About Growth Development Foundation

Hello. I am Angie Simmons.

Like many of you, I’ve had to face a lot of challenges during my life. Challenges like grief, rejection, work-related stress and overwhelm, all of which left me suffering from anxiety, depression, and a serious lack of self-belief for a long time.

Thankfully, I found a method of personal development that worked for me, which led me on an amazing and extraordinary journey of recovery and self-discovery.


Growth Development Foundation was born when life threw yet another curved ball my way: The death of my beloved teacher and mentor, my mother. Based around the eight daily steps I took to recover from this devastating bereavement, I developed a unique journal and programme of self-discovery, which enabled me to take control of my life once and for all.


Having travelled on my own journey of self-discovery, my aspiration now is to help others on their own journey. I want to inspire you to change your life too, by providing a powerful personal development toolkit called the Margjala Method.


The Margjala Method teaches you the science behind a unique, step-by-step process that shows you how to find and switch on your inner light. It enhances self-awareness and creates new thought processes and  patterns. It equips you with the tools you need to manage your moods on a day-to-day basis, helping you to fight negative feeling like depression, anxiety and brain-fog.


The Margjala Method delivers inspirational and actionable content over a range of subjects and techniques, to help you to become more self-aware and the person you want to be. Every session, whether it’s a one-to-one with me, or undertaken within a group environment, is a memorable and life-enhancing experience.


You are the key to a better future.


The simple fact is you can change your reality by changing yourself.


The Margjala Method will teach you a new mindset, enabling you to change how you interact with the world. It will empower you to build a better life, from the inside out.


If you are ready for your own personal development journey, ready to change your life and become the person you need to be, I can help you to make that change.


So, are you ready to change your life?

“A tree can’t be anything but a tree, a dog can’t be anything but a dog, but you have unlimited potential.”

Working alone can feel very lonely.
The responsibility to get everything done rests with you, and if you already have a job, then trying to launch your own business can be exhausting.


It doesn’t have to be this way.
You want accountability but not micro-managing.
You want support but not smothering.


You have companionship and people you can talk ideas through, but also the peace and dedicated time to allow you to achieve your goals for revenue, business growth and productivity.

Journal – How Am I Feeling Today? 

All over the world, people like you are benefiting from my unique self-help journal. It’s designed to help you control your negative thoughts and concentrate on all the positives in your life.

How Am I Feeling Today?

is an undated year-long, self-help workbook. Based on neuroscientific evidence, it gives you a daily structure to monitor the thoughts, feelings and actions that you often miss or ignore, even though they’re paramount to your health and wellbeing. In addition, it builds time into your day for goal-setting, affirmation, gratitude, reflection and mindfulness. To help you to get the most from your journal, there is also a Facebook Group where you can meet others and share your experiences.

The Margjala Method

As Covid-19 swept through the UK during 2020, I noticed my anxiety levels were going through the roof, even after six years of personal development. I started to worry about how this epidemic would impact others, people who had no idea how to manage their own mental wellbeing. This is why I developed a method of self-management for mental wellbeing based on my own knowledge and experiences.


The Margjala Method is a unique, seven-week mentorship programme for personal development to teach the neuroscience behind a powerful process that enables you to switch on your inner light. It equips you with a toolkit to manage your mental wellbeing, and to combat negative emotions like depression, anxiety, and a feeling of overwhelm. The approach throughout is one of love and understanding, giving you confidence and strength by uniting science and spirituality for maximum personal growth.

Working with Angie with the Margjala method and journal has been an amazing experience for me. When I started the course, my confidence and self doubt was rock bottom, I also had no direction. My biggest take away was finding me again, knowing that I am worthy and am enough to achieve what I want out of life, giving me more clarity and direction.

Very grateful to Angie at Growth Development Foundation for helping me to tap into my true self again after my dad passed away suddenly in the new year. Angie is such a big hearted, caring person it made it so easy to reach out to her during a time I had very much gone within myself. Angie sent me daily positive videos that inspired and uplifted me, starting my day feeling more motivated and feeling stronger mentally and emotionally again.
