We enhance the pseudo-fermion functional-renormalisation-group (PFFRG) method for the investigation of highly frustrated quantum spin systems in two significant ways. On one hand, we generalise the method towards off-diagonal Dzyaloshinsky-Moriya (DM) interactions and single-ion anisotropies. On the other hand, we develop a self-consistent Fock-like mean-field technique which is based on vertex functions from a PFFRG analysis and calculates effective free spinon models for the considered systems at low energies.
