Welcome to my Life & Business Coaching in Perth Website

My name is Antonina Bivona. I am a Life and Business Coach with professional certifications and a career of over forty years, in industry and university.

During my long career I have helped hundreds of people to bring change in their career, grow their business, start a new one relationship or heal an old one. And I consider the format of Life coaching the most effective way to bring about the changes you want, in all areas of your private and work life.

  • Are you wanting to develop your business, or create a new niche?
  • Do you feel stressed, pushed for time, and yearning for more meaning in your work and relationships?
  • Do you wish for some one to listen to you with respect and work with you on a new direction, a new career, or a new relationship?
  • Do you want your efforts to yield superior results?

Then Life and Business Coaching with me will give you the support necessary to bring the changes you want in all areas of your life and add competence and strategies to make this happen in an ecological, healthy, and easy way.

Life Coaching: Business, Professional and Personal Relationships

I notice, in my practice, that more and more people are wanting to pursue their life purpose, with unprecedented commitment, especially in the second half of their lives, when they often find themselves faced with major changes, such as a change of career, or relationship arrangements, separation from children, retirement etc. etc.
What they want is reflection time and further doable strategies to make the changes work for them. And this my coaching can provide for them.
Thank you Nina

Why Antonina Bivona

I am committed to supporting you in achieving excellence in your life by bringing your values and your actions into alignment and getting the results you desire, in a do-able, elegant way. My Life and Business Coaching, as well as my courses are guided by this wish, and :inspired by the following thoughts: Are you wanting excellence in your life?

“Excellence is not an event,….it is a habit” Aristotle

“An unexamined life is not worth living.” Socrates

“My Actions Create My Life!” Antonina Bivona

Why Neuro-Linguistic-Programming (NLP)? What is NLP?

I love learning and sharing my knowledge and experience with people who are willing to welcome excellent results in all spheres of their life.
NLP is at the cutting edge of learning/teaching technology.
With its emphasis on getting results through appropriate behaviours NLP is, in my experience, the very best methodology available for using our brains purposefully and more consciously in order to increase our ability to achieve superior results, in all that we do. More about NLP

Whether Life, Business, Executive, or Professional, Coaching, is about you becoming clear on what you want, finding ways of achieving your desired outcomes, and your dreams, changing the behaviours that have limited you in the past, and developing strategies to get you where you want to be.

To align your values with your every day actions is the most powerful way to manifest excellence in your life:

Here are some successful stories from my clients More Testimonials

A Letter from a valued client

One of my many valued clients, Amelia, suffered two life threatening accidents with her husband and later her daughter. I will let Amelia explain how my life coaching helped her achieve exciting results both with her family and for herself.

Dear Nina,

I would like to take this time to acknowledge all that I have learned from your courses and how valuable they have become to me in my everyday life.

As you are aware I have had 2 major life incidents happen in the last 2 years, one being my husband having a motor bike accident where he received head injuries leaving him with part brain damage effecting his personality (and moods) memory and emotions. Your support and help in teaching me new ways to communicate with him have been invaluable and has opened me up to being aware of how I can effectively communicate to all that come into my life – again the Meta-Model has provided me with a powerful resource that I can always at anytime reach for.

My second major life incident was one year later when my daughter was a passenger in a serious car accident and sustained life threatening injuries. Again your valuable support and knowledge in the giving and teaching of the required skills for me to be of valuable assistance to my daughter’s recovery both physical yet more importantly her mental welfare in getting through her ordeal.

I am really happy to inform you that since she has been seeing you privately on a one to one session, (It’s been 4 now) her anger has subsided and she has a calmness about her, her communication with me has improved and she is far more patient and actually listens to what I have to say and thinks before replying and what she has to say is quite profound. Our relationship has improved so much, and she does not see herself as the victim anymore.

With love and gratitude,
