Nicola Harker is a doctor, teacher of Mindful Self-Compassion, and an ICF accredited Leadership Coach (ACC). She particularly works with high achieving women who are fed up with “spinning plates”, people-pleasing, not having the impact they wish, or at risk of burnout, although she happily works with clients of any gender.
She particularly works with high achieving women who are fed up with “spinning plates”, people-pleasing, not having the impact they wish, or at risk of burnout, although she happily works with clients of any gender. As a doctor, she was frustrated by her own early attempts at leadership, and the lack of psychological support and training for front-line staff, which led her into further training in Coaching, Self-Compassion and Family Systems therapy.
Nicola helps clients to find clarity, overcome emotional and practical barriers, reconnect with their unique qualities and learn high performance habits to help them thrive. She has been successfully supporting leaders and organisations to cultivate a healthy workforce throughout the pandemic, as well as inspiring individuals to take courageous steps to becoming true leaders in their work and home lives.
As a working Mum, and having worked in the NHS for over 20 years she has vast experience of the challenges of daily life and toxic working environments. She was a CCG Cancer Lead, a Macmillan GP Advisor, and taught Whole Person Care at Bristol University. Nicola has been featured in Psychologies Magazine, on Fox TV and regularly appears on podcasts. She blogs for the Psychologies online platform, and has been speaking about Compassionate Leadership for 5 years.
