About me

"Coaching is unlocking a person's potential." Timothy Gallway

Hi, I'm Nikki. Thanks for your interest coaching. I'm a qualified life and career coach with five years experience in private coaching practice. Since 2015 I have helped many people to address their career and lifestyle concerns, to their explore options or make difficult decisions, and to move forward in the direction of their choosing (client testimonials available on my website).

If you are feeling stuck in relation to some area of your life, be that your career, living situation, relationships, health or creative endeavours, I can offer you a focussed-space of unconditional positive regard from which you can explore your thoughts, feelings and options. I won't assume what's 'right' for you, but will use my coaching skills and tool base to ensure that you are heard and understood, to help you expand your awareness, to support you in exploring your situation as fully as possible, and to give you the time, space and freedom to come to your own realisations.

In addition to ordinary coaching conversation, I will also draw on my knowledge of positive psychology (the scientific study of human flourishing) to inform my understanding and enhance your experience.

If you think I might be the right coach for you or would like to know more, reach out for a no-obligation 20 minute new client assessment call (free) or book in for a reduced fee 'taster' session (£40) and we can take things from there.

Let's go on a conversational journey of discovery, designed to get you closer to living the life that you want!

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.
