Hello, my name is Nikki. I am a warm, friendly, caring person. I offer a flexible responsive, person-centered support service, that gives people choice and control over the support they would like.
I have set up this service for people who need care or support to independently live a full life and keep well in their own home and be part of their community. I want to offer a range of care to meet your needs and that will be exactly how you want it to be. I am offering a consistent service with the same friendly caring person at the times and days that suit you.
I am passionate about helping people to stay well and improving their health and well-being! I also love to meet new people and hear their stories.
I have spent most of my working life helping people to live the best life they can. I have a professional background as a qualified counsellor and hypnotherapist improving people’s health and wellbeing, together with experience in care and support work covering all ages. I also take meditation, relaxation classes and teach stress-reduction techniques.
I have worked as a counsellor, children’s nanny, residential support worker for people recovering from addiction, community care worker with older adults and a health care support worker in hospital, as well as housekeeper/cleaner.
