Help you become unstuck so you can take the steps to experience more freedom and live the life you are meant to live
Empower you with a choice on how you relate to your inner & outer experiences to feel more joy and peace in the present moment
I get it...you've been in recovery for a while but still feel like your inner critic runs the show. Maybe you feel guilty for the things you've done in the past. Or perhaps you worry about being judged. Worse yet, maybe you feel you don't deserve to be happy...
You just want to feel more present and alive - to make peace with that damn committee in your head that's always telling you you're not good enough...You've done the hard work of getting clean and sober. Now you want to be able to experience life fully and feel at peace-no matter what curveballs curveballs life throws at you. You've probably tried various paths to recovery but still are searching for deeper healing...
Something keeps you from feeling like you're fully alive and free - like something's still missing. But you can't put your finger on what that something is! You still feel uncomfortable in your own skin and look for approval and validation from the outside - hoping and praying that this will fulfill your inner longing, though you don't know exactly what you're longing for...
Do You Find Yourself
Living continually in the past or always worrying about the future?
Trying to self-soothe through financial or material gain (i.e. workaholic), excessive exercise, gambling, eating sleeping, sex, etc?
In a constant state of physical distress, pain, or "dis-ease?"
Maybe you escape by keeping busy but end up feeling more exhausted and disconnected at the end of each day...A lot of us believe that if we keep busy constantly, we won't have time to dwell on what brought us into recovery in the first place. In other words, we think keeping busy means we won't have to deal with the loneliness, self-judgment, or pain that exists within. But if we don't stop at some point, we'll never find time for true self-compassion.
Or you've been in 12-step fellowship and completed the steps, but know deep in your gut there's still inner work to do...Running from ourselves is nothing new. Hell, many of us have been doing it our entire lives! But there comes a time at which at which we have to turn and face our pain, and finally deal with how and why it drove us to the point where we needed to enter recovery in the first place...
Perhaps you've tried diet and lifestyle changes that feel good for a while, but then always fall back into the same old patterns that keep you feeling stuck... These changes often make us feel better - for a while - but at some point we realize we can't run away from ourselves by making external changes only. And this may leave us scared or worried, which in turn drags us back into old patterns of feeling unworthy or like we just can't make it work.
At this point, you probably feel like you've been doing everything right, and yet somehow something's still wrong...
It's like you can feel it, smell it, taste it - you sense it's right around the corner, but your inability to find it frustrates the hell out of you!
Maybe You Believe:
You're doomed to always be looking for something more, and to have to quench your inner thirst by chasing external people & things - relationships, money, jobs, power, prestige, respect, etc.
That deep inner peace is only for others, not for you
You're defeated & will suffer this kind of angst for the rest of your life
At the end of the day, all you really want is to feel comfortable in your own skin. To be free to make the kinds of choices and decisions that bring lasting positive change & happiness to your life.
I get it because I've been there, done that. I did my 12-Steps, followed the fellowship program, and yet I didn't immediately experience the deep lasting change I yearned for, and this frustrated me...
I worked out at the gym - hard. I tried over and over again to strengthen my sense of self-worth by building my muscles. At first, I felt invincible, but soon realized my priorities were off. I was still running, trying to fix my physical appearance to avoid dealing with my internal stuff...
I chased all that external stuff - women, jobs, money, power, prestige, respect, you name it. But it wasn't until I realized I was trying to fill a void within through all that's outside of me, when what I really needed was to look inside. Still I was afraid...
But I knew I needed help beyond the 12-step program... I knew deep inside that I needed more - I desperately wanted to experience the kind of transformative healing that would free me to be not only recovered, but truly happy.
"That's Why I Created Healing Beyond Recovery"
"Healing is possible for us all, no matter what our story may be..."
Healing is possible for us all, no matter what our story may be...whether you used to escape through drugs, alcohol, sex, eating, gambling, or whatever, but now find you lose yourself in some other busy-ness to stay distracted, I get it.
But we can't do it alone...I learned this the hard way, for years of struggling to find myself, discover what I was running from, learn what it is I truly wanted from my life. I knew I needed more...
Because I've been there, done that, my mission is to help you cross the bridge from recovery to healing...I know how hard it is. I also learned I couldn't do it on my own. When I sought the help of others experienced with healing beyond recovery, my life began to open up and for the first time ever I began to see myself through new, healthy, eyes. I stopped running and began to accept and love myself...
That's why Healing Beyond Recovery is the missing link you've been looking for to help you experience lasting change. With my assistance and experience, I can help guide you over this bridge and onto the other side to lasting healing and transformation. Trust me, there's nothing better.
If you're anything like me, you're looking to experience a deeper level of healing and live happy & free! Instead of being reliant only on messages and just getting by in between, think about how it would feel to be at peace with yourself and the world around you...
Imagine if you could create a healthy relationship with your inner critic, or those who sit on that judgmental committee in your head...I can help you open up a dialogue to let them know they don't need to run your life...anymore...that you've got it covered and you can take it from here...
What if you can handle all situations in your life with a sense of equanimity & ease? That's what comes from a sense of calm and internal strength based on learning the missing pieces that I can help you put into place as part of your recovery journey...
Imagine you make healthy & sustainable lifestyle choices through diet, exercise, meditation, & coaching that don't fall by the wayside in a few short weeks. Rather, you maintain the long-term benefits my program has to offer and keep not only your body, but your mind and your emotions on an even keel. Our mind and body are connected - science has proven this much to date. So, let's get to work on creating a strong durable bridge between the two!
Together we can do it!

As an experienced Recovery Coach, I promise my clients the following:
I limit my overall number of clients in order to devote my full attention to each individual who chooses to work with me...
I'll walk this path with you to the end if that's what you want, because my life's work is about helping others experience the same kind of true recovery & healing as me...
Schedule your free consult with Healing Beyond Recovery's Mike Govoni today and find the caring connection you need to help bridge the gap between recovery and "real life."
If You're Asking Yourself:
Will this work for me?
Can I do this?
Do I have the time?
All I can say is I was there, too, and asked those same questions. I doubted, procrastinated, and rationalized but finally found the missing piece to real & lasting healing through the one-on-one coaching process...and now my purpose in life is to give back to you the same gifts I received between my recovery and true healing...
So if you've tried other programs & come up short, it's probably because they were generic, cookie-cutter, one-size-fits all...Sometimes these programs work, sometimes they don't. I believe that most of us require more than group meetings and sponsors because individualized recovery coaching has been proven to work better & create long-term results that last...
If you've never tried individualized coaching with someone who takes the time to understand your true needs and who'll develop a personalized approach to recover & healing with you, then now's the time...While it's a big decision to engage in one-on-one work, this doesn't mean you can't also still be part of a recovery group as well. Here you'll get the kind of attention you deserve that fills in the gaps where group programs end...
"This is my passion because I know others can experience the same kind of healing I finally found." My ultimate goal -- no, my heartfelt pledge--is to bring anyone I coach to the point where they're finally recovered, healed, & free. I know it can be done because I've done it. And, no, this doesn't make me perfect, but it does make me committed to helping others experience the same kind of freedom I now have in my life...
Here’s what clients are saying about Mike’s Coaching
"I was definitely skeptical but pain opened me up to looking outside of a 12-step fellowship for support in my recovery. I was 5 years sober at the time and I desperately needed relief.
Before working with Mike I was constantly rushing to stay busy and never felt comfortable in my own skin. I was continually searching through external means trying to find inner peace.
Everyday I suffered from anxiety and racing thoughts. I struggled in relationship and the ability to connect with others.
Since working with Mike I've learned skills to regulate my nervous system to experience less anxiety and find peace in the present moment. Mike taught me the skills to cultivate inner resilience and encouraged me that I already have what I was searching for inside of me. He helped me to make major lifestyle changes across many spectrums including; diet, stress management, self regulation, healthy boundaries, and most importantly cultivating compassion towards myself.
With Mike’s support, today I know I am on the right path and it feels good!"
- Patrick F., Realtor
"I am full of gratitude for Mike in helping me on my journey. When I came to Mike, I had been in recovery for over 20 years and going through a very difficult time. I was suffering with intense anxiety, debilitating depression and fear that things would only get worse.
When Mike was referred to me by my friend, I figured he was yet another practitioner who would fail to help me. I was completely wrong. Mike was unlike any other of my previous practitioners.
He had a gentle, clear way of safely guiding and supporting me in cultivating the awareness I needed for self empowerment. I had always been seeking resolution outside of myself from different practitioners but today I can say I have inner tools and resources to navigate the “good” and “bad” within me.
Today I’m confident that I am on the right path, fully capable of weathering the storms of life. Mike has truly helped me heal my relationship with myself."
"Before I began working with Mike everyday felt like a battle. Even after two years of being in recovery. I suffered from my inner critic that would never seem to quiet down. I struggled with anxiety and depression and feelings of unworthiness which caused me to constantly doubt myself. On top of that, my body was physically sick with Ulcerative Colitis.
Looking back, part of me was scared to commit to doing my deeper work because being miserable for so long felt safer to me. I wasn’t sure if I was ready but something had to change.
Mike helped me to compassionately face and address the underlying root of what was causing me both mental & physical dis-ease — which I knew all along and that was trauma. Once I began the journey to heal from my trauma, my inner critic quieted down and I began to experience more peace. Mike helped me to be more present and regulate my stress response along with changing my diet and helped me to make better life style choices. The cumulative affect of all these changes I believe is what helped me get into remission from Ulcerative Colitis.
If it wasn't for finding Mike and starting this journey of healing I would still be trapped in all the negative unhealthy cycles—but today I am finally free!"
