Hi, I’m Sandika. It’s okay to need healing, and it’s okay to allow yourself to receive healing and support. I believe that the first step toward healing and change begins with having at least one person in our lives who we trust. The foundation of my coaching practice is to create a container of safety, understanding and trust. The philosophy behind Empowerment Coaching is that we can only create what our current emotional state allows us to create; entering the coaching
relationship means we are not alone, which positively changes our emotional state. When we are “in the muck,” our perception of reality is limited — and so is
our perception of what we can be, have, and do in life — but the more empowered we feel, the more incredible things we can create. When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change. The problem that clients often bring to me is that they show up in their relationships and other areas of their lives as their ‘wounded’ self. They want to trust in themselves and life again, but they come across roadblocks, which are
often unprocessed traumas. These traumas can manifest as emotional triggers, compulsions, a loss of energy, optimism, resourcefulness, and enthusiasm. I help my clients remove these roadblocks by applying the Gentle Trauma Release Method ©, which incorporates protocols that have stood the test of time, such as the Polyvagal Theory, EMDR, and EFT. We focus on the bodily level, targeting the root causes of trauma, and once the trauma is neutralized, the results are
long-lasting. Whether it’s: ROCD, Communication, Limiting beliefs, Low self-esteem, Trauma, A painful past -bWe can get to the root to help you create your most empowered life!

Sandika Joy Evergreen holds diplomas from Rhodes Wellness College, the S.W.A.T. Institute, and the Gentle Trauma Release Institute. Sandika helps people heal the root cause of ROCD and other symptoms, so they can finally break free from fear and live the life they truly desire. Sandika lives off the grid on a remote island in British Columbia, Canada. She offers empowerment adventures, retreats, and coaching to people ready to immerse themselves in nature while learning how to trust in themselves and life again! She is also the owner of Sandika’s Studio, a beauty salon and wellness hub on her island. In 2020 Sandika joined the team at The S.W.A.T. Institute (Simply Woman Accredited Trainer), a premier online global empowerment coach certification
exclusively for women, as the Mentorship Coaching Coordinator and an Assistant Professor in their Master Empowerment Coach Certification.
Sandika’s message is that it’s okay to need healing, and it’s okay to allow yourself to receive healing and support.
