Passionate About Inspiring Others

I’ve always had a curiosity for what motivates people to achieve great things and a passion for supporting them to do so. As a coach and practitioner, it's really important that I provide a safe environment to partner with you in exploring what matters most to you or your organization, defining clear goals, and building the confidence to make meaningful changes.

 

I have 13+ years experience supporting organizations in the private, public, and charity sectors to lead effectively, work smarter, and develop high performing teams. My experience combined with my training as a business psychologist, uniquely positions me to advise companies and leaders to overcome challenges in achieving their ambitions.

As a coach, I believe that people are capable of amazing things. It's critical that leaders have the opportunity to lead with the integrity and authenticity that has the power to inspire innovation, human connection and more conscious business practice. I work with ambitious leaders and executive professionals to provide a space for personal and professional growth. My coaching training has focused on going 'deep', with an understanding adult development and behavior change, and a strong foundation in ICF's core principles. 

Underpinning all my work is a belief that people could be live more fulfilling lives, and (with so much of our lives spent at work) that workplaces can disrupt the current dynamic by fostering happier workers and healthier connection. This belief fuelled the curiosity for my first degree in organizational psychology from George Washington University (Washington, DC). Idealistic and passionate about the potential for improving the state of the workplace, I was drawn to my first career as a management consultant. 

My professional services experience started at Deloitte Consulting, developing and transforming over 40 organizations. In that time, I worked and lived in the US, New Zealand, and the UK. I further developed my experience as a Learning & Organization Development Specialist at Cancer Research UK, where I worked with leadership and teams to help them translate an ambitious and exciting strategy into action with the hope to cure cancer sooner. With the support of coaching, I transitioned my career into becoming my own boss and established a coaching and consulting practice in 2016 which allows me to do my best work and adapt to the ever-changing demands of life. 

Providing a professional and rich experience for my clients is fundamental to my values. As part of my committment to continuous learning, I completed an MSc in Industrial / Organisational & Business Psychology at University College London in 2017, which enables me to apply the latest in behavioral science to solve the toughest problems facing my clients.  

Previous CLients

“From the get-go, Nicole’s curiosity and enthusiasm for our team and our development day was palpable. Nicole asks questions to understand and then uses her experience to shape a session to meet our needs. As an L&D professional, it was a delight to work with some so open, creative, and purpose-driven. The workshop made a huge impact on the team. Nicole is a great facilitator – encouraging participation at every stage and enabling the room to rela and feel comfortable with the content. I have enjoyed working with Nicole, and feel I have learnt new things that I can bring back to the organisation.” 

Emma R.

L&D Manager, Charity Sector

“Nicole was a fantastically skilled, professional member of our team. She worked tirelessly to help guide us through a period of extreme change and I have no doubt we came out of it stronger, as a direct result of her. Easy to get along with, super smart and hardworking, Nicole really helped me to redefine what someone in her profession adds to an organisation. She would strengthen any team she was a part of.”

James P.

Digital Director, Digital Media Agency

“Nicole has been my coach for almost a year now and I plan to continue that coaching relationship, Not only she is an amazing human being, but she is also a fantastic coach. What I love about her coaching style is that she’s got a very good mix of being able to listen and let you talk, while asking the right questions you hadn’t thought of before or the ones that push you to be true to yourself, so you finish with a very clear understanding of what you want to do next and why. Definitely highly recommended, she’s awesome! “

Monica M.

Product Manager, Banking Sector

“Nicole is an exceptional facilitator. I’ve had the pleasure of working with her on multiple projects, and I don’t think I’ve seen anyone better at doing what she does. Nicole has a healthy balance of passion, knowledge, humour, frankness, discipline (to keep us on track) to ensure we benefitted from the sessions. She’s a great communicator and so really good at helping approach things from different angles but also had the deftness to move at different speeds according to our collective needs.”

John R.

Digital Product Manager, Third Sector

“I really enjoyed working with Nicole. She has a lot of very positive energy, which she brings into every session – whether that’s one-to-one coaching or a larger group workshop. Nicole is always well prepared and has a clear plan for whatever activity she is leading, but she is also able and willing to be flexible if it makes more sense to mix things up a bit. Nicole is very committed to what she does as well as being lots of fun to work with and I would certainly recommend her.”

“Coaching was just what I needed to give me the confidence to go into this transition in my career. Nicole’s ability to ask the challenging questions that I hadn’t asked myself yet really made a difference in my coaching experience. They gave me some serious food for thought and it has helped me to identify what I want to explore myself and reflect on in more depth.”

“Nicole is awesome. I had the pleasure of working closely with Nicole as part of two internal org design projects across my team and I don’t think we could have got through it without her. She has incredible communications skills, facilitates sessions with teams of all levels with ease and is a pro at coaching teams to reach an outcome around culture and change. On a personal level, Nicole is a delight. Always positive, always upbeat and always available to catch up. I could not recommend her enough.”
