Welcome to Core Essence Optimal

We are a group of trainers and coaches who have one mission - to assist with raising consciousness in

various aspects of life and work. A conscious leader, a conscious man / woman, a conscious friend,

a conscious lover hold an increasingly important role in the quickly evolving post-pandemic world.

We include new and often alternative tools and techniques in our individual and corporate training

to sustain this direction in human developments.

Meet The Team


Sergio Montebello

    As a young child, it was evident that Sergio was already aware of his true spiritual nature; he used to tell his mother that he could see different colours surrounding people. He later found out that he could see people's auras. As a young teen, Sergio was already looking for answers to life's greatest question - why are we here? His quest led him to study traditional religions such as Buddhism, Sikhism, Islam, and Christianity, then moving on to Taoism, Zen, the Kabbalah, Hermeticism and just about anything else he could read to try and find answers. 

    His journey led him to train as a psychic medium in 2010 delivering messages to loved ones at no cost, purely for validation.  After building a successful business, Sergio suffered a karmic lesson that completely destroyed his world. The crippling situation severely affected Sergio’s health and finances. He concluded that this perceived negative situation was a lesson, a lesson he would need to overcome by tapping into all that he had learnt throughout his life so far.


    Now, Sergio is dedicated to helping others discover their true selves, to unleash their untapped hidden power, and build the life they were born to live. Sergio has coached individuals, teams, and corporations using ancient techniques that apply to the modern world.

      Suzi Edwards

    United Kingdom

      Suzi's spiritual journey started 15 years ago after her experience of life with a narcissist partner. She was lost and confused, yet she knew there had to be more to life than this and started to explore spirituality. Looking back now, Suzi realises that she has always felt disconnected and misunderstood by people around her, however these feelings were her intuition trying to guide her towards the spiritual path. She always had psychic abilities and intuitive hits.

      Towards the end of her abusive relationship she began having prophetic knowings, usually warnings about things her partner was going to do or say that would cause distress. Not long after this, she suddenly felt an intense yearning for a tarot reading. The effects of her tarot reading were also so profound that it changed the course of her life forever. From then on,  Suzi dedicated herself to developing and honing her psychic abilities through energy work, meditation and self-reflection as well as energy healing modalities such as chakra work, crystal healing, Reiki 1 and 2, and the moon. She started to do readings for friends and family, using tarot cards as a tool for guidance, soon got a job with Psychic Today and set up her own business. This led her to study The Akashic Records, which she currently specialises in.


      Suzi helps others on their own spiritual journey providing them with the tools and guidance they need to find inner peace and harmony and helping people reconnect with their soul to create a life of purpose.

        Fast forward through a childhood of travel and adventures Nikki landed her dream job with British Airways. The illness that soon followed she views as a universal blessing in disguise, changing the course of her life forever. Following her instincts, she turned away from the medical system and in her quest to heal naturally decided to trust her own inner guidance system ‘the path of the soul’ to help her find the way. 


        She is a natural writer from childhood, a gift she believes not only helped her find her own way back to her authentic self in the latter years but also a channel to source, helping her bring messages of truth, health, and healing from elsewhere. 


        Nikki is passionate about assisting others to be empowered to take charge of their own healing powers to heal themselves naturally. She is a certified Reflexologist, Iridologist and Holistic Health Coach.
