I'm a transformational life and relationship coach, and a Reiki healer. I’ve lived my life across Italy, India and London; my experiences are reflected in the eclectic mix of cultures and personality traits that define me, and in my multi-passionate nature. I call myself the 'Self Expression Advocate' as I believe that being free to express ourselves with authenticity is the key to unlocking our power, purpose and actualisation as individuals.
I am passionate about helping individuals who hold themselves back master the art of self acceptance, break free from self doubt and develop the courage and confidence to be unapologetically themselves, so they can have the freedom to show up authentically in their life and all their relationships to experience greater emotional wellbeing, inner peace and fulfilment.
If you notice that you get in your own way, that you often doubt yourself, or struggle to accept who you are, feeling less than good enough because of external expectations, insecurity or perfectionism, let’s have a chat. I can help you gain clarity on patterns which don’t serve you, help you feel more in charge over the events in your life and develop a mindset and vision of yourself which support your growth and wellbeing in all areas.
Sessions are purposeful conversations with a desired outcome in mind: through exploratory questions, feedback and reflection, together we begin to identify the thoughts, beliefs or behaviours that hold you back. With awareness comes choice, and choice allows change: you stop acting on autopilot, instead, you become more conscious of how your thoughts, feelings and actions affect you so you can begin to experiment with new ways of being which contribute to your happiness and success.
My approach is person-centred - tailored to your individual needs, explorative and reflective. I offer a safe, non judgmental space where you can feel comfortable unpicking your challenges and be supported in unlocking your resourcefulness, gaining new perspectives and developing fresh approaches to ultimately feel more satisfied and at peace with yourself.

What clients have said about our work together:
"Sulu Fontana is a wonderful space holder; offering deep listening to her clients in a way that lets them lay themselves out in front of themselves, feel witnessed and grow. I recommend her coaching to anyone seeking the courage to face themselves and begin to transform."
"Just want to thank you for being so damn good at your job. I don't know what i would do without your insights."

"When I first started the coaching sessions I was recovering from a year of taking care of my father who had suffered from a stroke and looking to change careers and set up something by myself but unsure which direction to go in. After the sessions, I feel like I have processed many of the emotions related to the sickness of my father, have more awareness on how to look after myself and have clarity on the direction of my career and a very clear plan moving forward. "?
"Like a good fairy, Sulu appeared at an exceptionally challenging time when both my parents were ill and I was trying to set up a venture in a new field. I needed encouragement just to keep putting one foot in front of the other and taking the necessary steps without being attached to the outcomes. Sulu's warm and empathetic presence guided me through this wobbly time and a few months later I have been through a business development course at Oxford University and now have my own website up and running, and an exciting new creative project in my life too. There is nothing like having someone rooting for you and most importantly having faith in your ability to reinvent yourself when you are full of doubts!"
"I would like to highlight the major achievement of our hard work and patience. The hours that we had spent and the energy we have devoted to our work has made a drastic positive change in my life (be it mentally, emotionally or spiritually). It gives me an immense pleasure to inform you that I have not felt numb from the past 3 months. That state of oblivion, indecisiveness, the sense of misery and suffering are getting ceased eventually. Lastly, I believe that I am improving step by step, and I am developing a better relationship with myself. I would like to congratulate you on your achievement :)"

"I found the sessions helpful at a difficult time for me. I felt supported emotionally and practically and found the change in my state from overwhelmed to empowered insightful. The sessions really helped me to find more balance emotionally within a session and helped me to decide on next steps and be motivated to act on them."
