“I have a well-developed and vociferous Inner Critic which gave rise over the years to an almost ever-present “Not Good Enough” and “Must Do Better” vibe. My life consisted largely of an exhausting upstream struggle driven by this: one in which I constantly sought validation and approval from others. Any criticism, negative feedback or perceived failure would result in feelings of worthlessness and recurrent episodes of depression.
Various self-help books and counselling/therapy sessions facilitated me in identifying and understanding this, but, sadly, did not make many significant in-roads into muting the Critic and giving me a more easeful life.
Just one session with Nicholas tapped into something deep in my sub-conscious and suddenly the Critic was muffled. What remained of her voice was now clothed in kinder and more compassionate tones.
I HIGHLY recommend Nicholas’s approach and expertise to anyone dealing with issues similar to those described above. He was able to pave the way for me to access my own sub-conscious: to lock down some unhelpful parts of it and to release something softer, kinder and full of hope and light.
I can imagine this approach being relevant and constructive in any less-than-satisfying areas in life. The sub-conscious is potent, yet elusive. Within it lies the power to change our lives, but often we need the help of someone like Nicholas to tap into this. Nicholas is approachable, intuitive, calm and wise and…WHAT HE DOES REALLY WORKS!!“
The doctors wouldn't operate on my hernia unless I lost 2 stone. I went to Nicholas and we worked on the root causes of why I couldn't lose the weight. He used a combination of coaching techniques and hypnosis and it felt very supportive and focused on my individual situation. I can't pinpoint exactly what it was that changed, I just know that within 3 months I lost the 2 stone and had a successful operation! Better still the weight isn't going back on. I feel fantastic!
Coaching with Nicholas has been the catalyst in helping me to redefine my thinking around an area which previously I felt almost resigned to not being able to change. Nicholas was extremely thoughtful and supportive in his approach and enabled me to challenge preconceived ideas that were limiting me.
Nicholas encouraged me to think creatively with a no limits licence for my imagination, which was exciting. The old unhelpful ways of thinking have gone – for good! – and new and exciting ways of thinking have taken their place. This all happened in just one session and I have now taken action to make concrete changes in my life and feel a sense of momentum and energy propelling me forward towards where I desire to be, which is a fantastic feeling, after being so stuck for so long.
