Nikki’s clients describe her coach approach as an effective combination of encouraging support and honest challenge. Before becoming a coach, Nikki worked in leadership roles in Media and IT recruitment, when she turned 30, she took a year out of the corporate world to run a luxury chalet in Verbier with her husband so they could take full advantage of some of the best slopes in the Alps. Since starting a family, Nikki has traded in her snowboard for a paddle board and you’ll often find her on the water in downtime.
"I have worked with Nikki as a member of the Psychologies magazine team for five years. She is driven, creative and trustworthy. As Psychologies in-house coach, she has given invaluable advice for readers and has worked with me personally in coaching sessions. Nikki has really helped me to overcome obstacles, gain confidence and work out a clearer direction. Each session has had really clear outcomes and set me on the path to achieving what I want and how to get there. I really recommend Nikki."
"I worked with Nikki at Psychologies magazine for several years, and was always impressed with her drive and passion for the work she does. As in-house coach for Psychologies, Nikki has coached me on a personal level, in areas of career and confidence...and what a revelation it has been! Nikki helped me recognise all that I have to offer which included time spent working through my CV, highlighting key qualities that I can offer potential clients and also helped with tweaking my social media platforms to help me stand out. Nikki held me accountable to ensure I took the steps towards my goals and I felt like she was really behind me along the way, cheering me on. Nikki is also a creative thinker and helped me change my perspective on how I approached my career, and has ultimately guided me towards a more fulfilling life. Thank you so much Nikki!"
"I contacted Nikki in a panic for an emergency coaching session because I had to make a swift decision over an important matter. Within half an hour, she helped me unpick the complexities and see my choice in alignment with my values. Once I realised that my values should underpin my decision, it was easy to choose what was right for me. Nikki is a compassionate and clear minded coach, she calmly brought me to a peaceful state where I could make my decision with clarity and confidence. Thank you again, Nikki"
"Having a personal coaching session with Nikki was one of the most pivotal things I've done in adulthood. After an easy and natural chat, she reflected back to me things I was saying over and over without realising. This, added to the physical processes that we 'stepped' through, really brought clarity to a junction that I'd been stuck at for years and her guidance in showing me that I really knew, deep down, what I wanted to do, enabled me to feel brave enough to make powerful career changes which have transformed my life."
"I'm not dealing with myself very well at all lately. I have a constant struggle with mortality, judging and being judged, doing what is deemed to be the right thing, not appearing weak to anyone I meet and generally coming to grips with who I am. Nikki is helping me work through these things. It's early days yet but already I can see things a little clearer. She has a good way of enabling you to answer your own questions, is very supportive and I'm confident of a cathartic and life changing experience "
"Nikki was engaging from the very moment I met her, she not only listened with ears but her eyes too. I felt very comfortable speaking to her and she asked questions that stimulated thoughts and ideas that I had not really processed before. Nikki was patient, got me back on track and the structure of our session flowed so well. Nikki is very professional, personable and genuine. I really did feel energised and positive about what I would do after our coaching session. Thank you Nikki, you have helped me find a clear and defined path to achieving my goal."
"In one hour Nikki was able to do more for me than other coaches have been able to do over weeks and months. She doesn’t just listen, she reads between the lines, hearing all the things that you don’t say and helping you realise what the ‘actual’ issue is (Hint: it’s not always what you originally go to her with!) I went into the session feeling stuck and overwhelmed and I came out with absolute confidence, mental clarity and like I had my own personal cheerleader in my pocket. Her suggestion to get outside and coach in nature was also brilliant and brought a whole new dimension to my previous experiences of coaching. I can’t recommend Nikki highly enough."
"Nikki is an intuitive, skilful and considerate coach; enabling me to find mobility when I was stuck; to unlock long forgotten strengths and set me on a positive path for the future. I highly recommend Nikki to anybody wishing to go on an exciting journey of personal and professional exploration. "
"I have had the privilege of working with some of the top coaches in the world but I chose Nikki to be our team coach. She’s intuitive and tunes into the real issue underneath the problem that might be presenting in your life. She then helps you devise a plan to make things happen. She’s funny, kind and inspirational."
"In just a few sessions, Nikki's coaching has helped me immensely. Through compassionate conversation, she guides me to find my own solutions and focus on positive emotions to follow my dreams. After already experiencing beneficial changes from our work together, I feel empowered and supported."
"Nikki helped me set a vision for the future, challenged my limiting beliefs and held me accountable to my plan- all delivered in a supportive and encouraging style. I left my coaching sessions with her energised and ready to take action. Thank you Nikki."
"I booked a coaching session with Nikki, I was feeling overwhelmed and flooded with ideas of what to do next. I get excited by new ideas but find it difficult to prioritise. I presented Nikki with an A3 sheet filled with lists of things I could do next. She listened carefully to me as I talked through my plans, asked a few questions and quickly got to the heart of the problem, part of which is my ability to ask for help when I need it. I now feel clearer about what I want to do. So, thank you, Nikki"
