Nick guides people to dig deep within themselves to find truth. To look back through their lives and see the things that have blocked them from feeling purpose and fulfilment.
– This is done by using a holistic approach to creating emotional dexterity, physical and nutritional balance and mindfulness practices.
Nick truly believes that whenever two people are together in a safe, honest and willing space, deep bonds and connections are made. When these connections are made a level of accountability is created. When this is done one then has the necessary incentive to seek positive transformation.
Nick uses adaptable and practical tools customised to individual needs to unblock and stay unblocked. He creates the space for the inner strength we all have deep down within us – that “Fire in the Belly”- to ignite.
Really, he is just a N.E.A.T (nice, empathetic, accountable , tender) guy who shares his experience through trusting and vulnerable conversions that enables him to motivate people to do the personal work they need to do on themselves so that they can flourish.
