Get unSTUCK!

We all have our stories.

All of us!

In fact, each day we come up with more and more stories to our life situations without even realizing it.

We get triggered by something, we form an opinion about it, and we unconsciously create a story in our mind about that situation.

That’s just how it works.

And then, we get stuck.

Stuck on anxiety, frustration, anger, disappointment, guilt, resentment, and embarrassment, just to name a few.

And getting stuck in those emotions deeply affects our life and relationships.

If this is happening to you….


I used to get stuck on these emotions all the time!

You see, I did not grow up with a method to help me get unstuck from everyday emotional stumbles or big, complex issues and because of that my relationships suffered and I struggled.

I would live my life from one stuck situation to the next!

When I started blogging in 2012, I began to realize how my stuck stories were apparently blinding me from reality and preventing me from accessing my inner wisdom. I knew there must have been another way! I knew I needed something I could rely and depend upon to help me get unstuck everyday!

I created The S.T.U.C.K. Method™ to promote emotional well-being and I have never looked back since.

Because I realized staying “stuck” is a choice.

As in the words of Viktor Frankl, “Between every stimulus and response there is a space. And in that space is your power to choose your response. And in that response lies your freedom and your growth.”

I realized I have the power to choose to Get unSTUCK!

Now I not only know how to get unstuck (and to do it quickly and efficiently before it affects me and those around me), but I understand there is a deeper meaning to those experiences. Practicing The S.T.U.C.K. Method helps me make my life as rich and rewarding as it can be.

It’s a completely and entirely new way of living.


I learned how to get unSTUCK and so can YOU!

Can you imagine what your life would look like if you knew how to get yourself unSTUCK from all those emotionally challenging situations you find yourself in?

Like getting unSTUCK from fear, anxiety, frustration, anger, disappointment, guilt, resentment, and embarrassment, just to name a few?

It looks pretty awesome, doesn’t it?

Well, I can attest that it IS awesome!

There’s nothing like it in the world.

And in fact, I must say I feel blessed (even though it took me nearly 40 years of living on this Earth to figure it out) that I know how to get myself unSTUCK and live my best life ever, no matter what others are doing around me.

And you can be next!

But, you need to know how to get unSTUCK.

Because it doesn’t happen naturally.

If this sounds like you, I have a solution that will have you thinking differently about your life and your relationships. You’ll be able to start making changes that you thought possible.

What’s the solution?

Learn The S.T.U.C.K. Method and start implementing it in your life!

It’s really that simple.

But, I mean really implementing it into your life.

I don’t mean start thinking about implementing it into your life.

I mean do the work to implement it in your life.

So, you want to get unSTUCK? You have to do the work.

It’s as simple as that.

And, how do you do the work?

You go through The S.T.U.C.K. Method, one “stuck” experience at a time.

But, in the beginning it’s a bit hard, because it’s like walking through uncharted territory. It’s unfamiliar, and you don’t really know how or where to start.

And that’s where I come in.

I can help you.

When I coach my clients, we break down those “stuck” stories into bite size pieces so we can look at, explore, and investigate them – in order to understand what is going on; I coach my clients to access their inner wisdom and recognize alternative perspectives to their stories they may not be able to see – thereby helping them Get unSTUCK.

It’s an awesome, awesome journey.

(*But, don’t take my word for it. Read through all the testimonials on this website. You will hear from women and men, of different ages and different cultures, living in different areas of the world. They ALL have learned the tools to get unSTUCK!)

“What makes Shira such an effective coach is her willingness to be human and let people see the imperfect side of her. She offers excellent role modeling for so many of us who are afraid to let our imperfections show, but know that real growth comes from being willing to take chances and to sometimes fail.” Becky, Sunnyvale, CA 

“I appreciate how Shira is genuine and authentic showing us how you she uses the method, how it is difficult for her sometimes, reminding us that we are all human.  She isn’t preaching what we should do and that it will make it all better.  Rather she is doing it with us and showing us that it can be challenging but worth practicing and trying over and over again.  I appreciate it when someone is alongside me and relatable rather than feeling they are preaching down because they have complete control over their life, leaving me to wonder why can’t I do the same.” – Susan, New York, NY 

“Shira has such a straightforward, doable system that it was a pleasure to work with her.” – Sara, Cleveland, Ohio

“Shira helped me realize valuable insights as I learned how to deal and process through some of my “stuck” spots. I would highly recommend working with her.” – Baila, Jerusaem, Israel

“What I received most with working with Shira is self-awareness. I’ve learned to catch myself many times a day when I found myself “stuck”. I’ve become more deliberate with my thinking and less reactive. Learning how to process getting unstuck in the moment has become almost like a daily habit.” – Christine, Phila, PA

“When we get stuck in life, we often create suffering for others as well as ourselves. Learning to free oneself from this pattern is at the heart of The S.T.U.C.K. Method. Shira Taylor Gura has created a simple acronym S.T.U.C.K as a process for looking deeply at the triggers, thoughts, emotions and stories that we tell ourselves — some of which have the potential of becoming a lifetime script.” – Jerry Braza, Ph.D., author of The Seeds of Love: Growing Mindful Relationships  

“The Stoics of Ancient Greece cautioned us to check in with our emotions and consider whether each of our emotional reactions is serving us or has the potential to harm us (or others). In the 1950s and 1960s, psychiatrist Aaron Beck and clinical psychologist Albert Ellis introduced new types of talk therapies that clinicians may employ with clients, cognitive therapies, in which the connection between thoughts and emotions is explored and thoughts are modified to enhance mental health. Today we can engage in such self-examination without a therapist. Shira Taylor Gura presents a simple, step-by-step, and easy-to-remember process through which we may notice and gain control of our emotions, thereby enhancing our well-being. Several other do-it-yourself cognitive therapy systems exist, but Ms. Gura’s is particularly simple to implement and memorable. Try her approach once and I think you will be S.T.U.C.K. on it.” –Gretchen M. Reevy, PhD, editor of The Praeger Handbook on Stress and Coping and author of Encyclopedia of Emotion.

“The S.T.U.C.K. Method has been life-transforming for me in my roles as family member, friend, and physician. Each of us can use this powerful technique to guide our thoughts and emotions, and thereby our bodies, away from unnecessary, heart pounding distress and towards mindful, health-promoting calm.”  Shoshana T. Melman, MD, Pediatrician & Director, Foster Care Program; CARES Institute

“Challenging one’s automatic beliefs and interpretations, along with finding self compassion for themselves, is key to living a life of peace, joy and freedom. Shira Taylor Gura finds a simple way to help people find new ways of thinking, not only about challenging situations they may face, but also about embracing a new way of relating to themselves.” – Joanna F. Kleinman, LCSW, Creator of the “Dethroning Your Inner Critic” series and Founder of The Center For Extraordinary Relationships
