Jeremy Nicholson, Midlife Coach
I was born in 1967 and grew up in Bristol. After studying languages at The University of Sheffield, and before becoming a coach, I trained to work in the television industry and have over 25 years’ experience as a Vision Mixer and Director covering all aspects and genres of UK broadcasting.
Reaching my mid forties, I began to get restless. It wasn’t a midlife crisis – there was never a yearning to go bungee jumping or buy a sports car – but I started looking for something more challenging and more fulfilling.
Having made big changes in my own life and followed a new career path, I’m now committed to helping others who are seeking improved personal performance and fresh challenges of their own.
I am an excellent communicator and a great listener, which is perfect for coaching. I’m calm, patient and easy to get on with. My life experience gives me the edge in helping others to get the most out of life.
Over the years I have volunteered to work with developmentally challenged children and adults with learning difficulties. I also served in a voluntary capacity for four years as a Special Constable in the Metropolitan Police. All these experiences played their part in honing my ‘people’ skills to a high degree.
My spare-time passion is genealogy. My logical approach to problem-solving has enabled me to trace one branch of my family tree back as far as 1620, and chart a sea-faring ancestor’s voyages around the world in the late 19th Century.
Until a hip replacement operation in 2014, my other love was motorcycling. Maybe one day it will be revived…
