Stories of Healing

More Myself, Happy, Uplifted

Allison B, Canada

Haile, I am more myself than I have ever been. I remember listening to you speak at a woman’s event a few years ago and thinking, “I need to meet this person” but I wasn’t quite sure why. You were just so magnetic. Little did I know that I had so much healing to do. I soon came to realize that my struggle with anxiety and depression came from within me and not from the external factors I had always attributed it to - stressful job, volatile relationships, etc. You shined a light on what was right in front of me this whole time - I was unhappy with my body. It wasn’t the shape I wanted it to be despite my best “efforts” (restrictions/punishment/shame). I spent all my mind space thinking about eating, counting calories, how much exercise I needed to do, shaming myself into going to the gym or not eating or only eating vegetables. I was exhausted. You helped me recognize that these false realities I had made up about the world and myself were simply not true. You don’t have to be skinny to be loved, to get that great job, to wear a bathing suit, to be happy or to simply enjoy your life. I’ve been able to release these unobtainable standards for what society thinks my body should be and I now just allow it to simply, be. I don’t agonize over calories anymore. I don’t do exercises that I hate anymore. I don’t cringe at the thought of being in a bikini anymore. With the mind space that I’ve gained back and the guidance from you, I’ve learned listen to my body and understand what it needs - food, movement, space, rest. It’s so much easier to exist in this new harmony. I am loved. I am happy. It’s hard to put into words how thankful I am for you. It's also hard to explain exactly what it is you do to uplift and heal people. You are simply, magic. Because of you, I am more myself that I have ever been. And I like her. I am forever in your debt. xo


Niki H., BC Canada

I've done guided healing meditation, online work, and one on one mentoring before so I had a vague idea of what this would be like but I had no idea how intense and incredible it would be, in a good way! The sessions are well thought out to ease you into the healing space that your mind and body needs. Everyone with you is on their own journey but you're all essentially there for the same reason which personally helped me feel very comfortable. You can go in knowing what you need to heal or completely open minded, in the end your mind and body will guide you into entire process. The sessions, the chat support and meditations, and the private hypnotherapy all create a truly incredible experience. I have moved light years ahead in only 12 weeks. I can't even begin to describe how much relief and release I experienced through this journey. Dr. Haile is such a kind hearted old soul and her genuine energy makes you feel safe and truly cared for. You are in good hands in this space. I HIGHLY recommend this. You'll leave behind old patterns and move forward like never before.

111% Worth it

Kai K., BC Canada

6 months ago- Working with Dr. Haile is like working with a really honest best friend. Since meeting Haile just over a year ago, her impact on my life has been huge and just plain beautiful. I have done the FREEDOM program by Rising Retreats, a SoulStrong Intuition Intensive, and the SoulStrong Mediations for Intuition: A 28 Day Journey. The way she teaches is from her heart and everything she does, she does it with love and everyone’s best interest in mind. Her passion for helping people through the highs and lows is unmatched! As is her ability to hold/curate safe, supportive spaces for personal breakthroughs. She has helped me through so many blocks, whether it’s mentally, intuitively, emotionally, or getting back in your body/grounded - she’s there. I’m so grateful to have met her and I’m so glad started the programs! I know it can be a bit intimidating starting such deep work, but I promise you; it’s 111% worth it!

Reconnected with My Purpose, My Body, My Intuition

Trixie H., Canada

Working with Haile Michaelson has changed my life. Beyond a doubt. I have known Haile professionally for more than 8 years, she has helped guide me through the blocks that have kept me from alignment in all ways. I have reconnected with my purpose, my body and my intuition- as a result my day to day experience of being human (and a therapist) feels much more attuned and profound. I have recommended Haile to so many of my clients, and the feedback has been amazing every.single.time.!!! What I know for sure, is that healing is a parallel process. My wish for all of you, is that you find the places and spaces and healers to do your work. For me- that person is Haile. I wholeheartedly believe she can also be your person... just sayin'
