I specialise in business, career and life coaching, taking pride in supporting people through the challenging transitions which we all face at times in our lives.
I aim to make the coaching process enjoyable and fun whilst creating a context of rich personal learning to enable my clients to regain their confidence, recognise their values and re-motivate themselves to identify and achieve their personal and career goals.
Many of the people I've coached have brought stories of dissatisfaction with relationships or career, resulting in effects ranging from depression and anxiety to lack of self-belief, demotivation and low self-esteem. I have successfully supported hundreds of clients through these difficult life transitions and challenges in order to achieve the outcomes and fulfilment that they want.

What some of my recent clients have said:
"It has been enormously helpful in supporting me to clarify the things that are important to me, both in terms of my work/life balance and my overall career."
"Nick is a super coach able to provide constructive input, experience and insight as well as practical tips and tools on progressing issues - both work challenges and career progression. He was extremely professional. I would definitely want to utilise his services again and to recommend his service to others."
"I've been particularly impressed with the flexibility and sheer variety of coaching interventions used. Working with Nick I've become re-energised simply by getting focussed on the opportunities that change presents and the ways in which I can exploit them."
"Nick's coaching has increased my self-awareness and given me the inspiration to re-evaluate myself, my values, my career and personal aspirations."

I offer a full 45 minute complimentary coaching session by phone for you to discuss your requirements. This will allow you to get a flavour of the coaching and decide if it's right for you, with no obligation or up front fees:
- Coaching sessions are bespoke and affordable with fees agreed according to individual circumstances and requirements
- All exercises and ongoing support are included in session fees
- Number and length of sessions is negotiable, with a recommended starting programme of five 1 hour sessions
- Sessions are normally undertaken by phone, but face to face coaching can also be arranged.
I am available during the day and evenings to suit you.
I have worked as a full time life, executive and career coach for the past fifteen years. Previous to that I had a very successful corporate career spanning 18 years, and before that an enjoyable and fulfilling career as a teacher for 12 years.
Married with three grown up children, I live in a cottage near the Suffolk coast which connects me with my love of the countryside and passion for the sea.
I am an experienced yachtsman and navigator, as much at home in a sea kayak as on an ocean going yacht. I also love skiing which gives me endless opportunities to be challenged, learn and continously improve.
