Testimonials from our happy customers...
“The JD Group has worked with Nicki for just over 3 years now. During this time, the Group as a whole, and individuals within, have benefited greatly from her professionalism, specialist knowledge, and calm and friendly persona.
Nicki has not only created and delivered invaluable training for our teams, but she has influenced policy and a change in culture across our Group. The sessions she runs are informative, inclusive, and inspiring, and they have always been well received by every team.
Nicki is approachable and available to all whom need her support and we are looking forward to working with her again in the future.”
"Nicki has helped our organisation in a variety of ways at both a group and individual staff member level. Her experience and guidance on gauging employee opinions has been invaluable to us. The data from staff was presented in an understandable way which we were able to interpret and Nicki was able to help us act upon. We will certainly continue to use Nicki for staff feedback, focus groups and individual staff intervention where needed."
"We are delighted with the positive impact that ShineTime has produced for our children. Our confidence in ShineTime has led to a commitment to their Train the Trainer programme so that we can ensure delivery across all of our schools. It has been inspiring to work with Nicki and benefit from her commitment, passion and expertise."
"We have used the ShineTime materials over a number of years. In nearly all the children we have worked with we have seen a significant improvement in their confidence and self-esteem. I will always remember one pupil who had struggled all the way through primary school to control her anxiety. Following the ShineTime programme she changed considerably. On the morning of her first Year 6 SAT paper (something which would have terrified her previously) she walked into school with a huge smile on her face. When I asked how she was she simply replied "I am in my Ring of Power of course I'll be absolutely fine". For her the programme enabled her to improve her self-belief and know that she could tackle anything positively."
"In school we have some young children with worries and anxieties. Some children have lower levels of confidence or have trouble with home or school routines. NO TIME LIKE NOW have been able to work closely with teachers and families to develop a bespoke program to meet the children's needs. With help from NO TIME LIKE NOW, we have learned to deliver simple and effective strategies that have supported improvements with children's happiness and confidence. The children involved in the program have all made big steps forward, measured through simple questionnaires. We have been impressed with the increased levels of happiness and relaxation that the children have."
Having Nicki help me with my anxiety and depression has really changed my life. My depression and anxiety caused me to be pessimistic, self-destructive and extremely sad. I hated the person I was and everything I did. Since completely the sessions I have noticed my depression and anxiety ease considerably, not only that the therapy has helped me to quit smoking and cut down on my alcohol and caffeine intake which was causing a massive impact on my anxiety. I have become more confident in myself and the decisions I make. I would highly recommend her. Absolutely wonderful!
“The process took just three sessions, and the effects were significant after just one session. Nicki made me feel at ease and relaxed. I can’t say enough how effective this therapy was. From the first phone call with Nicki through to completing the three sessions has changed my life for the better in such a short time. My stress and anxiety no longer control me. I have my life back.”
