Hi, I'm Nikki...
I'm so glad you have found my website and I warmly welcome you to join me on a journey where I hope you will find my words and the message they portray, both inspiring and healing.
We all suffer or struggle at one time or another in our lives, and some of us have bigger demons to face than others. But what an amazing thing it can be, to realise our adversities can help us, rather than hinder us; we can grow and learn to be stronger, ultimately becoming the best version of ourselves.
I have always had a passion for self development, but I went on a crash course in 2019 when I was hit by a tragedy. It may sound bizarre, to say I am grateful for breaking my back and damaging my spinal cord, but I would not have been taken on this new path of finding my voice and using it to help others, had it not happened. Neither would I have been so humbled by learning to walk again - something which has taught me to embrace every day with love and gratitude.
My memoir 'Catch Me if I Fall', was written during the second lockdown and is intended to give strength and courage to others who have have been silenced by the stigma of mental illness. It is a book that shows my personal journey to overcome and conquer both my physical and mental strength. Writing the book brought about a new 'awakening' of myself, leading me to re-address my life and career to better align with my new 'authentic' way of being.
I look forward to sharing my writing and speaking journey with you. Let's unite in a world where we should all be supporting and guiding one another, with kindness, and positivity. Let's be brave, and surpass our self-imposed limitations in life, break down the chains and 'stamp on stigma'.
For those who want to follow my writing updates... I am now writing contemporary fiction and my first collection of poetry - 'A Mother's Lament' is released on 31st January 2023.
Love and gratitude,
