Horticultural Therapy in Singapore? Learn More About This Mental Health Advocate’s Unique Wellness Journey

From therapy to wellness

GET WELL SOON is a three-episode series that uncovers unique and extraordinary wellness spaces and experiences in Singapore.

“Mental wellness is important because what the mind experiences, the body follows,” remarked Faz Gaffa-Marsh. Faz founded My Safe Sphere following the first anniversary of her father’s passing as she wanted to build an inclusive community that’ll help end the stigma surrounding mental health. Having worked at a crisis hotline for two years as well as experienced firsthand the pain of losing a loved one, she’s no stranger to lending her ear to those in need. However, beyond that, she’s listening to her needs too by participating in wholesome wellness experiences that speak to her heart.
