want to feel energized, healthy, confident and alive.
You want to connect, have fun, have great relationships, a social life, an active life, with purpose and fulfillment.
You want to feel free, abundant, in charge of your life.
But you don’t know how.
I know how, and it’s not that complicated. It is simple. The solution is hiding in plain sight. And I know you can do it.
You can get where you want from wherever you are. All you need to do is decide what it is you want and then believe you can have it.
And you don’t have to do it alone.
I can help you see beyond the stress and pain and go after health, joy, and fulfillment.
When you decide to work with me, you will:
I will help you uncover your superwoman and fuel the fire of passion and love for life and yourself.
Just like being in survival mode affects your life in all areas, being in growth mode will also affect your relationships, your career, your social life, your activity, your sense of purpose and fulfillment.
You will discover that feeling good can be your default, and being happy is the root of health and well-being.
Erna Stassen BSc. PT
I was born and raised in the Netherlands. I realized my dream to live, work and play in Canada when I immigrated to BC in 2003 and became a Canadian citizen.
I have bachelor degrees in kinetic science and physiotherapy. I worked with people of all ages, from baby to senior, in private practice, rehabilitation centres, hospitals, schools, and home and community care.
After a personal health crisis, I decided to start my own practice and I developed a treatment program in a warm water pool. I worked as a consultant in a chronic pain clinic and provided people with therapy at home.
After working in the health care system for over 25 years, I retired as a physiotherapist.
I am a Coach. I inspire people to transform their lives into healthy, happy, productive, purposeful, and abundant lives. This means creating a life with meaningful relationships, a fulfilling lifestyle, and freedom.
Learning and researching is one of my passions, especially in the field of psychology, neuropsychology, self development, mindfulness and meditation. I love to learn and will never stop learning.
Helping others gain health and happiness has always been my main objective, realizing that this starts with me.
