Our Mission & Vision
Our vision is to help and encourage people, organisations and communities to improve their mental and emotional health.
We own our mistakes, ask for help when we need it, have the courage to have the difficult conversations and trust that we are enough
We encourage stopping and resting; choose to see the best in others and are clear and fair about boundaries
We are who we say we are and do what we say we’ll do; communicate clearly; partner with anyone who holds our values and we don’t need lots of rules
We don’t give up easily; give 100%; walk the extra mile with each other; always follow through and don’t always expect total agreement
We walk with empathy; practise patience and grace; honour holidays and individual needs; ask ‘how can I serve you?’ and never give up hope
“I have absolute confidence in Shona Stirling’s wisdom, integrity and leadership. She is a women who is gifted in many ways; she is attentive and insightful to the needs of the individual, yet has the ability to share her knowledge, experience and wisdom with a room full of people, in a simple, engaging and impacting way. With that formidable combination of gifts and attributes, it’s no surprise that Healing for the Heart is growing and developing at an exponential rate!”
– Kay Cathcart, Director of Cultivation, Cairn
That each individual person is unique, has a purpose and is able to connect or to reconnect with the best version of themselves.
That no one is beyond hope and that no situation is unredeemable.
In asking ‘What happened to you?’ rather than ‘Why do you do that?
That professional, timely, affordable support should be available to all regardless of their socio-economic status or life controlling behaviours.
