I was born in Greece, the home of olives and grapes. I studied Economics and had a successful career in IT before stumbling across Life Coaching and NLP. Today, I’m an NLP trainer, a Life Coach, a wife, a mother, a world traveller. Nothing gives me more joy than sharing what I’ve learnt, and am still learning, with you. Read more
What is anchoring? It means capturing an amazing feeling and being able to reproduce it any time anywhere.

Being there signified a celebration of an incredible civilization and connecting with our children’s’ heritage. It was also a holiday: family bonding together, feeling relaxed, smiling, getting inspired, laughing, learning, loving. A wonderful intense mix of feelings and we wanted to have it at our fingertips even when getting back home, away from Angkor.
How? By making the moment even more intense: with several tight and warm family hugs! Jumping up and down in the air while making photos, breathing in all the beauty of this mystical place while extending our hands to try and reach the sky. At that moment, our spirit was full of confidence and our heart euphoric! We anchored Angkor!
We went back to the hotel and we tested it. We saw the pictures and screamed a bit more from pleasure and we anchored the feelings again. Then next day, just someone say the word ‘Angkor’ would be enough to have us start running up and down screaming in ecstasy. Just like when we were in Angkor.
Anchoring in NLP terms is all about state management. Being able to retrieve a memory associated with the feelings you need and get these feelings back instantly. NLP provides an easy way to anchor just about any feeling you desire and get you to the ‘desired’ state.
After the session I realised, this was something very powerful. I joined Noble Manhattan, one of the leading Life Coach Institutes in the UK. From that moment on, my life journey has been incredible. Up until then, I had enjoyed a full life; or so I thought. The things I have achieved and am proud of since my studies on Life Coaching have been of a greater significance for me. They are the result of a very clear plan based on which I decided the course of my life. I identified my limiting beliefs, values that had changed through the years and replaced them with new ones. This enabled me to move on to a new period full of greater opportunities. The results I was after manifested themselves with a speed I never thought possible.
