My approach is shaped by my learning in both psychological and body based theories and concepts.These methods are evidence based and grounded in scientific research. I do not only work with your emotional brain but also your emotional body. It has been proven that our bodies also feel and can hold onto emotions. I aim to not only provide psycho-education on how to grow your Emotional Intelligence (EQ) and supply you with effective tools and techniques used to enhance your performance but to also help people realise the importance of the field of mental coaching in sport. There is unfortunately still a lot of stigma around mental health and mental training, especially in athletics. I strive to dispel such stigma and show the many benefits of accessing psychotherapy can offer.
Since working with Nicola I have gotten to understand myself and some of my behaviours much better. This understand allows me to be kinder to myself & improve how I deal with anxiety. She has given me effective tools I can use in training and at competitions which have meant I’ve been able to perform well even on days I’ve not felt mentally great. I also use the techniques she’s taught me to manage anxiety in day to day life. I’m extremely grateful for her guidance.

I’ve constantly looked to improve my game as a semi professional footballer, through nutrition, recovery, conditioning. However I’ve noticed the biggest change in my game once I started seeing Nicola. I feel more confident than ever, I understand my thought process and what I need to do to perform to my full potential.
