Hi, I am Niko and I am your Executive and Life Coach. I use a combination of coaching with proven positive psychology and other tools such as meditation, yoga, energy leadership to help you flourish at both your work and life.
I help you believe in your amazing self to co-create what you want in your life and work with love and passion, joy and creativity, fun and lightness, ease and flow, strength and trust.
What does it mean to flourish?
To flourish means to love your life and enjoy a harmony that fully supports you to live in a beautiful, light, effortless flow. (PERMA model of Positive Psychology)
You are productive without sacrificing your well-being, your health or your relationships.
You feel positive emotions such as joy, happiness, love, passion, peace, balance and harmony, alignment, and inspiration.
You are full of energy, focused and in the flow.
You have happy, strong and loving relationships.
You live a purposeful and meaningful life.
You accomplish your dreams big and small at work and life.
You live in abundance.
You smile to life and life smiles back to you.
You feel light, loving, fun and joyful.
You fully believe in yourself and can see and feel how amazing and beautiful you are.
Why you may be looking for me as your coach:
You may have been feeling that although you are successful, something is missing or that your success has come at the expense of your health, well-being, happiness and your relationships and you need help to recalibrate. Life may have become serious and less fun and you are getting burnt out.
You know there is more to life than what you are currently experiencing and you are ready for it. You may also have been working hard but feel currently stuck. You are no longer advancing in your career and seem to have hit a plateau. You want to understand why and how to break the barriers that are keeping you stuck, in a balanced way that works for all areas of your life.
You may also feel drained working in what feels like a toxic work environment and you don't have much energy by the end of the day.
You may also have been feeling that you are treated like a number/machine at work and are looking for a work environment that is not sterile/robotic but truly human.
You may also need help to figure out what's next in your career and your life.
You also may have just graduated from University or your MBA (congratulations!) and you need career direction.
Or you want to move from surviving to thriving. From stress, anxiety and pressure into joy, lightness and fun.
You may also have a dream that you want to manifest and need help in making it happen.
Let me help you design your life, so you can flourish!
I grew up in Athens, Greece, studied Finance and Banking, completed my Master's in Management in London and reached senior positions in top Investment Banking firms (JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Citi) working in London and New York over the last 20 years. During this time, I traveled and worked extensively in most European countries, the US and Asia.
Ever since I was a teenager I asked myself the big questions: Why am I here? What is my purpose? What is the meaning of life? I have been looking for answers in different sources of spiritual wisdom, including the main religions, as well as more esoteric traditions and in Science. Having an abundance of money and success has always been important, but I felt that there had to be more to life. A few years ago I experienced a series of profound experiences that transformed me and helped me grow, elevated my consciousness, sharpened my intuition and gave me full clarity with regards to who I am, what my gifts are, how best to be of service to the world and live on purpose. During this time, I realized that my life purpose involves helping others through coaching.
After completing my Certified Professional Coaching training I started coaching, helping others be successful and productive without sacrificing their health, well-being and happiness. I also trained as a Reiki Master, Kundalini Yoga teacher and Theta Healer, adding a breadth of new tools to my belt.
My clients work in a variety of industries and are primarily based in New York, Chicago, London, Paris and Athens. I coach in-person, 1-2-1 or in groups, over the phone, on Skype, WhatsApp, Viber or FaceTime.
After 13 years in London, I have been living in New York since 2010, near Lincoln Center. I have a beautiful family and lots of friends that I love. I am super grateful to live in Manhattan and I also love the country, the beach, the mountains, and nature in general. I meditate first thing in the morning (for the last 10 years and counting!), I have fun with Kundalini Yoga, I exercise indoors in the winter and outdoors in the summer and I love traveling, movies and shows and conversations with friends. The beach is my favorite place in the world and my two favorite life mottos are: ''everything always happens for the best'' and ''balance is everything'' (ancient greek motto of ''pan metron ariston''). My intention is to live my life in the vibration of unconditional love and my soul rejoices when I see my clients make their dreams come true, connect to their magnificence and beauty and create the lives they want, without limitations.
I absolutely love what I do and my heart rejoices in helping you believe in yourself and your awesome power to create and manifest your ideal work/life. Let me help you move from settling to thriving and flourishing! With love, Niko
