About Cema Santos
I am Cema Santos, therapist, mentor, trainer, and international master coach. I am an immigrant and, like many other immigrants, I have gone through the emotional migration rollercoaster so many times in my life. I am a third generation of migrants (yes, my grandparents and my parents were migrants in different eras).
Throughout my entire life, I have migrated both internally and externally and most of time bringing along just one suitcase. I am now living in Perth, Australia which I call my paradise. I’ve been a very active community member, and I have been involved in several ethnic group activities. I am also a co-founder of the Brazilian Association in Western Australia.
The experiences of living in so many different places plus my work experience researching occupational health in immigrants in Australia, allied to mentorship to international postgraduate students, and of course my own personal history where I went through very dark moments (suffering from depression, shame, guilty, fear, homesick) brought me to be who I am now.
Through my experiences, I’ve developed a special interest in the important role our minds play in our life experiences, leading us to behave similarly when we experience events in different circumstances without noticing. This passion for a conscious mind and a healthy life brought me to the work I love most – helping people to overcome their obstacles to create the life they want, master their high desires and achieve their goals easily and effortlessly.
For these reasons, I’ve developed the Keep Moving Forward - Emotional Support for Immigrants Program to support other immigrants, just like myself, to be emotionally strong wherever they are in the world.
Cultivating health, resilience, success, and happiness through emotional and behavioural education!
