What clients say about Nicola
“I had been wanting to change my career/life direction for a long time but didn’t know quite what it was I wanted to do. Sessions with Nicola helped me to recognise and appreciate the skills I already had, encouraged me to delve deeply within me and find answers, and then she guided me on developing a plan about how I was to achieve it/them. I found the whole experience enriching and rewarding”.
- Bronagh (Downpatrick)
“I attended Nicola's life coaching programme in 2017. Nicola's calm, grounded and reassuring demeanour helped me to relax and confide. I greatly appreciated her preparedness for each session and the email summary thereafter. Nicola's insightfulness and ability to help me reflect on why I felt so 'stuck', resulted in a shift from self-criticism and frustration to a more gentle but productive approach to life goals. I am happy to report that I feel more confident and content and I am certainly more aware of the negative inner voice. I am more able to set realistic and achievable goals and recognise that self-nurturing is an important aspect of that process.
I would highly recommend Nicola as a compassionate, wise, pragmatic and fun life coach!”
- A.R., Belfast
"Very enjoyable course, Nicola helped me to look at my skills and aspirations in a new light. This has allowed me to set a plan and to take a new approach to my career."
- Glynis, Carrickfergus
“Nicola really understood and empathised with the issues that were important to me. She was incredibly encouraging and supportive. She helped me view my situation clearly and in thinking about how to communicate to others regarding it”.
- Ruth, Co Down.
“I would recommend Nicola as a coach to clients. She was engaged and interested in me as a person, not just as someone with an issue to progress and a deadline. She was mindful of my constraints – both in terms of the time I had available for the session and also the level of challenge I was presented with. She was attuned to my nuances and able to reflect them back to me with relevance at key points. It was useful and thought-provoking”.
- Louise, Co Down.
“I was a little dubious about coaching at first since I assumed that I could only find answers to my work issues from ‘experts’ in my field. Through coaching with Nicola I realised I had the answers within me all along, it just took a little unlocking!”
- CM, Belfast.
