Inclusive one-to-one life coaching and creative sessions that celebrate your whole lived experience. Online / In Person
Hey, I'm Nadia
Inclusive one-to-one life coach, wellbeing nurturer, creative services consultant, parent, carer, writer, speaker, storyteller.
I help individuals to lead colourful, creative, celebratory lives and feel calm, playful, connected, and present.
I specialise in coaching people with marginalised identities & experiences, and those raising people with marginalised identities. I also offer creative sessions to help individuals find the words to tell their story.
Sometime over the past few years, the penny finally dropped. You can be on your own private journey of healing, read all the books in the world, light candles and try yoga nidra, know exactly what you're supposed to do in theory, buy a million fresh notebooks, keep trying to sustain momentum by yourself... but there's nothing like the transformation and magic that can happen in our minds, bodies and souls when a kindred spirit supports us to fly!
I offer one-to-one life coaching that celebrates your whole lived experience, for wherever you are in your story right now. I'm here for the people who are done with going it alone, the people who are feeling worn by the world and who want to be the change and the radiance, who feel it all so deeply. The people whose energy ebbs and flows, whose momentum dips and wanes, who find it challenging to make time for themselves. The ones who think that coaching is maybe not for people like them. That there's no place for them to show up as exactly themselves.
Because, well, that was me and I know that this works.
So what's my magic?
Listening to you more wholeheartedly than you've ever experienced
Being fully present to the beauty in your life that you might have become oblivious to
Gently, fiercely, with unwavering compassion, helping you to tease out the truth from the distractions, the gratitude from the resignation, the joy in the everyday
Offering up a way of coaching that is trauma-informed and holds space for the unique ways we each move in the world, whether in your neurodivergence, your ethnicity, your experiences, your history, your quietness, your queerness.
Propelling you away from doubt and into a momentum that you can actually sustain.
Me and my radiance, out in the world

What my clients say...
"Working with Nadia to unearth deep seeded beliefs to smaller aha! moments has been a pleasure.
She truly understands the coaching principle that the answers lay within us and she expertly supports us to discover those answers.
Nadia's kind and gentle nature makes each session a joy - something I excitedly anticipated each week. I look forward to working with her more in the future."
- Briana Pegado, Named One of Scotland's 30 Under 30 Inspiring Young Women 2017
"You create such an unbelievably safe space... I knew no matter what unfolded in the conversations, I had your love and compassion there just holding that space for me.
Thank you for asking really good questions. You were able to craft the sessions to give me such a potent experience that I had no choice but to go on and carry out what we'd been talking about.
Energetically, even though it was over the screen, what you put out there and how that relaxed my central nervous system so that I could go to some of those places that feel really uncomfortable to go to... that's such a gift."
- Bronwyn Tutty, Dance Teacher, Author & Coach
"Nadia is such a gentle soul with an open, inquisitive nature. She has this lovely ability to see things with empathy and shed light on new angles that were perhaps hidden from your view. She can give you the tools and support to help you improve relationships with yourself and others and the way you can expand your vision for things you perhaps weren't sure of.
I now have the tools to break away from difficult cyclical behaviour... I can pause, stand my ground and not be as affected.
Professionally I am starting to believe that I am enough.
I would highly recommend Nadia."
- Maria Erla Portway, Photographer, portway.studio
