Passionate about helping you create the work/life you want, I combine coaching and proven positive psychology and other tools to help you flourish both in your work and in your life.

Hi, I am Nikolaos and I am your Executive and Life Coach. I combine coaching with proven positive psychology and other tools such as meditation and various energy healing modalities to help you flourish at both your work and life.
Our journey together addresses your whole being: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual for holistic and sustainable results. After all, we are souls having a human experience vs bodies having a soul.
You design and create a new life that you love.
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.
You are FREE and fully empowered.
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 change.
You may also need help to figure out what's next in your career and your life.
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.
After 13 years in London, I have been living in New York since 2010. I have a beautiful family and lots of friends that I love. I am very grateful to live both in Manhattan and in East Hampton. I love the country, the beach, the mountains, and nature in general. I meditate first thing in the morning (for the last 14 years and counting!), I have fun with my spiritual practices, I exercise indoors in the winter and outdoors in the summer and I love traveling, movies and shows and deep conversations with friends. The beach is my favorite place in the world and my two life mottos are: ''everything happens for the best'' and ''everything is possible''. My intention is to live truthfully and joyfully and experience life fully awake/consciously, teaching and learning, while sharing love, wisdom, light and joy for everyone's highest and best good.
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. About 10 years ago I started experiencing a series of profound events that helped me transform, really get to know who I AM, clarified my purpose, sharpened my intuition and gave me full clarity as to what my gifts are and how best to be of service to the world. During this time, I realized that my life purpose includes supporting others through coaching and healing energy work.
While working in Finance, I completed my Certified Professional Coaching training program and I started coaching, helping Executives and professionals be successful and productive without sacrificing their health, well-being and happiness. I follow a holistic approach that addresses the whole being at the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels, as this is what leads to deep and sustainable results. Over the years I have studied and still continue to study and practice a number of modalities that support and help me deepen my coaching practice including Positive Psychology, Kabbalah, a Course in Miracles, Reiki, Yoga, Theta Healing, Medical Intuition, Vortex Healing and Hypnosis.
My clients work in a variety of industries and are primarily based in New York, London and Paris. I coach 1-2-1 in-person or over the phone. Intentionally, I work with a limited number of clients based on chemistry and fit.
My heart and soul rejoice when I see my clients progress to their next level and flourish to their full potential.
With love, Nikolaos
