My Story

It's Holly Here...

I am an author, speaker, reiki master and healing coach on a mission to help women heal so they can live their best life. 

My healing journey began after being hospitalized for postpartum psychosis after having my daughter. I was highly medicated during this time. My life had fallen apart, going through a separation, a bankruptcy, losing our house, moving back to my Dad and step Moms place at the age of 27 years old with a 5 month and then getting laid off from my job I was suppose to return back to after mat leave. I felt like nothing good was ever going to happen for me. 

I started to dive deep into learning about the subconscious mind, healing the body ourselves, and learning about the body, mind and soul and how everything is connected. I started with nutrition and then was introduced to Reiki and fell in love. I had reiki done on me for over 5 years and then had this deep desire to be about to help others heals the holistic way. My passion lead me to open my own coaching business to be able to help woman heal.


Since starting my healing journey I have remained off medication for 6 years, do not suffer from depression, found tools to help deal with anxiety, quit drinking and living a much happier life. I have been able to build up my confidence, I know my worth, set healthy boundaries, and doing a career that I am so passion about and love whole heartedly. 

Growing Up

As young as a can remember, I wanted to make a huge impact in this world. I had no idea how I was going to do that. I was a big dreamer at a young age and little by little I was told that I would never happen for me. Slowly, I was conditioned by my environment, society and the world that I wasn't worthy, I wouldn't be able to change the world, and someone like me wouldn't make it. I started to believe all the lies that I was told.   

I stopped sharing my desires and dreams with people because I didn't want to be made fun of. I went into a deep depression when I was a teenager and the first thing the doctors wanted to do was to put me on medication. The medication didn't help. Things kept pilling up and I thought the world would be a better place without me. At the age of 16, I tried to end my life. It was suggested that I live in a safe environment and live someone else where I could recover because there was too much going on in our home life. During my stay, I was sexual abused and when I told people I was called a troubled teenager looking for attention. I turned to drugs and alcohol to help me cope. I stopped telling people things because I didn't want to be called a lair and I would always question if I was right or maybe I was making things up. 

Fast forward to when I was in a common law relationship and we were having a baby. (Yes! she was planned) A few months after my daughter was born I was hospitalized for postpartum psychosis. It took me a year and a half to get off medication and two years to be discharged from the heads up program. 

After I was hospitalized within 6 months I lost my house, got separated, moved in with my dad and step mom, went through a bankruptcy, and got laid off from the job I was suppose to go back to after mat leave. I was 27 years old and I thought my life was over. I didn't think that I anyone could ever love me, I didn't think that I would ever get a job little lone a career that I liked. I thought I would be live a unhappy and unfulfilling life after. I always asked how does one come back from this?

My Passion

Throughout the course of my life, I have experienced several traumatic situations. Although many might look at this as a weakness, I have used it as a motivation to upgrade my life. With this, it has giving me the strength to want to help others get through difficult times. 

I find real joy in helping others start to heal their life and living in a state of happiness. With all the darkness I have been through I would never want anyone to experience that and if they are, they should not be doing it alone. 

Upgrade your Life Academy has helped so many people get their life back. Learning how to love themselves, releasing shame, guilt and negative energies from their body. We all have our wounds that need to be healed so we can live freely. 

My passion is to help as many people as I can. I want to learn more about you. I absolutely love getting to know people and I want to know more about YOU! Don't be shy, send me a message, join one of my programs or if you see me out and about don't be scared to say Hello. I can't wait to hear from you. 

So much love 

Holly Finucan
