(TULSA, Okla.) “Breathe in. Hold. Breathe out.” With mental health issues being a frontrunner of American affliction, a therapist in Oklahoma has come up with an innovative tool to manage them at the source. After spending years as a psychotherapist, Alexie Foster opted for the entrepreneurial route, launching her digital-based company Healing, Actually in 2019. Foster said she believes to actually heal (hence the name), people must understand the science of what causes them to feel how they feel and how those emotions physically affect the rest of their body. “There are studies that show this,” Foster said. “That certain aspects of talk therapy can get you actually stuck in a loop. Stuck in a rut. And it doesn’t actually heal the thing that needs to be healed.” “I truly believe that people have power over how they approach life. How they show up in the world.” While some companies may offer online video help with fitness or cooking, Foster is taking it a step further by offering full-on counseling sessions to help people cope with their emotions whenever they need it. Enter, Comfort and Calm Method. “Continue to breath this way, and think about releasing all the stresses you’ve been worrying about.” Foster told VNN people can use this new digital program when you are feeling overwhelmed to return to a place of calm in a matter of minutes. And once you find your calm, Foster said, getting to know yourself is the best way to avoid toxic cycles regarding any type of relationship. “You can spend a lot of time researching and reading up on the red flags of this, the red flags of that, or you can spend time getting to know yourself and getting to know your gut, your intuition, and paying attention to that because that is gonna tell you when a person is not the right person for you,” Foster said. However, she is adamant to point out that she does not believe people themselves are actually toxic. “I truly believe that people at their core are good and they are doing the best they can with what they have,” Foster said. “They may have just picked up some bad habits along the way or they may have developed survival skills.” Foster said Comfort and Calm Method is valuable because therapists cannot be available to clients every hour of the day. The new 12-video series is expected to launch in mid-February. Valued at $517, the offering is also expected to grow. Once launched, clients will be able to access it all for a one-time payment of only $37. You can begin your healing at or visit their Facebook and Instagram page (@healingactually).
