Viola grew up in Lebanon where her father's early and sudden death, followed by migration and civil war, prevented a stable childhood upbringing and resulted in her move to Venezuela.
Through hard work and study in Caracas, Viola added Spanish to her knowledge of Arabic, English, and French, completing high school and college through night classes. She went on to become a successful Marketing Manager but, as her ambition was to become a Psychotherapist, she made the decision to become a patient in Psychoanalysis, followed by attending group therapy in Transactional Analysis. Viola also took various courses in meditation, breathwork/rebirthing and Transpersonal Psychotherapy and, in 1993, gave up her marketing career to pursue her dreams of bridging the gap between psychotherapy and business management.
Viola went on to found the Centro Rebirthing de Venezuela, a successful, holistic, breathwork therapy centre with her sister. This was followed by the creation of Edward & Associates Business Consultancy, which focused on bringing Transpersonal Psychotherapy into the world of Human Resources.
During this time, Viola became increasingly involved in numerous, holistic, business consulting processes and women's rights, giving several international lectures and seminars. Her book, La Conciencia del Exito y el Arte de Renacer (Breathing the Rhythm of Success), was published in 1999 and translated into English and Turkish.
In 2003, she and her husband, Michael decided to set up home in Cyprus. Together, they established Kayana, a business focused on personal and organisational development, where Viola developed her role as a relationship coach, holistic psychotherapist and breathworker. She also became a colour and image consultant and continues to be involved in these areas across the personal and corporate sectors.
