For over 20 years, I have supported hundreds of people like you to:
✓ Deal with life’s challenges by developing an unshakeable core of personal strength
✓ Manage internal and external stressors
✓ Have more fulfilling relationships
✓ Live a life according to your personal values instead of reacting to outside triggers
✓ Achieve lasting well-being in a changing world.
🤔 Spend a lot of time engaging in negative thinking? And then telling yourself that you “should” be positive?
🤔 Struggle with negative emotions and tell yourself that you “should” be grateful, forgiving, kind etc.?
🤔 Get triggered by your close relationships?
🤔 Feel angry when family members criticize you or take you for granted?
🤔 Do you attend a lot of lectures and seminars telling you how to be the perfect mom, woman or spouse then find yourself falling short again and again?
If so, you know that you are not alone, right?
Many of us have been there . . .
Here is how Salma describes her experience . . .
I remember when I moved to North America with three young children and living with my in-laws for the first time. It was a very challenging time.
Everyone around me seemed to have it all together . . .
I remember sharing how scared I was of messing up with a group of women and instead of being validated, I felt judged and looked down upon. This reconfirmed by fears . . . I was the worst person, daughter in law and mother ever!
Plus I had a sneaking suspicion that my marriage was “on the rocks”. My husband and I were definitely NOT on the same page when it came to parenting (or dealing with his family).
Of course, I loved my children and (sometimes) my husband. So why could not I remain calm when they did not listen, when they did not do what they were supposed to? Why did I feel defeated when my husband and I did not appear to be on the same page about important parenting decisions? Why did small things trigger me, and then I react and feel bad about myself?
I felt SO alone. Nobody around me seemed to understand. I was often ashamed of my behaviour with my children.
Here’s the thing though. When I felt bad about myself, I was an even worse person and mother!
Thankfully things started getting better when I started working with you. You helped me focus on things that were within my control.
It has been a journey for sure but I find that I am emotionally and mentally stronger today than I have been for many years. And it started with taking charge of my own internal affairs rather than waiting for things and people to change around me.
What would your life look like if you could develop internal strength to navigate the inevitable challenges of life?
✅ You could quickly recover your emotional balance if you got triggered.
✅ You were loving and compassionate towards yourself and others.
✅ You could feel good about yourself and your family relationships
✅ You could find meaning, purpose and fulfillment in your life.
✅ You could set goals for yourself and are able to achieve them.
✅ You could live up to your intentions and the best version of yourself more consistently?
✅ You could encourage and motivate yourself with kindness and compassion instead of criticism and hatred?
✅ You could love, trust, and accept yourself?

Mental and Emotional Mastery [MEM] Membership
Because life is too short to be miserable!
This membership is for Muslim Women who want to manage their thoughts and emotions so that they can live a life according to what matters to them.
We will work together to…
✨ Transform our perspective and our mindset
Imagine conquering your negative thinking. Knowing how to disengage from unhelpful thoughts. We know that our thoughts create our world. If we change our thinking we change our life.
✨ Calm our internal storms
Learn how to get back to centre after being upset or challenged by a distressing event. Life is too short to spend so much time being triggered and having negative emotions, don’t you think?
✨ Act according to our values.
Would you like to be in charge of your own actions rather than react to other people’s actions, agendas and moods? Imagine conquering your triggers, learning to respond to others in accordance with your values rather than on their behaviour.
✨ Discover what our purpose and mission is, and create a life of meaning
Imagine waking up everyday and knowing why you are on this planet, what you need to do. Imagine waking up with energy and excitement, looking forward to working on your mission and sharing your gifts with the world. Only when we live in alignment with our purpose and our values can we achieve true wellbeing.
✨ Transform our relationship with ourselves and others.
Imagine quieting the negative voices in your head, your self criticism and self doubt. Imagine having unshakeable trust and confidence in yourself, knowing that you are up to the challenges that life throws at you, that you have the courage and resilience to face life head on, that you have mastered the art of bouncing back from adversity and challenge, in fact, you are bouncing back better from challenges and becoming stronger.
In working with hundreds and hundreds of women all around the world, I notice that many of us struggle with the very same issues. I got asked the same questions over and over again and shared the same tools again and again.
Over time, I developed a protocol that worked with women just like you. And then I wanted to share it more women, even those who could not afford to spend time, energy and money on individual therapy.
Here is how the MEM Membership can change your life:
Mental and emotional mastery and wellbeing is a journey, not a destination. And the the further you travel on this journey, the more confident you feel that you can navigate the challenges that life throws at you.
That's why I created the MEM Membership - to help guide you along this journey, so you feel supported and inspired every step of the way.
In working with hundreds of women like yourself, I have learned that the key to being your most radiant and actualized self is to motivate yourself with kindness and keep taking baby steps and be a part of a supportive community.
Every month in the MEM Membership, here is what you will get:
Masterclass on MEM topic
Manage thoughts, emotions and behaviours. Each month, we will dive deeply into one area of your mental and emotional wellbeing.
In the masterclass, we dive into relevant learning, research, practice and inspiration for the month.
Live group coaching and Q&A
Each month, we will have a live group coaching session where we will go deeper into the topic of the month. This is a great opportunity for you to ask questions, share your wins and get targeted support for your challenges.
Heartwork Journalling and creativity
In the MEM membership, we play with purpose!
Creativity and art is such a core component of wellbeing and yet it is an area where many of us have very little experience or practice.
Here we will be playing with doodling, painting and creative journaling to explore our thoughts and emotions and support ourselves
Over the last few months, I have ventured deep into this new area for myself and am SO excited to share this with the MEM Members!
Checking in with your community and supporting each other
A supportive community is an important aspect of learning and practicing anything new and certainly when we are working on our wellbeing.
In the MEM membership, we get to hang out with other awesome like-minded women who are on the same journey. We learn from, get inspired by and support each other through the process.
Plus you get these Bonuses!
The MEM Toolkit of Guided Meditations, visualizations and other practices
What if you spent a few minutes each week focusing on yourself? No distractions, no interruptions. Just allowing yourself to relax and be. This is one of the perks of being a MEM annual member that you get access to a growing wellbeing Tool Kit that you can access when you need.
Each meditation is short enough to fit into your schedule. It is great for meditators at all levels. And each one ties into the theme for that month.
One 20 minute individual coaching call ONLY for the first 20 annual members paid in full.
We get to spend time one on one to get crystal clear on where you might be stuck or how we can support you to move forward.

THANK YOU FOR INCORPORATING SCIENCE INTO YOUR PRESENTATION- OFTEN I FEEL LIKE I AM ALONE IN MY NEGATIVE THINKING, BUT THE FACT THAT EVERYONE FACES THIS ISSUE IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER IS COMFORTING IN A WAY. IT’S HOW COMMITTED WE ARE TO RE-WIRING OUR BRAIN TO REAP THE MOST BENEFITS
The MEM program has been a life changing experience for me. It has helped me be more mindful in so many aspects of my life such as recognizing my values, being aware of my thoughts and emotions, and practicing self compassion. The course gave me tools that I can continue to use as I carry on in my journey to becoming a better person and living with purpose.
After many years of living "life", looking after the family, going out to earn a living to help pay the bills, cooking, cleaning, entertaining, care giving .... I felt... spent. Physically, mentally and emotionally spent. Then, I realized that I didn't remember who I really was -- and worse yet, who I had become. It's a funny place to be in life -- not here and not there... nowhere, actually. It's at this moment, that I felt a yearing to go home, to find myself... to look for the little girl inside me who had been burried deep under the layers of life. I just wanted to throw off all the layers and find her, pull her out, look at her and hold her close to me once again so I could feel whole. It was that sense of wanting to return to myself and chosing to be authentic to who I really was, that made me start searching ... because i was lost. I was lost and didn't know where to begin. Then the "MEM Program" came up and I thought, "Oh my gosh, this is it!". I signed up. And I'm very happy that I did. The MEM program helped me to gently introspect and dig. Sometimes I had to dig deep and it was hard, but it had to be done. I was on a mission. The program was very comprehensive and covered a variety of things, but most importantly, it gave me tools, lots and lots of tools to help myself, where-ever I was in my life.
This course helps you define how you want to show up in life, and what you need to do in order to be true to your values. The content is excellent, relevant and supported by science and experts. It challenges you to become more aware of yourself, kinder to yourself, and be more intentional about living your best. I would highly recommend this course!
When it comes to learn something , I would be the one who would join even if it’s resonating for 1% with me. And self growth and improvement is my passion to work on till my last breath. When I came to know about MEM, through email I decided to join this course. However I was double minded since it was extremely busy time for me and I was not sure if it was a good time for me to start , yet I gave a try and joined. And Now I feel that I did the best thing to take this step. This course is amazing, full of knowledge and instant tips to use right away when you need it. The topics covered in this course are so practical and of day to day use that no one can miss them using. I was loaded with amazing information from the live session videos and practical exercises.I also discovered many aspects regarding Values and self awareness. As I mentioned earlier that it was a busy time for me and I was not able to practically complete the exercises timely however For me even listening to the live sessions was so helpful that whenever I faced a situation , I just applied what I listened, that helped me a lot or I wrote on sticky notes and kept them handy .. I cannot miss saying that the Facilitator Marzia is one of the most practical and knowledgeable , humble person, I love her way of explaining things in a very encouraging way. Like she always encouraged us to take baby steps, also start what you want to do rather than keep thinking about the outcome. Some of her teachings are engraved in me and I apply them often. I Thank you Marzia for introducing such a useful course to us, and highly recommend it, to any one who want to learn and grow about self, deal with life challenges competently, and live a purposeful life.
