The cycle of stress can break with you. Learn how to become a happier, healthier version of yourself!

In the past year, 74% of people have felt so stressed they have been overwhelmed or unable to cope. Living with Chronic Stress and or Anxiety (longer than six weeks), Chronic Fatigue or Long Covid, the effects can become overwhelming.

Life. You’re probably dealing with a lot right now...

There are many options, from counselling to anti-anxiety/ anti-depression prescriptions, but do they address the source of the problem fast enough? And if they do, then what next? Of course, the original ‘problem’ is still the problem. So let’s tackle this together!

From financial worries to sleepless nights. Dealing with day-to-day problems or routines, work, relationships, and life is increasingly stressful. Are you dealing with several stressful situations at once?

From financial worries to sleepless nights…


You are a slave to your negative thoughts. You are experiencing long-term worry and chaos. As a result, you occasionally/ regularly experience anxiety (attacks) and/or a low mood.


Struggling with stress in your relationships? Have you ended up attracting toxic or emotionally unavailable partners OR struggle to hold boundaries with friends or family members.


People pleasing can become a dangerous habit that leaves you stressed. Are you saying yes to avoid conflicts? Do you need to stop putting the needs of everyone else before yours?


Addictions come in many forms, from ditching cigarettes to staying off social media. Perhaps you use these “tools” as comfort and reassurance during stressful times – it’s not a long-term fix.


Are you feeling under pressure with tight deadlines? Do you feel overwhelmed working from home and can’t switch off? Are you looking after a family too. It needs to be addressed.


Stress can lead to long-term problems, e.g. difficulty falling asleep, insomnia and waking early. You may be counting sheep, suffering from nocturnal panic attacks but FAFS can help.

I’ve been a student nurse, coach, masseuse and multi-disciplined holistic practitioner. But now I prefer the term multi-dimensional healer as my therapy combines the best of all my studies!

Throughout my career, I’ve made it my personal goal to help people in their most difficult moments. To me, it’s not just a job, it’s what I was born to do.
