In the recent years I've have been mainly working with people who are eager to expand awareness on their own potential to achieve desired personal or professional goals and more satisfying work-life experience.
I like to believe that my main contribution is to help passionate creatives (entrepreneurs, artists, athletes...) to keep being reminded of their own inner power; expanding the vision, developing inner strength and resourcefulness, keeping the creative muscles fit so one can continue innovating, growing, performing more effectively, achieving goals and expanding one’s life in desired direction with less stress and with more satisfaction in life.
This practice will mostly benefit those with growth mindset; visionaries, explorers and creators who are looking for expansion and who keep wanting more of life for the wellbeing of themselves and others.

"I came to Antonia on recommendation, as I had blocks in my understanding of patterns in my life that I wanted to shift. Antonia provides a very special kind of therapy drawn from her significant experience and deep understanding of a number of powerful therapeutic and coaching techniques.
Her intuitive approach enabled her to blends these related practices seamlessly in a process that opened areas that I had never dealt with before. After only one session I felt a deeper understanding of my self that I could access and take further.
Antonia is a wonderful and powerful guide in difficult emotional situations. I strongly believe that one gets out of any therapy only as much as puts in, and one has to open up completely and trust the process and the therapist.
This was not a problem with Antonia, as her warmth and understanding gives for a very safe environment.
She has a unique way of addressing problems and it is deeply affecting. It enables a lasting change and I was able to apply it on other situations in life. In future when I have emotional blocks, I will not hesitate to seek further guidance from Antonia." J. visual artist
"I have been working in London as an IT Professional for many years. Due to my professional role I take clients out to dinner very often and also as a single woman, go out with friends for dinner and drinks several times a week.
Although I am very aware of health and fitness and have made it a priority in my life, I found that I was drinking way too much wine during the week and despite my efforts to limit it, I was having a much harder time then I wanted slowing it down.
I therefore gave a call to Antonia as I had worked with her in various seminars/conferences and found her disposition so welcoming and relaxing, that I knew I could trust her and work with her to find a healing space for my issue. We embarked together in a mix of hypnotherapy and NLP and had several sessions which included visualizations and colours to help me release the constraints I had placed upon myself to be the life of the party at all times, (despite it being at my own expense).
Working with Antonia was very comforting and accepting, she walked me through the process we would take and how this would help. It all made so much sense and was so easy to follow and practice.
She taught me what I can do on my own time to bring the POWER back to me and how to deal with situations that caused me anxiety and stress.
Her own personal methodology includes your own personal story and is tailored to deal with your own outcomes and desires.
I always felt so safe and so loved. I always recommend Antonia to my family and friends for any personal issue they need help in resolving." D., entrepreneur
"My issue is a daily chronic pain one that is nearly 30 years old. I wanted help shifting that and also managing it and the other issues to do with a boom and bust cycle I seem to play out.
It's hard to put into words how Antonia helped me, but some concrete things I've come away with include an ability to look back at what I've done with compassion as opposed to anger or guilt.I tend to beat myself up a lot so this one was really helpful to me.
I also worked with her on issues around my job which was in teaching, and I noticed a big shift after this, primarily around negative ruminations. I had a lot less of these after our sessions, which made a big difference to me and helped me enjoy my work more.
Antonia shared with me many tools that she herself has used both personally and professionally. They were real gems and I found them so useful to bring into my vocabulary, and the more I work with them the more they help me.
Antonia has such a sensitive, supportive and kind manner, yet at the same time not letting you get away with being totally immersed in your own unenlightened stuff. She also brings such a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table, I would recommend everyone to work with her!" J. artist and entrepreneur
