What can I expect from a coaching session?
First and foremost, I want to make it clear to you that every session is tailored to you. No coaching session is the same because your story and your problems are unique to you and therefore different to anyone else if that makes sense.
That said, I can give you a general outline how it works. The way I coach is structured around 60 minutes sessions. I’ll start by getting to know your story and your struggle. I’ll make sure I understand, clarify, ask questions and challenge you when needed. This is all needed so that we can figure out exactly where your problem lies and what you think deserves attention first. When we've got all that, various coaching techniques and processes can be introduced throughout the session.
We can work on confidence, anxiety, relationship issues, lack of direction in life, struggling with difficult thoughts, etc. But what we need to work on first totally depends on your story, so that’s why we have to start there first. In general, as the sessions continue, you should start to develop skills to move more flexibly towards the life you want, regardless of how you feel, or what you think. I want you to leave the session with an action plan: something practical to take away and to actively make a difference in your life.

WHY CHOOSE NICK, THE HABIT COACH?
What makes the Habit Coach stand out to most other life coaches basically boils down to three things.
In addition to being a certified life coach, Nick is also a ACT therapist registered with the Association for Contextual Behavioural Science (ABCS) and an accredited NLP Practitioner.
- Academic background
Nick has got a MSc in Consumer Studies, received ABA training as a behaviour therapist and in the past couple years, undertook several (intermediate and advanced) training courses in ACT, acceptance and commitment therapy. That said, coaching and ACT is a very experiential and active experience. During (and after) sessions you'll spend a lot of time practicing skills, not just talking about your problems.
- Relevant experience
Nick tries to practice what he preaches and this is reflected in the work that he has done. His passion about providing guidance and support to individuals willing to make a change and exploring their potential can be traced back to his previous roles as a behavioural therapist (ABA therapist), an outdoor pursuit instructor and trainer where he worked with young learners and provide support to build their confidence and spark their aspirations.
In addition, Nick's coaching style can be characterised as:
