The time I spent with Niki, and the work I did during that season changed everything. With her coaching and support, I re-built my life, tearing down my old foundation and consciously building a new one.
I once faced each day with fear of my out-of-control feelings, addictions, and mind numbing behavior. I now face each day with quiet peace. Knowing I belong. Knowing I am enough. Always loving and honoring myself first.
With those beliefs laying the new foundation of my life, nothing is the same as it was. I now breathe peace.
Niki is fantastic and I’ve recommended her to everyone I’ve met looking into any kind of therapy. She has made such an incredible impact in my life. She listened intently to everything I had to say and gave me the feedback and coaching I needed to help steer my life in a new direction. With her help, suggestions and insight I was able begin being present with my family and start connecting with my spouse again. If you're looking to invoke change in your life, I’d recommend meeting with Niki. She’s been a huge influence in my life and I can’t thank her enough for the care, thought and time she’s invested in me.
I first began working with Niki in 2013. I came to her at a time in my life when I felt completely out of control and like I was a terrible person due to my struggles. Niki helped me to see that even though I have struggles, I am not defined by them and helped me to see that I don't need to beat myself up about it. I have had many counselors over the years and have never felt that any of them understood me the way Niki did, nor helped me to have a better outlook on life and the struggles that come with it.
I met with Niki over a two year period and the work we did together benefitted me more than I could possibly express. I decided to go see her when anxiety, depression and addiction were feeling like more than I could deal with on my own and I received her information at the recommendation of a good friend. I had struggled with the same issues for many years and had seen multiple therapists, but not one influenced or understood my problems better than she did. She helped me to understand the underlying issues behind the surface problems I was facing and helped me dig deep to better understand myself. Niki provided me with the tools to confront my emotions and not allow them to get the best of me, which was truly freeing. Additionally, I felt her genuine care and concern for my well being every single time we met. As a client, you can sense her desire to help you. She truly is a life changer!
Niki has been a great resource of knowledge, friendship and coaching. I have really enjoyed her program. It made me search for areas I needed to improve on and find wounds that still needed some healing. I will always cherish the friendships I've made.
The Ascent Women's Group has changed my life in SO many ways. I feel like the information and coaching given through this program is invaluable. People NEED to know this stuff! I have learned how to cultivate meaningful connections with others and I have found joy! It's definitely not easy work, but if you are willing, it will transform you into a better person all around. I tell everyone I know to take this course! It's worth it a million times over. I really cannot recommend it enough.
This group has been so healthy for me in so many ways. I have been taught that "I am okay," warts and all. Do you know how comforting it is to feel genuinely cared about after you dump every secret of your soul out for everyone to see? I have also connected emotionally with many people that I never would have met if it weren't for this group. I feel loved and validated. It has been the best year that I have had in a long time, truly a turning point in my life.
Niki is passionate about what she does and doesn't ever allow for easy answers. She digs until she finds the best you. I learned so much about balance and connection and am now able to identify triggers and calm myself down before small issues escalate into big problems. A beautiful life course that I would recommend for anyone!
I came to Niki Bennett with a desire to learn more about myself and hoping I would become a better person. What I experienced in working with her changed my life. I learned skills in communicating with others around me. I am now more proficient in expressing what I want and working through problems that arise in my life. These skills have made my relationship with my husband more fulfilling. Even though my husband did not attend sessions, we are both reaping the rewards of my personal work.
One thing I was lacking was a way to set clear boundaries and stick to them. Niki taught me how to feel confident, without guilt, in sharing myself only with people who I need in my life and who make me a better person. I choose who I let into my life.
She taught me that my life is MINE. I have the power to get what I want, everything that I want, out of my life. I have the ability to make things happen. I have learned how to set goals for myself and to reach them. Once I realized I can actually have everything I want in life, I was set free from the life I was living. My kids and husband also can have the life that THEY want. We are all happier.
Working with Niki has changed my life. The work we did together made me stronger, more peaceful and fulfilled.

I summarize my work with Niki as a journey I didn’t know was there. I began working with Niki for some business and professional coaching. I quickly recognized that I had some buried traumas, and while small, they still affected me in ways I didn’t understand. I participated in the group cohort and received individual coaching, and then wrapped it all up with a 3-day retreat. I learned so much about myself and I wonder how much different my life could be had I started this work earlier. It’s difficult to face things that were long forgotten, but so worth it to come out stronger and more resilient in the end. Niki is an amazing coach, holding a place for you when you need it and challenging you to dive deeper.
I’ve been on a journey, you could say . . . a journey of recovering from trauma that happened in my childhood. I have never opened up about this trauma and it has caused a lot of pain and struggle through the years.
Last year was a bad year for me and I found myself lost and feeling broken. I couldn’t see my future or see my meaning for life. I didn’t know exactly who or where to turn to. A good friend of mine recommended Niki, who has coached me on self love and compassion. I was then invited to join a cohort group that focused on trauma, self love and compassion. I was scared out of my mind. I have struggled with trust. Who can I trust with my deepest, darkest secrets? Who can I be completely vulnerable with and feel safe?
I jumped into a place I was most uncomfortable and had so much fear. What are they going to think of me? Am I good enough, smart enough? Will they judge me? Will they accept me? I accepted the invitation and joined the cohort. Each one of us has completely different trauma or struggles in our lives. But we have something in common; trials and how we get through them. I have met 5 extraordinary people, 5 new best friends who have accepted me and love me for who I am. They encourage me to be the person I want to be. I recently had the most amazing opportunity to travel along with a couple of my dear friends to Paris. Yep! Paris, France! My heart is feeling completely full. This trip has been life changing and I will be forever grateful. My life is very blessed by some very amazing people.
