Hi! I'm Nicola. I have spent over 15 years working and training in the fields of therapy, training and coaching.
I trained in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy at the prestigious Clifton Practice, and have gained a Master Practitioner Level in Neurolinguistic Programming.
I discovered NLP in 2001completing 2 diplomas. It really struck a chord, so I advanced my training. Combining with hypnosis, it was the most efficient and positive form of therapy and coaching that I had experienced.
Following my NLP training, I sought the best Hypnotherapy training that I could find and discovered that the Solution-Focused approach has a powerful scientific backing, helping clients to move on with their lives without having to repeatedly re-live experiences from the past!
I continue my study keeping up-to-date with recent discoveries in neuroscience, and continued professional training including, amongst others:
I also attend regular supervision sessions as part of my professional code of conduct.
In addition to my practice, I run a smallholding in the beautiful Stroud valleys. I am a big fan of the outdoors and nature, and love exploring our local area with my dog and 2 children. I enjoy renovating our home and growing our own veg when I'm not with clients or advancing my studies!
Prior to becoming a mother of 2 and therapist, I was a director for a multi-national retailer.
I absolutely love my work, and it is such a thrill to see the positive, empowered changes happening in the lives of my clients. I am slightly obsessed by the wonderful workings and problems of our minds, our spiritual motivations as well as the science behind being human, and I often describe myself as a 'proper geek'!
I have a strong belief which tells me that everyone is capable of change, with the proper support and advice. We all need help sometimes and seeking it is one of the most powerful things you can ever do for yourself!
I can help you to achieve positive, sustainable changes in a relatively short time. I work with you, at a pace that suits you.
I am fully DBS checked and insured. I am a member of, and follow the Professional Code of Conduct of the Association for Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy (AFSFH). I am registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and INLPTA: The International NLP Trainers Association.
