Nikki Heaton Bennett is a psychotherapist, hypnotherapist and coach.
Nikki started her private practice 10 years ago, embracing her passion to help people become free from restricting and limiting beliefs. This has taken her on an interesting journey of professional and personal development whereby she now integrates her experience alongside her knowledge to deliver therapy that works.
On starting her practice, Nikki was made redundant from project managing a young people’s counselling service due to a merger, at the time she was a single mum to a 4 year old boy. Nikki’s son was born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate so together they have negotiated the life challenges and operations that this has brought for them.
Not one to roll over, Nikki created a way not only to support her son and herself but also to allow her to do what she does best – help people move from existing to living.
Motivating, compassionate, down to earth and realistic in nature, Nikki is a consummate professional who brings humour and a relatable quality to the sessions, making you feel at ease instantly alongside feeling you are in safe hands.
Nikki’s professional experience involves working extensively with trauma and abuse, and she has provided therapeutic intervention to high schools, the police, social care, teachers, employment assistance programmes, councils, large corporate organisations alongside private clients. As Nikki has found there is no single approach that works for every individual to help deal with their life experiences, each intervention is tailored to the individual.
