You eagerly seek change in some area or areas of your life, but struggle to make that change happen.
Maybe because you’re feeling a bit lost at the moment and need some kind of direction. Maybe you’re trying to change the way you feel as if it’s pulling you away the person you want to be. It doesn’t really matter what it is you’re struggling with, what matters most is that you want to DO something about it right NOW. That’s what brought you here, isn’t it?
You don’t want to settle for how things are. Not anymore.
Past (failed) attempts are however making you believe you might not be able to tackle this challenge just by yourself (JUST YET). You might have tried before, full of enthusiasm, but your energy usually wears off. Your motivation doesn’t seem to last so you keep returning to those same old, comfortable and safe routines. Your comfort zone.
But in order to grow you need to commit to a change. So the question you need to ask yourself is, are you ready to make that step?
IS LIFE COACHING SOMETHING FOR ME?
If you think you're ready to make a change then yes, finding a coach that is a good fit to you would be the next step. Generally speaking, if you’re looking for a life coach you’re looking to grow. You’re hungry to resolve an ongoing issue. This could be lack of confidence, feeling overwhelmed with life, struggling with anxiety or generally taking the next step for your career and yourself. Bottom line is, you want to tackle your issue so that things are different and stay different in the future.
A life coach is there for you and is typically someone who:
- doesn’t fall for the lame excuses or stories you keep telling yourself which hold you back
- makes you feel able and confident enough to step outside your comfort zone, ready to grow and achieve the things you want to achieve
- you can trust in a safe environment where you can feel completely understood
listens to your story, with full attention but without judgement
- helps you begin to see and become more self-aware of your amazing potential and resources within you (yes, it’s really there)
- holds you accountable and regularly follows-up on your goals. If you want to do something tomorrow you’re going to do it tomorrow.
- questions whether your motivation, your desire to do something, is true to yourself and therefore never runs out
Anthony: Things in my work life needed some balance
"I first went to see Nick when things in my work life needed some balance. I was always a half full kind of person, but seemed to have lost that and started becoming a half-empty person, which was starting to affect my personal and working life.
Nick was able to provide a different perspective on some of the issues, provide focus and tools and techniques for me cope with the situation. I felt that Nick was extremely personable and has the ability to connect with his clients quickly and to begin work with them at whatever stage they're in at the time. Nick was trustworthy, always encouraging, and a patient and insightful guide through some of life experiences in pursuit of your goals.''
Naomi: I thought I wasn't good enough
"I came to Nick as I needed some help with my confidence and self-belief issues. It was important to tackle them as I had a few dance auditions coming up and I was worried it might show as it was the main thing holding me back. I did an exercise that helped me tackle my lousy thoughts I kept telling myself. The thought was that I’m not good enough and I won’t be as good as others out there. The exercise really helped me like loads and I was so glad I didn’t had to struggle with negative self-talk anymore during my auditions."
Simon: I had some issues before with my motivation
"I had some issues before with my motivation, diet and more specifically going the gym. Nick was a friendly and helpful coach who put me at ease and made the experience a lot more enjoyable and less daunting. This life coaching experience has been a beneficial one and has guided me in the right direction for positive outcomes that have already been made."
Richelle: I didn’t know what to do with my career
"Initially, I didn’t know what to do with my career. Nick helped me to look within myself and to search for the answers. He was like the critical sounding board I was exactly looking for. Already after two sessions I took my first big steps to chase my ambition. One of these actions was to enroll into an interior design course, something I always aspired to do! Apparently, a little nudge can really make a difference. Overall, Nick is a pleasant guy and great coach to talk to and really thinks along to help you find your way out, it worked for me!"
Louise: I had trouble formulating obtainable goals
I was a bit sceptical about life coaching at first as not my cup of tea, but Nick put me straight at ease. Looking back on it, it was an enjoyable experience. It really helped put future opportunities in clear obtainable goals. Excellent.
SO WHO'S THIS "HABIT COACH"?
The Habit Coach has been set-up by Nick, a qualified life coach and an accredited NLP Practitioner. He also holds a Master degree in Consumer Studies, where he specialised in decision making and behavioural design. Nick has set-up the Habit Coach – a local life coaching business based in Pembrokeshire – because he thoroughly enjoys supporting people just like you in following through on the goals you have set yourself or habits you want to build or overcome.
What makes Nick stand out to most other life coaches out there is his practical experience as an outdoor instructor and behavioural therapist, helping individuals to step out of their comfort zone. Also, Nick places emphasis on a very particular form of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A COACHING SESSION?
First and foremost, I want to make it clear to you that every coaching session is tailored to you. No coaching session is the same because your story and your problems are unique to you and different to anyone else if that makes sense.
That said, I can give you a general outline. The way I coach is structured around 60 minutes coaching sessions. I’ll start by getting to know your story and your struggle. I’ll make sure I understand, clarify, ask questions and challenge you when needed. This is necessary so that we can figure out exactly where your problem lies and what deserves attention first. Various NLP and coaching techniques can be introduced throughout the session to get to the core of your problem quicker, but that all depends your story and what works best for you.
During the session we'll break things down to eventually come to a specific and actionable solution for you to follow up. Sometimes that includes a bit of homework. You should come away from the conversation inspired, empowered, and equipped with the necessary mindset and tools to move forward on your own. That said, I'm always there for you if you need any additional advice. We can have a chat over the phone, email, or you can book additional sessions depending on the case.
Coaching sessions are priced at 35 pounds per hour. Reduced rates are available if you decide to book for more than one session. It's 3 sessions for 100 pounds and 6 sessions for 180 pounds if you pay in advance. Please call to check for availability and eligibility.

Coaching sessions take place in a professional and safe environment at The Therapy Rooms Pembrokeshire. We'll have a comfortable and quiet room with a few sofa's and resources like a flip board, post-its, etc. at our disposal.
