About me

Thanks for visiting my page.

Hi, I’m Nancy and I am a coach and NLP practitioner who offers friendly and relaxed one-to-one coaching sessions for people who want to take some time out to invest in themselves.  

I work with people who feel a bit stuck - are you finding it hard to move forward in life and create the changes you want, or maybe you're not sure how to figure out what you want in life?   

Or perhaps you've experienced loss are looking for some support around adapting to change? If you're feeling a little lost, no longer sure of who you are and who you want to be going forward, you've come to the right place. 

Coaching provides you with time to focus on you, without interruption and that's a powerful thing.

We are all unique, with our own set of challenges and opportunities, and our own version of what 'good' looks like. No matter what your goal or motivation is to have coaching, I’m here to help you discover your potential and strength, so you can learn to thrive. 

I provide a safe space, where you can talk openly and be listened to, without judgement and I provide you with the all-important accountability, to help you move forward in a way and time that's right for you. 

I don't hold the answers - you have all of those inside you, coaching provides an empowering way for you to discover the answers for yourself.

Why not get in touch for a free discovery call, with no obligation to sign up to sessions.

Coaching for Loss & Grief

Loss can be felt in many ways and at different times in all our lives - grief is our response to a loss, such as:

 - bereavement - death of a person or pet
 - loss of career & status
 - financial loss 
 - loss of a relationship
 - loss of identity (after having children for example)
 - loss of physical wellbeing

Each person's journey through grief unique. People will often experience similar feelings, but no two journeys through grief are the same. I provide a non-judgement space for you to talk openly and honestly without worry of upsetting someone else. I'll support you in looking at the impact of your loss, helping you to adjust and identify ways to begin to move forward, while managing the pain of your loss, in your own time.

All my coaching sessions are one-to-one and tailored to your needs – because life isn’t one size fits all, so neither should your coaching sessions.

If you're interested in coaching to support you in moving forward after an experience of loss, get in touch for a chat, it would be great to hear from you!  

Coaching - how does it work?

No matter what you want coaching for, in the sessions you'll have time to reflect, to talk, to hear yourself, helping you understand where you are now and where you want to get to.  Together we can explore where life feels hard, ways you feel limited and where you have opportunities, resourcefulness strengths that you can use.  I'll help you see life from new perspectives, share techniques and strategies you can use to help you find a way to move forward in life,  in a way that is right for you.

Coaching supports you in working things out for yourself, which is incredibly empowering; I won't tell you what to do. I'm here listen to you, to point out things you are saying and ask you questions, to help you find your own answers.

Coaching gives you the tools, strategies and accountability to help you achieve what you want.  You'll discover all the answers are already within you, coaching just helps you hear them. 

All sessions are one-to-one and are tailored to your needs and goals.  I provide individual coaching that helps you get the results you want, in a way that works for you.

Further information


Emma found it hard to have a positive outlook on life.  Through coaching the Emma was able to find new ways of looking at situations to help reduce her worrying and to help boost her self-confidence and Emma shared:

"Nancy made me feel comfortable and safe from the get go. My thinking patterns are completely different now and I feel equipped with the tools for life that will enable me to succeed and believe in myself more.

When I look back to the person I was at the beginning of our sessions to who I am now, I am genuinely amazed at how far I've come and how much my confidence has grown."

Liza had coaching for a few months, looking at how she could improve the way she felt about herself. Liza held out of date beliefs about her abilities and herself that were holding her back in life.  Through our sessions Liza updated her opinions and 'her story' and built more confidence in herself and her career.

"I’ve been working with Nancy and Catkin Coaching for a few months and I can honestly say it’s made such a difference to how I think and how I approach my career and personal life. 

Nancy has a brilliant and very practical way of addressing issues and challenges and has given me so many ‘tools’ that I find myself using all the time. Each session genuinely comes with a revelatory insight that has me saying “of course!” and helps me better understand as aspect of my life and how to approach it. 

 Since meeting with Nancy I feel like I am clearer on what I do and don’t want, that I am better equipped for the ups and downs of life, and that I have a better and more positive outlook on the future. I genuinely feel like the experience has improved my approach and my state of mind."

Sarah had two sessions exploring what direction she wanted to go in her career. and shared:

"When I first contacted Nancy​​ I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to achieve from the coaching sessions. I had never done anything like it before but as a mum of three and made redundant while on mat leave during the pandemic I really didn’t know which direction I wanted my career/life to go in. Speaking with Nancy over a few sessions gave me so much clarity. The changes I want to make won’t happen overnight and she helped me set out a roadmap with milestones. Nancy is a wonderful listener and so calming. She really helped me explore different avenues using her coaching techniques and I would highly recommend her."

Brendan had sessions looking at what direction to take his career and shared:

"Nancy has been really helpful, gentle and so easy to work with. She gets the best out of someone with wonderful ways of encouragement and compassion."

Lizz's goal was to explore what direction she wanted to go in next and shared:

"Nancy has that special skill of making you feel instantly comfortable, which is great if you’re unsure about coaching and have never done anything like it before. She manages to create an incredibly warm, friendly and non-judgemental environment in which you can explore, think and talk about things that you never would in ‘normal’ life. Nancy really helped me to identify my values and goals, overcoming negative thinking patterns and self-talk. If you’re considering coaching, I really can’t recommend Nancy highly enough!"

Andrea had three sessions to help gain clarity and direction in her career and home/work life balance and shared:

"Through coaching with Nancy I was able to identify key areas which are important to me, some of which were unexpected. I was able to explore these areas further and work towards achieving specific goals.  I was able to let somethings go. This process was very helpful in allowing me to feel more control of my life and the decisions that I make about it."

Jo's goal was to create a better work/home life balance and shared: 

"My sessions with Nancy felt comfortable, supportive, open and inspiring. Nancy supported me to find practical solutions to achieve my goal and through discussion, exercises and guided reflection between sessions.  This was such a positive and valuable experience."

Becky had sessions to support her in setting up a new business and shared:

"I thoroughly enjoyed my coaching sessions with Nancy. She has a lovely warm, calm demeanour which instantly puts you at ease. These sessions have been invaluable to me, and I now have a clear set of next steps to take in order to develop my business plan and make it a reality."
