I'm a certified life and career transition coach and mental fitness trainer. I help my clients to clarify their intention, banish their limiting beliefs, and make space for their true potential and a happier life.
Originally from Italy, I’ve spent the last 21 years of my life in London, where I started my career in investment banking working in the front office as a derivatives marketer for Bear Stearns and Bank of America. After becoming a mum of my three kids, I took on the task of developing my family business, Nespoli Group, in the UK market.
Armed with the experiences life taught me, and knowing my strengths include connecting with others and creating 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. I'm also a runner and am very interested in nutrition (I trained at CNM in nutrition for everyday life) and in a healthy lifestyle.

Free initial online session
I offer a free initial online session where we get to know each other, explain what coaching is about, design our partnership and give a taste of a typical session.
After that, if we feel we want to partner up and start our work together, I offer programmes of 6, 8, or 10 1-hour sessions held fortnightly via zoom.

I'd love to hear from you.
My coaching philosophy is “find yourself and find your way.” By clarifying what makes you tick and aligning with your core values and life purpose, I help you rediscover yourself. My coaching is not about trying to change you, but helping you remember who you are! 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. You will learn how you can grow that part of yourself, sustainably.
My program consists of 5 main steps:
- Clarity: who you are (core values, life purpose)
- Vision and goals: what you want
- Design your path: how to make it happen
- Grow your mental strength and banish your internal saboteurs
- 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."
