Nikki Ayles

Nikki’s career path has taken her on a journey through Marketing and Brand Management, Commercial Training, Coaching and L&D Consultancy, until more recently when she found her ‘calling’ – to help people flourish and become the best version of themselves. She’s now addicted to the warm glow she gets from inspiring and guiding people to spend more of their time in the 2% zone.


In addition to delivering a wicked Art of Being Brilliant session, Nikki’s specialist areas are Resilience, Strengths, Wellbeing Coaching and Mindfulness. For her, it all adds up to the same thing – helping people upgrade to ‘best possible self’.

Nikki’s proud to call herself a psychology nerd. She loves it! Psychology is her hobby and, as such, she’s accumulated quite a collection; MSc in Psychology, MSc in Positive Psychology (MAPP), she’s a Fellow of the Positive Psychology Guild and an Associate Member of the International Society for Coaching Psychologists. And guess what, she also gets to practise her hobby as a lecturer at the University of Worcester’s Psychology department. Nikki’s currently working towards the ultimate nerdy collectable, a PhD in Positive Psychology, researching the power of nature for wellbeing. There’s more. We could tell you that Nikki’s also a Master Strengths Coach (StrengthScope™) and a certified Mindfulness Teacher, but our word count is nearly up!

Outside of work, Nikki loves being out in nature with her slightly daft miniature Dachshunds, Paddington and Isabella. She enjoys throwing herself into new challenges (most recently surfing and SUP), distance running, devouring good books and spending quality time with friends and family.

‘We thoroughly enjoyed welcoming Nikki to our Wellness Day for members of our team at The Cornwall College Group. Nikki offered some great motivational insights and applicable strategies to support our under-pinning ‘why factor’ of who we are and why we do what we do.’

‘Thank you for delivering such an energising session last Wednesday. Over the course of the rest of the day I received nothing but positive feedback from the team. Having some time together, away from the office was just what we all needed, and the content, style and length of your session was spot on.’
Stratford Town Trust

‘This has been the best PTL I have ever attended. It was what it said on the tin – all about us. I have taken so much away to think about. Thank you.’
