Life and professional leadership coach - PQ mental trainer

About me


I'm a certified life and professional leadership coach and mental fitness trainer. I help clients clarify their intention, banish limiting beliefs, develop their own leader within, and make space for what they really want in their life. 

Originally from Italy, I’ve spent the last 21 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, I felt that the pre-set train trucks I had followed were gone, I felt stuck and unclear and I knew I had the responsibility to choose and to create my very own new path. 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. Armed with the experiences life taught me, and knowing my strengths include deeply connecting with others and creating warm and safe spaces for growth, I embraced my passion for learning and trained with the Co-active Training Institute (CTI) and Positive Intelligence.

Since then, with kindness and ambition, I help my clients rediscover who they are, clarify what they want, free themselves from their limiting beliefs, make space for their true potential, and 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 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 also very interested in nutrition and healthy lifestyle habits.

£125.00 per session
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 rediscover yourself. This allows you to express your potential and show up authentically 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: 

  1. Clarity: who you are (core values, life purpose) 
  2. Vision and goals: what you want
  3. Design your path: how to make it happen
  4. Grow your mental strength and banish your internal saboteurs
  5. Commit and make it last

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 - Psycotherapist/Entrepreneur
