About RQ

RQ is the stepping stone to increasing awareness, mindfulness and starting to understand how our thoughts influence everything. Understanding the interplay between thoughts, emotions, behaviours and actions with the backdrop of our personal history, genetics and environment can clear the path to reduce suffering. Then neuroscience will show you what your are capable of, why you feel stuck and how distorted thinking holds us back.

“Your life is as good as your mindset.”

Hey, I'm Safia!


Developed by Dr Safia Debar, RQ was inspired by the concept ReQuiescence, as true wellness is often overlooked in the medical model of care.

We deliver this through our courses, workshops and wellness retreats.

Our aim is to empower, inspire and equip our clients with the tools, framework, knowledge and strategies to optimise all facets of their wellbeing to promote longevity, happiness and fulfilment.

The end result?

Embarking on a journey of growth, self awareness and true living of life. This in turn will promote physical and psychological wellbeing.


What We Offer


Our courses and workshops are based on the Harvard Stress Management and Resiliency Training courses developed by the Benson-Henry Institute at Massachusetts general and Harvard medical school. These programs deliver evidence based research around various aspects of the neuroscience of stress. 



Talks and workshops run by RQ as well as in collaboration with others. Our monthly events cover medicine, neuroscience, neuroplasticity, psychology and wellness. Topics include: mindset, antidepressants, beliefs, relationships, fertility, how to get unstuck, regaining your power and more.



RQ retreats is a unique concept developed by Dr Safia Debar and her expert team. We combine nutrition, yoga, fitness, psychology and life coaching to provide bespoke wellness packages set in idyllic locations. You will have access to a doctor, psychologist, and yoga/fitness instructor.


Our vision is your  freedom... 

Freedom from limiting beliefs, distorted thinking and our own imposed suffering. So, whatever your personal challenges, our intention is to help bring about a sense of peace, contentment and clarity. Our courses and retreats are designed to unleash potential. We aim to help cultivate the ingredients to create moments of flow and insight. RQ has helped participants with difficult family dynamics, anxiety, depression, work struggles, addictive behaviours, sleep, establishing a wellness practice, sadness, overwhelm and weight issues.
