You’re sick, tired and feel like you have no control over your chronic illness.  You feel like no one understands what you’re going through…you feel alone. You have lost a part of you that you loved – that person who enjoyed life and felt joy and free.  

I get you – because I was you once.  

I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME, Fibromyalgia, Thyroid Disorder and Adrenal Fatigue. I felt like my illness owned me.  I couldn’t get out from under it. It took away the real me and sucked away my zest for life and left me feeling hopeless, alone, and with a serious hit to my self esteem, until…I discovered its message.

I can help you to transform your state of health by healing your mind, body and soul.

You are a “whole” person and all parts of you are connected. When one part is affected, so are the others and all of them contribute to your current state of health.

I help you to become aware of what’s blocking your ability to heal and empower you to believe in the possibility and potential of your healing power.  If you don’t believe you can heal yourself then just look at the hundreds of research studies with a significant “placebo” effect. If someone can improve their symptoms dramatically and even heal just by taking a sugar pill that they believe will heal them, then you have the ability to heal yourself too.

I’m here to show you how…because I did it too.

After having a child with special needs and developing illness from all the stress, I went on a journey to understand what it really means to be healthy.

 I changed my diet, took many supplements and did many detox regimens. It wasn’t until I started to work with my chronic negative thoughts and emotions that I started to heal.

Through my study of various coaching disciplines, I learned to read the messages that my body was sending me: to change my thoughts and perceptions, to express my needs, to say no, to be my authentic self, to feel good enough for just being me.  I reprogrammed my thoughts, my emotions, and my body to a new way of being that was way more in line with the real me. I started to live a life full of purpose and meaning….a life of true connection to myself and my soul.

With my extensive training and study with some of the best leaders in mind-body-soul coaching, energy psychology and neuroscience, I can help you to rewire the underlying patterns that are keeping you sick.  I help you change your limiting thoughts, beliefs and emotions to alleviate your body stress and put you into a state of balance and healing. I help you create sustainable change in your mind and your body.  I help you to finally be your authentic self and live the life you want.

Since I was a little girl I loved the song “Imagine” by John Lennon. I believed in a world that could have peace and unity.

I feel it is my mission in life to help create peace in this world, one person at a time, starting with myself. This in turn creates a ripple effect. If I can help you to overcome your challenges and live more from a place of peace and self-love, then I know you will pass that on to others in your life.

As  a mom, wife, coach, entrepreneur, house manager, daughter and friend, I’m a person who is on an evolving journey to understand the meaning of life, happiness and true health.  I have figured out the key ways to heal, and create true peace in my life. My mission is to help you see, feel and become your true potential to heal.

 

I believe in you.  

Now it’s time for you to start believing in yourself.

Testimonials 

 
 

"Afshan is a gifted coach. Let me tell you why I say that. I am a person who has had a strong inner critic all my life. It’s particularly loud right now as I set up my own business and I really needed to find a way to tame it so that I can be productive and focused. Afshan and I did a session where we explored where it was coming from, and she got the “real me” to talk to this other voice inside of me. I had a breakthrough experience where at some point, I came to the realization that my inner critic is like a young, inexperienced, and scared version of myself who is fearful of taking risks. The real me is a person who loves to try new things and expand my knowledge and experience continuously, so you can see why we are at odds. I suddenly had an overwhelming feeling of two leaden doors in my chest burst open and let an intense light flood in. It was something I have never experienced before, and possibly never will again. My mind was blown at this moment. Now I can take that younger version of myself on my adventures with me and can tell her that she will be OK, she has me looking after her and I won’t let anything scary happen to her."

"Coaching with Afshan helped me to achieve my goal step by step. I am really happy that I found her service, and it helped me a lot. I have become brave compared to my old self. I take actions towards my plan instead of worry about all the possible outcomes. Afshan is such an inspiring person who speaks softly, but her words are powerful. It shapes the way I think about things. I like how she understands me so well, even if a lot of the time I don’t understand myself. She can see what people want from their hearts."
