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 have worked for a period of six years at NMC Exquisite Cookware as a Team leader and Events Planner. I recruited, trained and motivated many consultants during that period. I worked for XS Health as a medical sale representative for the whole KZN region, where I trained staff at various companies on promoting XS health products. I have three years of teaching experience as a qualified Educator, I taught English, Business Studies and Life Orientation.. I am currently the owner of my own private practice since April 2016, called ‘Baraaqa Healing Sanctuary and Learning Centre’. I specialise and work full time with kids, teenagers and women, facilitating individual and group sessions. I have dealt with various emotional issues and addressed many learning barriers using the cutting edge skills and techniques of the Journey, Brain Gym and Life Skills Coaching.

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!
From the very first session I had with Farah, I felt in completely safe hands. With her compassionate and welcoming nature, I automatically felt I could relax, be myself, open and trust her to guide the process. Farah has really helped me on my journey of transformation and I hope to continue to have her support throughout my journey in life. I have regular Skype sessions with her and I have witnessed amazing positive changes happen in my life. I highly recommend Farah as one of the best practitioners I have ever experienced.
Farah is an amazing soul! My very first session with her was a life changing one and I have never looked back since then. I had many negative emotions and past trauma which had hindered my growth. I realised that I lacked all confidence in myself and had a low self esteem. My kids were following in the same pattern and were repeating the negative cycle of my past. All praise to my Creator and with Farah’s help I was able to rediscover myself. She is an incredibly sincere, loving and caring person. With so much patience and passion, she worked gently with me until I was released of all negativity. Sometimes sessions would go on for 3 hours but not once did I find her ever losing patience and love. I finally found my true potential and love the new ‘ME’. Family and friends are also in awe of this amazing transformation.
When I first came to Farah I was very concerned over my daughter, Amahle’s, learning abilities. I was amazed by the quick results I saw after she had a few Journey and Brain Gym sessions. She has improved in her speech and writing. She also progressed very well at school and is more disciplined at home. After witnessing such a remarkable difference in my child, I was drawn towards trying out a session myself. After therapy, I found myself to be a calmer and more peaceful person and I now have a better relationship with my kids. I would definitely encourage parents to take the time to seek help for their kids early. I am glad that I did!
When I first started therapy with Farah, I was suffering from depression and I was in a very dark place in my life. I was going through a painful divorce and lacked self esteem and self worth. With regular sessions I was able to pick myself up and had the courage to face my fears. The journey healing therapies were particularly very empowering and uplifting. It connected me with my inner core and allowed me to be the strong and resilient person that I am now. There were times when I was so low and could not make it for therapy sessions and Farah would come over to my home and do a session, just to support me. I am forever grateful to her for the support and motivation she has given me. I now have my life back and feel happy and confident again. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!
The sessions I had with Farah were amazing. It really put things in my life into perspective for me and helped me make better decisions. I was highly stressed about running two businesses and I took a major step after therapy to close the one. I feel an immense sense of freedom now because I have a few more hours to do the work I really love and enjoy. I have found my passion and feel liberated by it. I would recommend all her therapies to anyone and hope to continue going for more sessions to her in the future.
Farah has helped me tremendously with her journey and coaching sessions over the telephone. I was able to deal with all the unresolved issues from my past which had negatively affected my present state of mind. This unique method of healing gets to the core of your troubles and I faced all my deeply buried issues head on, and finally let go. Farah has also assisted me in setting and attaining my goals for everyday life and career, which has empowered me to juggle work, home and my four kids. I have now found my inner peace and feel grateful to Farah for all she has done to motivate me in achieving my dreams.
