About me: Julie Nicholls, Therapist, helping Swindon people for over 25 years.
Although this page is about me, sessions are all about helping you!
Conventionally and Complementary Therapy trained, I provide care that encompasses physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs.
Since 1993 I have helped people, just like you, ease their pain, relax and feel well again from a professional and quiet environment in Swindon, Wiltshire.
I am available for individual sessions, talk-demonstrations, presentations, classes and workshops.

“Julie is unique in what she does. You have to try it to find out – but be prepared to get amazing results. I did! Thanks Julie.” Simon West, Events Director at Venues of Distinction 2008
What can I do for you?
This will depend on what you want. I am here to help you feel better so you can make your goals, dreams and aspirations come true, faster and more easily than you imagine!
Here is the story of how it came about
In 4 main ways:
- Getting or keeping you healthy or well enough to be able to do what you want/need to do.
- Removing fears, blocks and limiting beliefs and giving you the confidence you need to go forward.
- Helping you gain clarity as to how you might go forward.
- Giving you tools and tricks so you can keep going on your own when you feel ready to go it alone.
I generally allow 90 min to 2 hours per session. This gives me time to take a full case history, and fully understand what you need /want from the session(s) as well as have time to give a full treatment. This will involve helping you understand how you might be able to help yourself.
The most important part of what I do is empowering you to help yourself. This is what differentiates me, from the many therapists who are happy for clients to keep coming back, with the same problem, over and over again.
I want clients regain their sense of wellbeing and know how to reproduce all the benefits of the treatment, whenever they need and wherever they are. This means clients often don’t need to see me as frequently as they would other therapists, as they soon become better able to help themselves. Therefore, the treatment – which to some, may seem more expensive initially – is very cost effective and if you choose a programme, it has a money back guarantee too.
What clients say:-
- “It worked so fast!”
- “It’s like deep meditation.”
- “I did my exercises and it worked!”
- “Everything Julie says makes sense!”
- “Julie’s a miracle worker with magic hands.”
- “I beat last year’s time and it was easier too!”
- “I feel more in touch with ‘me’ after a session.”
- “It’s like yoga but nicer because I had to do nothing.”
- “I seem to move more fluidly, feeling lighter, wonderful.”
- “It’s amazing how Julie always seems to find the problem and the “Ah” spots even when you can’t find them yourself.”
“Since seeing Julie, I feel I have achieved a great deal and I am beginning to realise what has been happening to me over many years. I have been inspired to explore new things and have come to terms with my mother’s issues. My breathing is better and walking is easier, through improvements in my feet and fitness levels.
Being more content today than ever before, I can now get on with my life and have more fun.”
“I cannot thank you enough for this.” Bill Togni Director of Cardpos Europe Ltd. Dec 04

After qualifying as a nurse I was disheartened as felt a holistic approach to care could do more to improve patients’ health and well-being, so I re-trained and this is my journey so far.
