About BraveHeart


Nicola has worked in the area of people development for over eighteen years within a number of different business sectors. Five years was spent in the charitable sector both overseas and in the United Kingdom, five years within the healthcare sector and most recently eight years in the private sector. Throughout her career, Nicola has shown those who work with her that her overriding passion is to facilitate development and growth in those around her.

Nicola has mentored and led people all throughout her life. Over the last few years this passion and strength has taken the form of coaching and facilitation. Nicola believes that people have a right to choose their own future and enables others to excel in all areas of life.

BraveHeart Adoption Coaching was started in 2010 with an aim to enable those living with adopted children to not lose sight of themselves within their parenting. Along with her husband Nicola adopted three beautiful children in May 2008. This has inspired her to coach others going through the adoption process. Her desire is to see more people adopt, those people to experience a smooth process and to thrive not just survive as a family.

The style of coaching that Nicola majors in is co-active coaching. Co-activity will help someone reach the goals they have in their life. There will be challenge, insight, accountability and fun! Coaching is not advice or mentoring, or even support - it is a process that allows people to find their own answers to the areas they struggle with in their lives.
