About me

Coaching for Transition. Career | Relocation | Life phase

I work with people who are in a stage of transition in life. Perhaps it's a change in career, stepping back and having to deal with feeling of loss, guilt, or a stepping up  and dealing with the dreaded 'impostor syndrome''. 

Or it could be a life phase. Work is on the horizon for the first time in a long while but how do you cope? Or maybe you are facing an empty nest and wondering who 'you' are now?

Relocation: Are you soon to be an expatriate? Or are you returning and having dealt with culture shock are experiencing 'reverse culture shock'

“Calm, thoughtful and positive, Nicola listens deeply and intuitively. Her sessions have genuinely been the best investment I have ever made in myself and my career."

How can I help? I offer practical, personal coaching with warmth, insights and a wealth of experience.  Come and walk and talk with me on the beautiful Downs in Bristol for a refreshing perspective.

A free consultation, with no obligation, is available via Zoom/Skype, phone or a walk and talk on the Downs or by the Harbourside in Bristol.

Throughout my coaching career people have told me that 'I get to the root of things pretty damned quick'.

All my work is underpinned by powerful and yet subtle N.L.P. techniques and I also draw on a range of other strategies; from the wise words of James Clear to Brené Brown and the brilliant Matt Haig.

If you'd like to chat over what you are looking for, please do get in touch to see how we might work together.
