Hi, my name is Nichi!

I am a passionate clinical psychologist, self & wellness educator, entrepreneur, researcher, writer, small business owner, woman, and busy mum.  I also have a previous background in hairdressing and business.  Through my journey involving over a decade of psychological training, working in rural business, working professionally with people in an intimate space, I have been able to identify areas that motivate and inspire me.  I feel great satisfaction and happiness from being able to use my diverse range of skills to empower others to find their potential with purpose.  I utilise evidence-based, psychological strategies that include positive psychology, mindfulness, energy psychology, schema therapy, emotional freedom techniques, mindset and body-based skills, developing grit and resilience, among other skills.  I like to work from a holistic perspective to integrate all aspects of self and promote growth, fulfillment and happiness.

My journey…

To share a little about what led me to embark on creating my wellness collective.  After a tough and long journey to become a parent I became unwell.  I was faced with the possibility of a serious lung condition in which my future flashed before my eyes.  I was very fortunate though to get well after about six months. This, along with many other challenging traumas and health struggles, my perspective on life changed.  Life is short and I chose to embrace it. This was not just an overnight light switch flick, it was a process of developing self, confidence, wellbeing and mindset – the journey to self! While trying to work hard, parent and be a partner lovingly, and be a diligent student I completed three psychology degrees, business certificates, and research.  Through the struggles I learnt that I need to bring it right back to building the relationship with myself, reflecting on what it is that I want for me, and how to get there.  Now, the focus is on health, wellness, self-compassion and working towards meaningful goals.  I enjoy nothing more than being able to share my knowledge and skills to help others thrive and flourish in life, ignite their soul, while finding their purpose.
