I am a change agent, a multi-dimensional & transformational coach, working with individuals and groups resulting in change, transformation and a core-referenced life.
Living an inspired life and vibrantly has always made sense to me, never following conventional norms or what society or my family had expected of me. In doing so, following a path with a heart has had to live on the edge, learning to trust my inner compass and amassing a stream of modalities in the zone of nourishment, healing, body-mind, and spirit, and all to do with living a liberated life!
I share my life’s calling and expression as a Speaker, Card Reader, Vlogger, Writer, Transformational Life Coach & Educator, using Integrated Bodywork and movement as well as offering you toolkits as your Spiritual Guide – Facilitator of Everyday Alchemist™ & LifeScript Energy Series™. I provide Transformative getaways at retreats in Portugal, UK and in person in London or on Skype for clients further afield.
A retreat and event organiser, Rafah offers consultations and designs the ideal retreat and holiday space and stay.
Founder of Butterfly Women, A Women’s group and e-zine, 2010, which morphed into ‘Sacred Butterfly’ as the readership developed for both women and men. This went underground at the end of 2016 and is due to re-emerge as Sacred Woman’s Way as Rafah has often felt a closer need to guide and hold space for women on their journey.
A bit of backstory:
As a child, I would experience the ‘other’ world frequently and as I grew up was very much drawn to the esoteric. I bought first oracle deck at the age of 16, Sacred Path Cards by Jamie Sands and continued to invest in crystals, books and cards throughout my life.
My early 20’s had me majoring in Interior Design for my degree (my mothers choice of career) as she disapproved a career dancing and the performing arts. I worked as a designer briefly before I shifted my career direction following a sabbatical trip to California for three months before I heard my calling on the plane back to London at the age of 24.
Retraining as a Personal Trainer, – my main body of work for 18+ years I immediately developed from the outset my work as a holistic bodyworker, teacher and wellness coach, connecting the dots instinctively of the body mind and spirit connection.
In my late 20’s, I suffered from onset facial acne, which resulted in me in undergoing inner healing work, with the Chakras, a spiritual technology merged with psychotherapy. Amazed by the results and inner transformation I knew I had hit on a healing modality that was effective in releasing the energetic blocked issues as well as healing the physical symptoms. So impressed and having come across nothing like it in the all the years of various transformational programmes, I undertook the chakra course directly through my teacher and embarked on as an Integrative Life Practice of offering my clients and group work, the combination of body, mind and soul, coaching, classes and transformational programmes.
