Nella is also an accomplished musician, and has performed professionally in the past. She plays the guitar, the bass, keyboards and drums, and she has written a few tunes.
On a personal level, she has overcome many challenges and adversity in her own life, including childhood, family-of-origin issues. Currently, she lives with chronic pain, has kidney disease, and is on dialysis.

Using a combination of research, interviews, therapeutic models, and her own personal experience, Nella will take you in a comprehensive journey, and through the steps needed to forgive those who have offended you, move past your victim stories, forgive those who are unapologetic, and move on with your life.

This important book gives you the tools you need to achieve self-empowerment and transformation, including mindfulness exercises, action plans, checklists, and it addresses topics like boundaries, expectations, toxic situations, misconceptions, and communication. It also addresses resentment and how it relates to illness.

The Forgiveness Journey is for anyone who is sick and tired of embracing the pain of chronic resentments. The author asserts that, “They need to be ready and understand that forgiveness is a choice for self-healing and personal growth, and has little to do with the offender and the offense. Remember, the road to forgiveness is a journey, and Nella Coiro is here to be your guide.



“This book was very interesting and informative. It helped me a lot on trying to figure out how to let go of the bad things in my life and open up to the better things.“

“The book is spot on. Discovered many things by reading it. Very helpful!”

”Once I began to read it, I couldn’t put it down.”

“The author blends new and refreshing themes to the topic of forgiveness, and gently moves you to a place where you understand that forgiveness is for you, not the person you’re forgiving.”

”Written in an encouraging and compassionate voice.”
