HOLISTIC THERAPIST & WELLBEING PRACTITIONER
Hi there, I’m Nicola, a fully qualified Holistic Therapist, Skin Specialist, Mindfulness Practitioner and Menopause Coach.
I specialise in improving the wellness of my clients through holistic treatments, whilst providing practical tips and resources in the form of regular website blogs and posts to my social media channels.
I practice mindfulness, guided meditation and am a keen reader and self developer. I am fully insured and a member of The Federation of Holistic Therapists and the British Association of Beauty Therapy & Cosmetology.
My main aim is to help improve
mind, body and spirit
– through a totally holistic approach.
Please do get in touch. I would love to hear from you.
“Due to doing a lot of rowing and swimming my shoulders and back were very stiff and aching. I booked a back massage
with Nicola & it was amazing. She identified my tense areas and spent time working around these muscles.
I didn’t want it to end – ever! Nicola was extremely professional, welcoming as well as being friendly.
She provided an environment of complete calmness and relaxation. I can’t wait for my next treatment!”
My background has been in the beauty and wellness industry where I spent many years as Training Manager, at Selfridges, London before becoming National Training Manager at L’Occitane en Provence. It was here that I set up the training department; designing and implemented initiatives including basic and advanced skincare training.
I have been a Holistic Therapist for thirteen years and have always had a keen interest in health and wellbeing. I feel very fortunate to be able to make a real difference to how my clients feel.
I regularly update and add to my skills and knowledge. I like to be at the top of my game. I am a Menopause Coach providing strategies and support to better understand and manager this life transition. I am also a Mindfulness Practitioner helping others live more mindfully, assisting those that live with negative emotions, by showing them how to be present with their experiences instead of hiding from them. Along side these I am a skin specialist and continue to add to my facial skills and offering.
I've also completed two professional certificates:
'Understanding & Managing Stress' & 'Understanding Mental Health'
which have given me some invaluable strategies to help guide some of my clients.
In addition to these I regularly undertake an accreditation programme with MASCED.UK (Melanoma and Skin Cancer Early Detection) to educate myself in spotting the early signs of skin cancer whilst working with my clients.
I use Neals Yard oils in the majority of my body work therapies. These are high quality natural and organic products. I carefully hand pick effective high end skincare products which I use as part of my bespoke facial treatments.
I am resident blogger for Perfumery & Co www.perfumeryandcompany.com writing about all things beauty related. Sharing my knowledge, tips and recommendations. Perfumery & Co are a wonderful independent beauty company offering a comprehensive range of products with an amazing personal service.
I work with The Body Retreat www.thebodyretreat.co.uk who specialise in wellness retreats for women in the UK and Spain providing holistic retreats to their retreaters in Spain.
I also volunteer with Look Good Feel better www.lookgoodfeelbetter.co.uk which is a leading cancer charity.
