Our lovely, team

Carmella Sternberg

Founder & Director

Carmella is our fierce, fab Founder and dreamer. After creating an award-winning events company, exhausted and with the added stress of a breakup, Carmella left for Asia in search of peace and healing. Four months later, she found herself transformed by the wealth of experiences and wisdom from her meanderings. Respecting her own boundaries, she learnt how to get the best out of life through inner peace and renewed wellbeing. Carmella resolved to make it her life’s work to help people find the healing therapies that she found to be so beneficial on her journey toward health and happiness.

Annabel James

Co-Founder & Director of Practitioners

Annabel is our warm and radiant Co-Founder and the inspiration behind Carmella’s dream. She exudes light and has an energy and peace that is magnetic. Annabel is a trained Breath of Bliss Breathwork practitioner and has a background in counselling. She has always been passionate about supporting people through times of transformation and bringing together people walking these similar journeys. By walking her own healing journey first, she has found a passion for Breathwork and healing that allows her to best support others in their journeys of transformation.

Jessica Girvan

Operations Manager

Jessica is our resident busy-bee. As our Operations Manager, she loves spreadsheets and all things organisation. After 15 years of stress and anxiety working in Dentistry, Jessica lept into 6 months of soul-searching, where holistic wellness transformed her life. Her wellbeing journey eventually led to Mamma, and she has loved seeing it grow. Jessica learned the importance of putting time back into yourself. Her favourite practices are sound-healing, yoga, and CBT therapy.

Huda Dawas

Partnerships & Retail Manager

Huda is the walking encyclopedia of our Mamma tribe. She is no stranger to wellness, with a corporate background in the fitness, health, and hospitality industries. After facing phases of burnout, Huda sought a business that valued and promoted balance, so she leapt on board with the early stages of Mamma and hasn’t looked back! With a background in sports and fitness, movement is really important in Huda’s holistic wellness journey. Her favourite practices are breathwork, meditation, and flotation tanks.

Kristel Pau

Customer Service Operations Manager

Kristel is our welcoming go-to girl for all things related to client experience. After facing burnout from the hustle and bustle of the hospitality industry, she left for 6 months in search of healing and transformation. She returned with a desire to move into the wellness space and found her way to the Mamma tribe. Kristel onboards our newest practitioners and welcomes them into the Mamma community and she will be continually building on our customers services to better support you, our clients! Her favourite practices are yoga and meditation.

Rose Abellera

Practitioner Coordinator

Rose has been with Mamma from the very beginning, working hard behind the scenes with our founder Carmella Sternberg to kick start Mamma into existence. Rose is the Mamma powerhouse, supporting our practitioners and the team to ensure all of the wonderful practices and our community of practitioners can be shared with the world. She is a smiley giggly ball of energy with a giant heart and an even bigger dog called Coffee! Her favourite practice is meditation.

Our Story

Mamma Wellbeing was founded by Carmella Sternberg and Annabel James in 2018.

There has always been an invisible string connecting Carmella and Annabel. The two met in Thailand and kept crossing paths in their own journeys of healing. Inspired by Annabel’s personal journey of transformation, Carmella dreamed of a business built on friendship, support, and community. The two of them together embody all that Mamma is and has become. Mamma Wellbeing seeks to connect people on personal journeys of healing, revival, or transformation with experienced practitioners in a vast array of holistic healings and therapies to support them along the way. 
In recent months, Mamma has evolved as an idea and a community, experiencing a journey of its own in alignment with the journeys walked by Annabel and Carmella. Rooted in their own experience, Mamma began as a sisterhood, designed to support women in their wellness journeys, but as their journeys continue, so does Mamma’s as it has grown to be a platform of support for everyone. They are excited to see it continue to grow and evolve, guiding others toward a life of greater wellbeing, self-love, and balance amidst the busyness of day-to-day life.

What others say

I absolutely loved my session with a Mamma theta healer. I felt both incredibly safe & exhilarated at the same time! Learning and pulling apart old patterns and habits that do not serve me anymore.

The most beautiful heart opening cacao ceremony, followed by an incredible sound healing, we all had a magical journey as the notes of each instrument weaved around us. The whole experience was quite literally out of this world.
