high-performance coaching

If you’ve arrived at this page, chances are you’re a high-performing woman who prides herself on her achievements.

You work hard, you create great results and on the surface you have everything going for you and everyone thinks you’re amazing because of what you can get done.

You’re at the top (or very near to the top) of your field and it’s because you’re an action-taker who goes the extra mile and you deserve the credit for all those hours you’ve put in and what you’ve created.

But behind the scenes, you’re trying to hide a head full of fearful thinking and insecurity.

You never switch off, you don’t sleep well, you’re constantly on the move and you never relax.

And it’s starting to affect your relationships, your productivity and possibly even your health.

I want to invite you to consider that decision-making, establishing priorities, improving performance, developing leadership skills, facing challenges, managing staff and increasing productivity could all be so much simpler than you’re making it.

My name is Nicola Bird and fuelled on adrenaline, I built an incredibly successful business before burning out completely. Following that experience I discovered a completely different way of understanding the human mind that has allowed me to create incredible results in the world from a completely different foundation. And fall back in love with my life outside of work all over again too.

The other side of one conversation lies more simplicity, productivity, ease and clarity than you could possibly imagine.

things to get done

of you

Just wanted to put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard to say how much I have not only enjoyed the past few days but also to explain how much I have got out of it.

The world appears to be really different today. 

When I stumbled across your work I knew it was the right path for me however I wasn’t sure just how much it would resonate (when you are a busy thinker you think nothing will) however the past few days have opened up a whole new world of calm to me. 

My mind feels quiet – I have a complete understanding of how “things” work.  I can’t even explain it really but what I do know is that I feel lighter, brighter and more here. I feel liberated and free for the first time in a long time. 

Feel so tired and relaxed I can’t keep my eyes open but a lovely tired like nothing is on me… xxx”


slow down to get more done


I’d like to invite you to work with with me in this personalised year-long coaching program to completely transform the way you show up to the work that you do.

You probably have a big vision and plans for the next 12 months. 

How would it be if you could implement WITHOUT any of the stress?

Without it being at the expense of your closest relationships?

And with a huge dose of creativity and innovation you never thought possible?

To be able to actually enjoy life in the moment instead of continually racing onto the next project.

To learn how to slow down to get more done.

To wipe 90% off your to-do list.

To experience stillness and clarity at the heart of your next project.

To go from rushed, adrenaline-fuelled woman who tries to control every aspect of her life to one who lives a life filled with simplicity, creativity and love.

It’s simpler than you might think, but it does require you to use your mind differently than you’ve been used to. 

You have so much more going for you than you have ever realised.

Twice the productivity with half the effort and none of the stress.

how it works

Think of me as a partner for the next 12 months – on hand to help you totally transform the foundations from which you work, a catalyst to help you realise your own creativity and clarity and an anchor to point you back towards simplicity over and over again as you learn how to access it for yourself.

We’ll kick off with a four-day in-person Foundational Intensive.

Here’s where we’ll lay it all out on the table – your challenges, your ambitions, your relationships, your health and the complexities life seems to hold you to. And we’ll make it all so much simpler.

Why four days? Chances are, you lead a pretty busy life. In my experience, there’s something very special that happens when we have the chance to work together over a focussed period of time in person – we can get to the same place in four days that it can take months to achieve with the usual weekly coaching session format.

Think of it as the difference between taking weekly driving lessons and instead doing an intensive driving course.

The Intensive will take place at the luxury Foxhills Country Hotel in Surrey- named ‘one of the best resorts in Britain’ by the Independent. The Intensive includes 3 nights’ accommodation and breakfast plus access to all the hotel grounds, golf and spa facilities at this beautiful, peaceful venue.

Six months into the program, we’ll do a further four-day Advanced Intensive together. This is our opportunity to explore more deeply our ability to be hugely productive and creative without any of the stress. And how to remain calm and resourceful in life no matter what the circumstances.

Twice a month we will also have an hour-long coaching call (with the exception of August and December). These are to keep our momentum flowing, help cement our work together and for you to bring any area of your life where you’d like a fresh perspective and a ‘simplicity reset’. Email support is also available.

In addition, I’ll personally curate a selection of additional videos and materials throughout the year to support your learning.

One year together. Change the way you work forever.

Your investment in this program is £20,000.

My retreat with Nicola was nothing short of transformatory for me.

As a long standing sufferer’of health anxiety, I had pretty much tried everything to try and rationalise how I was feeling and constantly trying to manage my thinking to achieve a different calmer outcome.

Insight after insight were dropped for me across the days we spent together and I can honestly say that, whilst I know that life will bring me ups and downs, challenges and grief on occasion, that I am always safe, I will always be OK, my wisdom will show up always when I need it and I will only ever look upstream from now on.

I would absolutely recommend this retreat to anyone who is looking for real relief from stress as these insights are profound and lifelong. Changing your relationship with thought and finding that inner peace is beyond precious.
