Nicola is the published author of the internationally acclaimed book: Mindful Little Yogis which has been endorsed by leading organisations including nasen, SEN magazine, Pride magazine, Childcare Professional and Mindfulness First USA.
Mindful Nicstars, was created whilst Nicola worked as a special needs teacher alongside therapists, education psychologists and other specialists within classroom settings for almost 10 years. She was surprised at the social pressures and academic demands placed on children from as young as 4 years old to conform. Nicola saw firsthand how this triggered anxieties and other mental states in children. With less public funding in place, many children have reduced access to the much needed support they need in schools. Nicola decided to integrate mindfulness, coaching and therapy tools within her classroom to help kids access the curriculum, learn to communicate their feelings and achieve mental clarity.
Today, Nicola continues to work with children but also supports adults and professional organisations. As a passionate mental health advocate, she uses her wealth of skills, experience and specialist training, to deliver mindfulness and wellbeing interventions, using cognitive behavioural approaches. She holds a PGCE (with QTS), Advanced Diploma in Counselling, is a Certified Mindfulness & CBT Practitioner and is a trained Mental Health First Aider.
