From the Heart and Soul Academy for those struggling with Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRBs), such as hair pulling, skin picking, nail biting, lip picking, etc.


The Heart & Soul Academy is here to help you find relief and recovery.

The classes, events and resources can help you to:

  • Integrate mindfulness techniques into your daily life
  • Identify negative thought patterns and triggers - and change them!
  • Reduce the impulse to pull, pick, bite, etc.
  • Increase your awareness, both inside and outside of the body
  • Handle feelings of anxiety and difficult feelings

All it takes is the desire to change and the commitment to doing the work to transform one’s life.

At the Heart and Soul Academy, our mission is to provide those who suffer from BFRBs with the resources, expertise, and support to live a life free from pulling, picking, biting, etc. Based in Mindfulness Awareness Training, we offer online, interactive classes, events and an Annual Retreat for Adults, Teens, Children, Parents and their loved-ones. We augment our classes and events with tools, strategies, and stress reduction techniques combined with practical living skills that build a road-map for real recovery.
