Nikki has supported me through some pretty tough realizations and very old Trauma, I felt held and heard through the entire process and able to arrive at solutions that came from my knowing and possible to achieve, whilst still stretching me to reach for some stars.
If you are looking to make some changes in your life, or just want to assess your current situations, Nikki will be able to guide you through the process with skill and compassion.
I will return to The Recovery Wellness Clinic should the need for reflection or change arise and I am happy to recommend Nikki without hesitation.

Nikki speaks from a place of love for what she does and it shines through in the sessions, encouraging and engaging. I would normally be very afraid to open up being an introvert but Nikki creates a space where my opinion matters and she has an uncanny ability to encourage engagement on deep matters.
- Cairan (Durban)
Nikki is so passionate about her work and the way she teaches is kind of magical. Nikki's skills are creative, supportive, interesting and challenging. She is an excellent listener and she is affable.
Truly is a wonderful person. Genuine, passionate, hardworking, fun, and it shows without her facilitating and one- on- one coaching.
She inspired me to grow and change as a person, to look for possibilities, to believe in what if, but must of all she helped me to become a better me.
Nikki truly empowered and inspired me to be my authentic self by being an awesome facilitator and coach and for that I will always be very thank full.
