Hey, I’m Barbara and I’m here to help Business Owners and leaders, unlock their potential, stop holding themselves back and get the results that they really want in their business.
Isn’t life hard enough as it is without making things even more complicated?
Leading Yourself First
How you lead yourself matters. I’ll help you get out of your own way and give you permission to look after your own needs so you can start having a much greater impact. I love nothing more than helping my clients elevate as a leader in their field and totally stand in their power. Get ready to shine!
It doesn’t matter how much you learn, it’s about what you do with it that counts. Together I’ll show you how to take action to avoid the overwhelm so you’re constantly moving in the right direction.
I’ve been in the People Development Space for all of my career – 25 years and counting.
Little did I know I’d stumbled into my purpose.

“I actually stand taller”
“After working with Barbara over the past 6 months I have more belief in my skills and attributes and now believe I can achieve what I have set out to do, I don’t let the opinion and shallow comments of others impact me – I actually stand taller!
“Imposter Syndrome has been defeated!”
“I have been working with Barbara for around 18 months and the support she has given me has been invaluable.
“The Coaching was Invaluable”
“Barbara has worked with the senior leadership team here at the Bone Cancer Research Trust for the last 6 months. She has provided us with flexible and tailored coaching to meet our needs as a new leadership team working through a time of change. Her sessions, which have been both 1-2-1 and as a group, have been invaluable – we have become a more efficient and effective team as a result, with what will hopefully be a long-lasting impact.”Liz Eatock
“I now have a real tenacity to ensure I achieve my goals”
“I’m so pleased I made the decision to contact Barbara Nixon. I really had no idea what to expect. The results have been truly remarkable, I have a sense of calm and understanding with a clear vision, a real tenacity to ensure I achieve my goals. There are lots of things I like about Barbara, the one thing that stands out for me is the way she always pushes you out of your comfort zone without you realising it until a few days later when reflecting. I thoroughly enjoy reading the books Barbara recommends, they are purposeful and extremely insightful. I would recommend Barbara to anyone in leadership, anyone who is at a cross roads in their career, or you are a leader who just feels its lonely at the top, or if you just want to boost your confidence. Barbara is brilliant……my team leader has now started coaching sessions with Barbara.
“I feel more empowered than ever”
“I cannot recommend this fantastic lady enough! I’d lost sight of how to get where I wanted to go and Barbara knew exactly how to hone in on what was needed. I now have a new way of looking at how I value my own time and different aspects of my business, meaning my way forward now makes perfect sense! I feel more empowered than ever to be able to achieve my goals. Thank you Barbara for your time, support and being so on the ball!”Helen Earnshaw
“I have unlocked my confidence and self-belief, which has enabled me to achieve my true potential”
“Barbara has been a great inspiration to me, providing practical and very valuable tools and skills to enable me to grow in my professional development. She has unlocked my confidence and self-belief, which has enabled me to achieve my true potential. I will be eternally grateful to her for believing in me and supporting me to reflect on my strengths. Thank you and look forward to seeing you in the future.”Trudy Morris
“Working with Barbara was life changing”
“Working with Barbara over six months has been life changing. She has introduced me to a new world of positive self talk which has helped me see life through a new pair of eyes. I felt like she got me from the first meeting and understood my frame of reference. I now have tools to deal with the pressures of management but also every part of my life. Thanks for inspiring me!”David Ryder
“I push my boundaries and limits to achieve”
“The coaching experience with Barbara was helpful, effective and enjoyable. She makes you feel really at ease and comfortable. She has helped me build my confidence both professionally and personally and has provided me with life-long skills to help me develop even further and push my boundaries and limits to achieve.”Jade Seivewright
“Barbara makes the complex feel uncomplicated”
“I was looking for a coach to help me with a specific issue and, after an initial cuppa and chat, I knew that Barbara was the person I needed to work with! She listened to me, understood me and reassured me which made me feel relaxed, comfortable and confident. She helped me work through the issue by helping me understand, rationalise and come up with my own solutions by helping me to get to the core of the issue. At the same time it always felt Barbara was there with me, metaphorical arm round my shoulder, guiding and encouraging. She makes the complex feel uncomplicated and after every session I felt positive and inspired. Thank you Barbara,! I look forward to working with you more as a trusted guide on my business journey”Andy Bennett
“I have grown more confident in my role being able to look at different approaches then focusing on taking action.”
“Working with Barbara has enabled me to shape and implement a set of personal objectives that have materially improved my performance as a leader. Barbara has that natural ability to make you recognise your own potential and help to guide you towards it. Therefore due to her help and advice I have grown more confident in my role being able to look at different approaches then focusing on taking action. Barbara has been instrumental in helping me to “hold up a mirror” to myself in order to see myself as others do. Barbara is enlightening, inspiring and reflective. I would definitely recommend Barbara’s coaching services.”Jim Smith
“This wonderful woman saved my life!”
“I can’t tell you how many times this week I’ve told friends, colleagues, clients and people I’ve only just met that this wonderful women has ‘saved my life’ by encouraging me to address personal issues and take action to unlock my true potential. So this week I’m (a) grateful that I met Barbara Nixon b) I call this wonderful human my friend and (c) last year I chose her to be my coach.”Samira Cakali
