“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style”

“If you can’t take yourself off to the mountains, beach or bush for some downtime, do yourself a favor and go to one of Nicky’s Mindfulness talks. You’ll feel yourself letting out a long breath which you didn’t even know you were holding. Nicky gives some physiological background as to why you handle stress the way you do and offers gentle, effective tips and reminders on how to calm yourself and your family and to focus on the moment. I highly recommend her talks."

What an inspirational, invaluable and sensible talk!! I often feel over whelmed by the daily ‘drill’ that life in a big city can be and the tools Nicola provided were very helpful. I don’t always get it right but to actual ‘live and absorb’ each moment and to be mindful of our actions is so important. Thank you so much, soul food!

Nicola’s has an amazing ability to approach wellness holistically - treating the body, and training the mind and soul to embrace the lifestyle patterns that sustain healing and well-being for the long run. Nicky speaks with wisdom and insight on mindfulness, and has helped me to put some simple tools into practice, and move into daily awareness of mental process and calm. Over the four years that I have been seeing Nicky I’ve experienced much improvement in my physical body as well as enjoying journeying with her in creating a deeper awareness of the mind-body-connection. I’m so grateful for Nicky’s input!

Nicola has given me insight and guidance into taking a more mindful approach to life: Being more conscious over the pace, quality and content of my days as opposed to always running to keep up with the crowd or simply being swept along without thought or control.Her insights into nutrition, wellness, health and fitness have also given me a new perspective. I have challenged my previous considerations about my body and what it needs or is capable of and I have been inspired to take more time to enrich myself, both physically and emotionally.I truly believe that a simpler more mindful approach to daily life will create more satisfaction and happiness in the long run than the endless production and consumption that defines the 'busyness' treadmill that we tend find ourselves on these days.
The books that she has referred me to have been instrumental in reinforcing this viewpoint and in offering practical tools to change and grow with this purpose.

“Just a quick note to thank you for the really informative chat on Thursday. Fascinating stuff and lots to think about trying to incorporate day-to-day.”

“I have been privileged to listen to Nicky’s talk not once, not twice but three times and truth be told, I could easily listen to her talk numerous more time and keep taking out different gems of information.
Nicky is clearly passionate about her subject matter and speaks from the heart in an authentic and gentle manner.
I found the practical tips on how to be mindful with my own family and myself, incredibly helpful and they have benefited me both personally and professionally.
In our ‘relentless treadmill’ lives, the practice of mindfulness should be mandatory both at work and at home and Nicky navigates this terrain in a fun and practical way.”

"Thank you so much for yesterday evening! It was exactly what I needed and I am so pleased to have started the journey to deepening my understanding and consciousness about stress. It’s great to know that “science” needs me to be joyful and kind to myself in order to be healthy!"
~ Louise Chennells ~
“Thanks so much for the talk last night. I’ve been on such a high since then and couldn’t stop talking about it when I came home. I even got my son to do some breathing this morning as he came through crying about something his brother had done to him.”
~ Julie Sargent ~
“I wanted to say a huge thank you for sharing your knowledge and insights with us. I’ve had so much positive feedback – people have been popping their heads in my office since the talk to say thank you for organising it and telling me how they are already using the tools in their lives and it’s making a difference to how they are feeling and sleeping!”
~ Caryn Schalit VentureWeb ~
“I’m writing to say how much I enjoyed your talk at The Ridge School a few weeks’ ago. I’m sorry it’s taken me a while to write, but I’m trying no longer to put pressure on myself to achieve a million things each day!”
