Healing Stories

“Somehow, miraculously, my journeys into my shadow self with Vince’s loving guidance have been both profound and deeply healing. The shift in me has been tangible. Energy is flowing, relationships are deepening, anxiety, depression and insomnia are disappearing. Appetite is back. Natural great peace is happening. Rarely in life do we meet such a gifted healer and teacher like Vince. Eternally grateful.” ~ Sarah

“After years of seeking help for relationship issues and deep feelings of anxiety and ‘not good enough’, I finally found Vince. With an infinite amount of empathy, gentle care and wisdom, he held my deepest pain, safely guiding me into my body where past emotional trauma was able to bubble up, be seen and felt, and without judgement. Vince has given me the tools to be my own healer, to hold myself when the past shows up in the present, to feel and respect my feelings without attaching to the old mental ‘meaning-making’. If you’re looking for a True Healer, I highly recommend Vince Gowmon!” ~ Sophie

“Vince was unequivocally confident when he said to me, ‘You’ll never be the same’. I haven’t been since the ceremony. I had a sacred and ineffable encounter with the numinous that has changed my life and I experienced deep healing around my deceased father. A great deal of old, heavy energy was released from my body and I now have more vitality than I have had in years, and it feels amazing! More so, my leg pain and sleep have also improved dramatically. It’s been a long time since I have slept as deeply and well as I do now. Thank you Vince for your healing heart and hands. May you continue to hear the pain of the heart below the plethora of words spoken by those who come to you for help.” ~ Alma

“Three months ago I started doing BioDynamic Breathwork with Vince. In a supportive, trusting and safe environment, Vince has helped me release emotions and stress associated with trauma. After six sessions, my eyesight has improved—my eyes have literally opened wider—, I have more energy, feel more empowered, and experience my mind and body as more connected. It really feels like my body is awakening. I highly recommend Vince and this particular kind of somatic therapy.” ~ Anne

“A sense of deep repair has occurred as a result of working with Vince. He operates out of genuine service to, and respect for, my sovereignty, process, and timetable. While encouraging me to move ever closer toward my growth edge, there’s never pressure. I’ve worked with other therapists and can say that Vince is uniquely gifted in offering genuine compassion and acceptance. Our work together has allowed me to feel completely safe in being increasingly transparent and vulnerable with him, and this vulnerability has extended to other relationships in my life. Vince’s ability to witness and receive that vulnerability, without judgment, has enabled me to discover the inherent dignity and value of expressing those most vulnerable aspects of myself.” ~Dawn

“For 20 years, I have struggled with a very painful, weak shoulder and arm that were exacerbated by exercise, such as shovelling snow or raking leaves. Since Vince performed the three distant healings, that shoulder and arm have been completely pain-free, even when subjected to hours of physical labour. Also, prior to the healings, my whole upper back was tender and aching for months due to stress and depression, and now that pain is totally non-existent. More so, pain and stiffness in my hips due to advanced osteo-arthritis has been reduced. This is all quite miraculous to me. My skepticism did not allow me to fully believe Vince could help given that fairly advanced decay of bone, muscle and cartilage is not easily reversed. I can’t recommend him highly enough. As a healer, on many levels, Vince will support and enhance the metamorphosis of anyone willing to trust.” ~ Linda

“Vince provided a sense of complete safety during ceremony. That safety, in turn, allowed me to surrender and trust. Vince incorporated his musical giftedness as part of the ceremony, while remaining astutely attuned to my internal experience. What unfolded was a deep release of long held grief, as well as connection to a pure and beautiful place of sacred expression that wants to move through me and out into the world. Weeks later, the ceremony continues to reverberate. It’s as if a huge sigh was let go. There’s a new capacity to move through the world with ease and assurance. My life is forever changed.” ~ Jodie

“Working with Vince has helped me to respond more and react less, to be kinder to myself and experience less fear and anxiety. His warm, open, playful and patient manner creates a safe and encouraging space to see and feel into the parts of me locked away and wishing room to breathe. Gradually, with Vince’s help, I am unlayering one layer at a time, building confidence, and feeling safer each day to be my best self.” ~ Rachel

“With Vince’s help I have healed childhood wounds, slowed down and learned to love myself. This has contributed immensely to me feeling more emotionally present and connected to my kids and family, to becoming a more conscious parent. The difficult moments from my childhood have far less influence on how I respond to my kids today and there is more room within to respond from clarity, patience and love. Overall, in all areas of my life, I feel greater amounts of inner peace. Thank you, Vince!” ~ Yasmin

“Vince helped immensely in my healing, which led to him to work with my beautiful son who is diagnosed with autism. Daily, he has faced challenges that arise from sensory overload from such things as loud and unexpected noises, large crowds, and new environments. He has also struggled communicating. After completing six distant healing sessions with Vince I noticed significant changes in my boy. First and foremost, he referred to me for the first time ever as ‘my mommy’. When he is in need of help, instead of crying, he now asks for me. His self-regulation and self-awareness have improved dramatically, as well. Dogs barking were normally a trigger resulting in extreme meltdowns, but now he says ‘dog’ and covers his ears. If he hears sudden noises while we are out he runs to or asks for me and, together, we work through it. As a family these are substantial improvements that allow more flexibility in our daily routine and outings. I am thankful to have Vince for guidance for myself and for my son as we continue on our journey.” ~ Mary

“Vince’s compassionate presence and guidance created the space to process some deep grief that had been held in my lung since I was a child. The physical pain had become so alarming that I was planning to go see a doctor for answers and relief. After a profound ceremony with Vince, the pain had passed and weeks later has completely disappeared. I am very grateful to have worked through the source of my emotional and physical distress with the help of Vince’s intuitive healing.” ~ Louise

“For more than ten years, I had constant pressure on one side of my skull and sinus that could not be addressed by conventional medical diagnoses and treatment. Three distant healing sessions from Vince helped lift the fog and brought significant relief to the swollen sensations on my skull. More so, I experienced a feeling of lightness and my energy levels improved as well. This result is quite remarkable, if not miraculous. Vince has been a patient and supportive healer to me during the entire process. I wholeheartedly recommend both his somatic counselling and distant healing work.” ~ Darnell

“Vince creates a safe and compassionate space where honesty and integrity are valued, and my darkest secrets and most painful memories can be shared. He listens compassionately through my tears, anger and rants and responds with care, wisdom, understanding and integrity. He has helped me to begin to understand the complexity of my grief and pain. I highly recommend his expertise and honesty to everyone that needs a sensitive ear and a compassionate, listening heart.” ~ Lydia

“Thanks to our ceremonies, my physical body transformed dramatically. For years I coped with chronic pain and inflammation that resulted in a painful deformation in both hands, and I suffered limited mobility and strength in most major joints. After the first two ceremonies, my deformed fingers became straight again, which had not been the case for the previous five years. As we continued our work, my circulation improved, pain diminished, mobility returned, and energy and vitality was felt more fully. All these internal shifts translated into outer changes. For years I lived very isolated, fearful of the world; yet, the ceremonial work helped me gain the confidence to explore new events, ideas, places and people – often on my own! Vince assisted me in getting to know, accept and love all parts of me.” ~ Lana

“I’ve had constant pain in my left shoulder, pec and hip flexor for a few years. As a fitness instructor this really limited me when I would exercise and it was so frustrating that I couldn’t push my body the way I knew I should be able to. After three distance healing sessions with Vince, I no longer feel any pain or discomfort. I had accepted the fact that this would be something I would have to live with for the rest of my life. Even physiotherapy, massage, and acupuncture were barely temporary fixes. I am now able to exercise without modifying and the range of motion in my arm is something I won’t take for granted again. It’s still shocking to me that Vince, through his distance healings, was able to relieve my physical symptoms when no other practitioner had been able to. Vince has been so helpful to me in such a short time in my healing and self care and I hope that he’s someone who will be guiding me for a long time.” ~ Ange

“Vince has been an absolute game changer for me in my personal and professional life. He has been so helpful in evolving my relationship with myself and my loved ones. I appreciate Vince’s gentle assertiveness and I am impressed by his intuitive ability to see and understand what needs to come out during our sessions. In only 7  months I’ve been able to deepen my self-love and understanding of who I am and why I’ve had certain behaviours that weren’t serving me anymore. The coolest part of our work has been discovering my inner ‘Medicine Woman’—a magical side I always knew was inside of me that Vince helped rise to the surface. I’m very grateful to have Vince beside me in my journey to self-love!” ~ Katie

“Intensely moving, fascinating and profound. Thank you Vince for the healing I received. Since our ceremony I have felt a renewed sense of excitement and self-worth which continues to resonate.” ~ Thomas

“When I began to take steps for major change in my life, I knew I didn’t want to do it alone. What I was trying to do was more feeling than focus and I was lucky enough to meet Vince. During our initial conversation, he asked intelligent questions that got to the core of what I was trying to do. I knew he was the person to work with when his careful probing touched me emotionally and he sensed my energy change – and this was via Skype! Vince didn’t work with a formula. He worked with me. As I step into a great adventure, I do so with powerful understanding that Vince was able to draw out. His authenticity helped me access mine. What a beautiful way of being!” ~ Joanna Marie Roche

“Vince’s ceremonies have been utterly life changing. I came to him feeling weighed down, broken and alone, yet, particularly after the fourth and most recent ceremony, I felt whole, and a million times lighter inside. I was able to connect with and let go of old childhood wounds and clear a lot of energy that was holding me back. I felt, and continue to feel, a deep, pervading love that now helps me be a better mother. My work with Vince has been so profound in ways that I never imagined possible. I have a deep respect for Vince and trust in him that words cannot truly express. He is a gifted healer and I’m beyond grateful.” ~ Samantha

“For over two decades, I struggled with severe, chronic pain that limited my ability to enjoy life. Specifically, I suffered with arthritis, tightness and mobility issues in my hips, shoulders, neck, hands and feet that years of osteopathy, massage, acupuncture, acupressure and Reiki could not heal. After receiving six distant healing sessions from Vince, I’m happy to say that I’ve experienced a 90% reduction in pain. More so, I’ve noticed a markable improvement in my range of motion, mood, energy, creativity, as well as increased capacity to manage stress and uncertainty. I’m deeply grateful for Vince’s gift and can’t recommend him enough!” ~ Tasha

“I have had great results with Vince’s distant healing sessions. My nervous system was working in over drive from being very sick and I was housebound from being so unwell and feeling shaky. Vince did some distant healing work for me and after I felt more settled and at peace in my body. My nervous system started to calm and the shaking slowed considerably. The day after my session I was able to leave the house and run an errand for the first time in weeks. Thanks Vince, your distant healing work is powerful!” ~ Christina

“Vince has been instrumental to my healing. The day I walked into my first therapy session with him I felt understood, and after leaving I felt a deep sense of peace. Prior to Vince, for many months I tried cognitive talk and NLP therapy, but nobody was able to get to the core as Vince did. Vince has a healing gift. He is kind, gentle and respectful yet not afraid to be strong in guiding you to your truth. After seeing Vince you will find yourself not only on a healing path but truly understanding why you feel the way you do.” ~ Natalie

“I had two distant healing sessions with Vince for a painful sinus issue I’ve had for more than two years. Doctors and specialists were unable to diagnose the issue or do more than prescribe medication. Nothing they did changed my situation. After the first session with Vince I noticed the effects right away. My symptoms were not gone but much easier to be with. I also had more energy. The second session had a longer lasting effect, and again, the intensity of my symptoms lightened. Since then, things have been moving more fluidly with a heavier discharge, which encourages me to think the issue is resolving. Thank you Vince, you’ve given me some precious relief!” ~ Carlos

“I highly recommend Vince. He is genuine, talented and passionately committed to his calling. As a counsellor, he is unfailingly compassionate and gifted in sensing areas of need and guiding transformation.” ~ Katherine

“Somatic counselling sessions with Vince has been a very important piece of my healing journey. He has helped me to work through past trauma on the deepest level to heal my sensitive nervous system and eliminate unpleasant physical symptoms while processing through some dark and heavy emotions, which I have been unable to do in the past with other types of counselling. Vince creates a safe space where I am able to let my guard down, trust and truly express my feelings and work through what comes up. I am becoming more confident, feeling stronger, healthier and more resilient. I couldn’t have achieved this without you. Thank you Vince.” ~ Suzanna 

“Working with Vince was like taking a breath of air for the first time. It was in many ways for me where I began to see the world and myself more clearly.” ~ Vanessa

“What a positive impact you have had on my life. In my quest to maintain control of everything I was losing control and losing myself. I’m so excited to be reclaiming myself and to be starting to peel back the layers to show my authentic self. Thanks for the gift Vince!” ~ Brandi

“Vince and I have built a relationship based on trust, acceptance and honour. He makes me comfortable by creating a non judgemental environment where I can say what I feel and know that even if he were to disagree, he respects my freedom to do so. Through our sessions, I have begun to develop a deeper understanding of myself and how I energetically connect to the universe. Vince is helping me to discover the parts of myself that have influenced my behavior, thoughts and feelings which have remained ‘locked away’ in my nervous system. I am now calmer, more introspective and excited to continue the journey.” ~ Dave

“Highly intuitive, Vince is a gifted healer who brings a variety of elements to each ceremony. He creates a compassionate, protected, safe, open, accepting environment that fosters the opportunity for deep healing and release.” ~ Tammy

“I sought out Vince when I was feeling stuck moving forward in my life with the same negative patterns/situations continuing to repeat themselves. I love how he uses a mix of talk therapy, life coaching and somatic trauma resolution to identify and address each issue in the best way possible. With Vince’s help, I have learned what thought patterns and deeply held beliefs have held me back, and have gained the tools necessary to work through them and approach life situations in better, healthier and more productive ways. Since working with Vince I feel more confident and better equipped to move forward into a new and better life, following my passion and doing what I truly want to do. ” ~ Bonnie

“Vince put me completely at ease. Talking with him felt completely natural, safe and inviting, helping me to reflect deeply, and having a lasting impact.” ~ Jennifer
