Nikki Cuthbertson | Intuitive Healer, Animal & Spirit Communicator
Nikki is a transformational intuitive healer. Her private sessions and workshops focus on providing spiritual and practical guidance. Her holistic approach includes animal and spirit communication, energy work, and the use of plants and gems to heal the body and clear the mind.

A 20-year career as a critical care nurse laid the foundation for Nikki’s deep understanding of the healing process. Experiences during this period led her to question the nature of healing, and the true meaning of “being healed.” She immersed herself in alternative and holistic modalities, including Yoga, meditation, Reiki and the use of flower essences. On this path, Nikki discovered her intuitive-abilities and talent for reading the subtle body of living beings.
