About me


I'm a certified leadership coach and mental fitness trainer. If you are consciously (or unconsciously) going through a time of change or if you feel stuck in the mud unable to see a way forward, I can help you find awareness about your ineffective inner beliefs and rediscover and choose more effective, positive, and inspiring perspectives, coherent with your values and life purpose. It's going to be a life-changing growth experience!

Originally from Italy, I’ve spent the last 22 years of my life in London, where I started my career in finance working in the front office as a derivatives marketer in two major investment banks. After becoming a happy and proud mum of my three kids, I took on the task of developing my family business in the UK market. At this point in my life, feeling stuck and unclear, I worked with a coach and, with her support, I could finally choose my way and the choice came from a new perspective: MINE! It was time to LEAD the life I WANTED. I embraced my passion for learning and trained and certified with Co-active Training Institute (CTI), Positive Intelligence ( an advanced program based on neuroscience, positive psychology and performance science) and also with Organization and Relationship System Coaching (ORSC)

Since then, with a winning combination of kindness, warmth, and ambition, I help my clients rediscover who they are, clarify what they really want, free themselves from their limiting beliefs, visualize their true potential, and commit to making it real. Through my work, they can experience more happiness, better performance, and deeper connections, both in their personal and professional life. I’ve worked with leaders from many different sectors, including tech,  finance, legal, energy, and media.

As well as a coach. I'm also a mum of three teenagers, an intrepid traveller, a keen runner, a passionate cook, and an eager learner. I'm very interested in nutrition and healthy lifestyle habits.

£125.00 - £250.00
Free initial online session

Additional information

I offer a free initial online session where we get to know each other, I explain what coaching is about, design our partnership and give a taste of a typical session.

After that, I keep it very simple. If we feel we want to partner up and start our journey together, I offer packages of 6, 8, or 10 1-hour sessions held fortnightly via zoom.  Before we start, I will send an extensive questionnaire to kick-start our coaching in the most fruitful way.

I prefer to invoice as a lump sum upfront, but I'm open to invoice in tranches. 

Of course, everything is open to discussion. Contact me for more information!

I'd love to hear from you.

Further information

My coaching philosophy is “find yourself and find your way.” With my warmth and energy, my purpose is to help people lead the life they want, celebrate it, and get to the end with no regrets! By clarifying what makes you tick and aligning with your core values and life purpose, I help you dial down the power of your limiting beliefs and find more confidence and resilience in every aspect of your life. This allows you to express your potential and show up authentically and fully in your personal and professional life. You will become aware that you can always choose and be responsible for your story.

In my approach, I also use the tools of Positive Intelligence to help you recognize and unmask your limiting beliefs: you will realize that they are just a product of your survival instincts and that there is a more resourceful, calm, creative and innovative part of you. Together, we’ll figure out how you can grow that part of yourself, sustainably.

My program consists of 5 main steps: 

Clarity: who you are and your why (core values, life purpose) 
Vision and goals: what you want
Map for change: discover where you are on the map for change
Banish your internal saboteurs and grow your mental strength
Commit and make it last

As an Organisation and Relationship Systems Coach, I also coach the relationship dimension of our life. "No person is an island" and daily, we are completely immersed within a web of personal and professional relationships that influence us. By creating awareness about the issues we are facing and having the tools to improve clarity, communication, alignment, and positivity, we can facilitate happier and healthier connections in your life. 

What my clients say about me:

“Cristina is an exemplary coach and an inspiration.  Using methodical focus and measurable methodology, she has really helped me re-frame my work-life balance, to grow in confidence, to prioritise and to become a more strategic leader, as well as a calmer mother.  She is intuitive and empathetic, clever and rigorous.  I can’t recommend her and her programme highly enough, and would be happy to talk in person if you want more background.”
BM - Senior Global Media Executive

"Cristina is an excellent coach. She is clever, thoughtful, perceptive and really listens. She is able to see through to the issue you didn’t even know you were grappling with and provides helpful tricks to escape from habits that are preventing progression and growth. Nothing seems too huge or too domestic to tackle with her support. [I love the fact that she is Italian and brings a different cultural perspective too]"  
Sarah M – Senior Civil Servant 

"I was fortunate enough to experience coaching from Cristina during a time of transition in my career. I was feeling stuck and couldn't see a way out of the impasse. She helped to me to reconnect with my resources and use them to steer my way through until I had formulated an outcome that was in line with my values and felt authentic. Cristina is an intelligent, perceptive and warm person and these qualities translate into her effective coaching style."
Loma - Psychotherapist/Entrepreneur

"This has been a truly great experience, I have not done anything like this before and I have learned a lot, thank you for your excellent coaching! I have many new insights and tools that I am already using. Your coaching and lessons learned made me stop procrastinating and just fix the problems (well attempt to anyway). An amazing experience, thank you! "                            Senior Engineer

"Cristina is an AMAZING coach! Looking back on where I came from 6 months ago to how I think/feel/act now. I can comfortably say that she changed my life. There was absolutely no way that I would be able to be here and think the same way if I had not worked with Cristina. Thank you and no doubt we will speak again!"                                                                                                              Lead Engineer

"Cristina is so brilliant. She has a brilliant ability to delve deeper beyond what is being said to really get to the nub of the issue being discussed and in a short time frame too. She's helped me work through two significant life/work events in the time we have been working together. I feel much more resourceful having worked with her. Thank you Cristina"                                                              Senior development consultant
