I have followed a couple of Graham Nicholls’ very inspirationel courses and felt the contagious energy and deep spirituality that goes along. Graham is very down to earth, easy to understand, explains every aspect of the subject so very detailed and well, that no student can be lost.
I admire Graham very much for his honest, direct appearance – at eye level with the student.

Graham Nicholls

Graham is an International Best Selling Instructor with over 130,000 students having enjoyed his courses to date. He is the creator of The Priority Academy, a place of learning and growth to help people move into and be successful within the Helping Industry.

One of Graham’s key driving forces is to remove the barriers to the Helping Industry by producing high quality, accredited courses at affordable prices. As The Priority Academy develops it is fast becoming the go to place for those wishing to enter the Helping Industry and is creating a community to help and support everyone.

Over the last 15+ years Graham has developed himself in to an expert in Human Emotional and Behavioural Psychotherapy while becoming a leader in the areas of Strategic Life Coaching, NLP, EFT/TFT, Mindfulness, CBT and Multi-Discipline Psychotherapy. Through his teaching, he helps people to fulfil their dreams of joining the incredible helping industry as Helping/Psychotherapy Practitioners while also assisting clients from around the world to achieve their life’s goals, dreams and ambitions.

Bringing his own brand of Training and his innovative thoughts on Strategic Life Coaching, REBT (Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy), NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), Mindfulness, CBT, Psychotherapy and Leadership, he now teaches people how to “Live Life on Your Terms” through the medium of online video courses and Speaking engagements.

Over 20 years ago Graham was diagnosed with Anxiety, Depression and Stress all at the same time and was prescribed medication by his doctor. However he never fulfilled that prescription and decided instead to dedicate himself to the study of those conditions so that he could find his own way out. This lead him to the arena of Life Coaching where he discovered, not only the answers of how to help himself but also the tools and strategies to help others. After training with some of the worlds top Coaches and Therapists such as Tony Robbins, Chloe Medanes, Mark & Magli Peysha and Peter Thomson, Graham is now at the cutting edge of the helping industry
