Hi! I'm Marisa,
I was born and raised in Singapore but now live in Zurich, Switzerland with my husband and kids.
In 2015, I graduated from my health coaching training at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. I was exposed to many dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods.
In 2016, I gave birth to my first child. I was thrown into motherhood with no family support. I was so overwhelmed in my new role and I cried a lot during the first year of motherhood. I was a mess!
Living overseas without family support and having to care for my kids full-time has taught me many things about myself, my mother and most of all, being a woman. I recognised that when I do not put myself and my needs first, I get emotionally negative, and my family suffers. I get irritated easily and I lash out on my husband and kids.
So I started meditating regularly, together with yoga and being outdoors, I find myself happier and more balanced to show up for my family and friends.
My focus is to help burnt-out mothers become aware of their emotions and the importance of self-care. As your holistic health coach, I will help you create a completely personalised "roadmap" to better mind, body and soul because everything is connected.
Your needs matter too, mama x
