I Want to Connect with Someone
How will this Help me?
When difficult life situations occur, we often feel we are the only one going through them. Until we meet someone who has gone through something similar and suddenly we don’t feel so alone. The ability to share this experience is what Kindarma provides. How someone else got through their difficult time, what worked for them and the things that didn’t go so smoothly is the benefit of connecting,
Research has shown that connecting with peers who have gone through similar experiences contributes to;
- Less Isolation
- More Validation
- Hopefulness & Inspiration
- Greater social connection
- Encouragement and understanding
- Reduction of Stigma and Judgment
- Connection with ‘like-minded’ people
- A safe haven
- Increased motivation
You can connect by using our email system, which is confidential and private. Start a conversation there. If you both feel like you would like to chat over the phone you can do so as well.

What People are Saying about Kindarma
“My family & friends did not understand – how could they? They had no idea what I was going through. Talking with someone who had been through it gave me confidence in what I already know about myself and my abilities. My strength was already there, but it helped when others saw it. I felt a connection that only comes from someone who has lived through a similar experience like this.”
“I wanted to know that it was going to get better – I was looking for some hope and that I wasn’t alone in my pain. When I listened to Michelle tell her story, I understood that my pain was normal, that I’m not crazy and some people have it much worse than I did.”
“It took me so long to say it out loud. Speaking with someone who had gone through abuse helped me get to the next step. I was too exhausted to look for a therapist and even though my family supported me they didn’t understand. Kindarma helped me get to ok, it wasn’t such a big commitment – it was just a conversation – but it helped me know I was still a good person.”
