These days, it can be easy to to appear calm on the surface while underneath you’re secretly paddling like mad…just to keep up!

But this often means sacrificing what matters most…to YOU!

So if you’ve been scratching your head and wondering why all the hallmarks of success have left you feeling lost, or stuck, or unfulfilled…

Everyone is brilliant at ‘something’…but what does this mean for you?

And did you know this often sits in a blindspot which can make it almost impossible to see?

“Your purpose is to find your gift and transform into the best possible version of yourself, so you can help transform those around you.”

The Inner-Genius Project is for those who want to claim their brilliance & discover a practical approach to finding their purpose, so they can start to feel more inspired & in-control in their work & personal lives.

These days, it can be easy to find yourself feeling uninspired, or overwhelmed, as you battle the daily pressures of ‘business-as-usual’.

But this often means feeling lost, or stuck, as you struggle to find the deeper sense of meaning & fulfilment you want!

And yet somehow deep down in your bones, you know there’s something ‘more’ out there that you were simply born to do

The Inner-Genius Project has been specifically designed to wake up this calling in you and provide you with a step-by-step process to create your own personal roadmap to becoming clear on your purpose so you can bring this to life.

It will also help you to build both the skills and muscles you’ll need to breakthrough whatever’s been holding you back!

Finding your purpose is not difficult to do, if you know where to look, and once you begin to discover this for yourself you’ll find the clarity & confidence to decide the next steps to take.


Nicola’s Inner-Genius Program appealed to me from the outset due to the positive emphasis on each person having something worthy of discovery rather than finding a flaw to be fixed.

After years living at a hectic place and then dealing with some personal challenges, I was sensing the need for a shift, so I sought Nicola’s help to get clear about what i wanted professionally and personally.

Nicola’s program was easy to engage with, the tools and activities pin-pointed values and strengths and the follow-up sessions were jam packed with insightful moments leading ultimately to my inner genius statement.

As a result of Nicola’s program, I have become pro-active in changing direction toward a future that ‘fits ‘ and energises me.

The clarity I’ve gained during the process has been a game changer for me.

I’ve already put the wheels in motion and I’m so excited to finally be heading in the direction that feels like the most authentic fit at this phase of my life.

Thank you, Nicola – you and your program have been the key to shining the light on my inner genius!

I had worked in a corporate career for years but wanted to find something more personally fulfilling but had no idea what that might be.

To be honest, I had been feeling pretty burned out for a while, but was good at what I did and also didn’t want to compromise on any of the ‘success’ I had already built.

I finally found Nicola after a colleague referred her and was attracted to her extensive background as a high performance coach within the corporate arena.

Together, she helped me clarify where my unique strengths lie and even more importantly, what I enjoy most and brings out my ‘spark’.

This was the wake-up call!

This lead to an easy transition as we re-crafted my current career path, and I have since transitioned into a new role which is so much more ‘me’ and I’ve never been happier.

I feel like a whole new person with this new understanding about myself and what brings out the best in me, and and my energy levels have gone up again and I feel excited about moving forwards.

The future is bright!

Thank you Nicola – you helped me find my ‘true north’.

I had been running my own business for a long time, but it was starting to feel like it was running me so I wanted to make a change. 

I was fairly unhappy when I started working with Nicola as my business was doing O.K. but I had lost my passion for it and was mostly running on auto-pilot and lacking any real clarity about how to take it forwards.

Plus I was finding it hard to figure out where to focus my time, as I was constantly worrying about the business and everyone else.

The Inner-Genius Project helped me to re-discover my passion, which surprisingly had changed over the years.

Plus, I had a couple of things to work through in terms of shifting my mindset, but once we unlocked my inner-genius, everything just sort of fell into place.

The practical tools and exercises made it really easy to follow along and then in our coaching sessions, Nicola really helped me to turn the business into something which could work for me – instead of the other way around.

So at long last my passion is back, and that’s a great feeling!
