Η Μαμά Πάπια
I am Stavrini Christina Catselli, Museologist, certified Life Coach and the founder of Μαμά Πάπια*. My passion is to support parents to recognize, celebrate and motivate themselves so they can have a fulfilling life. To me, a full life is one in which what I do, what I say and the way I behave aligns with my values and further enhances, in doing so, the quality of my life and the lives of those around me.
*"Μαμά Πάπια" means mama duck in Greek and is pronounced mama pápia
Changing the world for the better by supporting parents
Ever since I was a child, I wanted to make the world a better place. When I became a mother for the first time, I realized that when parents feel good, this is transmitted to their environment and especially to their children, the future citizens of the world. Since then, I have had a deep desire to be able someday to find a way to support and empower parents. Ten years later and while I was in search for my next career step, I put Coaching into my life, trained as a Coach and in 2020 I created Μαμά Πάπια, a company offering Life Coaching services for parents.
When parents feel good, this is transmitted to their environment and especially to their children, the future citizens of the world.
By empowering parents, the possibility is given to their children and future adults who grow up in a healthier environment and are more likely to learn to be free, independent and responsible towards themselves, their fellow human beings and the society in which they live. The goal is an effective society that acts not only on what is good for itself but also on what is good for others, for now and for the future.
Professional experience and education
I studied art, graphic design and museology in England and the United States and I worked as a web designer before starting my 12-year career as a Museologist and Museum Educator in museums and cultural institutions in England, Jordan and Greece. I trained as a Coach after undertaking 'Coaching Skills & Tools in Practice' program by Varvara Asimakopoulou, Executive & Team Coach, which is accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF), and in 2020 I founded Μαμά Πάπια.
I am a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and a member of the ICF Greece Chapter.
What is Coaching
Coaching, according to the International Coaching Federation (ICF), is a collaboration, a partnership between the Coach and the Coachee, with the aim of challenging thinking and creativity and motivating the Coachee to grow personally and professionally. To me, Coaching is an interactive process that empowers the individual so that they can bring about the desired changes in their lives. Coaching is the bridge that can take you from "who I am" to "who I want to be".
How I can help
Μαμά Πάπια provides 1-1 coaching sessions to parents who want to achieve their goals, who want to have better and more meaningful relationships, who want to improve their quality of life and feel more fulfilled. Each coaching session lasts one hour and the frequency of sessions can be agreed upon during the first session.
Coaching sessions can be done in person or via video call.
First 60-minute session free of charge
Ι offer a free 60 minute initial session to explain, in detail, what Coaching is and how it can benefit your life while you have time to explain what you would like to achieve. This first session is very helpful as it gives you the opportunity to ask questions and decide if you want to start a coaching partnership with me.
Through our Coaching partnership:
- I support you to gain clarity on the issues that concern you
- I support you to understand what is important to you and what motivates you
- I support you to explore and understand what is holding you back from achieving your goals
- I support you to gain insight into who you are, your strengths, your abilities and your potential
- I help you to define your goals
- I help you to identify action and next steps

Stavrini is a wonderful coach with insightful questioning and delightful presence. It was a great fruitful experience for me as a coachee.
Η Σταυρινή είναι ένας άνθρωπος που σε κερδίζει αμέσως λόγω της θετικής αύρας που εκπέμπει και της χαρισματικής προσωπικότητας που διαθέτει. Μέσα από στοχευμένες και ουσιαστικές ερωτήσεις, η Σταυρινή με βοήθησε να ψάξω μέσα μου και να βρω τι είναι αυτό που επιζητώ για να νιώσω γεμάτη, να ανακαλύψω ποιο είναι το πάθος μου, να βάλω στόχους που να με αντιπροσωπεύουν και ευθυγραμμίζονται με τον δικό μου κώδικα αξιών. Με παρότρυνση και ενθάρρυνση με βοήθησε να βγάλω τα εμπόδια από τη μέση, εμπόδια τα οποία πολλές φορές εμείς οι ίδιοι βάζουμε στον εαυτό μας. Το αποτέλεσμα είναι να αισθάνομαι σήμερα πιο δυνατή και γεμάτη αυτοπεποίθηση, να έχω ξεκαθαρίσει πολλά πράγματα μέσα μου και το κυριότερο να έχω συνειδητοποιήσει πως όταν είμαστε εμείς καλά είναι και οι άνθρωποι που αγαπάμε καλά, γι’ αυτό και η φροντίδα της οικογένειάς μας πρέπει να ξεκινάει από τον εαυτό μας.
I had such a wonderful experience being coached by Stavrini. She brought a gentle approach, built a strong trusting relationship, pushed me when I needed it, and fully celebrated my successes and learnings. She adapted to whatever I brought to the sessions and grounded me through a period of change and opportunity. Thank you so much, it was a beautiful process!
Stavrini is very calm, empathetic and genuinely curious, she makes you feel listened to and establishes a strong sense of trust; She also generates potent questions that allow the coachee to gain new awareness and insights. Stavrini is a very good and effective coach. A professional to return to.
