I had the privilege of interviewing Amy Willis. Amy is a mindset and sobriety coach living in Toronto, Canada. Amy grew up with the ups and downs of living with someone who struggles with alcoholism. There are very good times and bad times. She began struggling with her own relationship with alcohol in high school. Over 15 years the struggle would continue until she hit a point that she knew she needed to change something about how she related to alcohol. Once she found sobriety, she developed what she felt was lacking when she was getting sober. She founded Hol and Well coaching and can be found at holandwell.com
From Amy’s website:
“I’ve been working professionally in the recovery space for more than 3 years and recently celebrated 6 years of sobriety. I arrived at this work after struggling with a severe alcohol addiction for more than 15 years. I also grew up in a home where my dad struggled with alcohol addiction, ultimately leading to his early passing.
As such, this work is both deeply personal and meaningful for me. When I got sober, there were few options that spoke to my needs as a woman and as a queer person and I knew it was vital to address the whole person when it comes to healing through recovery and sobriety.
I created an evidence-based, interdisciplinary, holistic approach to healing and recovery that speaks to the unique needs of women and LGBTQ+ folks in recovery spaces.
Sobriety and recovery can feel complicated and overwhelming. As your sober coach, I bring the combination of lived experience and acquired expertise in the field of addiction and recovery to remove the overwhelm and complication from the process.
I wholeheartedly believe in you, know that you already have everything you need inside you and that you can change your life, creating something that feels aligned, authentic and yours.
As your coach, I’m here to support you in remembering and re-connecting to yourself while providing you with support, tools, guidance and mentorship along the way. You can do this alone but you don’t have to.
I KNOW the power and freedom to be found in sobriety and it would be my honor to support you in your journey”
