Want to Learn How to Get unSTUCK?

I used to get triggered and hijacked by my emotions quite often. Getting stuck led me to feel helpless and powerless in my life and in my relationships. I would get angry, disappointed, frustrated, and then blame others for how I was feeling. I would feel like a victim and would act in ways that I would only later regret. I was suffering and my relationships were suffering, but I never knew a way that could make me feel better in any moment.

I started to journal about this until one day, I considered that the answer to my struggles wasn’t going to come from changing other people, but rather from changing me. 

And then it finally came to me.

My name is Shira Taylor Gura and I know how to get unSTUCK. I created The S.T.U.C.K Method™ – a simple and easy-to-remember, step-by-step technique to help me stop being hijacked by my emotions and take better care of myself and my relationships. Once I realized how much it was helping me, I began to teach this method to others.

As a well-being coach, I help people regain control of their emotions and teach them how to feel better.  I know how to help people get unSTUCK because I know what it’s like to get stuck – and yet, I also know the feeling, joy, and relief of what it’s like to get unSTUCK. In fact, getting unSTUCK is the reason I am living my best life today!

I absolutely love guiding people with how to get unSTUCK and I love observing the major shifts that occur in their lives and in their relationships. I meet with my clients in person or via Skype to help them realize how they can specifically used this tool in their own lives to reclaim a sense of well-being and feel whole again. Contact me to set up a free mini-session or to learn more.

Now for some boring resume stuff… 😉

I received a B.A. in psychology from Rutgers University and an M.Sc. in occupational therapy with a focus on mental health from Boston University Sargent’s College. I received my 500-hour yoga certification from Integrative Yoga Therapy. For the past 18 years, I have facilitated hundreds of classes, groups and workshops both in America and in Israel.

I grew up in southern New Jersey and currently live with my husband and four children in northern Israel. My creative side drives me to do things like create music (check out my CD – “Day and Night – Gentle Hebrew music for Yoga, Meditation, and Prayer!) and write poetry (check out the Getting unSTUCK poem!)

Despite the similarity in the sounding of my last name, I do not consider myself a “guru”, but rather an on-going student regarding Getting unSTUCK.  As I continue to face my own everyday challenges, I continuously bring the wisdom I learn to those who are on this journey with me

I look forward to getting unSTUCK with you!

Avoiding obscure terminology, Shira Taylor Gura uses humour and everyday situations to explain how we can all avoid not only rushing to protect our egos, but also battling needlessly with reality.” Dr. Graham Stew, principal lecturer at the School of Health Sciences, University of Brighton, UK

“Going through the Getting UNSTUCK process cut lots of big-seeming thoughts and beliefs down to size.  Our minds can inflate the importance of things that don’t really matter so much.  Challenging them with this method forces us take a more accurate measure of how our thoughts and feelings really work.  Having gone through the process with my own “stuck” situation makes me think of walking through the woods where there is no path.  The first time is hard.  Do this for a week and the way becomes clear.” – John Eichenberger, LMHC, CASAC, Geneva, New York
