Hi, I'm Nicola - a Mindset & Performance Coach living in London (although planning to move to Cape Town), working with inspiring people all over the world.
I'm a travel enthusiast, fitness fanatic, personal development podcast (and peanut butter) obsessed, with a penchant for Mexican food!
After graduating from Exeter University, with a degree in Spanish & Business, I took a year out to go travelling before starting my corporate career in London.
Towards the end of 2019 I really noticed I was missing a sense of purpose & fulfilment in my work. I wasn't "passionate" about what I was doing. My colleagues were great, the perks were good and I certainly gained many invaluable skills. However it didn't give me the drive or enthusiasm I wanted my career to offer me.
I didn't want my life to be dictated by a "9-6" routine. I sought more freedom, flexibility & autonomy. I wanted to be adding value with my work, and to feel proud, motivated and thriving. I realised I was living below my potential.
Fast-forward to March 2020, I completed my Life Coaching certification and set up my own coaching business. Since then, I've invested thousands of pounds into my own personal development and coaching. I've embraced the fear of what other's might think. I've taken risks by stepping away from a "secure" corporate job, with a clear progression plan. And I've moved away from the "typical" career path that 95% of my friends and peers are on.
For a while I juggled my business alongside my full time job and then realised for it to grow, and for me to be able to work with more people, I needed to prioritise what I was most passionate about. So I took the leap, made some difficult choices and quit my "corporate" job.
I now work with female founders & solopreneurs on a 1:1 coaching basis, as well as organisations and universities to deliver group workshops & online webinars. I'm also proud to be the in-house coach for Women Who Will - a social enterprise and membership platform for womxn who create positive social & environmental impact through their work.

I'm here to support you every step of the way. I'll help you optimise your mindset so you make better choices and feel good, always.
"One of the biggest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself."
"In such a short space of time, the difference in me is tenfold. We started our sessions at the beginning of the pandemic and Nicola helped me manage my anxiety surrounding my job instability. I was introduced to different exercises to help develop areas of my personal and professional life in manageable stages, as well as tools to visualise the steps I wanted to take to achieve my goals. I would definitely recommend Nicola’s coaching services to anyone looking for positive & clear guidance with getting their compass pointed in the right direction!"
