“Working with Nicolle as a co-creator and facilitator of the Live Your Best Story Retreat for the past five years has been enlightening, deeply nourishing and is always fun. As a co-facilitator she seamlessly moves between leading from the front and transitioning to leading from the behind. Nicolle’s highly intuitive and life-affirming approach honours the unique and sensitive needs of each person she supports. An exceptional somatic listener, skilled yet organic, direct yet subtle, and above all, is a supreme joy to learn from.”

I invited Nicolle Nattrass to deliver her Creative Journaling for Self-Care Workshop in Module 2 for DEVA Accelerator , 20 Week Online Training Program because it offers a transformative experience that every DEVA should have. The feedback that I received from the graduates of the DEVA program was clear. Nicolle’s ability to guide participants through the process of self-expression and reflection using various creative journaling techniques is unparalleled. With her insightful prompts and gentle encouragement, Nicolle creates a safe place for deep exploration and personal growth. This workshop helps others to tap into their emotions and prioritize self-care in a truly meaningful way“.

I came to the Creative Journaling for Self-Care course at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, when we were being told to shelter in place. I found myself with a lot of anxiety and fear and too much time on my hands for thinking. Nicolle’s engaging and warm style and her gentle encouragement was just what I needed. Her course allowed me to find a place of calm and creativity amid a storm of crazy. In addition, the 30-minute one-on-one session proved to be invaluable – Nicolle urged me to open up to the idea of creating based on images instead of words, and that is not only fun but a welcome relief from all the words around us all the time. Thank you Nicolle!
