“My name is Nichola Pyrkos, I am a Mindfulness Facilitator and Transformation Life Coach and my mission is to help people remember who they truly are, what they want and how powerful their ability to consciously create their reality is; to assist them on their path to healing and letting go of what no longer serves them; and to give them the tools they need to tap into their intuition, inner resources, and wisdom to overcome their challenges, achieve their dreams and make their own unique contribution to this amazing world!”
My need to understand and positively impact people's lives came from my own difficult childhood. Like so many, I endured challenges and traumas which needed to be healed and transmuted. It is no accident I have walked the life path that I have and that my life purpose is to be of service to others... for that I am thankful.
Having graduated with a Psychology degree in 2001 and a Masters in Social Work in 2010, I have spent the last 20 years supporting people of all ages and backgrounds in identifying their needs and adopting a solution-focused approach to help transform the lives of hundreds, if not thousands of families. Understanding people’s personal stories, helping them identify their goals and solutions, overcoming barriers, and building resilience have always been central themes in my professional practice. Over time I have come to realise that facilitating in the transformation of people’s lives is not only my passion and life purpose, but it has helped me understand and begin to heal the wounds of my own past.
At the same time, despite my education and expertise, having had a child of my own it became quickly apparent that juggling parenthood, career, home, family, finances, my self care etc all as a single parent was not just overwhelming...it left me feeling like a ghost of my former self, disconnected from who I was, the people around me, and finding little joy in my day to day life. In a bid to prevent burnout and a possible breakdown I enrolled on an 8 week Mindfulness course for parents...and this turned out to be the first step to transforming my own life!
In 2018 I completed the accredited Mindfulness Now Teacher Training programme* which opened my eyes to a whole new way of working not only with clients, but also in how I relate to myself and interact with the world around me. I have come to know that with regular meditation and mindfulness practice, we can tap into our inner strength, resources and wisdom, bring self-awareness and perspective into our often overwhelming lives, and it can help us attain the sense of balance we need and crave. I have spent the past 5 years developing my personal mindfulness practice, and coupled with my goal-orientated solution focused approach, I have transformed my life and brought into my reality all the things I value and bring me joy, as well as having built my resilience to successfully surf the waves life likes to roll out for all of us.
My quest for ongoing personal evolution and mastery continued and in March 2020 I decided to take the plunge and dive head-first into the world of Transformational Life Coaching. I completed an accredited Life Coaching, Hypnotherapy, NLP and EFT course run by the multi award-winning CAM Coaching Company** and completed 100+hrs of direct work with clients using a range of powerful tools and techniques. Today I work with clients online on a one to one basis, I publish content-rich personal development and mindfulness posts weekly via Instagram @mindfullifecoachuk, have written over 20 resourceful blogs available on this website (see Menu), and have developed a Resources Toolkit of over 100 coaching exercises to use with clients to address more or less any issue in any key area of their lives they wish to change.

Who I Work With....My Ideal Clients
I work with both men and women of all ages who are feeling lost and dissatisfied with life - they wake most mornings feeing flat, dreading the day ahead and lay awake night after night wondering how life ended up the way it has? They have lost their spark...their sense of joy, balance and they want MORE!
My ideal clients are looking to TRANSFORM their lives - their homes, their careers, key relationships, their physical health, emotional wellbeing, their finances and lifestyle, and create a life they can love and be proud of!
They are ready to make the shift, committed to changing old thought and behaviour patterns and finally bring themselves out of the fog; for some it will be rescuing themselves from the storm!
They may be completely new to personal development or they have already started working on themselves and need support to take them to the next level to consciously create the life and balance they need and desire.
If you answer YES to 4 or more of the following, my programmes are for YOU:
You feel stuck, without direction, and dissatisfied with life
You feel disconnected from yourself and the people around you
You know you are capable of doing more/better but can't help holding yourself back
You spend so much time caring for and trying to please others that you have no time to care for yourself
You suffer from increasing health conditions and feel your body is out of whack
You feel emotionally overwhelmed juggling responsibilities - stressed, anxious, outbursts, mood swings
You feel you are doing a lousy job by everyone around you and always feeling guilty
You suffer from spiralling thoughts & negative self-talk
You struggle to attract and maintain healthy experiences and relationships into your life
You’ve had enough of getting in your own way!
You are ready to challenge yourself and adopt new ways of doing things!
You are excited to learn and grow and experiences awesome changes!
You are committed to making the ultimate THE SHIFT to a new timeline and have no intention of looking back!

" I am interested in Transformational Life Coaching...What Happens Next?"
Email me at email@example.com summarising what the key issues are for you that you want to change through Life Coaching, and WHY NOW is the right time for you to address these issues?
We have a video call via Zoom or WhatsApp to explore how Transformational Life Coaching can help and whether I am the right coach for you; to agree how many sessions are needed, available dates and times, and answer any questions you may have to help you make an informed decision.
You will also receive an invoice for the coaching programme agreed with details of payment options i.e. in full or monthly/weekly instalments.
Tune in for your first 90min online session towards transformation!
Expect learning, letting go, clarity, to be challenged, realisations, lightbulb moments and home practice activities to help fast track all the changes you wish to make in life.
Text and email support is available for FREE between sessions, as well as audio recordings and course materials, and a detailed summary of each coaching session is provided within 24hrs for you to refer back to in future.
For those who invest in 3 month programmes or longer, we complete a Life Evaluation & Plan at the start of our work to gage where you are in life, how satisfied you are, what your priorities are, and how we are going to help you move towards what you want in all major life areas. We review this at the half-way point and at the end of our work to ensure your goals have been met (or are on track), and to measure change and success over time.
If further sessions are needed this can be agreed upfront, and coaching can end whenever you feel the time is right for you. Feedback is requested upon completion of any programme to inform future improvements in service.
Clients who complete a programme of 3 months plus are offered a FREE 3 Month Catch-Up Session after coaching has ended, to gage ongoing progress and keep them on track with longer term goals and dreams. Clients who have completed a minimum 3 month programme are also welcome to sign up for monthly catch up sessions to ensure they stay on track with their longer term goals and to help trouble-shoot any issues which inevitably arise in the pursuit of their dreams.
