Thresholds of the Soul Coaching

Nick Kettles

Nick is a Master Certified Coach, and healer of 25 years experience in the human potential movement. He is known for his skill in guiding his clients to compassionately embrace the full expression of their humanity, especially those parts they have marginalised or placed into the shadow.
In a desire to escape an awkward and painful past, throughout his life, Nick frequently mistook his own adaptive and often reactive life strategies as evidence of a purposeful existence. Today, he delights in finally moving slow enough to discover that our purpose and indeed our spirituality can be found at the heart of our messy humanity. This is his own Threshold of the Soul. It is by moving towards our chaos and mess rather than resisting or trying to control it, that true healing is found.

He created Thresholds of the Soul to provide the space and presence in which others can do the same. He lives in France within sight of the Pyrenees mountains, with his family, who keep his feet on the ground and heart open to possibility.
