Being In Heart: Urban Retreat


This retreat is truly life changing. Nicky's facilitation is so powerful and the whole weekend is aimed to create healing through every possible angle. Emotional work, shifting mindset, yoga, chanting, ceremony, energy healing and food. It is the only retreat I've ever done that will offer this depth of healing in such a short time frame.

About the retreat


So much of how our lives unfold is dictated by the state of our heart. If our heart has been broken in the past, without proper healing, these breaks will effect every single aspect of our lives (whether we like it or not). The relationships we find ourselves in, the jobs we choose, the way we do or do not take care of ourselves, our creative expression and of course our habits, patterns and behaviours.


When our hearts are whole again we can begin to experience joy, light, abundance, play, connection, intimacy, fulfilment. When our hearts are whole again we can begin to live, feel and be back in alignment with our truest selves. I truly believe each one of us was born into this world as an abundant open space of light, love and limitless possibility.  The more stories and habits we can release that we picked up along the way, the more we can return back to alignment within ourselves – our truest most authentic place to be.


Spaces on this retreat are limited – I only take 14 participants to allow each person to receive the attention and holding they so deserve.

Retreat Intention


My intention for you over these two days is to help you break free of the negative beliefs, thought patterns and stories that have been causing blockages in your life. To create a deep and powerful healing of your beautiful heart, and connection with your truest, most empowered self. To create a safe holding space for you to let go of anything stuck and leave it behind for good. 
When you leave on Sunday you will be feeling lighter, freer and more in your heart allowing you to feel more deeply connected to those around you, to your dreams, to your visions and to yourself.


Warning: This weekend is extremely powerful. Please ONLY attend if you are ready to start feeling and living from a much more empowered, joyful, abundant, loving and open-hearted place throughout your life!!

Who is the retreat for?


This retreat is for EVERYONE who is ready to start doing deeper work on themselves! Those that are ready to move towards living free of destructive habits, patterns and belief systems that hold them back. These two days are not a ‘retreat’ in the traditional sense.  They are two days of deep and powerful emotional transformational work that will give you the opportunity to leave on the Sunday feeling like a new and renewed human being.


*If you have been feeling stuck, blocked or lost in your life and are wanting to reconnect with possibility, inspiration and light within yourself? This retreat is for you.


*If your life is being dictated by negative beliefs, thought patterns, behaviours and habits and are longing to feel more alive, positive, empowered and free? This retreat is for you.


*If you are craving time for yourself to be nourished, supported, listened to and loved unconditionally? This retreat is for you.


*If you don’t know what you need, but you know you need something that will help you feel better about yourself and your life? This retreat is for you.


Note: If you have attended this retreat before it is absolutely fine for you to come again. This often allows for an even deeper transformation to take place as you will come with the most recent version of yourself. Some participants like to come each year for a powerful heart tune up! You are all welcome x


Emotional Healing & Mindset Work


I am a certified Integrative Counsellor & Transformational Life Coach. Throughout the two days I will lead you through powerful group sessions to get to the core of what may be causing the blocks in your life. Allowing the space, holding and insight for deep and powerful emotional healing and transformational breakthroughs to occur. We will get to the heart of any negative limiting mindsets and rewrite new ones aligned with your most empowered authentic selves. These groups are completely closed, safe, confidential and loving circles of women where you will be able to share together, heal together and support each other to achieve the breakthroughs I intend for you. We will work hard but the results are life-changing. You will be able to leave behind more of what weighs you down, allowing you to feel the magical flow of light, love, joy and possibility of your life again.

I do genuinely feel this retreat has transformed me. I feel a sense of release that I have never felt before. It just feels like something has shifted and I am a new improved, more important version of myself. I can’t thank you enough Nicky.
– Anna, Retreat Participant

Bodywork & Movement


We store so much emotional memory and stagnation in our bodies. Therefore I feel it is imperative to have bodywork and movement available when doing deep emotional and transformational work. I have found this to provide extremely powerful results in helping people release the old, move stagnation and let in new beautiful energy. Each day will begin with a 90min yoga & chanting session led by Paula Andreewitch, allowing any stuck and stagnant energy to move through more freely. We also have the incredible Annalisa Blake, Reiki Master, Masseuse & Psychic Healer, on hand throughout both days giving treatments to all participants who wish to have one.


Both these offerings allow for the most powerful opportunities to help release old stuck trauma, emotions, stagnant energy and release creating space for new, abundant, flowing life-force to flow through once more.

Meditation & Ceremony


I am not religious but I do believe in the welcoming of higher forces. Giving space for the magical to occur, the unplanned and abundant limitless expansion. This may sound a bit woo woo to you but do not fret – all this means is it allows each person to step out of their mind/head space and flow more from their energy heart space, which may feel unfamiliar at first. But it is very, very healing.


I will lead the group through guided heart opening meditations which can be extremely powerful for releasing stuck emotion. There will be a 60min Crystal Bowl Sound Healing Session which is a very powerful way to allow healing to occur whilst switching our minds off. We will complete a Letting Go and Intentions ceremony allowing each participant to actively let go of what they wish to leave behind and send up powerful intentions of who they wish to step into from that point forward. We will complete the whole weekend with an abundant celebration ceremony where each participant will be able to receive the love and acknowledgement they so deserve.


Over past retreats there have been many unexplained and magical occurrences that I can only ever account to opening up the portals to receiving support and love from higher forces in this way, to which I am always extremely thankful. Also, the friendships and bonds that have been formed from these sacred two days have created lasting friendships amongst women on similar healing journeys, which to me is a priceless gift.


Food & Nourishment


As a Certified Specialist Healing Macrobiotic Chef, I have seen the importance and power of the nourishment we put into our bodies.  Therefore, if we are going to take the time to do deep emotional and transformational work we need to also make sure the food we eat is supporting this.


All the food provided over both days will be hand cooked by myself and my team, chosen carefully and specifically to support where the participants are in the healing process.  This creates a deep sense of mother nourishment, comfort, love and holding adding to the healing process.


All food over the weekend will be dairy free, refined sugar free and plant-based.  If you have any further dietary requirements please do let me know on booking.


The Venue


42 Acres is one of the most stunning venues in London, not only as a space but also energetically. Created solely for transformational workshops and events to take place, there has been so much deep healing taken part in this space and I promise you, you will be able to feel it. Within walking distance of both Liverpool Street Station and Old Street Station, it is extremely accessible for those travelling in from outer London. There is also free parking outside the venue from 1:30 on the Saturday onwards throughout the rest of the weekend.


Once we begin the retreat, everything will take place in the same venue space and I suggest to participants to stay within the space throughout the work, besides when you go home to sleep on Saturday evening. This will allows us to drop and soften deeply into a sacred, safe and healing process as well as deepening bonding within the group.

It's hard to put into words just how profound and powerful the weekend was. It's such a scary prospect to take a leap into the unknown and be so vulnerable but we all felt so safe, supported and tightly held by Nicky and her beautiful team that it created space for some real magic to happen. Witnessing the bravery of all the amazing women who came together to support each other and gave so much of themselves was so moving, and seeing the transformation in each of us by the end of the retreat was incredible. I feel like a huge shift has taken place and I have come to realisations that have allowed me to feel so much lighter and clearer and no doubt make big changes in my life. You will be in the safest, warmest hands with Nicky and her team & would wholeheartedly recommend this retreat to anyone who is wanting to connect to themselves and their truth. THANK YOU with all my heart.

I do genuinely feel this retreat has transformed me. I feel a sense of release that I have never felt before. It just feels like something has shifted and I am a new improved, more important version of myself. I can’t thank you enough Nicky.
– Anna, Retreat Participant
In the craziness of life this was just the tonic to slow down and bring back perspective to my life. Not only do you mentally feel lighter, your body feels like it has had years taken off of it. The face glows for all the realease work that has taken place. It’s prescriptive and vital to our well being. It’s definately going to be part of my life moving forward.
– Claudia, Retreat Participant
It's hard to express in words how amazing and beautiful this retreat was. I learnt so much about myself and how to be in my heart, I feel like I've come home to me. Everything was just perfect, the food, the wonderful group I got to share the experience with, the yoga, healing, everything - even the music that supported us through. I'm so grateful that I got to share this weekend with you and all the other women on the retreat.
– Nicky, Retreat Participant
I can’t describe how incredibly healing and restoring this weekend retreat with Nicky was. I’m not sure what I was expecting but having worked with Nicky on a one to one basis over the last few months I knew it would be pretty powerful stuff. There is something so amazing about doing this sort of work within a group. And I feel a strong connection with each one of them even after this short time. The work we did required such trust and support. We all put ourselves out there, which is a scary prospect, but it is done in such a supported and safe environment and the results have been beautiful; how amazing to watch us all come back to ourselves. To see light and joy and transformation in each one of us was just amazing. I really feel like I have come home to my truth. I can’t recommend this enough. THANKYOU so much Nicky and your wonderful team.
– Susie, Retreat Participant
I joined the being in heart retreat as someone who was existing and surviving in life. Thinking that life is always a challenge to overcome. I believed I had become immune to feelings (my own and others). I couldn't have been further from the truth. Nicky created a safe environment allowing me to feel again and more importantly allowing me to love again. And not to allow myself retreat or hide from feelings no matter how uncomfortable. Beware though, this is very very powerful work!!! Be ready to let stuff go!!!
