Happy Lives

Peter Hastings

Project, Programme and Portfolio Delivery Management and Direction


Starting to work with a coach can be daunting, not knowing what to expect or if it will indeed provide a benefit. Simone is a fantastic guide through the process, teaching the techniques for improving whatever aspect of life you want to work on. Sometimes it can be challenging to work through and adopt Simone’s “invitations”. Still, he is patient and understanding, working on what is important to you, rather than trying to boilerplate a perfect human being.

I am proud of my accomplishments whilst working with Simone to tweak my beliefs and adjust my behaviour there. My field of vision is more expansive, yet my focus is more defined. I am far calmer in the face of all challenges and have shaken off the shackles of previous negative experiences. This has made me more successful and built a continuously improving work-life balance.

The most significant learning for me has been greater self-awareness, which enables me to course-correct when I may be going down the wrong routes in life. I would recommend Simone to anyone who has a goal in life, whether large or small, professional or personal. Having Simone’s help to work towards that goal is liberating and enlightening.

Senior Software Engineer


Before collaborating with Simone, I faced the challenge of maintaining balance in an ever-demanding professional environment. My journey towards self-improvement, particularly in areas of self-worth and resilience, led me to Simone’s transformative coaching. His approach, rooted in practicality and insight, introduced me to the effectiveness of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and other strategic tools. These techniques profoundly shifted my perspective, empowering me to replace limiting beliefs with positive affirmations and robust mental frameworks.

What set Simone apart was his ability to make complex concepts accessible, providing accountability and tailored guidance that resonated deeply with my professional needs. His techniques, including breathwork and structured evening rituals, have been instrumental in enhancing my control and fulfilment, both personally and professionally.

Simone’s coaching is more than guidance; it’s a strategic partnership that fosters resilience and joy in navigating life’s complexities. I wholeheartedly recommend him to any professional seeking to transform their leadership and personal capabilities into actionable, impactful results.

Flo Parker

Career and Life Coach


Simone is an excellent coach and mentor who made me feel at ease while challenging and encouraging me to explore my mindset beyond my initial assumptions. My sessions with Simone helped me to develop my business and maintain essential self-care and personal time in my schedule. I would thoroughly recommend anyone looking for personal reflection and transformation to work with Simone.

Michalis Georgiou

Chief of Staff to the CTO | Enterprise Agile Coach


I am a sceptical engineer that usually challenges most of the things I hear, including the coaching sessions with Simone. I entered the sessions primarily by curiosity rather than a belief that I would get any benefit.

Through this journey that lasted several months and through his persistence, I managed to gain clarity and a “structure” of how I can approach people and challenges, including the biggest challenge of all… myself.

I would recommend Simone to people struggling with their everyday lives (personal and/or professional). Do not expect miracles or ready-made solutions. Instead, you are the one to figure out the answers and the way forward. The coach will guide you through figuring out the path and towards simplifying things inside and around you.

Simone was my coach for nine months. Through his guidance, I built a better relationship with myself and the people around me. His patience, deep insights and understanding and his effective communication style made our sessions very fruitful. I cannot think of anyone that would not benefit from his coaching. We all have hidden parts of ourselves that we would benefit from exploring to reach our full potential. That was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, and I can’t wait to start my second round with him.

Evi Kaponi

Customer Service & Operations


When I first decided to take a leap of faith in life coaching, I was sceptical about what would happen and whether it would be helpful. Lucky for me, what happened was Simone.

Simone is an approachable, trustful and supporting guide with great communication skills and an excellent ability for processing thoughts, mapping, structuring and adjusting coaching sessions. Going from one thing to another feels very natural, as he magically alternates the discussions according to my needs and always stays tuned. Plus, he is sincerely open to structuring the sessions and discussing the process with me. Simone is fully connected, present and focused, and I deeply value how I am led to these qualities through introspection and mindfulness.

We have primarily worked to discover me, change negative aspects of my life, and find a career that gives me purpose. There’s always more than enough material offered, combined with tools which are very helpful and an excellent way to cope with life. I am impressed by the results on identifying crucial beliefs that hold me back and loved the way he handled those results, offering much support and solutions.

Coaching with Simone is like having a stable, subtle, consistent guidance, a lead that feels safe to follow and undoubtedly makes me believe I am in good hands. It’s spectacular how I can see myself changing dramatically in just a few weeks from our first meeting; I am now more calm, self-aware, positive, grateful, confident, motivated, and conscious.

Given that you are open enough and committed to changing yourself for the better, I cannot imagine anyone more suitable than Simone to guide you to a happier life.

Anne Kuppens

Founder at Nine Coliving & Coworking Tenerife


I have the privilege of having Simone over at my Coliving space every few weeks to host a workshop around personal growth. Since I am always there as a participant, Simone has been my personal coach in a way too, and I am very grateful for that. In a group, Simone feels very grounded and confident. He is clearly very knowledgeable, knows what he wants to share and is great at holding the space when working with a group.

Simone has given me many new insides and ways to improve my relationship with myself, often with small but very impactful exercises that are super easy to implement afterwards. I am looking forward to working together much more!

Simone es un excelente coach, es sumamente profesional y organizado, tiene un método muy práctico en el cual puedes empezar a ver los resultados desde el primer momento. No se queda solamente en las sesiones sino que uno siente que realmente uno tiene un apoyo en el momento en que se necesite. Lo recomiendo totalmente!!! Pude crear una afinidad de forma muy rápida!

Daniela Bucher

Executive Assistant


With Simone as a coach by my side, my life changed by 180 degrees within one year: from a stable employment contract working for an NGO, I resigned from my job to become self-employed. A decision I made guided by my heart and which allows me to follow my dreams: to move to Spain and live in a small sunny place by the sea. And to work remotely in the field of personal development as a digital nomad.

Simone helped me to gain awareness that I’m the creator of my life. I feel empowered, proud and happy about what I’ve achieved in the last year – about my inner journey. Thank you, Simone, for speeding up this transformation!

Lauren Smith

Senior Production Designer


Before I began working with Simone, I was overwhelmed and over-stressed. I was out of touch with myself and what I needed to feel fulfilled. With Simone’s support, I made peace my number one priority. Over 8 months or so, I took responsibility and intentional action to let go of the choices, words, and beliefs that kept me stuck. Today I am experiencing the most peace I’ve ever felt. I highly recommend Simone to anyone ready to face themselves, work hard, and grow out of the darkness.

Nydia López Espinal



Opté por el “coacheo” al sentir, como muchos, la necesidad de “redireccionar mi vida” a mis 47 años. Al iniciar, de la mano de Simone, identifiqué 3 aspectos prioritarios para atender: el laboral, el bienestar emocional y la retribución social.

Ahora que miro atrás, reconozco que era el bienestar emocional lo que necesitaba atender y una vez trabajando esto, fue relativamente sencillo trazar una ruta para atender las inquietudes laborales y de retribución social que sentía. Simone me ha proporcionado las herramientas para cuidar mi mente. Esto me ha llevado a saber reconocer mis emociones y no aplastarlas, ni ignorarlas, sino escucharlas y, de manera consciente, dejar que se alejen sin que me lleven a un estado reaccionario. Entre estas herramientas destaca una rutina de meditación. Las pautas mencionadas en la meditación me han hecho vivir de una manera consciente y libre. La angustia que me “acosaba” hace unos meses ha desaparecido gracias al trabajo que he enfocado en mi persona. Me ha sorprendido descubrir los mecanismos de reacción de nuestra mente: una misma mente que se desdobla en distintas facetas que susurran o envían mensajes que nos llevan a la oscuridad del miedo y la ansiedad. Este acompañamiento no me ha hecho una persona perfecta, y no lo hará, porque solo soy un humano. Pero sí me ha hecho un humano que puede vivir en paz y disfrutar la vida.

Caitlin Jilly

Special Education Teacher


Simone is a wonderful transformative life coach. He is very professional and thoughtful in the process. When I began my journey 8 months ago, I was lost. I did not have much direction regarding my future. After completing the process with Simone, I am happily settled into a job, relationship, and life that aligns with my values.

The coaching process has benefited me in many ways. I am more self-confident, accepting, and emotionally stable. At the beginning of this process, I was lost and a bit broken. But now, after completing the program, I feel like I am ready for anything life throws my way! After completing this process, the biggest strength I have taken away is to be okay with myself. My increased confidence helps my life in many ways and positively impacts those around me.

I would recommend this program to anyone who needs direction in their life: whether that be in their employment, personal relationships, motivation, self-improvement or anything else.

Athina Miliou

Senior Engineering Manager


I approached Simone after needing a change in my career and lacking purpose in life. With his guidance and support, I worked in many aspects of my life. I started loving myself, accepting and hearing myself more. I discovered a more empathetic, kind side of mine. I realized how important it is for me to give. To be open and honest with people and to put it into practice.

As for purpose, I realize I can get it out of many things I choose to do in life. I may have found another career, but now I know I don’t need to stress so much about it. Jobs can come and go, as I also change throughout life.

I would recommend working with Simone to anyone feeling lost, wanting purpose or just loving herself enough to give her this gift.

Valerio Verrea

Founder at Anima della Terra


I did three months of coaching with Simone. I greatly appreciated his care, commitment and balance! It was my first time with a coach, and I really enjoyed how he figured out ways to support me in better focusing on the issues I was sharing, going deep to their roots. As well I really appreciated how he was offering practical tools to deal with them in a fast and effective way. Altogether it has been a very rich and beneficial experience. Some of his tools are becoming an integral part of my life. Thank you!

Guillermo Alvarez de Eulate Recalde

Senior Web Application Developer


When I started my journey with Simone, I was looking for help and guidance because I felt unhappy and could not understand why. Thanks to his guidance, the books and documents he shared with me and some new habits that he suggested I introduce in my life, now I know why I felt like that. The best of this journey for me is that I now have a set of tools and knowledge to analyze myself and take smarter actions to avoid these feelings of the past. Thank you, Simone!

Juan Paullier

Business Development


If you are serious about embarking on an inspiring journey of personal growth, I cannot imagine a better guide than Simone. He will undoubtedly help you realise what’s stopping you from reaching your potential, being yourself, and finding contentment. He’ll offer you the tools for taking action, ask the right questions, give you the encouragement to believe that certain things can actually be better. That you can be better. And that may transform you.

In my case, in just a couple of months, I was able to see things from a different, more healthy perspective. He helped me understand myself in a more genuine way to pursue what I really care about. And crucially, he helped me discover and practice the crucial skill of learning how to live in the present.

Dulce Ma Negrete

Customer Service and Marketing


For me has been really tough to get through some situations that made my head very confused. I started with clear signs of anxiety and really found myself at a point where I couldn’t have a clear sight of where to go or move. Through all the sessions, he has provided me with the tools to use at my own time and pace to find out by myself what to do.

Talking with someone you feel understood by and very emphatic from the very beginning makes the difference in the process. I am sure that Simone’s outstanding patience and wise form to give you the correct sign to where to look at is the key to having such excellent results that made me feel more secure and happy.

Part of my daily routine has been transformed to find the balance in life that I needed. I started to live in the present and work for my future.
I am grateful that a good friend recommended him to me because he has been exactly what I needed.

Eliška Hrušovská

Prevention Coach against Burnout and Social Abuse


Simone is a special kind of coach for sensitive people. I had the chance to join Simone’s coaching support group, where we worked on our fears and goals together. Simone showed his coaching presence and ability to react to our group and individual needs. What I liked about Simone’s guidance was he didn’t let us go deeper into our fears but found solutions for our obstacles. I had a chance to have some emergency sessions with Simone, and how he challenged me with my doubts and excuses and positively forced me not to overthink my problems and limits but to focus on pleasant things about myself. Simone helped me use my strengths for personal and professional growth. Simone is a talented coach. He is an ideal buddy to those who need guidance with compassion and encouragement.

Giovanna Barbierato

Sales Director


After my first chat with Simone, I decided to start my coaching with him. One of the best decisions ever taken. During a 6 months path, Simone mentored me and helped me achieve growth that beneficially affected my personal and professional life. I really appreciated his approach and also his method. He always provided me with relevant material and articles that helped me be anchored and consistent. I feel more resourceful; I acquired a more positive perspective and learnt new healthy habits that are here to stay. I recommend Simone to anyone who wants to be happier and achieve actual results; he is a game-changer!



It all started with inspired action. I was ready to make positive changes in my life, which brought me to join one of Simone’s online workshops. I had no expectations, and to my surprise, he over delivered.

If you are looking for a coach and mentor who is grounded and respectful yet direct and leads by example, then yes, I recommend Simone. He can help you identify your opportunities to grow and help you transform your weaknesses into strengths. He is very receptive to the language and thoughts that are being used. He is responsive and dedicative.

If you put in the work and commitment, you will see impactful changes in many areas of your life. I recommend his coaching.

Evie Bleach-Lawrence

Client Executive


Simone is a fantastic, caring and compassionate coach. He has helped me discover a lot about myself, improve my mindset and make positive changes in my life. My whole perspective has shifted, and I now have the tools to overcome any challenges or negative beliefs.

I highly recommend working with Simone, especially if you are at a crossroads in your life.

Tracy Haven

Senior Financial Analyst


I cannot speak highly enough of Simone. The attention and care he devotes to each session is unmatched by any other professional I have worked with. I am truly grateful to have had the opportunity to work with him and highly recommend him no matter what stage of life you are in.

Nikki Tomney


I am very grateful to have attended several of Simone’s online courses through MeetUp. The workshops have addressed critical issues such as transformation, overcoming fear and shifting mindsets.

Simone creates a relaxed, friendly and safe environment where essential matters can be discussed and reflected upon with like-minded people. Simone offers clear, concise and worthwhile advice, often including his own personal experience.

The interactive workshops provide opportunities to ask questions, discuss and reflect. You also learn different strategies, which can significantly change your mindset. Simone encourages everyone to participate and shows a genuine interest in helping people transform their lives for the better.

I often apply his ideas to my daily life and have found they have helped me have a more positive outlook and motivated me to achieve the best possible life I can.

Victor Garzón Jiménez

Senior Data Manager - Business Intelligence


Simone helped me on building better habits and specially made me realize I wanted to be more self-aware.
I used to have a very harsh and critique self talk that I wanted to soften, and through talking about this with him, I had made some improvements.
I thank Simone for showing me some systems and helped me go through adaptation phases while creating healthier habits. Although a bit difficult to maintain are proving very useful in the long run.
People who are dealing with the unusual changes of the current pandemic, or amid a breakpoint in their lives, or want to grow personally, should try something similar.

Juan Botero

Social Media, Online Marketing Strategist


Simone is always very well composed, organized and professional. His strengths lay in his ability to include his audience in the subject matter and challenge them with concepts and ideas. His personality comes across as genuine and engaging. I would not hesitate to recommend his services to many.

Simone helped me working through understanding my values system, which has been an invaluable experience. He supported me in clarifying what is important in my life not only professionally but also personally. He introduced me to meditation techniques as well as other tools to face daily life challenges. A recommended real-life experience.

Thanks to Simone’s life coaching, I could identify, understand and manage some challenging situations in my life. Of course, I could also achieve some goals that gave me more confidence and allowed me to establish habits to refine my life and the way I feel with myself.
Simone will guide you through your process, always willing to help you and conduct you while you do your part. He also prepares himself to give his best during each session and suggests the best books options to you. Simone is so professional and loves what he does.

El proceso de coach con Simone fue excelente. Gracias a sus él me conocí más a mi misma y empecé a quererme mucho más. Descubrí la meditación y el diario de gratitud, dos cosas que aportan muchísimo a mi vida ahora mismo. Tuve el valor de enfrentar mis miedos, de entablar conversaciones más serias conmigo misma y con mis seres más queridos. Encontré técnicas para buscar trabajo y paciencia para esperar por él. Me sentí capaz de controlar mejor mis emociones, de entenderlas y cambiar la forma en la que reacciono a ellas. Conocí a un coach que me entendió, me apoyó, me guio y me acompañó.

Si estás pensando en empezar tu proceso y lees esto, espero que no lo dudes más y te aventures al coaching con Simone. No te vas a arrepentir.

Simone ha sido un coach extraordinario. Es muy dedicado, se toma el trabajo de conocerte e indaga sobre tus procesos de aprendizaje para ajustar las sesiones y hacerlas más productivas. Cuestiona todo el tiempo y está atento al proceso. Te reta y te motiva, hace seguimiento permanente y está disponible incluso fuera de las sesiones. Presenta buen material teórico y lo logra llevar muy bien a ejemplos prácticos. Se ajusta al ritmo del coachee y ha sido una guía para poder aplicar el mindfulness en varios aspectos de mi vida. Lo recomiendo ampliamente a todo el que quiera hacerse responsable de su felicidad.

Andreas Nikolakakis

Senior Consultant


Simone is a great life coach and mindfulness expert. He is very knowledgeable in his field, which covers a wide context of life-coaching areas and mindfulness. I had the honor to be one of his first clients and he helped me a lot to deal with different types of issues I faced in my everyday life. Through the sessions I had with Simone, I learned a lot about meditation practices, mindfulness and step by step I built a stronger mindset and managed to be more mindful. In addition, though his advice, I managed to re-assess my life and appreciate the now and what I have.

The process of becoming more mindful and happy is not easy; it needs patience, time and dedication but Simone was always there to encourage me and provide me with this professional insight and advice. Apart from his high professionalism, Simone is a very pleasant, peaceful and easygoing person. It is always a pleasure to discuss with him various topics, from travel experiences to deep, abstract topics.

Overall, I would definitely recommend Simone as a life coach. Thank you Simone!

I vantaggi del coaching sono tantissimi è un vero peccato che in Italia questa figura non sia conosciuta. La propria volontà di migliorare è sicuramente una caratteristica fondamentale ma la spinta che può dare l’essere seguiti da Simone fa la differenza nel concretizzare il cambiamento. Ho apprezzato tantissimo il suo approccio capace di mutare in base alla circostanza e al bisogno, passando dall’approfondimento di concetti fino al comprendere stati d’animo e aspetti della vita personale. In ogni occasione il suo punto di vista differente ti offre modalità nuove per affrontare le situazioni e spunti interessanti, innegabile l’ intelligenza di cogliere il punto focale delle situazioni. Ho apprezzato molto il fatto di ricevere dopo ogni sessione una mail con un riassunto di quanto detto e alcuni esercizi per indagare sugli argomenti di mio interesse. Nel suo approccio Simone è capace di dare motivazione senza generare stress. Ha doti innate di per svolgere questa professione oltre alla competenza dovuta alla sua costante formazione. Lo consiglierei a chiunque voglia fare una svolta nella vita!

Alberto Gibillini



I had the chance to work with Simone, with coaching sessions based on personal development and specifically Focus on reaching the objectives set and develop an efficient and reactive mind. It was, and it is a really important experience .. I had the chance to get into a vision, a totally new concept .. We worked together and Simone is an excellent teacher, very prepared and careful to study the needs, and times of the person.

He is very helpful and takes work seriously. He adapts perfectly to the times and needs of the person. Can give excellent practical advice and allows you to investigate with educational material that he readily studied and sized for you. I have had benefits in working life, as in the life of every day, practically immediately. For this reason and for many reasons I recommend Simone as a 100% personal coach .. I am sure you will also benefit from it.

The change must take place from within you, he will be able to accompany you on this journey that necessity of notifications and practical tricks that they are not trivial, but have been studied carefully and tested. I am available for any info / reference you would like to ask me. Thanks Simone looking forward to have our next session!
