A Note From Me

I discovered coaching and NLP fifteen years ago during a time when I was very stuck.

I found it extraordinarily powerful, life affirming and uplifting, unlike any therapy or counselling I had experienced before. 

I knew then I would devote my life's work to helping others find the happiness and success they deserved. 

Once I finished my training I set up a small practice in Drayson Mews in Kensington and started seeing clients 1:1.

It was the most rewarding, positive and uplifting experience I've ever had. I was helping people achieve their dreams and aspirations in all areas of their lives. 

I feel alive and energised when working with my clients. The feedback is amazing, and when it comes in years after the sessions and I get to learn how my clients have gone on to achieve their dreams I feel so proud and happy.

Beautiful safe space to express ourselves

I can be quite introverted, but 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 wasn’t sure what to expect as all of the sessions were on Zoom, but I needn’t of worried as Nina has such mastery at making every individual of the group feel seen, heard and valued.

A life-time self-improvement toolkit

I was intrigued by Nina’s boutique-type training offering, as I would polish my Coaching skills, I was using as an executive and as a consultant, in the business world. At a time where there was plenty of uncertainty (Covid) and I felt overwhelmed, I got: A lifetime self-improvement toolkit, an upgraded mindset, some significant shadow work integration (ongoing), purposeful steps in work related evolution and life itself.

The course is brilliantly designed. Nina connects the dots as you learn & practice in tandem. In the process you add a definite layer of experiential sophistication from a skilful field Teacher.
