My story

We don’t always talk about sick doctors, but I was one, a doctor who had to heal herself: I suffered from anorexia for four years, which spiralled into a deep depression and professional burnout. Everyday was a battlefield, I often felt more ill than my patients. It was really a life without much of the living bit: everything in shades of grey, the colours had all run out. One day, I died, my body was moving and breathing, but my heart just didn’t have anything to beat for. That day, someone grabbed my hand; I held on and chose life.

We often talk about a coach who never played, or a trainer who is out of shape, that was me: I was taking care of others without taking the time to care for me. I refused medication–my whole body suffered. A fire burned through my spine and would leave me burning in bed for two hours every morning. I tried everything to get better: I read every book on personal growth I could find, I travelled to India to do yoga, Tantra, Reiki, going so far as repeat a mantra for an hour everyday for a year. Some of it helped, but it didn’t heal me fully.

On the road the to recovery, I finally found the biggest game changer I had ever found: Mindfulness meditation. By it, I began to tap into this magical and prior unknown universe: My inner self. The “present moment” was just a conceptual place, until I started feeling it with all of the cells in my body. It was a term “en vogue”, used with the according lightness. The lightness quickly vanished at the moment when I closed my eyes and felt this conscious presence trickle through my entire body. At that moment I realized, my whole life until that point was unconscious.

I applied myself to observe others, and observe myself. I came to see that most people, like me, had been passing most of their lives without being really conscious and present. They were living in the blessings and pains of the past and the illusive promises of the future. For months then, I meditated, then I meditated, and meditated some more. Two hours a day, all by myself, left to observe without prejudice my breath, my thoughts, sensations, sounds, smells. My new motto became “ Love yourself first; help others, after. ” Taking care of me became my priority, I meditated in the morning, at night, while I ate, cooked, and did sports.

Fast-forward eight months from the moment of mindfulness discovery: I had beaten anorexia. My heart filled with a profound sense of peace, of joy, lasting, authentic and pure. All of this made me resonate with a new and contagious energy. Then and there I knew what I have to do with my life: teach others this technique that transformed my life and contribute to bringing the world to be mindful.

Here, I hope to share, as a person and a doctor, all the little things and technique that I learned that contribute to your wellness and health. I wouldn’t consider myself the average doctor; I am multi-passionate, always travelling, an entrepreneur, I love to dance, read, and meditate. My goal here is to leave you inspired in the art of living passionately, consciously and create a beautiful community of mindful people.


Being multi-passionate means I like to learn, and some of my completed studies are listed below:
