My Story:

Dear colleagues,

I am thrilled to connect with all of you and share a profoundly transformative journey—a story of resilience, growth, and the unwavering spirit of a healthcare professional devoted to promoting mental and physical well-being through a trauma-informed approach.

From Success to Silent Struggle:

Before my journey through the depths of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), I achieved remarkable successes in the healthcare field. As a proud member of the team at the first halfway housing facility in Prague, I contributed to mental health reforms that reached across borders to impact lives in countries like Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Romania, and Albania.

I was passionate about knowledge dissemination and played a pivotal role in creating the first CNE e-learning platform in the Czech Republic, an initiative that aimed to elevate care standards. Additionally, my unwavering commitment led to the groundbreaking achievement of community psychosocial rehabilitation services reimbursement for psychiatric nurses from health insurance providers in the Czech Republic.

My passion for teaching led me to the prestigious Charles University in Prague, where I had the privilege of serving as a teacher of Theory of Nursing and Lifestyle, guiding and shaping the next generation of healthcare professionals.

Fueling my quest for understanding mental health complexities, I hold a Bachelor of Nursing with specialization in Psychiatric Nursing. I further honed my expertise through comprehensive training in psychodynamic group therapy and the prestigious Train the Trainers program in Comprehensive Approach to Psychosocial Rehabilitation.

However, amid these achievements, life’s adversities struck, and I found myself grappling with a decade-long, silent struggle. Overwhelmed by shame and self-blame, I was unaware of what was happening within me. I suffered in silence, hesitating to seek help, and carried the burden of unresolved trauma.

The Journey of Awakening:

In May 2023, during my EMDR training, a moment of profound clarity arose. I discovered that I had been silently wrestling with Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD). Everything finally fell into place, illuminating the path towards healing.

This personal awakening became the foundation of my Homeostatica approach—a holistic framework that balances minds and nurtures hearts. I realized that, as healthcare professionals, we, too, can be vulnerable to stress and PTSD, often carrying these burdens in silence.

With newfound clarity and determination, I embarked on a journey of healing and resilience. Today, I stand as a testament to the indomitable spirit within us all—a healthcare professional devoted to guiding others towards light and growth.

Mission and Vision:

My mission is clear—to walk alongside each of you, my esteemed colleagues, on your unique journeys. Together, we shall embrace trauma-informed care that empowers you to rise from adversity, find healing, and unleash your true potential.

In this collegial space, you are never alone. My experiences, knowledge, and empathy stand firmly with you, supporting and guiding you every step of the way. Together, we create a resilient and thriving healthcare community—one that uplifts and empowers each other through life’s challenges.

With Profound Empathy and Boundless Hope,

Sasha Weedowitch
