"It truly seems like I have always known her. Articulate, honest, direct, detail oriented, and self-aware Nichola has spent her entire life focused on learning the meaning of her experiences, her own feelings, and her behavior. In so doing, she has acquired the ability to help others. In a world where the art of conversation is all but lost, you will notice right away that Nichola is someone special. She listens when you speak. She really hears you. Her way of speaking elicits your rapt attention. It is through practicing the art and skill of conversation that Nichola exercises her ability to understand and help others. Nichola is both mentor and coach to me. I have found when facing a difficult decision or dilemma, a conversation with Nichola can lend powerful insight leading to surprising, creative, and even delightful solutions. I recommend her as a person of good will, integrity, and unusual abilities. KB, USA"
"Nichola is wonderfully supportive and always there to listen and help. Nichola has a true gift of clarity and is extremely capable of expressing herself. During facilitations she has helped me get in touch with my inner feelings and taught me how to listen and pay attention to what is happening to the physical energy in my body. This ability to focus in on the body has helped me to get in touch with myself, emotionally and physically, and to be more accepting of situations as they arise. Nichola is an inspiration, holding a safe and loving space for me whilst I communicate my deepest thoughts. I have felt from our first moment that I can trust Nichola implicitly, she is so open and giving and always pointing out the progress that is being made and helping to reflect on that. Nichola is a true natural. KG, UK"
"In the past, in my haste to move on (or not, which was more often the case), I packed up all my pre-conceived thoughts and persistent beliefs and dragged them around with me. Nichola has helped me to spring-clean and remove my mind’s clutter, and it’s working. TG, UK"
"She has a great capacity to listen. One might remark that this is a vital talent in any good coach. I feel, though, that Nichola has so finely tuned her ability to enable her to get to the very heart of the issue in hand. And, once her focus is on the real issues, she manages, through her pertinent questions and perspicacity, to open previously sealed off areas in one’s life to allow the light to flood in. Indeed, after our sessions, I often experience a sensation of lightness and calm.
"Nichola has guided me in so many areas of my life that it is hard to think of a part of my life that has not been touched by her unique coaching talents! Her eagerness to really listen and truly understand another’s perspective is genuine and honest. She is open, direct and approachable. The speed at which she can go straight to the heart of the matter, no matter how complex, is quite amazing and her ability to put things in perspective is unique in my experience. She possesses an enormous generosity of spirit which generates a warm feeling of understanding, optimism and support which stays long after the coaching session has ended. Her positive and upbeat approach is of real value in times of difficulty and stress.
I can recommend Nichola without reservation, as a highly talented, empathetic and effective coach and I can testify to having managed to get through some pretty tough times in my life with Nichola’s support. I feel privileged to know her. BB, Ireland"
"Nichola taught me to be more positive and face my issues. We all have a chip on our shoulder about something, and her process helps you not to react to these things in a painful way, and lets you see them more clearly, or to be able to view them from many different angles, which puts them in new perspective; effectively stopping them being a problem. She allows you to feel how you feel without labelling it as good or bad, letting you experience your feelings in a controlled/safe environment.
It's something you wished you'd done years ago--like when you change jobs or leave a lover, and realise you should have done it earlier. She deals with your hang-ups very quickly by asking questions about how you feel about things and how they affect you, and then about your answers. Are they really true? Could the opposite be true? And very soon you learn to deal with everything in a new way where you see that you don't need to worry anymore. Or you may still worry but you will accept it rather than suppress it. She helps you accept yourself for what you are, good and bad.
I got to the point where suddenly everywhere I went people were smiling at me and nodding at me in the street. She taught me to simply smile at everyone and the reaction was a lovely surprise. Life continues to change and a new confidence seemed easy. Many thanks. SK, UK"
"I thought Nichola was really good and I felt very safe and supported by her. I find it hard to show emotions especially with people I don't know, and I was able to open up with her! JH, UK"
"Coaching with Nichola has had a profound effect on my life - and without me having to do anything! It has enabled me to seriously challenge some early beliefs which have been causing me great stress in my life. Nichola's style is incredibly reassuring and straightforward. I highly recommend her.
