My personal journey

About Me

I was born and raised in Pietermaritzburg and matriculated at (MMSG) Maritzburg Muslim School for Girls. I moved to Stanger and settled down with my husband Mohamed Manjoo, Pharmacist and owner of Arcadia Pharmacy. I embarked on my studies in Education through UNISA soon after, and graduated with a Bachelor of Education degree after having my second child. I have dedicated the last five years to self development programmes and have attended many workshops on this subject. I decided to pursue a career as a Journey Practitioner and Brain Gym Therapist when I had witnessed the profound difference it had made in my life. I am now the mother - of - three beautiful children; manage my own household, run my own private practice and currently furthering my studies in Psychology.

My PASSION is facilitating the healing of kids, teenagers and students. I derive great joy watching a child transform into a beautiful butterfly, unlocking his true potential and turning weaknesses into strengths. I have realised over the years working with children that clearing their emotional issues results in great improvements in their academic success. My MISSION is to make a difference in people’s lives and to inspire and empower them to make better choices, thereby living more fulfilled happy lives.

Being a full time parent of three young kids, people have often asked me how I manage studying and maintaining a home yet still have time to embark on a career. Well, my secret is my heartfelt desire to improve myself and be better than I was yesterday, being the best in everything I do. I feel that there is no end to learning and enriching yourself with beneficial knowledge and view myself as an eternal student. With all the Journey work, Aafiyah healing, Brain Gym and Coaching skills that I acquired over the last six years I was able to manifest the life I wanted for myself.  I feel blessed and tremendously grateful to the Creator and to my amazing husband, Mohamed, for making it possible. I dedicate my sacred service to my beloved daughter Masiha, who inspired me to embark on my own journey of healing and hence pursue my dream career. It is indeed a great honour to be given this opportunity to reach out to people all over the world and from all walks of life.

I decided on the name BARAAQA, because it means to ‘sparkle and shine’. When you commit to your own healing path and inner transformation, your whole life will begin to brighten up and shine.

The DIAMOND symbolises your true essence and authentic self. So often, the essence of who you are gets hidden beneath layers of negativity and emotional shut downs. That shining potential that we once possessed becomes dull and non-existent and you lose yourself in the process.

What was lost cannot be regained; however, it can be rediscovered.

So discover the glistening diamond within you, and let it shine!
