Make your own reality
I am sincerely hoping this is of help to others - a podcast I recorded with the delightful Kevin Guthrie, as part of radio Newark’s mental health and well being series.
We discuss what it’s like to live with the menopause and just as importantly, how our partners can support us - it affects our loved ones too.
We also delve into human connection and self care and what this means in practical terms, getting back to ourselves, moving beyond judgement and re-discovering the simple things in life.
And we cover a turning point for me in my ‘show up and own up’ journey - the life of a financial addict.
Our discussion is honest and intimate and shared in the hope it will empower others, to know it’s ok to embrace their stories, feel their feelings, without guilt or shame and to simply be themselves, in whatever form that takes.
Your truth is powerful, your voice is unique and our imperfect selves, are what makes us all so beautiful.
So, shake your world until only the truth remains, close your ears to judgement and do what you can, each and everyday, to regain yourself and live your life in your way.
103 The Eye is the award-winning community radio station. I was delighted to be interviewed by Ling Pang. We discussed PND, the menopause, depression, truth, being vulnerable, our need for genuine connection and this mad thing called life. Enjoy x

My passion, the thing that gets me out of bed everyday, is to simply empower everyone, to 'show up and own up' as themselves.
Not to be scared of what others think.
Not to allow judgement or social norms, to restrict their passion and creativity.
Not to loose parts of their soul along the way and only realise they have done so, when it is too late to get it back.
Don't just challenge the status quo - smash it into pieces, with the raw beauty, truth and inspiration, of what it truly means to be a human being living life fully, not caged by optical illusions and meaningless bullsh•t.
Get out there, take your space, use your voice, be yourself and shake your world, until only the truth remains.
I’m a sharer - I share all of my experiences, good and bad. I share because not sharing hurts me and it hurts others. It feeds a false reality, where people are hoodwinked into living up to a set of standards, that simply do not exist. I share because I don’t want anyone else to feel alone, isolated and broken.
I guess in a nutshell, nikdavis.com is about helping organisations and people, to redefine what makes us all a true success, to live more authentic, purposeful and truthful lives, to be whole and to be able to lead from the heart with vulnerability, empathy and trust.
Helping organisations achieve the 'seemingly impossible', think the unthinkable and deliver genuine transformation, driven by engaged and motivated people. Facilitating open and honest 'rumbles', in a psychologically safe culture, to enable people to bring their whole selves to work.
Supporting individuals to become whole, to discover what 'makes their hearts sing' and operationalise that, via a combination of coaching and consulting.
Showing up and owning up, sharing my stories with raw, unfiltered honestly, via public speaking, blogging and vlogging, to help others embrace theirs too.
