Nishe Patel

During a decade of working in HR within corporate environments, Nishe was dedicated to supporting recent graduates and school leavers as they began their careers.  Although she loved working with these individuals, particularly as they transitioned to new environments and different ways of operating, she recognised that it wasn’t enough for her in isolation. Nishe began to explore what else may be out there.  She was keen to build on her existing experience and growing interest in learning & development, which led her to coaching.  It was clear to her that this would offer a valuable skill to future employers and support her in the next stage of her career.  Soon after, she began the Animas Diploma course.  And it was during one of her training weekends that Nishe volunteered to participate in a coaching demonstration, and experienced an incredibly powerful realisation.  This became an exciting pivot point in Nishe‘s life, creating a new beginning for a portfolio

Nick Bolton PCC

Nick is the founder and CEO of the International Centre for Coaching Supervision and Animas Centre for Coaching. A coach since the early 2000s, Nick established his coaching school in 2008 to bring transformational practice to coach training, perhaps never quite expecting to go on to be one of the largest coaching schools in the world. Nick’s fascination with coaching supervision was born of his work developing new coaches in the early years of their professional practice and along with a Masters in Psychological Coaching at Metanoia he went on to study coaching supervision at two centres of excellence before deciding to develop his own unique school based on integrative practice, a focus on depth work. His own style of coaching and supervision emerged from the existential school but with a liberal willingness to borrow, magpie-like, from any theoretical approach that could usefully bring additional perspectives. This ultimately led him
