Not everyone wants to admit to having sought out the services of a coach/trainer - but here is a snapshot of just a few I have worked with who were happy to share their thoughts on the experience.
"I want to thank Nicky for all the help and support she has given me. I went to Nicky in a 'stuck' state not sure of the direction I needed to take. Nicky quickly and easily helped me get to a place where I could make a decision that was congruent to me where I was able to gain clarity on my next steps. Now 3 months on, I have taken action and have been able to make things happen. I feel stronger, happier and clear on my path moving forward. When it comes to understanding minds and how to get the best out of yourself, Nicky has the ability to make you connect to yourself and let you come to new understandings. I would recommend Nicky to anyone. What I love about Nicky is her ability to listen, her total professionalism yet human touch. Nicky is generous with her time, engaging, passionate and extremely knowledgeable in her field. Anyone searching for a coach, I would recommend you get in touch with Nicky."

"Nicky is a natural coach and mentor across a number of fronts. Myself & my wife Tracy met Nicky through her brilliant Salsa mentoring programme. We very quickly came to realise that she had so much more in her toolkit to offer in the sphere of life mentoring & coaching. Nicky is perfectly comfortable working with individuals or large Corporates. With a niche now in Stress Management and from someone who has spent 24 years in a High Pressure Corporate environment Nicky comes highly recommended from myself & my wife Tracy. Give Nicky a call or contact me (Chrishenry@actioncoach.com) for more of my thoughts on someone who I fully respect as a fellow coach and now good friend."
Chris H, Action Coach, April 2017
"I've known Nicky for some time now and can honestly say that she is one of the most caring people when it comes to providing her training. Nicky is incredibly down to earth, warm and engaging and it's these attributes that enable her to deliver training in a way that is congruent and accessible for everyone she works with. As an award-winning trainer, I have no hesitation in recommending Nicky and her work."
Paul C, Paul Cartwright Training, August 2016
"I had the pleasure of working alongside Nicky for 9 months in the corporate wellbeing field. We used Nicky as an expert trainer delivering workshops for line managers around the topic of managing mental health concerns in the workplace and how to communicate effectively around this difficult topic. Nicky often presented to challenging groups but she has a unique ability to not only gain rapport with a group but drive engagement and deliver brilliant lasting results for businesses and individuals. By hiring Nicky you will be getting a real subject expert who takes time to understand her clients and their needs, tailor delivery accordingly and deliver an exceptionally high standard of service."
Richard V, Sales & Services Manager, July 2016
"It’s rare that you come across standout talent like Nicky. Few people have the opportunity to be mentored by such an outstanding coach - but Idid. I have had the pleasure of working with Nicky for the past 6 months and she has guided me through my career change and helped me to build my business from the ground up. Nicky has a beautiful way of guiding you and providing you with the space needed for you to collaborate your ideas. That skill often takes years to develop among service professionals, but it seemed to come perfectly naturally to her. She always makes sure that I completed my next challenge and checks in to see how well it went. Nicky earns my highest recommendation as a coach and mentor."
Christie B, Sales Account Manager, June 2016
"I've known Nicky in a personal and a professional capacity for about 15 years. She is one of the most focused, passionate and driven individuals I have ever met. She continually up skills to ensure her knowledge within her chosen field is not only relevant but that it places her (and quite rightly so), as the expert in her field. I would not hesitate to recommend Nicky as a proficient, extremely competent and reliable professional, make her your go to expert, I have on several occasions and will continue to do so!"
Mel C, Speciality Fitness Professional, May 2016
"Nicky is an outstanding trainer, and has infinite patience (even with students who are a little slower than most(me!). Nicky's training style makes any group feel at ease, and able to ask questions without fear of intimidation. Nicky's rapport skills are excellent, and every time I have watched Nicky training, it is very apparent that Nicky includes everyone in the group. A great Northern sense of humour comes across too, and I would highly recommend any of Nicky's training courses as guaranteed to be an enjoyable and fulfilling experience."
Steve A, Business Owner, Trainer, January 2016
"Nicky is professional, has true integrity and above all else, delivers great results. Our one-to-one sessions have truly helped me to transform my business. Her knowledge of language, instruction and empathetic style have given me a window to view myself and the decisionsI make. I'll be working with her for a long time to come!"
