Nicola Vanlint is a fully qualified integrative therapist helping people make full use of the power of mental coaching in sport – from elite and semi-pro athletes to amateurs and hobbyists.

Unfortunately, the stigma around mental health and mental training still lingers on, especially in athletics. Nicola strives to dispel such stigma by showing the many benefits that psychotherapy can offer.

For over 15 years, she has been helping clients grow in confidence, achieve their goals, strengthen their performance and improve their overall well-being.

To provide her clients with effective tools and techniques to power up their performance and grow their Emotional Intelligence (EQ), every aspect of Nicola’s practice model is underpinned by neuroscience and informed by evidence-based therapies.

Integrative therapy sits at the core of this offering. It involves selecting techniques from different psychological orientations to best suit a client’s particular needs.
