Nina Madden - Master Coach, Life Coach, NLP & EMDR Therapist 


Coaching & Therapy with NLP, EMDR & IFS

Alongside being the founder of the Courage Coaching Academy, I am the NLP Master Coach, Life Coach, and EMDR Therapist for people who want practical help to change their life fast.

I have over fifteen years experience and thousands of clinical hours spanning issues such as anxiety, depression, ptsd, domestic violence, anger issues, conflict, hidden addictions and a lack of lust for life. 

Being an intelligent high achiever it can be hard to find a therapist that doesn't make you feel patronised or judged and who is capable of understanding your situation. 

I use a unique blend of EMDR, NLP and Coaching to help you get to the core and create the happiness and success you deserve.

Whether you wish to heal the past or focus on creating a new future, I am here to help.

Beautiful safe space to express ourselves

 Nina created this beautiful space where we felt safe to express our thoughts and feelings freely and as such we grew together, celebrated each other and had formed deep friendships by the end of the course.

I've been a Coach and NLP Master Practitioner for 20+ years

 I came to Nina because Courage Coaching Academy is approved by IFC and I wanted to become part of that. (my old coaching certification was not recognised and I wanted to refresh my NLP) If you're looking for a coach and they are Courage Coaching Academy trained you are with someone who knows what they are doing!
