ABOUT ME

My name is Sebastián Fernández. I was born in Argentina, where, besides living a very happy life, I studied psychology while playing first-division basketball for eight years. Soon after graduating, I packed by bags for Barcelona and fell in love twice: first, with the city and second, with the woman who would become my life companion. We came from two very different places – Iceland and Argentina – and while trying to better understand the rich diversity that brought us together, we welcomed three sons. The kids grew up and so did I. The years flew by before I knew it, a time that was amazing and intense in equal measures.

While in Barcelona, I expanded my academic qualifications, earning master’s degrees in Sports Psychology and later on, in Coaching and Leadership. At the same time, I made professional inroads to eventually consolidate what today are my two areas of specialization: executive coaching and sports psychology.

I often tell my clients that the best time for important life changes is when they feel satisfied with their current reality, when change doesn’t represent an escape from something or someone. At the end of 2016, after 17 years in Europe, I had another opportunity to follow this principle firsthand when I decided to move with my family to New York. And we made the right decision…

MindToFlow is the culmination of my years of experience. From my home base in New York, I offer my services to all corners of the globe as an independent consultant-coach for executives and organizations and as sports psychologist for athletes and athletic coaches.
