  • The concept psychohairapy was founded by Dr. Afiya Mbilishaka. Why not just reach out to the originator to have the discussion? She has the treatment and research behind the work and is a dynamic interviewee.

  • I’m not sure why the term “Introducing” is a part of the title here. The concept of Psychohairapy has already been introduced years ago by Dr. Afiya Mbilishaka. She’s presented on the topic around the world, conducted extensive research and produced an abundance of scholarship yet nowhere on this website is her name mentioned or given credit. Perhaps the term “introducing” in the title above is akin to Columbus ‘discovering’ America.
