“Working with Nick was a fantastic experience. He helped me to identify my key strengths and showed me how to better utilise them in my work life. This really boosted my confidence, productivity and self-efficacy. Since working with Nick, I have been able to translate these techniques into other areas of my life. There have been notable improvements across the board. I would recommend positive psychology and working with Nick to everyone.” TR - Camborne, Cornwall.
"The manner of the sessions was always warm and friendly, gently enquiring nature with an overriding sense of inquisitiveness which helped our discussions. I thought Nicks exposition of what he saw as potential very illuminating and worth investigating. Nick was very competent in correlating the results of his personality inventories into achievable areas for personal growth". DL – Falmouth, Cornwall
