About me

Hello, welcome to my profile!

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Stuck? Unhappy? Do you feel you it's time for change? 

Some times we just settle to what feels safe but it is also compromises our wellbeing, our happiness and our life trajectory. I aim to provide a safe, and a non-judgmental humanistic space for you to speak freely. I will provide a space to help you gain more self-awareness as it is our first step to start meeting our own needs, and build a life on that. Together, we get to see the bigger picture for your life. I won't be giving you advice in the process, but I will help you build a self-identity that you are happy about and build a path that suits you best.

I have experience working with: 

  • ADHD
  • Confidence and Self Esteem
  • Anxiety
  • Identity
  • Imposter Syndrome
  • Low Mood
  • Career & Work
  • Relationships (individually)
  • Transitions: New parents, going back to work, promotions, relocating, break-ups
  • Lifestyle

The coaching relationship is really important to me, so I offer a free 30-minute call to help you see if I am the right coach for you.

My role is 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 happy 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 you into making it 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."
