About me

Feeling stuck or in a rut with work? Or maybe you just drifted into your job and you have no idea how to find work that matters to you. I've been there and I care deeply about working with you to find joy in your life and your everyday! 

Working with me, my clients have found motivation, managed stress, prevented burnout, improved their work relationships, understood their people pleasing tendencies and created work/life balance.

I work with people looking to change their view of their world so that they can live a more liberated, joyful life on their terms. My clients have told me they've found life-changing confidence, clarity and self-esteem through working with me.  If you are wanting to take control of your life and career and most importantly, find happiness in what you do then get in touch. 

I'm an accredited ICF coach and facilitator and have worked for myself since 2017. Since I started coaching in 2020, I have worked with people to help them get really clear on what career they want, (or how to improve their current one) then create the game plan to make it happen. 

As a portfolio professional, I have already taken the leap to leave my 9-5 because I knew how much it mattered to find a career set-up that works. If you're considering making a change, are unhappy in your current role or just all round want to find purpose, let's book in a call. 

Why Me?

My core value is play, closely followed by freedom and equality. I believe life is about playing with possibilities, until you find the ones that fit with who you really are. I know it’s easy to get stuck in a life that just isn’t right for you. That’s why I launched Game Plan Life Coaching, so you can build your own.

Career coaching with me is about realising and moving boldly towards your own dreams and ambitions. To date, I've quit jobs, worked part time, worked freelance and started my own business. This means that I know what you're going through and I want to work with you and coach you through your exploration of what works for you.

What you can expect

My clients say my coaching style is creative, open and warm. I can also be quite direct but that's only because I want you to see real personal development. My priority is to hold a safe space where my clients feel heard, seen and able to express who they really are. 

You can book one session or multiple for online coaching, it's up to you and how fast you want to see results.

If you're interested in staff coaching or executive coaching for your company then please get in touch as I also offer this service. 

What happens during the session? 

Coaching is essentially a conversation. One that has the power to change your mindset — and your life! I’ll ask most of the questions, and you’ll do most of the talking and thinking.

You’ll usually come to the session with an outcome or goal in mind. But sometimes you’ll simply have something you want to explore. We’ll do that together in a safe, open, warm and non-judgmental space. And you’ll leave with clear actions to get you closer to where you want to be.

My job is to question you to help you find clarity and keep you accountable to making lasting, positive change happen.

The best way to understand the power of coaching is to experience it. I offer a free, no-obligation session so you can see if my coaching style is for you. Book a space here:

Nicola is extremely intuitive and an amazing listener. I immediately felt comfortable and safe to share, even with only virtual video calls. She is able to customize practical homework that aligns with your goals and needs, and she does not waste time on things that you do not want to discuss. . Jon

I have found every session incredibly helpful  - there have been plenty of lightbulb moments that have helped me navigate a period of lots of ambiguity in my life. Emma

I signed up for coaching because I wanted to get clear on what direction I wanted to go in, but actually I have learned so much more about myself in terms of getting the basics right of looking after myself, the importance of taking small action steps and building the confidence to trust my gut and my decisions.  Emily

The sessions helped me clarify a lot of things and reduced mental clutter which was very useful for my general well-being. It also gives me a clearer and simpler sense of direction.  Zain

Further information

I know some people like to feel they have something in common with their coach and so here are some things that might be of interest to you.

- I'm queer and realising I'm part of the LGBTQ community in my thirties has been one other way I've been able to fully embrace and live the life I wish to lead.

- I have worked as an Account Manager and an Events Specialist and have been working for myself since 2018. I qualified as a coach in 2020. 

- Like a lot of people, I went to school, then university, then got a 9-to-5 job with a plan of finding a partner and settling down. But also like a lot of people, I felt pretty unfulfilled. That's what lead to me working for myself in 2017.

- I subscribe to Burner principles which, for the uninitiated means I care deeply about radical self-expression, participation and radical self-reliance to name my top 3 principles!

- If you don't think coaching is for you then get in touch, I was sceptical of coaching before I got a coach so have a chat with me so I can show you what it can do!


"I really enjoyed the sessions & I cannot explain the impact they have had on my life. I found your way of opening my mind up worked really well. I liked your seemingly subtle approach & always felt at ease & able to open up."

Katy Ware

"Thank you for giving up your time. You have helped me begin a journey that I needed to start, and now I can begin to feel excited as well as challenged by it. I am starting to try and understand myself a bit more, and feel I am gaining confidence in doing so. Thanks!"

Charlie H.

"I was a little bit of a sceptic about coaching before I started and I wasn't sure if it would work for me. However I'm a complete convert now and feel that it really helped me make positive change."
