Hi Flavia, tell us something from you
I was born in Switzerland and raised in Italy. Since then I have come to know the power of holistic health, I have put myself on a self-discovery journey. Since I believed he had to adapt myself to the demands of society, led me start my way to Paris, where I pursued a successful career as a business woman - I led the life of most of the dream. However: Behind the facade of stress and an unhealthy lifestyle took its toll and my general well-being steadily increased from.
I felt disoriented, was constantly anxious and as detached from myself. It took a lot of courage, almost four years of self-therapy and a spark synchronicity until I had managed to get to where I am today. At that time I had no suitable support system, so I created my own. I quit my job to devote my life to the task of helping others to get back on their feet.

That helps me to create completely inside together with my client * individualized action plans.

What do you mean self-care and "practicing" You?
Self-care means EVERYTHING to me. It is not negotiable. I have made it a rule to reserve every day for at least an hour, usually always the same morning before I start the day. I meditate, perform diary, do exercises or do my skin with Dry Brushing and a beautiful oil something good. I make sure that I take care at least once a day to body and mind. So I stay with my determination connected.

Why is you self-care important (or why maybe not)?
After I had suffered a burnout in Paris, I realized that it was self-care that I missed the most -. Time for myself This safe space where one is free to dream, to create and deal with his inner self to join.
Has self-care you helped to achieve certain goals, overcome challenges or to survive bad times?
Absolutely. The decision my to terminate job and to give my life a new direction was definitely an act of resilience and the conformist self-care. I was deprived of a world full of expectations and projections, and finally took the time to follow my true destiny. When I look back now, I see how brave it was to rely on my gut feeling.
