The Holistic English Academy


My Mission

My mission is to help you, professional bilingual women, refine your English skills and redefine your life goals. I help you take your English to the next level (the professional level) by focusing on your specific needs, with emphasis on self- confidence, public speaking and excellent pronunciation, so you feel ready to put your all those projects in practice!


I’m Barbara

I help non–native female speakers to be the best version of themselves in English. I have successfully helped over 2.000 students become competent, more confident English speakers and throughout my years of teaching I have been able to pinpoint exactly what works and what doesn’t for advanced speakers. 

What I Do

The Holistic

English Tribe

Weekly interactive lessons created from interesting topics, such as mindfulness, mindset, confidence, entrepreneurship, determination.

Holistic English Transformation

A self-paced intensive course completely focused on advanced and fluent English Speakers who need to fix their English, rather than learn it.



I know how to keep you engaged and interested in your studies and this is why I’ve created this intensive, yet super effective programme, focused on mindfulness, immersion and motivation.

The light teaching method, with real-life examples and meditation, is the most effective I have ever had in all my English class experiences. I am very grateful for all the learning!
