Hi and welcome, so glad you found me. Let me spend afew moments introducing myself. It’s important I feel that you know about me as working with me involves opening up, and that means me too!

I moved to Nantes, in France in 2001 with my then french husband (now divorced) and two children. I am in fact living my childhood dream- since the age of about 12 I had always wanted to live here and I can honestly say I feel more at home here than ever. I can help you live your dream.

My Reiki journey started in 2011 after a spam emailing telling me to do Reiki!!! I had no idea what Reiki was but knew I had to do- that is the Reiki effect! I was told it would change my life forever and it did, in the most amazing ways. Reiki is my path and has opened so many doorways, it’s incredible. I eventually became a Reiki teacher practitioner in 2013. This journey led me to letting go of so much , both materialistic and emotionally. A difficult part of my journey lasted 4 years, a place of debt, worry and fear. Through this time, as hard and as a dark as it was it allowed to get to a point where I could let go of fear, worry, and  live happily regardless of the outside world. It taught me so much and gave me a huge toolbox to use in coaching, such as gratitude, changing beliefs, letting go of fear, finding inner happiness, staying positive.

During this time I got back in touch with my creative self and remembered my dream of being an artist when I was young. I began to express my feelings through painting, a way of silencing my mind, being in the present and just going with the flow, before I knew I had totally refueled my passion, and also my passion for colour ( I have previously trained a colour consultant). During my work as an English training coach I found myself coaching clients more and more over their fears, their doubts, and helping them transform their lives at crucial points in their life (most clients are unemployed), I was putting all that I had learnt on my journey into practice and the results were incredible. Clients turning towards their dreams, reliving their passions, overcoming fears, changing their beliefs, gaining confidence. So too during my Reiki sessions, clients opened up about their problems, I gave them new perspectives, changing the way the they look at the world. As I talked about art people would say “oh but I can’t paint, I am useless”, so I began to run workshops to show people anyone can paint-we just don’t have to try to be Leonardo!! And they were a success. I saw how the way people painted were a reflection of how they were in everyday life, and this led me to see that coaching, art and reiki are intertwined. That art is a tool for coaching, as is my work with colour and energy.

Your Healing Artist is born!

    Hi Nicky
    lovely synchronicity to find your blog! I have been a Reiki master for 24 years (similar path!) & an enrolled on artist Shiloh Sophia’s intential Creativity Treacher training.
    I’ve loved using Sumi when we paint the symbols (as Usui and Takata would have), & in a few weeks, will offer a Reiki 2 class which incorporates Intentional creativity.
