Why Work with me?


“At every step of my growth, Nicky has found a way to teach me how to push myself into a healthier state of mind and become a force to be reckoned with.” – Nat

I’ve always felt like I was missing the rulebook on how to be human. On the surface, I didn’t look any different from others, but deep down, I felt like an outsider. Life became increasingly challenging, and in my early teens, I turned to alcohol to mask my insecurities.

For nearly two decades, I wore various masks – alcohol, drugs, reckless behaviour, and fleeting relationships, accumulating debts. Tragically, I lost my father to suicide, and with the knowledge I have now about neurodiversity, I believe he was neurodivergent, just like me.

For a long time, I wasn’t truly living, just existing. But even in the depths of despair, I managed to find my footing. In 2019, everything changed when I discovered my truth – I am neurodivergent, both autistic and ADHD.

I spiralled downward, drowning in anxiety and fear. My lowest point had me hiding in a car footwell. But it didn’t break me.

I transformed my life in 13 months, climbing out of a 20k debt and achieving my first five-figure month.

But it wasn’t just financial success.

I moved closer to my partner, bridging the gap of a long-distance relationship. I found stability and security in a love that accepts me for who I am, even on my darkest days. I left behind reckless behaviours fueled by substances, and I am finally at peace with myself.

Today, I’m debt-free, living authentically, and guiding others on their own journey of self-realization.

My story isn’t just about surviving; it’s about thriving. It’s a testament to the transformation possible when we embrace our true identities and break free from the masks that once held us captive.

I’ve come a long way, and now, I have the honour of showing others how they too can rewrite their narratives and create lives filled with purpose, joy, and authenticity.

“Working with Nicky I felt like I could ask about the seemingly silly things that really get to me, like the remote control being out of place. Being able to talk to someone who understands how I process made the biggest difference.” – Louise

If you’re wondering why I created this program…

I’m an autistic adult myself, with a deep-rooted interest in personal development spanning 15 years. Along the way, I noticed a significant gap in the available support. Most resources seemed tailored for children and were often written by neurotypicals. They relied on outdated stereotypes that didn’t truly benefit us.

That’s why I’ve crafted this program – to focus on uncovering the strengths and uniqueness within each autistic person. We’re moving away from the negative narratives that have been all too common. This program is designed by an autistic adult, for autistic adults.

Past Clients

Investing in working with Nicky Collins was one of the best things I have done for myself. I got so much more from our sessions than I expected. We went on a journey together and I come out of it stronger, more confident and with more clarity about the path forward. Not only is Nicky brimming with knowledge and experience, but she also shares it with humility, humour, kindness, and confidence. Be prepared to be challenged, delighted, and inspired. I could not recommend Nicky more highly.


I worked with Nicky for 3 months, when we started working together I hadn’t been out of the house alone for 8 years after severe workplace bullying, Nicky worked with me to release the trauma that led me to being agoraphobic and I was able to leave the house with my young daughter, I gained my freedom back and am now going out and exploring the world on a regular basis


Working with Nicky during my self-development journey was transformative.  We created a toolbox of coping mechanisms and approaches that helped me both personally and in my business. This was essential, especially after facing challenges like burnout and perfectionism in my financial services business, which I started following a military career cut short by injury. Nicky’s expertise in understanding and leveraging our unique traits as strengths was invaluable.
