I'm an experienced Wellbeing Coach and Chartered Psychologist working with clients to help you manage stress, anxiety, depression and trauma affects and break out of self-imposed limitations into new possibilities, purpose, vision and better overall wellbeing. 

You will gain a range of tools and techniques to overcome self-imposed limitations into new possibilities for growth. 

Using a combination of tools, techniques and coaching models to best suit your needs, I will enable you to improve your wellbeing.

I offer a free initial discussion to see how I can help you, followed by coaching/therapy sessions to suite your needs. Please send me an email or give me a call on 07811 912 245.

Meetings are preferably held face-to-face or by telephone/ Skype/Zoom meeting. I have a consulting room at my residence, or I can travel to meet you. A suitable venue can be arranged should you have mobility needs. I am available to meet within or outside of normal working hours.

“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

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Life Coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Life Coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

I have consulting rooms at home in Falmouth.
