Love, Strength, & Awareness Course


Hi, I'm Aneela Idnani, co-founder of HabitAware in trichotillomania recovery. I'll be your Peer Coach for this course, guiding you through Love, Strength, & Awareness!

I'll be telling my trichotillomania story during the course of this course, so what I'll share right now is simply this: 

I am committed to your recovery from hair pulling, skin picking and nail biting. 

I believe deeply in the methodology we've created as a way to encourage your focus on the solutions, instead of the problems in our lives. 

I want to support your rise above the chaos in your life by sharing the power of  Love, Strength, & Awareness. 

But I can't do it for you. 

YOU need to commit to yourself today and everyday:

  •  to show up for YOU,
  • to believe in YOU,
  • to trust in YOU.

YOU have the power within you. 

I just want to help you bring it out with Love, Strength, & Awareness.

What is Love, Strength, and Awareness?  

Love, Strength, & Awareness is more than a tagline, it is the HabitAware Methodology for taking back control from unwanted hair pulling, skin picking and nail biting.

This video series is designed for anyone with a Body Focused Repetitive Behavior, regardless of if you have HabitAware Keen or Keen2 (though, these do play an integral role in building your awareness).

In these 10 lessons, I'll walk you through Love, Strength, & Awareness and provides the necessary tools, resources and strategies you need to retrain your brain away from hair pulling, skin picking, and nail biting:

  • Learn why Mindset matters

  • Learn how to implement "Love, Strength, & Awareness" in your daily life

  • Learn how to train Keen/Keen2 to deliver that first step, Awareness!

  • Learn how to choose replacement strategies that work for you.

  • and more!
