Nico De Napoli
Most of us hold conscious and unconscious beliefs about ourselves that can keep us from fulfilling our potential. Coaching can help you identify and let go of those beliefs, as well as increase emotional resilience and gain clarity on how to move forward in life.
Areas I cover include stress/anxiety, low mood, transitions, career direction, health/wellbeing, sexuality, self-confidence and identity.
My approach is holistic - it integrates existential, somatic, cognitive and mindfulness coaching.
The mind-body connection is largely neglected in Western medicine, where stress levels and emotional states are rarely assessed, and is often overlooked in talking therapies, too. Having done somatic work for many years, I tend to incorporate it into my coaching practice.
You can read a short article on what I believe to be the qualities that make a good coach.
I've been running a mind-body practice since 2007, helping individuals improve physical and emotional wellbeing. Previously, I did translation and teaching work. My background in classical music performance, an activity simultaneously cerebral and physical, made me aware of the mind-body connection and the importance of stress management. My core values include empathy, personal development and freedom.

I started working with Nico at a time when I was very unhappy in a relatively low-paid job. Within the span of two months, I found the strength to leave the organisation. I finally moved out of a sector where I had been stuck for seven years and into a new area where I increased my salary by 40%. Nico not only helped me achieve my goal, but also to understand myself better.

Through my coaching sessions with Nico, I have learnt a great deal about which direction to take my life. Talking about my options, hopes and fears has helped me establish what choices I need to make to create a more fulfilling life for myself and those around me. Nico is warm, disarming and easy to talk to. Importantly, he asks the right questions, encouraging me to dive deeper into my own mind, to seek answers for myself.

Nico has helped me identify the key problems that were holding me back in a number of areas, including emotional patterns that interfered with my ability to respond appropriately to work and personal circumstances, as well as planning weaknesses that prevented me from focusing my efforts towards those objectives that were most likely to bring personal satisfaction and effective outcomes. He is an excellent listener, with the ability to steer a conversation with probing questions. I also felt that he cared and that he really wanted to understand what my personal story was.
