About

Surviving a traumatic experience changes your life forever. For many of us, the most difficult part of coping with our pain is the overwhelming sense that we are alone and the feeling that we should never talk about it. The weight of that loneliness and silence can be crushing. It can often make healing feel out of reach. Heal Her Heart is here to assure you that it isn’t. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to giving women a safe space and a helping hand to continue the work towards their journey of healing.

Heal Her Heart is the brainchild of our founder, Amanda Dookie, a certified counsellor. After publicly writing about her experience with abortion and the painful reminder of Mother’s Day, she received an overwhelming response from the women in her life. Many of them felt empowered to share stories of their own. The powerful feeling of relief and support inspired Amanda to build a platform to help other women. Out of one story came an organization to support other women as they make their hearts whole again. Through expressive writing therapy, compassionate counselling, and compelling media, we’re working to change the narrative for women living through trauma.

Core Values

We Value Women

Women’s healing requires a woman-centred approach. That’s why our organization employs a feminist lens that is inclusive and intersectional.

We Value Healing

At the core of what we do is the belief that broken hearts can be whole again. We hold our organization to the highest standard in ensuring that every woman we reach with our work is helped, not harmed.

We Value Confidentiality

We respect the courage it takes to share stories of trauma. Our counsellors maintain 100% confidentiality and anonymity is guaranteed on our storytelling platform.

We Value Inclusivity

Trauma does not discriminate and neither do we. We welcome women of all races, ages, sexes, religions and nationalities to use our services.
