Nikki Berry - Director
A little about Nikki: I have many years’ experience in facilitating a variety of contact services, commissioned through many different local authorities’, and private clients, across the southwest and beyond.
I am able to establish professional working relationships with service users, and have excellent report writing skills.
I have worked alongside other agencies, such as Social Workers, cafcass officers and guardians, Prison’s, Hospital’s, Solicitors, Barristers, and the Police, to name a few!
I have spent many hours covering contacts in a variety of settings and have observed some really positive outcomes. I have also dealt with some very challenging situations and remain neutral and impartial throughout my work.
I started out working in the Child Care sector and I hold a B-Tec National Diploma in Childhood studies, Pediatric First Aid, Safeguarding, an enhanced DBS and more. I also have years of experience in working with young homeless people, in hostel settings, which brought many new encounters. In any space time I have, I love being with my family and walking the dogs. I’d love to say; I go to the gym regularly and love running – but I don’t!
Thank you for taking the time to read a little about me! Nikki 😊
