I create curious, courageous + playful spaces for you to re-imagine your life, relationships, communities, and future. And then I help you to make it all happen.
why waste time on small talk when we could be changing the world
Hey, I'm Nadia
As a life coach and as a writer, my work centres around imagination and action. But sometimes imagining the future can feel impossibly heavy. I think that's because so many of us try to do it alone. We keep trying to approach things in the ways we always have, keep replicating cultures of exhaustion because that's what we've always known.
I help individuals to lead colourful, creative, celebratory lives where they feel calm, playful, connected, and present. I specialise in coaching individuals whose experiences sit outside of the mainstream. I'm based in Scotland and work with clients all over the world.
I'm also passionate about creating collective spaces because, for the moment we find ourselves in, focusing solely on individuals can never be enough. Our work is to relearn and remember how to thrive together. I create events and workshops, and collaborate with others to co-create spaces where we can get vulnerable, connect, and celebrate!
Which choice makes your heart sing?
What Everyday Writes spaces feel like...
"I think that Nadia is especially good at working with highly sensitive people, empaths, creatives and neurodivergent people... attuned to people's needs and doesn't make any assumptions.
Nadia does NOT do a one-size-fits-all approach and "got" me from the very start. Sometimes I think Nadia gets me better than I get myself!
... an utter dream of a coach, and the person I want in my corner! ... brave, enthusiastic, loving, committed, caring and dedicated. "
- Lhamo Grace, Therapist, Coach and Musician
“I'm blown away by the session journal – truly. I feel incredibly touched, once more, and very lucky! It feels really precious – thank you.
What you offer feels like the most value of anything I’ve ever signed up for in my whole life.”
- Sarah W, one-to-one long-term coaching client
"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
"What a beautiful session Nadia, and it’s really special to have such a pleasing record of it too. Reading the session journal genuinely made me very heart-full.
Thank you so much."
- Climate resilience organisation, wellbeing workshop attendee
"Working with Nadia to unearth deep seeded beliefs to smaller aha! moments has been a pleasure.
Nadia truly understands the coaching principle that the answers lay within us and expertly supports us to discover those answers.
Each session is a joy - something I excitedly anticipate."
- Briana Pegado
"Nadia has this lovely ability to see things with empathy and shed light on new angles that were perhaps hidden from your view... and can give you the tools and support to help you improve relationships with yourself and others and 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."
