About Nalini

I’m Nalini, qualified women’s wellness coach, yoga teacher and holistic therapist and healer.  I specialise in women’s healing and empowerment, offering expertise, safe space and support for health and well-being.

I started my career in humanitarian aid and delved into holistic therapy and yoga in my spare time.  What started as a hobby seduced me away from my career to live and work in the Ananda spiritual community and yoga retreat centre in Italy for many years, which reshaped my whole life.

I qualified in Aromatherapy and Massage in 1994/95 and have studied and qualified in different holistic therapy approaches over the years including Reiki, Bach Flower Remedies and Body Listening (Body Psychology Skills)

After suffering with intense pain and PMT, I discovered Alexandra Pope’s work on Menstrual Cycle Awareness.  The healing and change were profound, not only with a huge reduction in symptoms, but also leading me on a very empowering journey!

I qualified with Alexandra as a women’s coach and went on to qualify in womb yoga and yoga nidra to provide a rounded and unique approach to well-being.  My approach is authentic and deeply rooted in my own experience.

I am deeply passionate about sharing my knowledge and experience and giving women the tools and support to empower their lives and fully honour who they are.

I work with women holistically on many health challenges including the menstrual cycle, menopause, stress, anxiety and grief.  I also work with Women’s wellness yoga (womb yoga) to support fertility, postnatal, menstrual cycle and menopause.  This softer approach to yoga brings something really special to women, bringing them home to themselves and giving space too for deep rest and renewal.

As a ScarWork therapist, I use this effective treatment for integration and healing, both physically and emotionally, working with women who have had breast surgery including mastectomy, C-Section healing and many other scars.

I offer holistic coaching and therapy sessions for dealing with issues including stress, anxiety, sleep, grief, miscarriage and birth trauma.  I also work with major life changes including divorce and bereavement.

My own life experiences and healing journey enable me to offer you support, empathy and expertise on your own journey into healing and empowerment.

I’m also delighted to offer courses on herbs and healing.  On these fun and interactive workshops, we connect with Mamma earth and use her gifts to make our own products, always with a little bit of magic in the air!  Click here for info on current workshops.

What I observe is how you interact with people, be they students, client , colleagues or acquaintances….is you create a  connection, a space in a conversation or a literal space in a classroom or office that people feel safe and welcome.  (A. Roach)

A great listener, a sounding board for thoughts and ideas, someone who clearly has lots of experience of many different aspects of the world we live in, who has learned from their own experiences and who has enormous compassion for others. (T. Reid)
