'Sacred Chord' voice evenings


About Voicework

Voicework is a wonderful opportunity to work with your voice in a supportive environment. It is a truly profound way of connecting to your authentic self through the power of sound. Nikki uses her deep knowledge and understanding of voice, along with her remarkable intuition when working with groups or individuals.  Voicework classes will usually involve chanting, singing, movement and some group work.

“My mission with Voicework is to provide an empowering and safe space that unconditionally encourages individuals to connect with their true inner voice so that they transcend all limiting beliefs that prevent their authentic and free self-expression.”


A typical Voicework session begins with a chant and you will be encouraged to choose an individual intention or goal that provides the foundation for your session. Working with the group dynamics and using a range of skills appropriate to the group, Nikki will lead us through sound explorations that may include partner and small group work as well as some movement. These classes are not necessarily about ‘singing’ but are a chance to connect with the core sound that runs through your life.

Important Note

Nikki's work with sound and resonance can be powerful. Although the effects are often therapeutic and profound, and the space is held and supportive, it is not psychotherapy. Where issues arise, individuals may choose to seek additional support.

Raise Your Voice for 60 seconds:
Lift the lid off Great British Inhibition!

60 seconds of your life to make a difference for the Children of Great Ormond Street Hospital

Sponsor Nikki Now!

“Would you be willing to get over what other people think of your voice and have a breakthrough in self expression to raise funds for the children of Great Ormond Street?”

Here’s what to do:

  • Go to a public place and take a witness with you. For example - underground ticket area, public high street where there are lots of people.
  • Take a deep breath and release your core sound from the belly using the whole of that breath, make some heads turn!
  • Your witness should be there to account for you taking this leap of faith and testify to your breakthrough moment.
  • Notice how free you feel and how you will probably be releasing the sound that’s trapped in the commuters and people around you.
  • If you can, enrol two of your friends to play the voice game (not necessarily on the same day as you)
  • Choose your location and date.
  • Signup sponsors to raise a minimum of £50.
  • Either ask people to donate directly to Nikki's justgiving page or send what you have collected there yourself.
  • Email your video clip in and we will add you to the gallery of people united in expressing themselves

Allowing yourself to express your authentic sound is an act of healing and freedom. We are often so busy creating masks and being concerned with what our neighbours think we have forgotten to be in touch with our true self. As we express our natural voice from the core we re-connect in that moment with who we truly are.
