Courage. Empowerment.Transformation. Self-Love. Patience. Perspective. And self-actualization. These are the words I use to describe my experience with Nicole Doherty. I started working with Nicole as a life coach to leave a job in which I was unhappy and unfulfilled. Nicole helped me accomplish this goal, but I gained much more from working with her than a new career. Nicole enabled me to unearth the causes underlying my discontentment for my job, and she dared me to engage in a process of self-discovery which has forever changed the course and trajectory of my life. With her insight and encouragement, I unveiled and overcame fears and old patterns holding me back from reaching my potential; I identified my strengths and recognized how I can use use them to further my goals; and I explored my passions and learned how to prioritize and integrate them in my personal and professional life. Nicole helped me "dive deep," while giving me the practical tools necessary to implement real change. She provided tools and self-reflective practices which assisted me in revealing my true self; she created a schedule to keep me focused and accountable; she taught me how to set goals and apportion my time to meet them; and, through it all, she gave me permission to have fun and be creative in the process. In the end, Nicole became not only a life coach but a sounding board, mentor and friend. I transformed from unsure and scared to confident and courageous. In my lifelong process of "becoming," Nicole was, and remains, integral. She turned a quick search for a change in career into a meaningful journey of personal enlightenment. I'm forever grateful for her help. You can do it too!
