You are amazing

“This course changed my attitude towards myself. Before I was hiding and now I’m treating myself with more kindness. You are amazing. You opened up this opportunity for deeper self-discovery. Thank you.”   Participant, July’s 7-Day Journalling Challenge

Your sessions were little gems – each a complete and special encounter


Thank you for hosting the writing group Nicky – your sessions were inspirational and thoughtfully created by you – much hard work I think went into your prep . Your weekly sessions were little gems – each a complete and special encounter. Each poem had a significant relevance for our times and the sessions we shared.  Writing helped me be more receptive to the positives in my environment.

Experienced and contemplative coach

Nicky is a very contemplative coach who gave me plenty of time to answer the incisive questions she asks. She is an experienced coach who uses her tools to full advantage and helped me gain a deeper understanding of my new venture.

Master Coach

Nicky was refreshing and upbeat, She drew out my goals and challenges and helped me frame them as adventures which appealed to my extrovert nature. Watching and working with her was, at times, like watching a Master Coach in action.

Nicky made the session so welcoming and intimate

We shared prompts and helpful tips about journaling. The fact that Nicky made the session so welcoming and intimate helped me to open up and let the writing flow!

I appreciate your time and preparation and most of all your originality

I appreciate the time you take to prepare each session, the tips and links you give me and most of all your originality. The fact that you call my imagination into action, I believe, will be helpful to reach my learning goals. You carefully listen to me and then ask me to identify the mistake that I made before giving advice. That is very reassuring and will have a positive impact on my confidence. I liked the flow of our conversation. Just the right rhythm.

Nicky’s sessions are thoughtfully planned and seem to flow seamlessly.

Start the Week Write sessions has helped open my mind after 40 years of 9-5 routines and allowed my creative thinking to flow onto the pages of my notebook.

Nicky’s sessions are thoughtfully planned and seem to flow seamlessly. The writing techniques are helpful in stimulating motivation to write when no apparent urge is forthcoming. I like the way Nicky as facilitator places herself within the group and is part of the circle of voices joining in reflections.  Nicky has created a safe space for opening up my mind and introduced a new way of expressing feelings, thoughts and ideas.
