Case Studies

Improving my confidence - Student Enrolment Officer

Carmela felt under confident and unhappy in herself

She wanted to feel 10/10 for confidence and feel happier in herself

After 4 sessions, Carmela's confidence grew. In particular Carmela noticed improvements in her personal relationships and work. So much so that she had the confidence to apply for a new job and got it!

"I am now more confident in things I do in everyday life with regards to personal relationships and work and I have even got a new job as a result to believing in myself that I can do more than I think I can instead of hiding away.

I would recommend coaching to anyone who doesn't have the confidence in themselves or just needs a nudge in the right direction if they want to change something about their life."

"I am glad I did the sessions as I am a much happier person and I have a constant sparkle about me now which others have noticed too!" (Carmela, Member of Staff at a Further Education College in Hertfordshire)

Making my ideas achievable - Staff Development Manager

Max dreamed of buying a property in Spain and running her first 5k run.

Max needed the motivation to get going with her plans and keep on track.

During the 6 sessions of coaching Max identified where her motivations lay and how to reignite them. Max took the steps each week to fulfilling her dreams, including running that 5k and putting a deposit on a plot of land in Spain!

"I have thoroughly enjoyed working with my coach. The coaching scheme has totally opened up my eyes to how achievable your dreams/ideas are" (M. Lambe, Staff Development Manager at a College in South London)

Getting motivated and back on track - Student

David was on his last chance at college and was in danger of getting thrown off his course.

He wanted to get motivated again to stay on course.

David completed a 6 week coaching programme and together with his coach, worked out what he needed to do to get back on track. The results were immediate and amazing.

"Life Coaching has been a massive help and has helped me to turn my life around. I have learnt a lot about how to motivate myself, improve my confidence and get things done. I've learned to not leave it, to set out a target and get it done within a time period. I would recommend life coaching to everyone, it has been a positive thing in my life and has really helped me prepare for the future" (D. Hancoch, Student, Further Education College in Hertfordshire).

Moving my career in the right direction so it is fulfilling in itself! -Dad of Two

Kevan was fed up in his job and felt he had lost his direction. He had previously been made redundant and now found himself in a job that he did not like.

He wanted something more fulfilling.

Kevan completed a 12 week coaching programme that explored his options and what really got him fired up.

At the end of the 12 weeks, Kevan had got a new job, was starting a qualification and loved going to work again!

"Coaching has been an amazing experience for me, and has given me the tools that enable me to cope with anything life throws at me! Nicola thankyou for rescuing my 2005!" (Kevan, Leeds)

Getting Clarity on different Areas in my Life - Investment Banker

Ana wanted to get clarity on her current job, her personal relationships and her finances.

She wanted to set a motivating goal in each area to help her move forward.

Three goals were worked on each week for 12 weeks which resulted in Ana being more effective and productive at work, improving her social circle and finally getting her finances in order.

"With a natural and genuine style, Nicola has been able to make me aware of what I truly wanted in different areas of my life, as well as to identify inefficiencies in the way I was working and taking decisions. Combining a very good sense of humour with high professional standards, Nicola helped me broaden the perspective with which I was looking at my current job, my personal relationships, and my finances. As a result of the coaching, now I am much more efficient with my time, I have more clarity of which are my priorities in life, and have increased my confidence when relating to others." (Ana B. Investment Banker in London)
