About me

Some times we just settle to what feels safe but it is also compromises our wellbeing, our happiness and our life trajectory to what it could be if you did want more to life and can see a potential. Within the NHS coaching and my private practice, I have successfully helped people transition to a more fulfilling life and . Those individuals that went all in is because they were fully committed to take action and ready to create a change.

I help people creating possibilities and own their freedom to opt for the next chapter with confidence. 

Below you may find the 3 topics I do specialise in, a little bit about me, and what happens during our time together.


Mindset is the attitude you approach life. Now, there's multiple factors that do impact this, some of which are the relationship with yourselfyour behaviours and how you view the world that ultimately create an environment within you that leave an impact on the actions you take


When it comes to transitions, or direction, I have supported my coaching clients with

  • clear future visualisation
  • changing career
  • planning the next 10 years 
  • creating a life they are happy about
  • new to parenting and their identity
  • a high achieving individual transitioning to full-time parent
  • full-time parent transitioning back to work and life
  • returning back to work
  • relocation and creating a new life

In the process of this, I will help you get really clear, become more autonomous and feel confident in yourself and where you're going.

Wellbeing and Internal Energy

An important factor is your day to day energy. When one sticks to what is safe but doesn't really align with their values, one can notice a significant dip in happiness. Happiness provides, calmness, excitement, peace, finding opportunities, wanting to create more - happiness creates an internal energy that drives us to continue progressing in every part of life, from work to family and social life, to physical activity - anything one deems important.

If you feel this has been lost somewhere along the way, I can help you.

With me, you will learn to develop self-awareness, acceptance, build confidence in yourself and your decisions. If you'd want, to find possibilities, and want a change or start taking chances, I am your coach.

What happens during our coaching sessions?

During our coaching, a conversation based approach, we will uncover what's happening within your external world and your internal world. We will see what is working, and what isn't. We get to see the bigger picture in your life, see what matters and what doesn't; help make important decisions either within your personal life or professional life. I won't be giving you advice in the process, but I will help you building on your confidence on knowing what's best for you, and taking control of that. I will see your strengths, I will see your potential; and together we will start seeing result.

My expertise lies in making things happen, actually facilitating the bridge between where you are to where you want to be.

I do this because I am a firm believer that life should be something to be excited about, that in our day to day life we are energised; when we go back home we are keen to talk about our day and driven to do something fulfilling out of our personal time. It is possible to feel excited about your work, about your life after work, the love you feel within yourself, because you are in control. Learn how to be confident in yourself, and in your decisions.

That is why I do what I do, and facilitating through coaching, workshops and training is my way to help bring energy to a work culture or to someone's personal life. We are all worth feeling empowered and bring our essence to the world.

Life is a treasure, and my aim as a coach is to support individuals to see this treasure and flourish it into something amazing. Whilst I am evolving in my journey, I help people thrive with theirs. 

I work with you long term, to create actual change which will last you a lifetime.

Further information


  • "I felt very supported and heard by Cristina, I liked her way of visualising the outcomes of the coaching process. The overall experience was very good. I felt that we were genuinely a very good match. Actually, I was surprised that there are coaches like Cristina out there.... I really liked her approach for different reasons. Maybe because she seems to have a good understanding of psychology and family dynamics."
  • "I've been able to find excitement in work again. I realized the blocks that were stopping me from moving forward on certain actions. I also realized values that were missing from my life- creativity.  I've been able to separate myself from my work after hours with the ritual we created to acknowledge the things that actually matter to me.  I've been putting the actions we design at the end of our sessions into my life. Even if I don't do them though, I still remember them. Like one of them was to remember I am powerful by standing in from of a certain mirror in my bedroom. I don't do that every day but when I am in front of that mirror, that's what I remember. I also went from being frustrated with co-workers and colleagues to being more kind and compassionate towards them."
  • "Cristina has helped me understand the reasons behind my thoughts, self image and find ways how to turn these thoughts into positive ones in order to improve my relationship with myself.  She has helped me identify the values that define me and supported me to introduce pure essence and fulfilment in my life!"
  • "Christina took me on a very powerful journey and I was able to see that I was holding on to some really negative and disabling thoughts. With Christina's help I was able to to leave them behind and move forward with my journey."
  • "I had a transformational journey with Cristina and what made it so effective for me was the level of trust in the space that Cristina beautifully created every time. I was fully heard. Cristina challenged me gently and in the right moments enabling me to see different perspectives that empowered me tremendously. Couldn’t be happier with the outcome! Thank you so much Cristina."

Workshops and Courses Feedback:

'Mindset at Work'  Workshop. Describe the experience in 3 words:

    • "Very positive, fulfilling and an educative experience"
    • "Interactive, engaging and positive"
    • "Refreshing, friendly and positive"
    • "Practical, Thought, Fun"
    • "Helpful for growth"
    • "Professional, very positive and helpful"
  • "In the group there was a nice sharing of experiences which felt judgement free. This helped me open up and consider my mindset and personal habits. The flow diagram & considering how we are enforcing negative & positive thoughts was very useful. Encouraging us to be honest and analyse an actual example of this in our lives was a really good exercise & helped me see how much the 'survival brain' takes over."
  • "Cristina was really helpful and lovely! I recommend her events wholeheartedly and as a newcomer to her coaching I am enthusiastic to hear more. I felt relaxed and welcome to take part during the session and sharing my own experience helped me appreciate the practical application of the ideas she taught us."
  • "Cristina was an engaging and knowledgeable coach who demonstrates to have experience in the field, I will definitely recommend!"

Identity, Mindset and Vision 5 Week Course

  • "It looks to be an excellent course and I am so pleased I opted for it. The course is clearly going to be emotionally hard, but I think very worthwhile and will leave me some useful tools to help both myself and others around me in future.

    Cristina, is extremely good. She puts in real effort to include all students, especially the quieter ones, constantly imparts genuine wisdom well beyond her years, and finds a way to make even a careless comment from a student move the debate usefully onwards without making the commenter feel they have made any kind of mistake. If only my teachers at school had been more like this!

    My fellow students all want to be there and are prepared to put lots in to get lots out.  The course is well run and informative. With the right balance of learning, interaction and exercises.  Really looking forward to next week!"

  • "The coach, Cristina, is very knowledgeable, competent, friendly and approachable. "
  • "The teacher was fantastic! Really pushed us to learn and think. Good exercises used in class. Great course!"
  • "Firstly I would like to say I have travelled from Brighton for this course which has been a 4 hour, sometimes more round trip for me and it has been worth every single second. This course has changed the direction of my life and I’m now about to start a new job which will be my first step into being an interior designer. Something in my wildest dreams I didn’t think would have happen 5 weeks ago when I signed up. Christina who run the course has for me gone above and beyond, to putting on thoughtful and knowledgeable lessons, even pushing us out of our comfort zone. Not only that but midway into the course I had gained the confidence to apply to jobs in the design industry and I was lucky enough to get a interview. Christina took her own time after the session to go through interview questions with me and give me advice for the interview, which I do believe using that advice is the reason I got the job. For that I will be forever thankful and grateful to her and I don’t have enough words to say how fantastic she has been."
