I grew up in the Swiss mountains, I have been educated at a public school and I have done an apprenticeship in a big hotel. At the age of 20 years I have travelled around and explored the beauty out there on earth for a year. Coming home, diving into career and keeping myself busy all the time has overwhelmed me and I experienced how it truly feels to be burnt out. So I needed time and space to recover and allow myself to do so. That is when my life has changed its direction. Standing at a crossroad and letting go of everything - restarting the project called ‚life‘.
I have been in therapy, I have changed my lifestyle (my daily rhythm, work-life balance, nutrition, relationships, movement practice) and I said YES to myself and
a healthy life - a balanced body, mind and soul.
I have decided to get educated in holistic nutrition (due to personal challenges in my relationship with food), health massage and I decided to work as a freelancer and part-time employee. Once I have started connecting with the holistic knowledge of health I knew that I will continue to dive deeper, learn and grow in that field.
There is no step back.
As I started to understand the holistic approach I knew that it was time to embody the knowledge I have gained so far and I studied movement pedagogy, which has truly transformed my journey on a deeper level.
All my senses started to awaken and being sensitive again. I am now able to express from within in an authentic way and understand how much healing power in
movement itself lies.
I suddenly experienced and embodied joy on a new level and I learned what tools are actually always available to connect with my inner power - may it be nature, movement or any other learned technique. In the field of nutrition I heard the calling to deepen my knowledge in the psychology of eating - so I did and I‘m being trained to be a ‚mind body eating coach‘.
It has been an intense and deep journey so far with many different challenges and great experiences and after 10 years of dedication to personal growth I feel ready to share my knowledge and my experiences with others.
How others have described me in a few words?
‘Mel has a quality of a ‚mama bear‘. She knows where to find the sweetness in life and she knows what it means to make someone feel welcome and loved.‘
(By the way - I love honey and I truly have a connection to the bear)
