nice to meet you


Hi, I'm Nicola

I Help high stress Individuals and Organizations
navigate uncertainty, change and adversity

Here's why I do what I do.

I do it because I strongly believe that the foundation of successful organizations lies in their people. By enhancing individuals’ resilience during challenges, I empower them to thrive. A healthy mindset not only benefits individuals but also fosters organizational flourishing, creating a positive cycle of growth and success. 


My story:
I was an overachiever who looked like I had it all together on the outside.

I have achieved significant milestones throughout my academic and professional journey. During my school years, I earned numerous accolades in both sports and academics. Following university, I occupied various prominent roles, including a tenure-track professor of computer science and innovative positions within software development companies across Ireland, the UK, and Canada. Later, I pursued an esteemed executive coaching course in the US, which equipped me to become an executive coach. I have since had the privilege to guide and support clients globally, sharing my expertise and passion for coaching.

The inside was a different story.

Externally, I seemed composed, but internally, I grappled with incessant pressure and anxiety. I was unable to handle setbacks, often dwelling on what-ifs and potential failures. My tendency to be overly self-critical made it challenging to step outside my comfort zone. Doubt and fear clouded my mind, disrupting my concentration and preventing me from finding fulfillment. I spent my time overworking and overthinking. 

Turning point!

Eventually, I reached a breaking point after years of relentless stress, prompting essential changes. Drawing from my experiences and research, I reverse-engineered the burnout process, leading to my book. More importantly, it resulted in resilience tools to handle uncertainty, change, and adversity. I also created a daily journal, derived from the book’s insights, to consistently incorporate these habits into my routine.

Today is a new story

Today, I find myself less reactive and more composed. Setbacks no longer paralyze me with overthinking; instead, I navigate my emotions and respond in healthier ways. I’ve embraced self-kindness and compassion, alleviating the pressure I used to burden myself with. I now celebrate victories without the cloud of pending tasks, and I’ve embraced the freedom to experiment and learn from failures. I have more tools to draw from to help me move forward with less fear and more joy.

I look forward to working with you.

My mission is to empower every individual and organization to embrace their authenticity with confidence and success. I am here as your ally, ready to provide the support and strategies you need. Let’s work together to unlock your full potential, helping you thrive. Your success story begins today, and I’m here to help you achieve it.

What if I fall?

Oh my Darling,
What if you could fly?
