Laurence Nicholson

Laurence Nicholson is the CEO and founder of the N Cubed Group, My Better Life – Mind Coaching, and Exec Mental Health Solutions, through which he works with both Corporate clients and individuals, to improve and optimise mental health, performance and resilience, in order to realise measurable improvements in business and personal productivity and decision making.

A Mind Coach, certified as a Corporate Mental Health Facilitator, holding 'Distinction' grade certifications in Life Coaching, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychoanalysis, Depression Counselling, Anger and Aggression Management Counselling, Criminal Psychology, Forensic Psychology, and Corporate Wellness Coaching, Laurence is also trained in Corporate Coaching and Mentoring, Behavioural Analysis, and to expert level in non-verbal deception detection and analysis.

He has spent over 35 years working across corporate environments, as both a consultant and leader, and when he was first sent abroad for work way back in the 1990’s, he became fascinated by how different people and cultures think and behave in different ways under the same conditions, and quickly became addicted to immersing himself within local environments, in order to get a true experience of thought processes and event-behaviour associations.

Human psychology and behavioural patterns became his passion, and he used his corporate consulting work as a way to enable him to travel extensively and to study wide and diverse behaviours, and investigate the ‘how and why’ of our brain’s processes, and more importantly the impacts of stress and change on people, universally.

His business education and experience as an advisor and consultant in procurement, finance, law, information technology, organisational change and executive management, combines with his life experiences and numerous culturally immersive experiences from working in over 14 Countries around the world, to provide what his clients consider as a unique appreciation of their individual circumstances.

Laurence aligns himself with Jungian psychodynamic theory, with its spiritual element, and supports this as a certified and attuned Reiki Master Teacher and a certified Meditation Teacher.
