What my clients say about career & executive coaching
Career & executive coaching testimonials
"Nick has a unique holistic coaching style that has impacted me profoundly. He is one of the few trusted people in my life. Nick's coaching approach has helped me face some of the most daunting challenges I have ever encountered. His natural intuitive and instincts, bundled with a gentle, firm and caring manner while keeping an eye for meaningful outcomes has been immensely beneficial to me. Nick integrates the full spectrum of professional career demands with personal dimensions of a human being in his coaching approach. Anyone working with Nick is indeed blessed and I highly recommend him to be part of your coaching or life journey. Heartiest thank you Nick."
Senior Manager, Robert Bosch (South East Asia)
"Nick was fantastic! He has helped me unlock areas of my life to help me excel inside and outside of work, and helped me change areas of my life which needed altering to improve my overall wellbeing. It is safe to say, his caring and genuine approach to development has made all the difference, and I would recommend Nick to anyone wanting to make positive changes in their life."
Ryan Betts, Estate Agent Sales Negotiator
"I began working with Nick on the recommendation of a trusted acquaintance. At the time, despite being a psychology graduate, a professional woman currently working in the nuclear industry with 25 years of communications experience and a qualified life coach myself, I was stuck in a period of painful indecision and anxiety."

Frances Tindall: External Affairs Executive for Horizon Nuclear Power
"I just wanted to take some time to say thank you. Thank you for all of your time, talks, advice and listening. All the work we have done together has enabled me to be a great critical care nurse. My confidence and resilience has pushed me through some trying times on the unit recently. You have given me the tools I need to support my peers and myself with encouragement, kindness and passion. I have learnt a lot about myself during this pandemic and I know I will learn a lot more. I have done things I never thought I would or could but entwined amongst it all I have realised how much I have gained from all of our sessions. It struck me the other day that without all of the work we have done I would have had a very different outlook. So thank you and here's to you. The real NHS hero! All of my thanks, Ems."
Emily Sills, NHS Critical Care Nurse
"Working with Nick has been invaluable. He has helped tease out details, and asked pertinent questions, bringing much needed clarity and a path forwards! Nick is very intuitive and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend his services."
Jacqui Mann, Senior Tax Consultant
"Working with Nick over the past year has been a very positive experience. His thoughtful insight and just the right amount of challenging questions means that I leave each session with a new perspective and things to reflect on for day and weeks to come."
Director, International Organisation
"I initially contacted Nick in 2006 because I needed guidance and coaching in my career. Working with Nick has given me the confidence to discuss complex issues with senior management and customers in my role as project manager; enabled me to produce a business case to achieve a promotion; supported me when producing self-evaluations for appraisals – and receiving a bonus owing to the quality of evidence provided. Nick continues to be my career/life coach which also involves discussing a wide range of subjects to support me not only in my role as a project manager but personally too. This has led to a broadening of my outlook and expanding my knowledge."
Ursula Zajac: Senior Project Manager, British Telecom
"I have been working with Nick for a number of months, during this time Nick has helped me improve a number of areas in my thinking and awareness. He has done this through perceptive insight, challenging questioning and a very in depth library of resources and techniques that he uses to help you cement the learning from each session. He has a patient manner and is very approachable and appears to really care about his clients well being. I can thoroughly recommend Nick to anyone."
"I like working with Nick as he has an easy manner and is someone who can be trusted. I feel I can draw upon his skills and knowledge to help me and I have enjoyed working with him to develop a deeper understanding of myself. Even though I had great self-awareness there are things which we have discussed which have been put into perspective and I am now able to look at issues more realistically without self-blame."

Jenni Hircock: Senior HR Partner
"The greatest benefit I had from the coaching was getting the job that I went for! Subsequently, after one year working with the police I used the service again. I was looking to further my career and use my past experience of local government and the arts. I applied for my current job and was successful once again. My career coach saw me through the whole process, building my confidence along the way"
"Career coaching has been enormously helpful in enabling me to clarify the things that are important to me, both in terms of my work/life balance and my overall career. Nick has also helped me to identify my strengths and take the steps to address the long-hours habit I had entered into. The coaching has helped me work out where I truly want to be in my life and given me additional insight and confidence to help me to get there"
Head of Finance
"The coaching sessions were a formal opportunity to escape the day-to-day work regime, to take a step back, review my career and situation, and to create a roadmap for the future to guide me"
"I will never forget how empowering our coaching sessions were and constantly recommend you to friends who are at a crossroads. I am now in my second year of nurse training, I passed my first year with very high academic marks but more importantly - a number of job offers and an offer of publication for one of my essays. I genuinely believe I would not have achieved this without the confidence and insights I gained during our sessions. Thank you again for the helping me to uncover my potential and purpose in life!"
Deborah Stocker: Nurse
"Nick was a super coach able to provide constructive input, experience and insight and some 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."
Head of International Education Strategy, Welsh Assembly Government
"The coaching process has boosted my confidence in my ability to be an effective leader and and I am no longer anxious about being a Country Director. It has helped me be more self-aware, particularly in the area of challenging patterns of unhelpful behavior. Through Coaching I have been able to improve the management of myself, especially under stress and learned strategies to manage upwards. Coaching has helped me to feel confident in who I am and that I am on the right track."
Country Director Tanzania, Concern Worldwide
"Coaching has increased my self-awareness and given me the inspiration to re-evaluate myself, my values, my career and personal aspirations."
"I have been working with Nick for a number of months, during this time Nick has helped me improve a number of areas in my thinking and awareness.
