An invitation to step into your fullest, most expansive, UNBOUND self. But first, a story…
When I was little I had a dream. I was in an operating theatre and I was having a mask placed over my face. It was a plaster of paris mask that encased me from the shoulders up.
I could feel my breath hitting the hard surface, but I couldn’t express myself beyond it.
I couldn’t be seen.
I couldn’t exhale or inhale fully.
I was encased, held in, hidden, restricted.
It was terrifying.
And looking back, this dream makes perfect sense. Because like most little girls, I was being taught consciously and unconsciously, to wear a mask rather than be my true self.
Does this resonate?
Most of us were brought up to be good girls, to fit in, get it right and please others.
So that’s what we do and that’s what we continue to do as me move into our adult lives.
Playing the good girl,
Constantly monitoring others to see what’s acceptable (and what’s not),
And adapting ourselves accordingly.
This is why most women are leading half-lives.
A half-life of putting others first, being nice and not making a fuss.
A half-life of not asking for what you want and often, not even knowing what you want.
A half-life that you tell yourself is okay, you’re ticking along, but deep down you KNOW there is more.
You know YOU are more.
You know you’re still wearing that mask.
How does it feel?
When you’re wearing the good girl mask, even if you’ve managed to loosen it a little over the years, you feel stifled.
Most of your energy goes into monitoring what you say or do and pre-judging the response you’re going to receive from others.
So the choice you have is to continue being the good girl, living your half-life and wearing that mask, or to allow yourself to be your fullest, truest UNBOUND Self.
Sounds simple, eh?
But it’s not. (If it was, everyone would be living UNBOUND lives, showing up exactly as they are, feeling free and accessing their full potential. It’s quite clear to me that this is NOT the case right now).
Your Inner Good Girl has been protecting you for a LONG time. And in full disclosure there are many benefits to staying safely within her protection:
The comfort of staying small,
The safety of staying under the radar,
Approval from others,
A feeling of belonging.
Although, of course, none of the above is guaranteed. And you’re very unlikely to stay completely safe and comfortable even if you DO choose to remain under the protection of your Inner Good Girl.
You should know that there is also some pain attached to staying under her protection:
Boredom, ennui, tedium,
The nagging, underlying knowing that you’re not experiencing your full potential and that you’re living a half-life.
It can eat away at you, can’t it?
Then there are the benefits of being fully YOU, the Unbound Self:
Access to unlimited potential,
Sounds good, eh? Why wouldn’t you choose to be your Unbound Self?
Because of course, there are risks attached to this:
Having to make choices, decisions,
Having to take personal responsibility,
The chance of being criticised,
Gaining negative attention,
The possibility of feeling isolated,
Feeling like a freak.
So you this is the choice you have.
You can make it now, if you like.
But if you are willing to make that choice (and I suspect there’s at least a part of you that’s willing, because you’re here, reading this and you’ve got a fair way down this page), then I invite you to work with me one-to-one in my signature program, UNBOUND.
I offer UNBOUND in containers of either 3 or 12 months and I'm currently accepting applications from women who want to work with me in this way starting in January 2018 (with pre-work in Nov/Dec 2017).
The nature of UNBOUND is that it’s completely tailored to you. I will hold a powerful space and be your guide, as you uncover and release any unconscious blocks and patterns that have been holding you back until now, tune into your true desires and create a reality that reflects them.
This is transformational work.
And it’s not the faint-hearted.
This is a heroine’s journey.
Although the UNBOUND process is unique for each woman who steps into it, there are some themes to the work I do. Here are some of the aspects we may cover during our work together:
Are you feeling called to do this work?
The first step is to schedule an exploratory conversation with me. This call will be a chance for me to find out more about you and I will be able to explain more about the UNBOUND process and how I work. (Please note, there is no obligation whatsoever to invest in UNBOUND at the end of the call).

The investment for UNBOUND reflects the level of commitment and engagement that the process will demand of you. (Payment plans are available).
I know it’s a cliche, but this work can be truly life-changing. UNBOUND is for women who are called to create new ways of being in the world.
I only work with up to five one-to-one clients at a time. If UNBOUND is calling to you, I recommend that you take the first step and schedule a call with me now, so we can explore whether this program is a good fit for you.
Are you ready to say 'Yes' to your UNBOUND Self?
Here's what some previous clients have to say about working with me...
Worth every single penny...
Before Nicola and I started working together I felt stretched thin. I had recently moved my business to a new city, starting over from scratch while fighting a chronic illness which limited my ability to work full time. Needless to say I needed some help wrangling my finances, seeing opportunities where I otherwise couldn't see them due to stress, and changing my perspective.
I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed the process of working with Nicola. Her program went way deeper than I thought it would. She's encouraging, kind, and has a whole bag of tools to give clients in helping them go out into the world wiser and more confident than they were before.
Small business owners are often (and I mean OFTEN) coming across coaches, workshops, mentors, etc. It's always a leap of faith that this person will help give us wisdom, clarity, and support. I have to say that my experience with Nicola was worth every single penny.
A powerful peace within me...
Before I started working with Nicola, I felt overwhelmed with what direction to take my business, lacking clarity and focus which was affecting me and my personal life too.
Working with Nicola, I was shown great compassion and unconditional love and acceptance. She has helped me through some very difficult times and kept me on track.
Now I feel my business growing organically and with a powerful peace within me. Knowing I have Nicola believing and supporting me has encouraged me to believe I can create the life I want and have a successful business.
She is the best mentor, friend, coach and inspirational person I could have ever asked for and I feel eternally grateful for the support she has given me.
Deepest, sincerest thanks for EVERYTHING Nicola <3
I've experienced a powerful sense of belonging and connection...
Over the years, I've invested in various coaching packages and programmes but none has delivered in the way that Nicola Humber has.
Nicola brings a unique combination of expertise around attracting money, practical business experience and wisdom around personal growth as well as whole heap of warmth and care.
Since working with Nicola, I've experienced a powerful sense of belonging and connection, I've discovered a strong sense of direction in my business and I no longer feel isolated and confused about what I’m doing and why.
Working with Nicola is the complete package where there is unlimited opportunity to develop personally and learn how to grow your business.
