Gentle Trauma Assessment

Dear Visitor...

 Finding the right person to help you on your healing journey is not always an easy task. Sorting your way through names, faces, social media posts, recommendations from friends or family can feel daunting.

The purpose of this page is to help you connect with me. For you to get to know me. For you to look into my eyes. For you to listen to my voice to sense if I could be the right person to assist you with what you need.

Here are some tips to help you decide if a particular person is the right Practitioner for you. You want to feel:

Connection This is when something about your practitioner resonates with you. The practitioner speaks to you.  
Trust You want to trust your practitioner as an expert and as a human being. You want to feel safe with them. 
Inspiration The right practitioner will make you feel hopeful. Like there is a way. You will feel excited about working with them. At least, a tingling of excitement.

Donna S. Vieira

Ontario, CANADA


 I am thrilled to see you here! My name is Donna Vieira and I am a certified Gentle Trauma Release© Practitioner.


I spent 25 years in various marketing positions in the Canadian airline industry. However, it was the travel and writing that truly made my heart sing.


At 44, I retired from the airline to venture off on my own into the travel media world.  For the next 25 years, I was a freelance travel writer and editor for a major Canadian travel and lifestyle magazine, experiencing the world and reporting on my adventures, many of which put me in touch with local healers and practices.


In December 2019, I hung up my hat as magazine editor to focus on my other long-held passion for the healing arts, which include Reiki, Astrology, Empowerment Coaching, and now, the Gentle Trauma Release Method©.  I relish the idea that I can combine these skills to assist and support women around the world who aspire to embrace their unique greatness and become who they are truly meant to be in this lifetime.

The Gentle Way

Resolving trauma is possible, but one has to go about it with gentleness…taking into account the unique experience and circumstances of the person looking to heal.

My Story

Perhaps it’s easier to get to know a person better when you understand what motivates them to do the work they do. I would love to share with you why I do what I do and what inspires me to offer this work to help another. 



In this video, I share some of my background and what led me to become a Gentle Trauma Release© Practitioner.


Simply put : I do what I do because I firmly believe we are all born for one reason – to serve others and evolve humankind, and I can think of no better way to fulfill my destiny than to help others to accept and love their unique, authentic selves, flaws and all.

Healing Client Stories

Allow me to share with you some of the healing stories from my practice.



In this video, I share how the Gentle Trauma Release Method© helped me to overcome chronic lower back pain.




In this video, I share  examples of how the Gentle Trauma Release Method© helped a couple of my clients.


There is no bigger joy than witnessing someone unblock their authentic expression and become the powerful, effective human being they were always meant to be.
Donna’s Mantra …

The power to create change resides within us. Give yourself permission to gently lean into the hardest, most unloved parts of who you are and give them some airtime. This is your birthright and the key to your freedom.

Healing and Happiness

We are social beings who all long to be loved and understood.   
You deserve to fall in love with yourself, just as you are, in your most natural state.
Loving yourself allows you to have compassion for others and understand why someone may be so sensitive, too talkative, shy or outgoing. 
The crises that arise in your life are here to serve you, not hurt you.
Life just wants you to learn, grow and keep your heart wide open.
It’s important to tell your stories and describe your wounds. But with what intention? 
Tell your victim story three times: once for the mind, once for the body and once for the soul. Then ask, “What am I supposed to be learning as a result?”
You are who you are. It’s never about changing your nature. It’s about rewriting your story, embracing your shadow with compassion, so you can live as a kind, loving being.
True healing lies wherever your greatest pain lives. It is the rocket fuel to get you to your purpose and wisdom. Your pain and your purpose are one and the same.
I’m here for you …

You can experience a profound release when it comes to the traumatic memories and emotions that have been haunting you. You can get your life back.  It really is possible to release the painful past for good. But it doesn’t magically happen… A reliable, powerful tool is needed to help you with that. The Gentle Trauma Release Method© is that tool.

More Happy Clients

Each person who shared their path with me is a source of my infinite gratitude. Here are some messages from my past clients sharing their healing experience.


I reached out to Donna because I found myself in a phase of heightened anxiety, which interfered with my relationship and general well-being. Even though I worked with therapists and coaches before, I had not been able to fully process and integrate some of my past traumas. My 9 sessions with Donna were really powerful and healing at the same time. From the first session, I could feel how my body was releasing tension, stress and fear.

Donna is a wonderful coach who always made me feel safe, heard and understood. The Gentle Trauma Release Method she used was very beneficial for me. I not only gained many new insights about myself, but most of all, I learned exercises and techniques, which I can practice myself. I feel much more confident and secure now, all thanks to Donna and the wonderful sessions with her! I can wholeheartedly recommend working with Donna, I am so glad I did! Thank you!

One of the things Donna helped me with was with relationships in general. I do not promote programs or people I don’t believe in. I’m a tester who must experience first. A session with Donna moves you forward.  

When you work with Donna, you feel like you’re sitting with a mentor who is also a good friend. She genuinely cares about you and wants to see you embrace who you truly are. It’s amazing!

met my Portuguese husband of 22 years in Greece. He thinks he looks like Antonio Banderas!
I am a movie fanatic and love the big screen experience a movie theatre offers, complete with fresh-popped popcorn. 
My husband and I have owned and operated a B&B in Ontario, Canada since 2002.
