Why I Know What Is Possible – My Journey
After working In Mental Health Services, a Women’s Therapy Centre and the Drug Dependency Field, I began in Private Practice. I have been practicing in the private sector since 2005 working as a Chartered Counselling Psychologist with many people helping with a wide variety of issues.
My special interest lies in the field of Energy Psychology and I integrate this into the therapeutic counselling work to enable change and healing at a deep level and in a short space of time. Working with the body’s energy systems and the sub-conscious mind helps the mind, body and spirit to be in congruence, working together towards the same goal. If the old sub-conscious patterns and conditioning are going against the new desired outcome, then actual change can feel very difficult.
It was my personal healing journey that led me into the field of mindfulness, energy psychology, healing and neuroplasticity. Having experienced working on myself and healing from Systemic Lupus Erythematosis,’an incurable’ auto-immune disease, I know what is possible! I was busy looking at and living with my limitations. I was playing small, in fact I wasn’t playing at all! I was flat out on the sofa with a new screaming baby diagnosed with a ‘mischeivious gut?’, and a toddler to care for. I was producing no DHEA, barely any growth hormone and very little cortisol. About to start hormone injections alongside the large doses of steroids that seemed to be the only answer to managing the Lupus, I realised that I was on a slippery decline and that if I didn’t find ‘another way’, I’d never be riding my bike with my boys and enjoying them grow up. I meditated and pleaded with the universe repeating ‘I open myself up to the healing energies of the universe’… and that afternoon in July 2006, my healing journey began. It has been hard work but I’ve met some wonderful people along the way and I have transformed my life. I am in alignment with my soul purpose and while I have had to make some huge changes, am living the life that I choose. I am eternally grateful for the shifts that I have had and the support from my family, friends and the spirit team that support and work with me. And somehow, this feels like just the beginning.. there is much to do in order for us to enjoy our ‘being’ and living of ‘heaven on mother earth’.
“No body else is going to sing my story, no body else is going to put it right for me.. ” From the musical Matilda
My healing journey also incorporated the use of herbs and nutrition which enabled me to wean off of pain killers and immune suppressants while undoing the emotional traumas and patterns that my body was expressing for me. I now work alongside Dr Caroline Longmore MD, Naturopath and Herbalist at Galen Wellness for anyone needing Professional help in this arena.
The last piece of the puzzle for me was finding Chi Kung and thanks to Annie Pritchard, I met Clara Apollo at the Health and Wellbeing fair in Haslemere and embarked on the teacher training programme with the Academia of Shamanic Chi Kung in the New Forest. Chi Kung has been hugely helpful for unwinding the patterns within my body and restoring balance and equilibrium. I now run a class on a Friday night and delight in sharing the benefits of Chi Kung with others.
While there is always more to learn, I love my work and am passionate about helping to facilitate people along their journey through life. Your body, mind and spirit holds all of the answers that you need in order to heal your life and move into flow. Energy Psychology and Energy Healing gently help you to access this information, then if you are ready and willing, change is possible.
If you feel a little stuck and think that I can be of help to you, do call.
We are powerful creators and together we can create Heaven On Mother Earth. A place called HOME, a place where we belong.

About Therapy with Nikki
Nikki’s unique combination of therapies has been the most affective form of therapy I have ever experienced and has facilitated a quantum leap in my own personal growth and development. It has been a joy and a delight to share my journey with her.
I went to see Nikki during one of the lowest points of my life – I’d just had a relationship end which I devastated about, and had been really depressed for a few months in general. I was very unhappy with every aspect of myself at the time, and was struggling to lift myself out of it. We used a combination of counselling, NLP and energy healing throughout the sessions, and I was always made to feel completely comfortable and at ease with opening up to Nikki. As well as having the professional skills required to help me, she was so lovely, kind and welcoming. I remember waking up on the morning after my first session, and not having a heavy dark cloud hanging over me for the first time in ages. I felt so much more calm and centred, and optimistic that things would get better and that I’d have the strength to make the changes that I needed to make with the right support. I gained so much from the therapy, and was provided with skills to maintain the changes that had occurred.
“It came to the stage on my spiritual journey that no matter how much I had worked with my self I needed that final pull through the birthing canal of darkness and that was when Nikki came in to my life… her tool bag is big enough to fix the entire planet and boy did we come at it from all angles…now I feel the clearest I have ever possibly imagined, knowing I have addressed all the things I had pushed in to recess’s of my body and soul… And wish all folk would take the time and care to address their “stuff” we all have it and there’s nothing to fear, especially when your hand is held tight all the way… Thank you Nikki.

I have only been seeing Nikki for a few weeks. The first time I went I drove up and down the road several times, I was shaking and my Stress levels were high. I did not know what to expect. When I had plucked up the nerve to go up her drive, get out of the car and then knock on her front door, I was meet with a warm and smiling face of Nikki. I knew straight away this was the right decision, a warmth and peace washed over me straight away. Over the last few weeks I have come to terms with a few things and am more at peace and less stressed .
Nikki’s Natural energy and Healing methods are working. Last week Nikki introduced me to EFT and it is amazing as to how it unblocks me and releases my stresses.
As a counsellor, Nikki has great insight, compassion and sensitivity. What makes her approach so versatile are the different transformational tools that she can employ. Sometimes we spend a session talking through a problem, at another we might address an unhelpful belief with Psych-K or perhaps tap through an issue with EFT and Matrix work. Learning how to tap on myself at home has been an added bonus. The best thing of all is I always end the session feeling calmer and more positive than when I arrived.
I found Nikki at a time when I was going through personal difficulties. I wasn’t sure at the time if I should be looking for a male or female therapist, but it turned out that she was the right one for me. From the start she was kind and welcoming, and I found it easy to open up to her.
She has a knack of tuning in and getting to the important issues and giving helpful suggestions for dealing with them. After an appointment with Nikki I leave feeling lighter and happier. She has been an invaluable help to me at a difficult time in my life and I thank her for it.
Since I’ve started my sessions with Nikki, I’ve begun to think about myself differently, and I’m starting to feel like a different person, still the one before but one I’m developing into in a great way. Nikki has helped me identify my feelings, release them gently and she is teaching me to stop turning them against myself, she’s also helped me understand feelings and relationships and releasing and understanding patterns and stuff buried from the past. Nikki is amazing, kind, honest and gentle. We’ve worked through EFT and re-wiring my mind and my thoughts leaving the stuff I’ve learnt and built up over the years. Practising these techniques in my own time has made me stronger too. I really enjoy working with Nikki, I feel great, healthier, stronger and clearer more and more after every session. I’m looking forward to seeing her again. Nikki, you are the best!

Our Greatest Fear — Marianne Williamson
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.
