A Natural Way to Heal



Healing is about the mind body and spirit. All of my therapies focus on these aspects of Self in varying degree's and we will work together to discover what  your individual requirements's are at the time. No session with me is ever the same as your energy changes so will each session. We would arrange a video call before you book an appointment. This will enable you to ascertain whether you have a connection with me and also ensure I am the correct healer/therapist for you. If you feel drawn to IKIGAI therapy's site you will probably be searching for an avenue to not only release energy which no longer serves you, but to learn how to shift onto a new path promoting self belief, helping you to incorporate a journey of releasing physical, emotional or mental dis-ease within yourself and in time learning to visualise the possibility of wellness and positivity into your life and ultimately create it into BEING.

I am a Reiki Master and a member of the UK REIKI Federation. However I am fundamentally an Energy healer working with Guides, Spirit and the vibrations within your 7 main Chakras ( Energy centres ) and unless specified by yourself that you just wish to just relax during the healing, which is effective in itself, I prefer to work with you during the session, releasing energy or shifting it.

I grew up very aware of the unseen energy around me. I was like many young children highly sensitive, intuitive, an empath psychic and saw spirit. However, in my late teens I actively blocked this aspect of myself. I focused on my career, brought up a family and lived my life with all its ups and downs. Although not always successful in blocking, I certainly had no intention of opening the door wider to things that others didn't believe in or understand and I felt uncomfortable with. 

During my thirties despite my faith, family and friends, I felt there was something missing. I often had an overwhelming feeling of emptiness and sadness. Everything seemed lifeless, even the leaves on the trees seemed less green than when I was a child. Then in 2012 Divine intervention decided it was time for me to reopen the door and I was compelled to find answers about not only why I was feeling and seeing and knowing things I apparently shouldn't But Who? What? Why? was the Universe? God ? and pretty much every thing. What was life about? There had to be more to this ! Since then my life, outlook, relationships and health took on a whole new dimension and a sense of revival.​ I was sent many challenges and a liitle sprinkling of the magical to keep me on track each one brought me closer to the answers I was seeking. I was then diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and saw this as an opportunity to put into practise some of what I had learnt in addition to using the healing of Reiki. A sequence of events occurred during this time which culminated in my final doctors appointment at the hospital to discuss the medication I would need. Something I had already decided I would not be doing. I went to the appointment with a handful of positive thoughts and a vision of health. I sat there for about forty minutes undergoing various tests and then the doctor announced that I did not have Rheumatoid Arthritis. So did they make a mistake ? Or did I heal myself during that 5 month lead up to the appointment with everything I had learnt from Brandon Bays, Joe Dispenza and the like and from the meditation and self healing work I undertook in earnest to release the anger in my body? Who knows. But I am grateful for not only the fact that I now bounce out of bed in the mornings rather than hobble around for half an hour to warm up my joints and I can sit in the cinema and watch a movie without being in pain but more importantly I no longer have the anger inside me that was once there and the triggers that alerted me to this anger are merely a reminder of what no longer serves me so which ever way you look it, I am very grateful that I had the diagnosis of this serious condition, allowing me to experience the Journey of healing first hand.

I wish to share what I have learnt on my path so that others may also find the joy in their lives or IKIGAI " A reason to live."

I am sincerely grateful for the incredible research done by others, the revelations of those who have been enlightened, the guidance of my teachers at The Open Pathway Retreat Centre and training College who's meditation techniques and teachings have been life changing, and to my reiki Master who has taught me the art of Reiki, giving me the opportunity to channel Divine healing energy to those unable to do it yet for themselves. But I am most grateful to my family and friends for their support and to my wonderful clients who have enriched my life immeasurably.

The greatest thing you have done for me to help my depression and worry is to know that it’s alright to be happy and not to feel guilty . Also to know that things will be alright if you believe that there is help from angels or a stronger power . It seems that if you believe this it will certainly happen . This has changed my life and stopped every days worry and depression . Thank you Nicola


From my first session with Nicola it was apparent that she had a special gift for this type of work. I saw Nicola over a period of a year and during this time she helped me on my healing journey enormously. I found her to be incredibly intuitive with her insights and guidance and I always felt a sense of empowerment and peace after our sessions. Nicola was very generous with her time and was always available to chat by email in between sessions if need be. I can´t recommend her highly enough.


Nicola is an extraordinary natural-born healer. A session with her is a powerful experience of stress relief and spiritual transformation. Nicola helped to release the physical and psychological damage that I felt from a recent trauma.  Nicola is very gentle and kind and truly listens. She has opened my eyes and my heart to the mind-body-spirit connection and the extraordinary power of energies. Today, five months have passed and I feel awakened, grounded, at peace and empowered with my spiritual side. I strongly recommend the Reiki work with Nicola if you need help with pain or issues that you can’t let go of. She is amazing and I am eternally grateful to her. She is truly gifted.
