Nikdavis.com is a place where we can have honest, authentic and sometimes difficult conversations about this mad thing called life .
It is a combination of many facets - spirituality, philosophy, research, experiences of change at a personal and organisational level and an endless curiosity and questioning about life and all that it has to offer.
This website is an invitation to other curious people - to join the conversation, to consider new perspectives, to challenge the status quo, to create and embrace change and to help others to do so too, to have the difficult conversations, to do the real work we need to do in order to understand ourselves and therefore others better and to be all that we can be, by living life with our eyes, hearts and minds wide open.

Let's challenge the status quo.
And perhaps one way to start, is simply to start by doing something, anything differently - take a challenge, do something never considered before, don't overthink it, don't worry about a ROI, just do it and watch how one brave and creative action can open the doors to many more.
In the same way that a midwife brings a soul into this world, a soul midwife helps a soul to depart this world.
My role as a soul midwife is to support anyone with an end of life illness, from the point of diagnosis to their final departure with love, care and compassion.
I am there to provide emotional, psychological and spiritual support, to enable each person to have the most peaceful and content death, that they are able to.
I work purely on a pro bono basis as a soul midwife, no payment is required, my services are given with love.
I cannot solve grief and loss, but I can accompany people on their journey and hold a light for them during the darkest of days.
I believe in owning our truth and sharing our authentic selves without shame, fear of prejudice or judgement. And the more of us that can do that, means that more of us can do that and that is truly liberating, empowering and really quire beautiful - the words 'me too', are perhaps some of the most powerful we have.
Death, grief, depression, parenting, debt, addiction, the menopause, organisational change, life lessons, conscious capitalism, sustainable living, defining new ways to live, work and play, are just a few of the topics that have exercised my mind so far.
All written with love, honesty and a desire to help us all live more joyful, meaningful and sustainable lives.
I try to live my life as fully and authentically as possible and as part of that quest, I observe many things - about myself, about others and about life. And I like to share my thoughts, honestly and in the moment.
So, please do take a peek to see if my words can help you too.
