Nicola Aven

Kindness, connection and compassion are at the heart of my ministry. It has been my privilege to offer spiritual accompaniment, supervision and ceremony since the earliest days of my ministry but my work has developed to include facilitating groups, holding retreats and offering chaplaincy within a hospice setting. I have worked with dying and grieving since the year 2000 and have experienced my own profound grief and so it is a particular honour to offer my experience to those seeking understanding and solace at these times. I now run my own CIC set up specifically in service of those dealing with or preparing for death and grief.

I write a fortnightly blog – Journeying with love, loss and a senior rail card, to which you are welcome to subscribe.

Testimonials

  1. Nickie is a grounded, gentle and compassionate soul. Her lovely smile & warm presence, immediately puts you at ease. Over the past few years, I have been struggling to process a tsunami of grief, and Nickie has been an important part of my healing journey. She offers a safe confidential space for me to unfold; she listens intently, deeply witnessing me with her heart – so I feel truly seen and heard. She also delicately & deftly challenges me too, helping me explore my true essence.

  2. I found your spirit, and your gift for connecting with others and offering them comfort, inspiring.

  3. ..You are exceptionally skilled at what you do: holding the space, holding the circle, holding warmth, holding calmness, holding depth, holding a safe space, holding respect and trust
