Meet Nicola

I have over 20 years experience in the skincare and well-being industry.

I am a fully trained beauty therapist NVQ 2, NVQ 3 and a Diploma in Holistic Therapies.

I have also been a dedicated Dermalogica skin specialist for over 15 years and I have a strong passion for all things related to skin health, deep relaxation and luxury customer service.

My peaceful retreat is in an intimate countryside garden setting, nestled in the lovely village of Boxted.

My aim is to provide you with the best skincare advice and the most relaxing luxurious well-being treatment you will ever have.

My treatments are totally unique so you will not experience treatments like these anywhere else.

All designed using my expertise, to give you the little touches that will make all the difference to your overall relaxation from hot towels to meditation.


Here's what others say about The Greys Retreat

Emma Harris

"I have been going to Nicola for my facials for over 15 years and would highly recommend this amazing lady. Nicola is a very professional and reliable therapist and her treatments are luxurious and relaxing! The Greys Retreat only uses the best products and I would never trust anyone else with my skin xxx"

Theresa Whatling

"I have been seeing Nicola for many years and would highly recommend her treatments. I always come away feeling relaxed and spoilt. I would never consider going anywhere else or using any other products. Also if stuck for that special gift, Nicola has always been able to help me make the right purchase from the luxury Neom products she stocks which have always been gratefully received by friends and family."

Julia Stephen

"I have been a client of Nicola's for almost 10 years and would recommend her wholeheartedly. She is a total perfectionist and you always leave her knowing that whatever treatment you have had has been done to the utmost of her ability. A consummate professional."
