About Me

Niki Saks is an inspirational and thought-provoking best-selling author and mental health thought leader who reveals the unfiltered reality of living with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) in her highly popular book: ‘Hiding in the Open: Living Sensitively’.

Her book captures her journey and determination to live a full and happy life - outlining the combination of struggle and triumph that brings BPD into focus for so many people living with mental health and personal challenges.

Niki is revered for her ability to break through the stigma surrounding mental health by sharing her profoundly personal and universal reality of living with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD).

Her approach is refreshingly informal, helping people to feel as though they are having a heart-to-heart conversation with a friend.  Her style engages people immersing them in the reality of life with BPD and the day to day struggles she faces as a result.

"I chose to communicate my story in my own casual style as if having a conversation with a friend. So here we are, my friend. This is my story of living sensitively with BPD," Saks said.
"’Hiding in the Open’ doesn't delve into the science behind specific diagnoses but offers an informative and entertaining perspective on living with a mental health condition. My aim is to share my journey in a way that shows people that it is possible to lead a fulfilling and happy life regardless of having a mental illness.
“My journey is filled with painful and difficult experiences which have contributed to, and amplified, my mental health challenges. I acknowledge in the book that my set of psychological disorders probably occurred as a result of growing up in a dysfunctional, traumatic, and unstable home."


Niki's symptoms manifested in a number of ways through her life including confidence and self-awareness issues, an eating disorder, difficult and dysfunctional relationships, relationship breakdowns, an autoimmune disease, depression, an overdose, and more. In addition, she also sustained serious life changing injuries from an accident just to add to the already hefty weight of challenges she faced.

Niki covers everything in her book showcasing the issues she faced and how when she reached a certain point in her life, she was able to reflect, draw strength from within and recognise that she had the power to change her path, embrace challenges and lead a more productive, loving and enjoyable life.

Her story is insightful, powerful and moving and she uses her book and public speaking to help people understand the ability to embrace and change is a mindset - and one which many can make, they just need the inspiration and guidance. Niki's book and wisdom provides important and life-changing inspiration and guidance.
