Wellbeing Day Retreats
For the past 6 years I have been running a meditation and relaxation group in Larkhall and more recently ‘Wellbeing Day Retreats’ from my home or in wellbeing centres. During these I guide and support people to experience more peace, calm and contentment in their lives. We are often caught up in stories from our pasts and worries about our lives and futures, therefore I teach mindfulness methods and assist people to bring their awareness to their breath and their bodies, which helps to reduce their thinking and worries.
As our minds are very imaginative, I also guide with visualisation, using colour and all the senses, to encourage the experience of beneficial positive feelings and emotions.
All in all these days give people an opportunity to have some ‘freedom’ from their busy minds and busy lives and to learn some calming coping strategies. Please see below for future dates of my Wellbeing Days and testimonials.
Wellbeing Day Retreat Dates:-
Friday 21st September @10-4.30pm South Wraxall, Bradford on Avon £60 (£20 deposit) Delicious Vegetarian Lunch and Refreshments included (other diets catered for)

“The well-being and mindfulness day which Nicky hosted was absolutely fantastic. The environment was very calm and relaxing, and Nicky made me feel at ease throughout. As someone who struggles to relax and switch off, Nicky really helped me focus on my breathing and stretching to enable me to relax and forget about any worries and stress of every day life. I would thoroughly recommend this course and Nicky was great as an instructor.” JS
“The day retreat was a rare chance to invest in myself. I found the time spent winding down and focussing on being in the present rather than fretting about the future both nourishing and calming. At the end of the day I felt unshackled and realised how exhausted I was from trying to control the uncontrollable.” KB
“Just to say thank you so much for the Well Being day at the beginning of February. It was AMAZING and so good for my head. I hadn’t realised until we started the day quite how tense I was and how knotted my shoulders were but after the breathing, guided visualisation, relaxation and meditation activities throughout the day I felt like a new woman! I felt completely de stressed and my tight neck and shoulders had entirely cleared. I have been using the deep focused breathing and relaxing from my toes up strategies since and am managing to maintain my level of calm so I guess they are strategies for life that will work for me.” CW
“I enjoyed experiencing lots of different types of meditation. Taking the day out just for me helped push my reset button! I felt calm and completely chilled out afterwards! Thank you Nicky!” SB
“Hi Nicky, just to say thank you for a great wellbeing day yesterday – you were so professional and had such a calming influence on me. I’m taking so much away with me and will really try and use the techniques I’ve learnt. Thanks again!” DR
“This was a great relaxation day, offering a beautiful, nurturing and safe space. I loved that we tried quite a few different mindfulness techniques throughout the day, as it then gives everyone an opportunity to find something that works well for them. I personally really liked the laughter yoga as I found it helped release a lot of tension and reminded me to laugh and smile every day!” HD
