What makes me different is my approach is original and enjoyable yet flexible according to the needs of the individual.
According to neuroscience there are 3 brain networks.The executive network, the default mode network and the salience network.The executive is where you process knowledge, logic and reason and the Default mode network in the brain known as the imaginative network, which builds on your executive network.The salience is the part where we decide if what information is presented to us really interests us and whether we should give it our attention or not!
So my objective is to make sure what we focus on each session really interests you that you want to give attention to, as this is the key to unlock insight,creativity and great for your mental health.
My model does wonders to relieve work or relationship related stress as it facilitates positive, thoughts and emotions to relax your mind so you have more clarity and self-awareness regarding choices.
As your Coach, I use creative mind tools, to facilitate this deep awareness, leading to personal transformation. This results in new or renewed aspirations that might make a huge difference to your career choices and income bracket
I also believe in facilitating a goal/prize big enough to inspire effortless application/transition.
I use thrilling and adventurous metaphors using a travelling concept.
My perception is also that the more we are aware of our self value we can learn to grow in awareness of what is unique about us and what special authentic gifts and talents we have to share with the rest of humanity.
For example, a performer needs an atmosphere to share their gift and be connected to their gift first.
The more relaxed they are and excited to express themselves the performance is more likely to touch the emotions of the people and peak.
Instead of having to meet expectations over and over again and hoping to perform faultlessly and be received well, they can share freely their gift from a foundation of high self worth, that is not going to change after their performance.
My gift is to facilitate You to find a creative way to find a greater personal awareness of your authentic self and transform your relationship with yourself and others.
I facilitate greater awareness of your Unique Career,Gifts and Talents that fulfil you and touch the emotions of others.
The more aware you are of the Prize, known as your Vision, the high energy will inspire you to achieve your aspiration in that particular area whether relationships, personal development, career, health and spirituality.
I use a collaborative approach where we explore and discover together the mouth watering insight and the ocean of possibilities without judgement.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been Life Coaching since 2004 however until October 2017, I was very mechanical in my approach and facilitated only linear thinking and had no idea how creative I could be in the coaching relationship.
That all changed when I studied coaching as a concept and this included the psychological side of the process.
From all my research and experience I have found that building a foundation where my clients can feel so safe to explore all that really interests them and build a fabulous coaching relationship is a golden key to unlock assured insight and awareness.
My coaching approach is facilitating adventure and "AHA" "Eureka"moments.
I have coached Business owners, Sportspeople, Senior Executives, Actors and Performers.

The first session is free, for which you will get huge value from, so you can taste whether my approach wets your appetite for success. If we make a great fit we will discuss the best package to move forward and how we can exceed your expectations.
- Foundation package for Personal Coaching for 4 (one hour) or 8 (30 minute sessions.
- Practical application support package from the second month which is 2 (1/2 hour) sessions a month.
- 12 month support package where you get as many sessions as and when you need them to facilitate a longer term focus.

"Working in the entertainment industry one gets used to 'rejection'. Regularly being told that you do not 'fit' or that you are not 'right' for the part or even more annoyingly 'You got really close but it didn't go your way this time'. Although I had grown accustomed to hearing this and I thought I had built good resilience to the negative affects of hearing words like this, especially since I was still getting work regularly, I realised at some point that deep within my heart a seed of doubt in my ability to be the type of actress I wanted and had always thought I was. I questioned my creative choices and was beginning to believe that I wasn't who I thought I was. Working with the Mind Holiday tools in one to one sessions started the process of change that released me from that negative belief. Through the sessions I was able to see in depth how valuable I am and the gifts and talents that I have and my purpose to impact my world. The Mind Holiday journey took me to a place of understanding of who I am and how precious I am. Its a place without competition or need to please. Its a solid unique existence. A place where one realises that I'm running my own race and I will always win.
I'm really grateful for the help I received and it has made all the difference in my performances in auditions, rehearsals and on stage and set"

I chose a mountain in Nepal and experienced everything from the first step to the very peak. I heard overwhelming sounds, amazingly fresh scents, majestic colours and beautiful feelings of movement and freedom all up the mountain. He was able to trigger my memory to climbing hills in the Lake District and this helped me really zone in to the climbing adventure.
I was allowed to play with the idea of climbing the mountain for six months.
i wanted no publicity and when I arrived at the top I just wanted to satellite my wife through special technology that I had done it There were surprises that overwhelmed me and brought back real memories.
Enjoying the feeling of time going slowly and a positive emotion at the end of the mind holiday inspired me to live the rest of my life with a sense of achievement and really valued.
Nick guided me up a mountain that brought deep joy to my heart and a taste of heaven at a time when I am diseased and have only one leg. I now feel more valued and more of a purpose for living and reaching out to others.
"Nick I feel so happy"
Nick let me experience a trip to Dubai with the city illuminated but in unusual blue sky at night.
I was greeted by 7 puppies in my hotel with a rose in each of their mouth's and my room had beautiful scents. The puppies had a special message for me !
The whole experience resonated with me spiritually.
Nick also let me explore and play with my business ideas by taking me on a mind holiday to the country concerned. This allowed me to get more insight and practical wisdom because of the freedom I felt to assess the situation.
Nick stressed there was no negative outcome and everything would go smoothly so I chose a long trip to Vancouver, Canada.
The plane journey was incredibly fast and smooth, the views from the top of the hills in Vancouver were breathtaking.
I found a precious stone when I was swimming in the beautiful ice, refreshing lake
that was the perfect temperature.
I warmed up in a sauna and spa afterwards and even had a massage while painting a landscape from the window view to the lake and hills.
This holiday gave me a new unique value and an awareness of what I can do when I am relaxed and free from fear and anxiety.
I have since been to Canada for real and before I was very anxious about flying and the whole idea.
I am sure the happy memories working with Nick helped to conquer the negative thoughts and now I can travel and paint with more freedom.
Nick was recommended to me by my friend.
"Thank you Nick
Couldn't have got there without you
I feel like for the first time in a long time I'm starting to look forward and not be held back by my past."
I experienced a very deep sea dive and discovered I needed my friends to go to deeper depths and more challenging places. I also learnt so much from a holiday to Rio, that revealed a present personal and business challenge I could address.
Before the Mind Holiday I was very stressed at work and through going on a journey back to where I had my honeymoon in Mexico, I had a truly amazing experience. This included wonder moments on the journey and time ticking just how I wanted it to.
I was wowed by the unexpected surprises and when it was time to come back to reality I was so relaxed and highly energised.
I didn't think this approach would be effective with me even though I read fantasy novels but how wrong I was, it was spectacular and thrilling at times.
