About Nicolle Mitchell
Nicolle has practiced massage in Cornwall since 1998 where all are welcome to experience the benefits of her holistic and integrated approach to massage and wellbeing. She and her partner often get lost in their young food forest garden in Cornwall experimenting with growing perennial edibles, herbs for “meadowcine”, increasing biodiversity, and inviting newts, bats & charms of finches to dinner. They embrace the permaculture principles “Earth care, People Care, Fair Share”.
Nicolle has worked therapeutically with children, young people & people with additional needs for over 30 years, specialising in the field of dementia and taking a special interest in trauma. This led to her developing an approved/accredited course “Massaging Persons Living with Dementia” the first course of its kind in the UK.
Group training is delivered across the UK, with 1 to 1 training provided in Cornwall. Nicolle works with organisations to facilitate bespoke packages to fit in with their training needs. She delivers talks, seminars, workshops and presentations on a variety of health issues for organisations, particularly in her specialist field of dementia and regularly advises colleagues in her areas of expertise.
Nicolle visits clients who live with dementia to administer integrated massage treatments which involve aromatherapy and other creative therapeutic approaches.
She also works part-time for the NHS in the adult speech and language department as a therapy assistant providing support to enable clinical rehabilitation to people who have issues with speaking and swallowing.
Nicolle loves that all her roles overlap and enrich each other enabling her to deliver with passion and keep her approach fresh, exciting and accessible to everyone.
