About Ashley

Started under anonymity on January 1st, 2018, Empath Confessions was a hobby with one simple goal - to be of comfort and guidance to anyone who could relate to any of its content.

  While she was still awakening and going through her recovery process, she started this blog as an open journal
- hoping to share all the advice she wished she was able to find when she needed it.
From there, she's used this blog to share her story, journey, and everything she's learned along the way.


  Ashley Tilson is a Holistic Trauma Recovery Specialist, basing all of her methodology and processes on her own personal journey of overcoming childhood trauma. She helps victims of childhood trauma & abuse who are struggling with triggers and the inability to feel safely free and happy in their adult lives to break free from the past and heal their childhood self so they can begin to live the life they think they can only dream about.

  At the age of 27, she hit her rock-bottom - she woke up one morning, looked at herself in mirror, and asked who she was. But more importantly than that, she was downright fed up of not being happy. She longed to have a better life and was absolutely struggling with where to begin.

  After spending an entire year buried in self-help books, going back to therapy to address her repressed childhood trauma, and doing anything & everything under the sun to break free from unhealthy habits and better her life - she became hungry for more... She turned to training in holistic modalities and didn't stop until she came into not one, but two, life-transforming epiphanies. One day, she reflected and suddenly realized that her process made her achieve what she thought was impossible -- she had completely released herself from her past, shed her false beliefs, found her way to nip those nasty negative thoughts & habits in the butt, and was embarking on the life she never thought she could have!

  Through the course of her business so far, she's hit some major milestones and achievements including her personal blog, Empath Confessions, which consistently gets 1000+ readers per month; she was invited to start publishing articles as an Executive Contributor for Brainz Magazine, where she was also awarded the "Top 500 Global" Award in 2021; she is an ongoing mentor and co-facilitator for one of her past teachers; and she is a graduate & award recipient in Ontario's Starter Company Plus program.

  As Ashley likes to say, "If I can do it, you can do it too!" and she takes pride in serving others that are ready to break the cycle and emerge as phoenixes!
