Retreats

A safe, loving space

I offer both online and in-person retreats, creating and holding a safe, loving space for everyone who attends. My retreats offer a deep dive into life and explore the joys and struggles of being human. They offer an opportunity to discover more about your true self, whilst experiencing freedom and healing from what has wounded, constricted or held you back. As a retreat attendee you will find yourself loved and deeply seen, you will make connections and new friendships, and you will leave with a deeper connection to yourself, The Divine and others. I don’t pretend to have all the answers, I won’t bring advice or give opinions, but I do create a space in which you can discover these for yourself in communion with The Beloved and other people seeking to grow and transform.

Feedback from past retreats

It was a wonderfully rich retreat that exceeded my expectations by a long way.

Nicky provides a safe space, where all are welcome. She offers reassurance and comfort and I have gratefully benefitted from her wisdom and spiritual guidance.

The storytelling retreat… has gone beyond what I could have imagined. I found deaths I didn’t know needed to be explored and the whole process has both resolved some things, put others into perspective and started me off on my next journeying.

I had very high expectations and hopes – and these were completely exceeded! What a wonderful space and time together.

I never imagined I would gain so much; but I now that this experience will be following me on the next part of my life.

Your qualities of quiet gentleness, wisdom of experience and confident allowing and loving presence helped me to feel safe.

Nicky creates a safe and loving space for us to be together. I found the retreat profoundly healing, with plenty of fun and humour to keep me smiling.

This time away has far exceeded my expectations. The journey has been so helpful; the cocoon I was in is starting to break open, I’m seeing things more clearly.
