Understand What Sets “Feel Better” Apart

How Feel Better Works

Learn the missing link to cultivating self-awareness and why we struggle to be kind to ourselves.


Step 1


Acknowledge yourself. Be intentional and deliberate about recognizing your character strengths, aptitudes & abilities.

Awareness V2

Step 2


Using the foundation of acknowledging how far you have come, foster curiosity through emotional pattern recognition.

Step 3


Resist the urge to suppress, deny and/or blame someone else for how you are feeling. Accepting your emotions allows change to occur.

Step 4


Understand how to use the clues that emotions leave us – ie. a sensation, an indication towards what is significant to us – to ultimately soften them.

Dr. Shahana has streamlined the “Feel Better” approach to make it clear, and reliable to implement into your daily life. With the premise that “we all deserve to feel better’,  this method focuses on improving one’s emotional capacity  in order to lead a richer, more robust life.

We were fortunate to have Dr. Shahana as a keynote speaker at our event, Debit Credit Breathe. Her presentation was incredibly insightful for our audience of accountants and bookkeepers. Dr. Shahana is a master at blending her personal story with her professional background. In other words, she also practices what she preaches. As a doctor and mother, her approach is relatable, practical, and digestible. She was able to share information that gave us a deeper understanding of how to better manage our own mental wellbeing at work and at home. We appreciate her for generously dedicating her time to enlighten and inspire us. We look forward to the possibility of collaborating with her again in the future. Thank you Dr. Shahana!

I had the pleasure of hiring Dr. Shahana on multiple events for a handful of clients from different backgrounds and was blown away by her ability to customize and tailor her keynote for each audience. Feedback from our attendees was overwhelmingly positive including a few requests to bring her back for a longer session. Her organization, responsiveness and positive attitude throughout the working experience from booking, to audio visual requirements to arriving on-site for sound check was appreciated as it ensured things flowed smoothly the day-of. I look forward to the opportunity to work with her again in the near future.

We really enjoyed having Dr. Alibhai come out to speak with our agents at our annual office meeting on Health and Wellness. She is very passionate about Health and Wellness and cares about what she does. This was very apparent not only in her speech but in all the preparation she did before our meeting. She pointed out an issue we did not realize existed, which has allowed us to identify and correct issues in some problem areas. We have started to impletment items to help people get the tools and resources they need to help them change their mindset and which will allow them to grow and focus more on their daily tasks. Dr. Alibhai has been a great resource and has been a huge help in assisting us with locating the information, tools and resources required for our agents. She is amazing! If you are looking to book a speaker for your offices I would highly recommend Dr. Alibhai. You will not be disappointed.

I found the presentation from Dr. Shahana very informative. I appreciated her personal story which helped me relate to the topic of mental wellness. The quote, ‘Your brain is not designed to make you happy - you are’ made sense to me and gave me a sense of control. I would definitely attend more presentations by Dr. Shahana - I felt there was so much more to learn from her.
