About Angela Miccio-Harris

I'm sure before you look at working with me you would like to know a little more about who I am.

I love what I do, activating, equipping & empowering people who are ready for change and to grow in the area of personal development, achieve their heart's desires as well as their potential in any area of life to live this life in fulfillment, joy, wholeness and freedom. I see clients either in person face to face in Nelson, if they wish on online as I have many clients throughout New Zealand.

I am a New Zealand born, Italian blooded, follower and believer of Jesus Christ. I believe that our emotional health and well-being impact all areas of our life, and addressing this has been my passion for over the last 10 years as I've witnessed and experienced first-hand how mental well-being can affect our lives and those around us.

I am an author and my most recent e-book is The Pyschology of Money. I have written numerous blogs, and presented many seminars and workshops. I mix empathy and candour in my communication and build trusting, long lasting client relationships. I love what I do and I feel privileged to be equipping my clients to live their best life now.


I have strong family values and work background along with decade of writing, presenting and coaching which have combined into wide experience and wisdom. My seminars have covered subjects such as emotional intelligence, life balance, financial management, and money mindsets.  My work experience has been in the banking world managing portfolios of clients as their ‘Money Coach’, guiding people through financial decisions and learning how to manage their money well, and establishing a budgeting service for a non-for-profit organisation in Nelson which I ran for 5 years.

Angela's Personal Journey

I have led a full life beset unexpected challenges events to navigate, and major decisions to make. I know and understand first-hand what it takes to deal with adversity, build a plan and move forward. I have raised two wonderful children to adulthood, and I had a challenging marriage for 27 years. I have navigated through and overcome family health issues and later in 2015 my own journey through breast cancer.

I grew up in Nelson and lived there until 2018. I have traveled to Italy many times staying with family and been blessed to have explored more of my heritage and culture. I also briefly visited briefly many countries. In February 2018 I made a brave and bold move to the Bay of Plenty stepping away from what was familiar and comfortable for me. It was going to be only a year but I unexpectedly met my future husband and best friend Anthony, we lived in Tauranga for a time and February 2021 we relocated to Nelson.

I love the beach, travel and the outdoors. I live a balanced life of continual learning, stretching and growing, with a daily quiet time spent with God. I do my best to bring my faith into everyday life. Joy, wisdom, knowledge, peace and faith in the unknown therefore trusting in God, are things important to me. I love people and love spending time with family and friends. 

My background and journey through life combined with my more formal training, work experience and faith has gifted me with a unique skill-set and position to provide practical, engaged and transformational life coaching sessions. I help those who wish to engage in my services to break free from what is not working, to gain clarity, to know themselves and their potential to achieve their goals to live an empowered, free and passionate life.

Angela Miccio-Harris Life Coach Nelson

Working with Me

I am a "straight up" coach. My sessions are based heavily on listening, understanding and at times my coaching style is intuitive. My aim, is to gather information, build a complete picture of where you are currently at in life, and where you’d like to be. I am able to give you clarity, so we can craft a plan designed specifically for you. When necessary we also include where you have come from - to go to the root of the issues instead of just dealing with the symptoms as to any barriers that maybe showing up. I work closely on building trust and safety in the coaching relationship, ensuring that you’re comfortable, ready and equipped to walk your path.

My desire is to activate, empower and encourage you. Accountability and asking the tough questions at times throughout our sessions are what will empower you to make the changes with the tools given to you, to take the steps towards what you desire a reality. Be ready to be challenged but supported as you work through personal, relationship, professional and/or financial challenges that what may be blocking you achieving what you wish.

My coaching is:

• Fluff-free
• Compassionate and empathetic
• Pragmatic
• A journey in personal discovery
• Full of insights that you can apply quickly
• Intended to increase confidence and realise your potential
• Safe and completely confidential
