My Story

Hello, I am Elpida and my name means Hope. A storyteller, a dreamer and now a coach, my passion is connecting with people in meaningful ways, empowering them to craft and own their true story. 

Imagine you live the life you want. At your dream place. Imagine doing a job you love. Fully aligned with your personal values.

Imagine you have meaningful, enriching relationships -both in work and life. What and how you communicate has a positive impact – on yourself and those around you. 

Imagine you have someone to truly listen to you. Someone who sees your best-self shining bright and supports you in creating the future you desire. On purpose. Your way. At your pace.

Growth mindset, curiosity and an unquenchable thirst for self-discovery led me to the Co-Active Training Institute and co-active coaching a bit more than two years ago. With over 20 years’ experience working as a corporate communications professional at the telecommunications industry – of which 10 years abroad – now, here I am serving you to unlock your creativity, find your story and give it voice. 

I mainly work with people who are looking for a coach to make them see what possibilities exist for them outside the box they are currently in. With you who choose to go beyond specific goals, on a journey of self-discovery, as unsettling or uneasy as it may be. With you who do not settle within your limitations, who see where you are now as your big chance, even if not sure for what exactly. With you who want to reclaim your «lost» creative soul.

Being an avid words lover, asking questions is my creative playground, while international and media relations has been my formal background. Communication and storytelling are my natural driver; going beyond your story and co-creating what’s next with you is what drives me nowadays.

Storytelling brought me to coaching. Designing and offering tailor-made storytelling workshops fills me with joy; it allows for playfulness and reflection to spark your imagination and inspire you, so as to express who you authentically are, your way.

Currently living in my native Athens, Greece, with my husband, I am a keen traveler, love dark-chocolate and the sea. For me seeking connection is at the core of who we are and what we do. So, are you ready to go together on a journey of self-discovery, embrace and express who you authentically are – both in work and life?
