Than Your Mind

Mental Illness Mentor For Those In Business & Recovery

Helping you take control of your moods and emotions. So that you can confidently thrive in life and business. 


I get you because I don’t just talk to the talk I walk the walk. As well as understanding you, I will help you to understand yourself. Allowing you to then feel more understood by those around you too.


I wont give up on you and I will empower you to not give up on yourself.  Perseverance is crucial if you want to be stronger than your mind. It is about not giving up and having the tenacity required to do something and keep doing it tell the end, even it it’s hard.


I am not here to bull shit you! I will be honest with you so that you can finally start being honest with yourself too. I will sting like a bee so that you can fly like a butterfly. Knowing that I got you and honesty is always the best policy.

Are you ready to take supportive action. Discovering the tools and strategies you need so you can gain control of your moods and emotions. So you can feel accepted by yourself and live a confident life that you are in control of and feel emotionally independent in. Allowing you to finally thrive in life and in business.

Are you sick of feeling…


Can’t get where you want in your business because of the symptoms of your mental illness? But can’t tackle the symptoms of your mental illness because you’re so busy trying to make a success of your business?


Never feeling satisfied or happy? Happiness if it does occur is quickly followed by a fear that the numbness and the intense sadness will soon return. It means you simply exist in your life and in your business. Not knowing how to feel. 


Sick of feeling like you are letting yourself, your family and your business down?


Sick of being scared of your thoughts, your anxiety and plagued by nightmares. Scared to even put your head on the pillow at night because you know it will set off your overthinking?

I will help you to feel SAFE

S tronger than your mind

A ccepted by yourself

F it, mentally

E mpowered to be emotionally independent

I am a mental fitness mentor and I help people who are out of crisis point because lets face it, I have a Peugeot 3008 not an ambulance so I can’t offer you the support you would need at crisis point.

But what I will do is attack the day to day symptoms of mental illnesses that are left behind after crisis point or that lead to crisis point if not treated. 

I will target them like a serial killer targets it’s victims, after all I am statistically the most likely person in groups to be the ‘serial killer’ due to my mental illness diagnoses. 

Here are just some of the the initial feelings I will take my serial killer skills at for you, do you relate to any of these feelings; 

The Pink Elephant

We all know about the elephant in the room right? It is those topics that we know are there but we don’t talk about. Like when someone farts in a crowded lift but no one says anything! 

It is out mental health that is the elephant in the room in lots of instances in life and in business. You can find out more about what I mean by reading my blog about the pink elephant here, so that you can finally figure out how they are holding you back in your life and business.

I am here to help arm you with the tools you need to help tame your elephants. 

About Me

I offer heart-led honesty and a no-nonsense approach. With a wicked sense of humour, I’m not afraid to use when the situation calls for it. During our one-on-one or group sessions, you’ll find a perfect blend of laughter and tears. 

Having overcome various forms of trauma in my own life, I transformed my pains into my passions. Drawing from my counselling qualifications, I gained control over my own moods and emotions. As a mum of 4 who has survived suicide, I understand the intense challenges you face. Feeling worthless and burdensome, we often worry about the impact our moods have on our families never mind the impact it has on our business. Doing all the do in your business but being the one thing that is getting in your way. You are your own worse enemy and no matter what strategy you learn or what coach you employ. At the end of the day it is always your mental illness symptoms that stop you from thriving in business. I get this because I was this. 

I’m here to show you that you can regain control over your mental illness.

My specialization lies in helping people with long term mental illness such as Borderline Personality Disorder (aka Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder), complex PSTD or long term anxiety and depression. Combining my diverse qualifications, I offer a multifaceted approach to address the day-to-day symptoms of your mental illness.

I personally have BPD and complex PTSD as well as co morbid anxiety and depression. However, I’ve mastered the art of not letting my fluctuating moods dictate my life. My greatest passion is sharing the tools and strategies I’ve developed with people who are ready to take proactive steps to gain control over their own moods and emotions. Together, I’ll help you achieve emotional independence and confidently take charge of your life and business.

I have created a SAFE supportive community of understanding, acceptance and where no judgements are given. All working together with one goal in mind, to get more mentally fit so that you can feel stronger than your mind. I would love for you to join us there.


What my clients say 

I came across Nicola on Facebook when I saw her post and answered ‘yes’ to so many questions. For both my mental and physical health – I knew I had to explore her further. I am glad I did. Nicola is amazing, a true survivor and a warrior. She is supportive and inspiring but not afraid to kick butt when the situation demands it. The other group members are wonderful; there is no judgment, it’s a safe place to be, and yes, it can be a funny place too. Mental and physical health don’t have to be 100% serious, as I’ve discovered. Thanks to her incredibly useful and honest online support guides, I know I can turn to Nicola or her virtual self for help 24/7. Stronger Than Your Mind is unique and that’s a good thing. It’s not sterlie, clinical, or ‘fluffy bunny’. It’s honest, it’s open, it’s warm and friendly. It’s serious, it’s funny, it’s light, and sometimes you’ll get a no-nonsense toe up your bottom if that’s what you need. If you think all support groups are the same, think again.

Nicola has created workshops to help with numerous different issues/areas of concern and by working through them you are able to see things from a different perspective. I’m always going back through my worksheets to remind myself of how I felt when I worked through the workshops and it really helps. Nicola is so knowledgeable and makes you feel at ease. She really is the expert as she has experienced and overcome her own challenges in life.


When I finally opened up to Nicola and told her what I was going through, there was no judgement and no talk of social services, but lots of understanding. It was so nice to finally have someone to speak to about all of this, I didn’t feel alone anymore. Nic was like a little light in a very dark time where I couldn’t see a way out. After sometime of having one to ones with Nic the pain began to lift I began to see that I wasn’t crazy, my children were not better off without me and I wasn’t a horrible person my my was telling me I was I began to see I was worthy of help but most importantly I could see that what happened to me wasn’t my fault. If I could go back and tell that little girl anything I would tell her it won’t feel like this forever and everything was going to be alright and she was going to make it thanks to a very special lady who would lead her out of all the darkness and pain she was carrying.


When I first started my sessions I still felt a little alone discovering I struggled with BPD and what it meant for me. I was unsure of my next steps to take and what to do to help. I feel a lot more positive about myself now and don’t feel like people are going to hate me because of the way I am. I know I’m never going to be ‘cured’ but I am okay with that now, I know I have to keep working at it and eventually I’ll have more control over my head so I am determined to keep working hard! I feel I have more control than when we first started having sessions. I handle tough situations better than I did before and I am not quite as closed as I used to be because I was scared to let people in. I am proud of myself when I look back at everything that has happened and I am still here trying to make things better. I can’t thank Nicola enough for the support and guidance she has given me, it is honestly priceless. I dread to think where I’d have been if I hadn’t found Nicola.
