Why is this an issue? Because studies show that inability to understand and communicate your emotions creates a lack of feeling understood ‘no one understands how I feel’, a feeling of disconnect with peers ‘I do not connect with my partner’, and a feeling of loneliness.
Mind Health School was created because we believe that fundamentally, everyone should be able to understand their thoughts & emotions and know how to communicate that to others. It is evident today that the education we provide is nothing less than essential for everyone. So that all seems a little serious, doesn’t it?
Meet NikkiHey! I am Nikki, Founder and Mind Health Coach at MHS. I’m an ex-event manager and ex- confused & lost soul turned Mind Health coach and Self Mastery expert who’s never really been afraid to stand out.
I spent most of twenties trying to figure out who I was, flying all over the world attending conferences, spending thousands and thousands to absorb information from the world’s leading experts and having the most fun doing it.
I grew up in a small village in the North of England, my Primary School had less than 100 students and my class, a grand total of 9. I spent my childhood climbing (and falling out of) trees and wearing my brother’s clothes, with parents who loved to travel. A fun fact about me, I used to hide my ‘girly’ clothes and dresses in boxes and drawers away from my parents, so I never had to wear them. Hahaha!
The Turning Point
As I got older, and after experiencing some huge events in my teens including losing a close friend, I began to feel lost. I had a lot of built-up anger and stress which I had no idea what to do with. I knew that some of my behaviours and habits did not reflect who I really was but I had no clue how to help myself.
I was in a job I didn’t like, a relationship that didn’t serve me and I was living at my mum's house.
So I did what most people would do in that situation and quit my job, left the relationship and booked a flight to Thailand, hahaha. (I did this again, a few years later too but this time I flew to Sydney). #queenflightcatcher
The thing was, I knew what I didn’t want in life, but had no idea what I did want. I was (quite literally) lost, confused, frustrated, snappy and just totally lacking direction. I read books like The Slight Edge, Chimp Paradox and The Secret, I bought online courses galore, I attended events with Keynotes like Mel Robbins, John O’Leary and Professor Stephen Peters and I hired my first coach at 23 to help me implement.
The whole time I knew that if this was something I needed help with, there must be so many others feeling like this too.
Fast forward 10 years, I live in Sydney Australia and I have created a life I probably couldn’t have dreamt of at 20, and a business which helps others to learn and embody the tools I learnt throughout my journey with one KEY difference, this way will cost you way less time and save you way more money. That’s basically the purpose of what we do at Mind Health School.
