HOLISTIC Counselling


I shine a light in the dark corners, so you can discover what is true for you - your own strengths, strategies and solutions for managing and resolving the imbalances in your life. You get to apply what you need to do in your life, without force or having to 'take the counsellor's advice'. It is simply hard-wired so when you hit a situation, you surprise yourself because you now just think differently!

Gain access to areas you won’t get to in traditional counselling. I offer my experience, new reference points, alternatives, options and  insightsso you get to choose what works for you. 

I use all layers of life to support you as you explore your own reasoning and decision-making skills to settle anxiety, depression and rebuild relationships. These skills help you take action to move in a direction where you gain strength, great tools, increased independence and raised self-esteem. 

No issue is off limits -  this is the one place where you can explore in a safe setting. Contact me today or book in for a free 15-minute consultby phone via my website.

RELATIONSHIP Counselling

COUPLES Counselling


Relationships are tricky most of the time. They can be in one of 3 states - functioning, breaking or broken

Counselling is a way for you to turn towards issues that cause you suffering with the guidance of an objective point of view that asks the right questions for you to reveal the answers you need.

Counselling pro-actively helps you improve relationships that seem flat, uninspired or dull.
When things go awry, counselling can help
re-establish happy, healthy and functioning relationships

We usually address it from a 'needs' perspective. When needs are not satisfied, there is a tendency to develop intense feelings. To bottle up is not healthy, and can only make matters worse. Addressing them with a professional counsellor who can help you navigate these feelings can bring relief, and new ways of being to bring about lasting change in your relationships.

My specialist areas include love, sex and relationships, abuse, anxiety and depression.

  • Both or one of you go into shut down regularly.
  • You feel fatigued, resentful, dissatisfied or unhappy.

  • Either or both of you have an addiction problem affecting the relationship.

If these signs are visible in your relationship, book a session today. Online sessions and after hours appointments are available. 



ANXIETY & DEPRESSION Counselling


Anxiety & Depression can be chronic (long term) or acute (short term).  I work with you to locate where this comes from using my holistic approach.

Often anxiety is related to an emotional state, the cause of which is not always readily identifiable.  Anxiety can also have its roots in a number of different places coming from many areas of life:

  • Developmental  or Event trauma
  • Social interactions
  • Family issues
  • Physiological conditions - drugs & alcohol abuse
  • Cultural issues
  • Stress - Environmental, Relationship, Pandemic
  • Workplace stress
  • Bullying etc.

If you have anxiety or depression, the most immediate thing you can do to help yourself is make an appointment straight away. You do not have to suffer - there is so much we can do to reduce anxiety and depression immediately, and then in the longer term, work together to remove the roots there of completely. It is possible to live anxiety free!

Testimonial

I opened up to Nikki about an issue I had regarding small talk.
I wanted to understand why I had such a low tolerance for it. Nikki asked me a number of questions about my internal experience as I was engaged in conversation with people, and she also helped me focus on significant childhood experiences that had impacted on how I connected with others in conversation. What really resonated with me was how Nikki led me to revisit my experiences and how she allowed me to grasp hold of my own truth in order to rejoin things as they should have been. I am now more aware of my own needs and how to meet my needs for connection in a healthy manner. Thanks Nikki, you are so so wise yet gentle.
- Emma Willmann.
