About The Stress Specialist

When life sends you in another direction...

Nicky started The Stress Specialist following a very personal struggle with stress, anxiety and depression.  She found it difficult to find the right help when she needed it and as such, it took longer than it needed to for her to recover.   She also recognised that the companies she worked for didn't seem to comprehend the positive impact that could be felt by not only supporting staff when they were struggling but also developing a solid well-being strategy and culture.  Almost every business relies on people therefore it makes sense to understand and look after those people in order to be successful. 

She realised she had an opportunity here to change direction and make a difference in the lives of people who, like her, could transform their own mental well-being and well-being within the workplace.

Nicky's personal mission is to reach as many businesses and individuals as possible to educate, train and support in order to reduce unnecessary levels of stress and anxiety in the workplace.

What happened next

Nicky had worked as a PA,  project manager, operations manager and trainer for many years, so she added to those skills by refreshing and retraining in Counselling, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Hypnotherapy, Coaching, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychological Safety, Mental Health First Aid, Psychology and other more specific area's such as Stress, Anxiety, Autism, Crisis intervention and more.  She is always looking at new ways to increase the tools and knowledge in her toolkit. 

The Stress Specialist was launched in 2017 after Nicky had utilised her skills whilst working as a freelance coach and trainer for a few years - and now today The Stress Specialist is proud to work with schools, businesses, civil service teams and individuals on a daily basis.
