""This is ME day 2019 was the most amazing experience. Nicola created a beautiful safe space in a perfect venue. I felt totally able to share my thoughts and feelings in a supportive environment.

When’s the 2020 one? I’m booking and bringing a buddy!." Tracy



Imagine walking into the rustic barn and being welcomed with open arms, fresh coffee and cake.


As you look around your breath is taken away as you take in the shimmer of the light from the chandeliers and

 the warmth of the wooden beams as they hold a safe space for you to just be. 

Imagine focused time to truly connect with your heart without any feelings of worry or guilt about what else you should be doing.

You will feel part of a collective group of women who have come together to share a common goal to ignite their courage and be happy in their skin.


As you take a seat and the day begins you are invited to release your inner strength and move through limiting beliefs and "stuck stories".

Imagine a day to yourself

""This is ME 2019 - The opportunity to spend time on and for myself with other like-minded ladies. I cannot overstate the value of this" Jo


""This is ME 2019 - I can’t thank you enough for the personalisation of the day and making each one of us feel special, individual and strong" Alison



My mission in life is to encourage as many people as possible to feel happy in their own skin and able to live life from a place of choice.

I have designed and created the retreat myself. It is intended to help you focus on leading a life with more courage and able to access areas of your life that you have felt too afraid to explore.  My intention is for you to feel supported and nurtured to release your inner strength.


After all - without change there would be no butterflies, so I want to acknowledge your courage by stepping out of your chrysalis.


It’s time for you to spread your wings, radiate in your beauty and be the best version of yourself.


I will take you through several activities to explore how you can channel self belief, embrace the rhythm of your renewed energy and unleash your curiosity of what's next for you.


It’s time to be enlightened to the possibilities that life holds for you from this place.


The workshop is facilitated by myself. I am a certified coach who focuses not just on action but on your behaviours and mindset too.

The workshop is not therapy based.



Why take a trip to the barn?

It's time to start living your life from a fulfilled and wholehearted place. 


The day retreat will offer you a safe space to step out of the hustle and bustle of everyday life

and surround yourself with beautiful countryside, a cosy barn and the space to just pause and breathe.


You will be in the company of like minded women who want to connect with their courage and step out as their real selves.

During the day you will:

Explore what courage means to you and how you can invite it into your life to break through stuck stories and limiting beliefs




 Embrace the rhythm of your renewed energy and release your creative side 


Be gifted a nurturing space to connect with your heart and discover what you can appreciate about you when you let go of the labels

you currently own around your image and self limiting beliefs 


Have dedicated time to draw on your courage enabling you to feel empowered and able to make decisions in life that give you

choice, fulfilment and purpose and ultimately freedom to be YOU




 Make a promise to yourself of what action you will take to make this happen


Ultimately I want to make sure you leave the retreat knowing that:

You are enough as you are
You get to CHOOSE what happens next
That you have the strength within you to be everything you want to be


Are you ready to find your courage?

""Nicola's "This is ME Retreat" was a fantastic opportunity to hear some really inspirational presentations, along with some very useful practical steps I can take to blossom into being the best version of myself that I can be. There is always work to be done but Nicola and her fellow facilitators showed me that I CAN do it, and I'd like to thank them for reminding me to find the fun, to breathe, to choose self compassion and be courageous" Tracy


""Nix - you are truly amazing and your efforts in putting the day together are simply nothing short of sheer brilliance. Your belief and conviction in this and your wonderful kind caring compassionate attitude to all your endeavours really shine through and I’m sure we are all richer for being lucky enough to have experienced the magic of This is Me, well done" Melanie

Richard Parker

Richard Parker has been guiding and facilitating Drum Circles for over 14 years and is attentive in supporting individual learning styles and skill.  His inspiration is fed by his passion for community, accessibility and inclusivity where he finds a Drum Circle to be an amazing embodiment of this expression. Richard's style has come through many years of African Drumming combined with creative improvisation and free expression, bringing an uplifting, dynamic and heartfelt experience.


Drumming is a great way to bring people together, as the rhythms create a sense of connectedness that is felt within the whole group. It's also a chance to express ourselves without words, has the power to lift our spirit and facilitates a sense of well being and relaxation.


We will be playing on a range of West African Drums including the Djembe, with facilitated rhythms, exercises and games to inspire and encourage all to play. Drums are provided and no prior musical experience is needed. 


Drumming is proven to:

- Reduce Stress, Tension & Anxiety whilst increasing Energy

- Build Confidence & Motivation

- Inspire Creative Thinking

- Create Connection & Community
