About me

Hi I am a Life/ Executive Mindset Coach and Psychotherapist.

Imagine how it would feel if you could overcome the things that have been holding you back and you could be truly happy?

It feels good doesn’t it?

Work with me to overcome your stress, let go of high-functioning anxiety, release your limiting beliefs and elevate your performance and wellbeing through bespoke 1:1 Coaching, Psychotherapy and Corporate Wellness Programs.

You are in the exactly the right place if you look like you ‘have it all together’ but on the inside, you feel anxious, stressed and overwhelmed. You regularly overthink, worry, doubt yourself and your decisions, and often feel the need to please others.

You have found me because you are ready to start taking care of yourself, master your mind and emotions, and achieve a greater sense of balance, freedom and fulfilment in all areas of your life.

Having worked with hundreds of clients and I’m confident that I can help you too.
What makes my approach so unique is that in addition to being a qualified Psychotherapist and qualified Life and Executive Coach, I’m able to draw on my other trainings in NLP, Hypnotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness, and so many more. 

This means I am able to adopt an integrative approach to client work, combining different tools and techniques from a variety of evidence-based psychological models of therapy to specifically meet your unique needs; enabling transformational and lasting changes in the most effective way.

Sessions are delivered virtually via Zoom or face to face in Manchester (Didsbury) & Cheshire (Alderley Edge)

Whether you're experiencing difficulties with issues such as ADHD, stress, anxiety, addictions, self-esteem, confidence, impostor syndrome, weight management, phobias, OCD, trauma, or you seek assistance in areas like life, relationships or your career, I will support you on your journey to overcoming the things that are currently holding you back.

In just a few sessions you will feel freer, happier and more in control than you have been in a long time. As your coach I give you the encouragement, support, challenge or push required to move you closer to your desired outcomes.

"Through working with Nicola, I’m much more aware of why and where I’m going, and I find that I’m truly holding myself more accountable, owning what I truly want to do. I’ve also learned to not be too self-critical about my journey to get there. Nicola is the right mix of coach and therapist deciphering why we do things and help us work through a process to get out of that cycle. This is the best kind of coach. Pushing you to get what you need out of yourself  whilst reinforcing that she knows you, and encouraging you along the way"

"I reached out to Nicola after a devastating breakup and feeling ‘stuck’ in life. Nicola gave me the tools I needed to gradually shift my mindset, raise my self esteem and become a truer version of myself. She also coached and taught me how to tune in to my emotions/ feelings and checking in with myself regularly. Working with Nicola over the past 5 months has been truly eye opening for me!"

"After suffering with anxiety and imposter syndrome I saw Nicola for 12 weeks. At the end I was different person. She was professional, non judge mental and easy to open up to from the start. Nicola used different therapeutic techniques and gave me strategies to take away. I initially thought 12 sessions were not going to be enough but I was better than ever by the end and Nicola gave me the tools to cope myself."


If you’re ambitious, talented and professionally motivated, then my Executive Coaching is for you.
We’ll work closely together to power up your professional potential and increase your confidence, gain work-life balance, improve performance or achieve that career climax that you’ve always had in your sights.

In today’s workplace we are exposed to constant change. As a result, we find ourselves in new situations, with new problems, dealing with the pressures that these events can bring.

My executive coaching programme will help increase self-awareness, promote greater understanding of the situations faced and generate appropriate responses and solutions to challenges.

Executive coaching is particularly beneficial for:  

  • Entrepreneurs and business owners
  • CEOs
  • New leaders to help develop strategic thinking 
  • Managers
  • Dealing with a particularly challenging project or piece of work
  • Preparing for a complex or high-profile presentation 
  • Developing new skills and/or enhancing current skills 
  • High potential staff to enable you to achieve peak performance

On this exclusive leadership programme you’ll learn how to:
Lead by example, by taking the time to invest in your own development 
Uncover what it is that’s really holding you back 
Manage your stress levels, improve your sleep and achieve your ideal work-life balance
Swap your feelings of failure and frustration, for ones of pride and achievement 
Stop waking up with feelings of dread, in anticipation of an overwhelming to-do list and challenging conversations that lie ahead
Banish imposter syndrome
Silence your inner critic, by gaining control over your mind 
Gain respect from your teams and peers as you become a more confident leader
Develop self-awareness, recognise your triggers and associated behaviours and learn to change your thought patterns
Overcome self-doubt and challenge your limiting beliefs

"Being a leader can feel lonely and not as glamourous as people might first think Just having that one hour of coaching every week for myself has been the space and time I've needed to reflect, share and explore in confidence, to look at things from a different perspective or to relax and take time out for myself for self-care which I've now learnt is a necessity not a luxury"

"I can not express my gratitude to Nicola and to our sessions. They really helped me gain a new perspective and balance in my life. When I started working with Nicola I felt overwhelmed by my thoughts and catastophised a lot!! I am now able to be more courageous in my mind and not resist the thoughts and feelings I have. I feel much more in control and have new level of confidence"
