'Do more of what you love and less of what you don't'

Hello I'm Nicky, thank you for stopping by. 

I have created my own pic 'n' mix of work and life and very much embody the portfolio career.

Eclectic, varied, interesting and always creative.

I trained as an actor and have enjoyed career spanning 25 years. 

  I am a huge believer in defining 'success' on your terms and through my coaching, writing and speaking I get to empower others to do the same.

Plus I am a mum of a toddler so life is full, noisy and often covered in rice cakes.

Whatever you want is possible for you too... we all just need to say it out loud and then build a plan of action. 

We all work too hard to play small.

You can book me for acting work, 1:1 coaching, commission me for writing projects, invite me to speak at your event or collaborate with me in another creative way (PR friendly)... just keep scrolling...

Work with me

what would be useful?

As an experienced 'slasher' aka actor, coach, writer and speaker, there are many ways I can add value. Also I am a mother...but I don't get paid for that- well not in dosh! 

I have a dedicated 'services' page where I share my coaching packages, my online programmes and products. You can also use my 'contact page' to share your request. Please give me as much information as you can and myself or one of my team will get back to you shortly. 

yEP, i LOVE TO TALK...

My acting background has served me well... as a coach I am often invited to be a speaker/expert panelist.

Recents talks have been at Google, Warrior Woman Project (in association with DOVE) Kingston University and I'More women in business. Themes you could expect are women in business, motherhood and freelancing, creativity, managing a portfolio career and having an idea and making it happen aka THE PLAN. 

IRL

I love live events...I even like networking (I know!)

Find out more about my current calendar of events or find out how I can add enormous value to yours. 

Where it all began...

I have been an actor for 25 years and worked in TV, film, theatre and commercial. Click below to access my Spotlight link and agent details.

Plus as a featured expert for The Stage and Surviving Actors you can find lots of helpful resources for actors including videos, blogs and online programmes. I wrote a book called 'Be Ready for your Lucky Break' and I am frequently invited to host talks that help actors to build their strategy for their dream career. 

my story

I hail from Lincolnshire...

I left home at 18 and headed for the bright lights drama school.

At 35 I am still here and live with my partner of ten years and our toddler son. These days I only do work that I love; I combine my skills in a way that suits me and allows me also to be a present parent. I have found my own groove... but it wasn't always like this. In fact there have been many bumps which gives me a great understanding and empathy when coaching my clients. 

Talk to me

I know coaching is a serious investment. I know because I do it myself.

If you have questions, please email your details and upon request an introductory call will be set up.

I am a personal performance coach

I am frequently hired to work with business organisations and often specialise in the 'Life after maternity leave niche' to empower ambitious mothers at work. I also have a number of online options for self study. Strategic, practical, holistic and warm. No nylon suits and patronising pashminas here! I promise I won't make you whoop and high five me!

Yes....this floats my boat
