Hi, I’m Catherine Nyika, the Founder and Principal Practitioner at The Inner Shine Clinic, and I am not your average counsellor and coach. I specialise in empowering women and teen girls to overcome anxiety, 'imposter syndrome" and "not enoughness" so that they can learn to shine again. I will help you to see the light inside of you that you forgot was even there and teach you the tools so that you can keep that light turned on. You find yourself here because you are searching for answers. Inner peace and freedom seems out of reach and other things haven't helped. You now recognise it's time to start to heal from the inside out.
If current life circumstances have left you feeling detached from your own sense of self & you are sick of feeling this way, you’ve come to the right place! I integrate a mind-body approach to well-being as I believe your body doesn’t lie! With a vision of self-empowerment and motivating for change I have witnessed many amazing results for my clients.
If you are currently experiencing challenges or difficult life transitions such as relationship breakdowns, parenting stresses, chronic health issues, anxiety, depression, grief, stress, trauma or fears, call us for a free 15-minute chat. Let’s make a plan for how we can help. I will listen deeply & teach you tools to help you get through the tough times.

Tapping Circles for Confident Resilient Teens

EFT Tapping (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is a simple but powerful technique where you can change how you feel in a matter of minutes by tapping on acupressure points on the face and body in order to: 1) relax the nervous system 2) rewire the cognition of the brain for positive mindset and 3) restore the body's energy to relive imbalances and negative belief systems. The benefits of EFT in a circle setting are so powerful. These circles are most suited to teens who may be experiencing low self esteem, body issues, school stress, anxiety, depression and the stress of social media culture.
