Important Information: 

Credible Coach provides data and insights into both personal and professional coaches. For potential clients, transparency is essential in making an informed decision about hiring a coach. Credibility is established by examining a coach's past client success, their experience, training, and the ethics of their sales and marketing techniques. The coaching industry is largely unregulated—anyone can call themselves a coach without prior experience or qualifications. To enhance transparency in the coaching industry, we vet coaches and post the results on a live Credible Coach webpage for additional authenticity. The Credible Coach contacts past clients directly, conducts online and background checks, and verifies coaching certificates.

What Is Coaching? 

Coaching is unlocking your potential to maximise your own performance. It is more often helping you to learn rather than teaching you. As experts in behaviour change, coaches help you identify your goals and become your own expert in how to achieve them. Coaching can be a useful tool in today's challenging world of business. Companies are merging, restructuring and people change jobs far more than before -- some suddenly find themselves in careers that lack meaning or that don't use their full potential. Having a coach gives you the opportunity to reflect on the changes you have made and the direction your career is heading -- resulting in gaining clarity about the path you want to take. Everyone has unique strengths and abilities -- coaches help clients tap into their core values so they can reach their full potential.

Who would work best with Nicole

• As a female leader or professional, you feel that your potential is being stifled—that you want so much more from your career and life, but either do not know where to begin or lack the confidence and vision to pursue it.

• You often neglect your own needs and find yourself people-pleasing. This is affecting your life and wellbeing.

• You may have doubts about yourself, your fears limit you, and you have a lot to offer if you weren't restricted by all these self-imposed limits.

• You would like to become more optimistic about your future and focus on what can be done instead of what cannot.

Who wouldn't work best with Nicole

• If you are only seeking training in leadership skills or job-related skills this wouldn't be the best intervention for you. Nicole can offer advice when needed, but the focus of the coaching will be on you. In the coaching world, we believe that you are a resourceful person, and that you hold the answers that you need, but need some help getting them.

• If you're looking to be diagnosed or treated for any mental health conditions. Therapists/ counselors are trained to help you process trauma and cope with depression or mood disorders that severely impact your well being. Coaching focuses on your mental growth, helping them move towards desired results.

• You are a student, retired person or unemployed. Although coaching can be used with people at all stages of life, we have not been able to locate any past clients in these demographics.

Sian Davies, September 2021

What drew you to Nicole's services?
I was drawn to Nicole's compassion, patience and understanding. During our first session, I felt truly listened to and was confident in her ability to help and support me address my challenges.

What was your biggest challenge prior to working with Nicole?
My biggest challenge was not feeling good enough or worthy of achieving success. Because of this, I found I put other people's needs and desires before my own and would overthink my interactions with them. I felt swamped, was very critical of myself and fearful about my future.

What changed after working with Nicole?
I do not overthink to the extent I used to; I can now recognise when I am about to and stop myself from doing so. I feel more confident in saying no and establishing space between myself and others. I also feel calmer and I act rather than react to situations.

What specific results can you share?
I am much more productive, setting realistic goals which I achieve. I have gained the confidence I needed to make a life-changing decision that has had a positive impact on my health and wellbeing.

What would you say to someone on the fence about purchasing Nicole's services?
I would recommend engaging in an introductory session. They can then see for themselves how knowledgeable Nicole is as a coach; how well she listens and interacts and how she instils confidence and reassurance in you.
"I feel I am a better version of myself. Calmer and considerate to myself and that was what was missing."

Amanda Cornish, November 2021

What drew you to Nicole's services?
I attended one of Nicole's standalone zoom sessions and found her very inspirational. I felt it was a process that would help me to move forward with a purpose and also to focus on my own needs instead of putting everyone else first.

What was your biggest challenge prior to working with Nicole?
For me, it was allowing myself to put myself first and admit this would be good for me.

What changed after working with Nicole?
I have found out the importance of taking time to work through decisions or processes without jumping in feet first. Nicole has also shown me techniques of dealing with situations that support my needs rather than being the 'yes' woman for everyone around me. I feel so much calmer and I'm able to look into feelings, situations that would previously have caused me to stress or become upset. It really has been life-changing.

What specific results can you share?
I feel I am a better version of myself. Calmer and considerate to myself and that was what was missing. My life was so busy pleasing everybody else that I was literally worn out physically and emotionally. I am now able to stop and work through the most productive and kind way to myself to deal with whatever comes up daily.

What would you say to someone on the fence about purchasing Nicole's services?
Stop thinking about the what if's and give it a go. You will find the real you.

What was your biggest challenge prior to working with Nicole?
Initially opening up was difficult.

What changed after working with Nicole?

I feel much more confident can clearly see where the issues began and that they were someone else's issues pushed onto me as a child.

What would you say to someone on the fence about purchasing Nicole's services?
Do it you have nothing to lose and a whole lot to gain it could be the beginning of a new you.

Tracy Watkins, September 2021

What drew you to Nicole's services?
I initially sought coaching due to a change in career and later continued my coaching to support me through the break-up of my marriage.

What was your biggest challenge prior to working with Nicole?
Removing self-talk that I would be able to get through significant changes on my own without support. Being prepared to potentially become emotional in front of someone else. Discussing the finer details of the reasons behind very large decisions I had made in my life and facing an uncertain future for my children and I.

What changed after working with Nicole?
I have considerable clarity around my change in career and my plans for moving my business forward. I have a business strategy in place and have shifted the focus of this after realising a major factor and exploring other key skills that I had forgotten I have. I have also moved forward very positively after my break-up and can say hand on heart that my children and I are really happy and excited about our new future together.

What specific results can you share?
I have left a hands-on career in schools to move in to an IT profession. I have taken on new clients in my business, a new contract in IT consultancy, a new contract facilitating post 16 qualifications. I have built new skills in developing eLearning and other training resources for businesses, and developing and delivering website solutions.

What would you say to someone on the fence about purchasing Nicole's services?
If you are really ready to make positive change in your life than embrace this as an opportunity, as change will happen. There were times in the coaching when I just thought I was making things up to satisfy the weirdly wonderful questions I was being asked, this was not the case at all. My coach had me working at an unconscious level and the realisation and harnessing of this was incredibly powerful. I am the happiest I have ever been having been in a very dark and anxious place. My life is completely different and I would not have achieved this without careful and powerful coaching.

More than 650 coaching schools exist around the world, and the number is growing. Some courses can be completed online in a few hours without any end assessment, while others require hundreds of coaching hours and supervision. A list of professional bodies and coaching registers can be found at the bottom of the page. Coaching certifications are earned by undergoing intensive training at a coaching training company, working closely with a mentor coach, and demonstrating your coaching abilities.
Nicole's training has been accredited by the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC). EQA ensures that successful students meet the research-based competence standards presented in the EMCC Competency Framework.

How is the research conducted?

We initially collect proof of coaches' training certificates, conduct an online and background check, and probe deep into the areas where their past clients most likely reside to find their feedback too. We then personally gather feedback from past clients and do further research on those types of clients to discover who works best with the coach and what they are recommended for.

What's the goal of Credible Coach?

We want to give you all the information you need to make an informed decision. The industry has become more advanced in terms of sales and marketing, so it can be difficult to know who is providing quality work and who isn't. We'll only work with coaches who provide proof of their claims, which have been checked and verified by our team. We want to protect you and ensure you only work with coaches who stand out from the crowd by providing exceptional coaching experiences to their clients. 

Are coaches held accountable on Credible Coach?

Yes, this is why each coach has a link to our website, not a PDF report. As a result, we can continually ensure that coaches are held to a high standard and maintain a continuous feedback loop. If a complaint is received, we will investigate it immediately.

Why is Credible Coach independent?

It is our role to research and present our findings objectively. We aren't affiliated with any particular coaching body or school. By doing so, we remain impartial.
