Meet Shabnam Rakhiba, the unapologetic woman empowering women with chronic pain and illness so they reclaim their space and self-confidence. Shabnam is a chronic illness warrior, having battled pain for more than a decade due to endometriosis and fibromyalgia.

As an empowerment and resilience coach with a background in Psychology and Acceptance & Commitment Coaching, she is now on a mission to support women in awakening the resilience, flexibility and confidence crucial to thriving in today’s unforgiving and hectic world.
