About Nicola Semple

I am an exceptional and experienced Career and Confidence Coach and an ex-Business Change Consultant with a Big 4 background. My favourite snippets of client feedback are “infectiously driven and straightforward”, “kind, insightful, but doesn’t let me off the hook” and “we covered some tough topics, but I always left our sessions with energy, and a sense that I had fun!”

If you are looking for a Coach who will have you out of bed at 4.30 am undertaking a gruelling morning routine to set you up for #success and #smashyourgoals, you won’t want to work with me.

If you are looking for a Coach who will ask open questions and allow you to go around in circles reflecting for hours on end (but getting nowhere), you won’t want to work with me either.

If you are looking for somebody to help you unravel the spaghetti in your head, help you get clear on what you want from your career and life, and support you so that you do the work to get it, we should talk!
