Nicola is the published author of the internationally acclaimed book: Mindful Little Yogis which has been recommended by industry experts, including SEN magazine, nasen, Childcare Professional and Twinkl Educational Publishing. 


Mindful Nicstars, was created whilst Nicola worked as a qualified 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, as a passionate mental health advocate, Nicola uses her wealth of skills, experience and specialist training, to deliver academic learning programmes, mindfulness workshops and wellbeing interventions, including cognitive behavioural therapy. She holds a PGCE (with QTS), Advanced Diploma in Counselling and is a Certified Mindfulness & CBT Practitioner. Click here to find out what some industry professionals have to say about Nicola.
