This is what clients say about my approach:
"Nicola cuts through all the emotion and tension!"

"The advice I received from Nicola was cool and calm (just like her) at a time when I was anything but. Massive changes in your career can create lots of emotion and tension but Nicola manages to cut through all of that to help you deal with things in a business like manner."

~ Steve

"She gave me the confidence to ask questions"

"Nicola helped me navigate an elegant exit from the company I'd worked at for many years. She gave me the confidence to ask questions and prepared me for the changes which followed, offering factual knowledge and emotional support - often lifting my spirits with humour!"

~ Susannah

"I left with my head held high and relationships intact"

"I would strongly recommend Nicola if you find yourself in the position where it's clear your employer would like you to leave - having her "hold my hand" through the process was hugely reassuring and I left with my head held high, relationships intact and she also helped "add value" in terms of my ultimate departure package."

~ Anonymous

"I got a better deal in an easier way"

"Nicola gave me one piece of advice that changed the course of my exit. I'm very grateful.  I saved lots of energy and I got a better deal in an easier way. I didn't know this was possible until I listened to her"

Buy it now for the no-brainer price of £75!

You might be wondering why it's so cheap?  

I know I could charge loads more than this because I've only ever offered it as a 

one to one service - and it cost £1200.  

Now that sounds like a lot but it added thousands to my clients severance packages 

and got them through with their dignity and reputations intact.


So why have I created this low cost kit?  

Well....I hate seeing people trapped in work they don't love so I'm on a mission to change that - regardless of budget.

The CAREER KITS are my solution - where I offer a huge help at a small price for common career problems.

After purchase, you'll get instant access to the Severance Support Kit and can 

start taking action towards maximising your payoff and making the best of things.

If that makes sense...
So who am I to share this?

I'm Nicola Payne, and I blend 20 years' HR and coaching expertise to help people and organisations have better conversations... so they get the best out of each other.

I'm also someone who's been on all sides of the fence as far as severance situations goes.... as an HR Director, a Line Manager and an employee. 

  • I've led large and small scale redundancy programmes.
  • I've set severance policy and answered 1000s of severance questions from employees and line managers.
  • I've advised on 100s of "without prejudice" conversations for all sorts of reasons. 
  • I've spent hours debating the finer points of severance strategy with talented employment lawyers. 
  • I've led Employment Relations teams and overseen settlement cases. 
  • I've participated in settlement mediation and am a trained mediator too. 
  • I've had to tell people their roles are redundant as a line manager (this was the worst....) 
  • AND last but definitely not least, my role was made redundant too.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is The Severance Support Kit right for you?

  • When do I get access to the program?
    Pretty much instantly! As soon as you purchase...

    If you don't see an email from me, then please check your SPAM/JUNK folder as sometimes it goes in there! If it's not there, then please email us at
  • What if I don't like it?
    If you don't feel like you've learned anything new or useful, let me know in 14 days and I'll refund you in full. More refund details can be found in the terms and conditions.
  • I'm a coach, can I buy this and/or use it with my clients?
    Thanks for asking! And yes, you can buy it just like anyone else and each purchase entitles you to 1 licence for your own personal use. If you want to use it with clients, then please send them the link to purchase for their use too.

    Also - I always try and create a win/win where I can, so why not join my referral scheme where you can earn up to 40% commission, help your clients and I get to grow my business too!

  • I'm in HR, can I use this with my employees?
    I'd LOVE to see organisations using the kits as I'm all about helping people and organisations have better conversations and get the best out of each other. That said, I'm just putting the finishing touches to an "Employer" version which will probably suit you better.

    Join the waitlist for this and learn how to licence it for your organisation.
  • Do you have a affiliate/referral program?
    I'm all about the win/win, so the answer is "almost" because I'm just putting the finishing touches to my referral programme where you can earn up to 40% commission, help your colleagues, clients and friends AND I get to grow my business too.

  • Will the Kit give me legal advice and/or tell me what I should do?
    The answer to both of these questions is "NO". I'm not a lawyer, so I'm unable to give legal advice - however the Severance Support Kit does point you in the right direction on when you might need this and where to get it (in the UK).

    Also, as I don't know anything about your individual situation, it would be inappropriate for me to tell you what you should do. The Kit explains the process so you know what to expect and covers common scenarios and gives you things to think about so you can make more informed decisions for yourself.

    It does not replace legal advice that you may also need.
  • I live outside the UK - will the Kit be helpful for me?
    The easy answer is I don't know! This Kit was designed for a UK audience as I'm very familiar with employment practices here.

    Each country varies wildly in terms of their employment practices and laws and the UK is very different from other countries in Europe and different again from the US or the countries in South America or Asia etc. So I guess it may give you some things to think about, but it's unlikely to be applicable across the board.

  • How long will I have access?
    I like to keep things simple, so you'll have lifetime access for as long as I have this product.

    And even better, I have a long standing perfectionist gene, so I listen to customers and add things in to make things even better. And you'll get access to all these updates.
  • As an ex HR Director, are you a poacher turned gamekeeper?
    Haha! I don't see it like that - because as a coach, I don't think I need to be either/or.

    I'm on the side of people having better conversations, because that's better for everyone - employees, HR and Leaders too (and I can say that having sat in all 3 of those seats!)

    I've seen how conversations change when people show up more positive and informed and I genuinely think it leads to better workplaces for everyone.
