About Growth Development Foundation

Hello. My name is Angie Simmons.


Like many, I’ve had challenges in life- feeling stressed and overwhelmed, being over-worked, handling rejection, dealing with grief, not feeling like I was enough… The list goes on. These hurdles left me suffering from depression, anxiety and a serious lack of belief in myself. Thankfully, I found a method of personal development that worked for me, which has led me on an amazing and extraordinary path of self recovery and discovery.


The Growth Development Foundation was born when life threw yet another curve ball my way: the death of my beloved teacher and mentor, my mother. I developed a unique journal and a program built around 8 daily steps, based on the steps that I took to recover from bereavement and take control of my life once and for all. My aim is to help inspire others to change their lives too by providing a powerful personal development toolkit called the Margjala Method.


The Margjala Method teaches the science behind a unique, step-by-step process that teaches you to switch on your inner light. It enhances self-awareness and creates new thought patterns. It can also help you to fight depression, anxiety and brain fog by equipping you with the tools you need to manage your moods on a day-to-day basis.

By delivering inspirational and actionable content, every session is a memorable experience, whether it’s one-to-one or in a group.


You are the key to a better future. The simple fact is  you can change your reality, by changing yourself. By learning a new mindset, you can change how you interact with the world and empower yourself to build a better life from the inside out.


So, are you ready to change your life?

How Am I Feeling Today? Journal

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


How Am I Feeling Today? is a year-long, undated, self help workbook based on neuroscientific evidence. It gives you a daily structure to monitor the thoughts, feelings and actions that you often miss, even though they’re paramount to your health and wellbeing. Additionally, it builds time for goal setting, reflecting and mindfulness into your day. There’s also a Facebook page to help you get the most out of it.

The Margjala Method

As Covid-19 swept through the UK, I noticed my anxiety was going through the roof- even after 6 years of inner work. I started to worry about how it would impact people who had no idea how to manage their own mental wellbeing, so I developed a method of self-management based on my own experiences.


The Margjala Method is a unique, 12-week mentorship program that teaches the science behind a powerful process to help people switch on their inner light. It equips you with tools to combat depression, anxiety and overwhelming feelings. It’s delivered with an understanding and loving approach, giving confidence and strength by connecting science and spirituality for maximum personal growth.

Angie is a shining example of how "impossible" really means "I'm possible". She allowed herself the safe space to dream what her future could look like, instilled self- belief through increased confidence and made her dreams a reality by taking action.

The way Angie tells her story, her suggestions on how to use her journal and her insights on how journaling has helped her, make it feel like a personal conversation on how her journal evolved.


The artwork is beautiful and gives permission to let out your creative side.


The monthly page gives pause for thought - what has gone before and what might come next. It really feels like a journal, alive in its own right.
