She tells us all about her ADHD that she feels is a truly positive strength, TV fame and about her work as a healer.
Nikki certainly has charm and the ability to put people at ease quickly. She has an air of positivity that doesn't give away her early struggles with a disability unrecognised until adulthood and other life journey experiences that are remarkable and in the process of being put into a book about her life. She is a busy and sought after woman. She is the lead psychic on Shadow Chasers, a popular TV show on Made in Bristol, that investigates reputedly paranormal hotspots across the West Country. She also works as a healer offering many wellbeing treatments and as a member of the LGBT was an official reporter for PRIDE Bristol 2016.
Despite how busy she is, she has always had time and energy and a real passion for disability issues and providing nurturing spaces and therapies for the Parent Carers and has a great offer for all SGPC members. She is so passionate about working with Parent Carers she jumped at the chance to be an ambassador for us. This passion and drive comes from her own experiences with disability and more recently from being a carer for a dear friend. We got together to ask her a few questions about her background, her experiences and any hints and tips she may have for those with ADHD within our community.
