“The past 6 months have been eye opening as Nikki guided me through a reflective process with clear actions and tools to support me. The tools are so valuable to me as I am still in the process of unlearning negative beliefs and behaviours about myself. These negative thoughts were holding me back from achieving and being the person I am meant to be; …Coaching has given me a second chance to living a happier life. …Nikki you have made such a positive impact in my life. I think of where I was when I first met you and where I am now ,I would never be in this more hopeful and lighter frame of mind without you” – Barbara
