Nikole E

Peer Counsellor

Hi, I’m Nikole (She/Her),

I’m passionate about the practise of truth, kindness, compassion, gratitude, healthy relationships, evidence-based and holistic health, our planet, and doing the work so as to live my best life I can and not allowing my past to dictate my present or future.

I’m also into books, art, music, and connecting with nature - you’ll find me walking or with my kids and our dog on the beach often. I meditate and drink herbal tea every morning. I read at least a chapter of something every day. I write down five things I’m grateful for every night. These are some of the practical ways I manage my mental health.

I’m 5’2” (just). I’m a mum of four kids (aged 11-21) and two fur babies (a poodle mix and a rag doll). I would describe myself as an extroverted introvert.

I believe that we all matter. That we are all enough. That we all need a place to connect, share our stories and to be heard. This is how we can find meaning within and from our experiences. Knowing this, is a way that can lead to hope and healing.

I have lived experience of acute anxiety, depression, toxic/abusive relationships, emotional eating/drinking, postnatal depression, grief, and as a parent of children with diagnosed acute general anxiety disorder and depression with suicidal ideation.

My academic qualifications include a Diploma in Counselling, Advanced Diploma in Counselling and Family Therapy, Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy, and Master of Counselling. I have further education in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and ACT for Trauma.

I think that about sums me up in a somewhat brief version. I’m so glad that you decided to visit Peerhear and warmly welcome you to explore.
