My name is Daniela Russo and I am a life coach in Amsterdam. Over the past years, I have supported hundreds of people to find more clarity in their life and reconnect with themselves, increasing the sense of confidence and trust in their own abilities. I have worked with entrepreneurs, doctors, psychologists, coaches, teachers and people from different backgrounds.

I can help you understand yourself better, recognise the patterns that are blocking you and overcome them. You will learn how to make better choices and achieve a sense of purpose and satisfaction.

The sessions are held in English, Spanish and Italian.


The purpose of life coaching is for you to become more peaceful and happy, to feel more of your good feelings and be more comfortable with the bad ones. Over the course of 3 months you will learn that you are far more in control of your own happiness than you ever thought possible. You will learn to make small changes in the way you feel, think and act and you will come to realize that these small changes can make a huge difference.

A life coach can help when you:

“Daniela is a wonderful coach and came up with great session activities that dove into my problem areas along with very relevant exercises for me to do at home. I feel that she’s helped me with my growth and could not recommend her enough!”
Issa Gruber, Human Resources, Amsterdam.


In order to be happy these 4 pillars have to be in harmony and need to go at the same speed, like the wheels of a car.


Negative thoughts act like internal invisible enemies. They are a set of automatic and habitual mind patterns, each with its own voice, beliefs, and assumptions that work against your best interest. Basically there is an internal war for domination between different parts of your brain. You can learn how to switch from negative thoughts to positive thoughts.


Fear, Sadness, Jealousy, Loneliness, Anger, Joy, Trust, Love… Emotions are the strongest force that move every human being. You can use your emotions to make you stronger or to become vulnerable and live in pain. The choice is yours. Once your mind gets organised, the way you think is the way you feel: your emotions will get organised.


Meditation and Breathing are sources of power, and function like a battery charger. Most of us don’t even think about it. But meditation and the way you breathe can impact your whole body, regulating important functions such as blood pressure and heart rate. Practicing meditation and breath work can have multiple health benefits including mental clarity, focus and weight control.


Mind and body are one system. There is a flow of information between body and mind at different levels. It is common knowledge that stress and emotions can affect the immune system. It’s not a one-way link. Studies have shown that sport can improve mental focus. We can create illness in the body by the way we think, and conversely, can we feel better in our bodies through our mind.


During 3 months we will work on your mind, emotions and energies. We will work on your mind by exposing the unconscious beliefs that are blocking you and how to switch to more positive thoughts. We will find out through various exercises what your core values are and your passions.

We will work on your emotions and energies through guided meditations, breathing exercises and relaxation techniques. We won’t work on your body. However, if you need to improve your physical wellbeing I will help you find exercises and practices especially suited for your situation.

In the introductory session, we will talk about the results you would like to achieve, how you want to feel, and what you want to experience when you get to the place you would like to be.

During the call, I evaluate if my coaching program is what you need or if a different path is more appropriate for you. In case we decide to continue, we will focus on the area(s) of your life that you want to change, creating a plan and defining the next steps for the transformation you desire.

NB: One of the most common misconceptions about life coaching is that it is a kind of therapy. It is not. A life coach doesn’t replace a psychologist. Consider therapy if you experience mental health symptoms that cause distress in your life (i.e., anxiety, depression, trauma, disordered eating). Consider life coaching if you want to challenge yourself or break out of your comfort zone.

Certified Life Coach


This is what happened when I got an epiphany moment and I changed my life totally in line with my core values!

My name is Daniela. I am a Licensed Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming® (NLP) and I am here to help you find back your motivation and happiness.

“Daniela is a wonderful coach, she made me aware of my limiting beliefs, and helped me to change perspective. And all of this in a cozy environment, sitting on a comfi couch and drinking coffee 🙂 Even though I am a therapist too, and I do a lot of inner work, her help was absolutely needed for solving some problems in my private life!”
Marianna Kocsany, Psychologist, Amsterdam


I also offer online coaching. Due to covid-19, online coaching has developed rapidly and people start to feel more comfortable behind their laptop or phone camera. This also means I can coach people living in other cities and countries.

When you choose for online coaching, the sessions will take place through Zoom or Skype. Once you have requested a free introductory call, you will receive a confirmation via email and instructions on how to connect to the online session.

The process and length of the sessions are the same as the face-to-face program.


As a motivation coach I can help you better assess your current situation. In this way you will have a better understanding of how to move forward.

Sometimes it can be difficult to look at your situation objectively. Maybe you need someone who helps you setting clear goals to accomplish something that you haven’t been able to do on your own.

I can help you create an action plan and track your progress, encouraging you along the way.
