Nikki – Pilates & Yoga Instructor, Personal Trainer & Centre Owner

Following a running injury, Nikki developed an interest in how the body is affected through postural imbalances. How Pilates and Physiotherapy can support the body through strengthening and re-balancing weak areas and by loosening muscle tightness.

After she started to teach classes, she received more and more referrals from physical therapists and discovered that through developing a fully supported team around the patient approach to treatment, customers were able to reduce chronic pain and were able to return to an active life.

Nikki set up Lutterworth Pilates & Therapy Centre to create a fully integrated support service. For issues such as chronic pain and support more delicate problems such as anxiety and mental health.

Between teaching classes, Nikki can be found at the centre working on the next centre development project and has recently set up working links with Vitality Health Insurance, BUPA,  AXA PPP and MEDILINK to support the centres Chronic Back Pain Management Programme.

Nikki has recently furthered her knowledge through training as a Reformer Pilates and Yoga Instructor

Catherine – Counsellor / Psychotherapist

Cath has always been fascinated by the workings of the mind and why people react in the way that they do.  Why will one person get on with things when another will find excuses not too?  Cath volunteered with Barnardo’s Sure Start for five years, working with young adults who were carers for their parents and, often their siblings too. These young adults looked after parents with mental health issues, disabilities or addictions.  There were times when they did not go to school or did not have clean clothes to wear, as they were looking after their parents which resulted in them being bullied, branded as bad and lazy when in fact they should have been praised and supported. Yet, they felt ashamed.  Cath found that they often needed to talk, just someone to listen to them, to see them as they truly were and not as they were perceived to be. This compelled her to start training as a counsellor and psychotherapist to help people realise that it is ok to be themselves and understand their emotions.

Working in a multi-discipline practice in the heart of Leicester City Centre Cath has experience in working with abuse, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and relationship problems.

Cath is a qualified Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist and is an Individual Member of the BACP and fully GDPR compliant.

Joanne – Counsellor / Psychotherapist

 I am a qualified  counsellor and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).I work within their ethical framework and receive regular clinical supervision.  I have been the client in the room so understand how nervous you may be, and know the growth that can occur through counselling.

By offering a safe, non-judgemental space the therapeutic relationship enables growth and change for the client.  My way of working reinforces this as the client works at their own pace and brings into the room what they chose.  I work in an integrative way, which permits me to work in a way that best suits each client.
