Hi I’m Nicky, welcome to Nicky for Life!  I’m a nutritional therapist and coach.  I teach busy Mums how to really look after themselves so they have more energy, feel less stressed and can regain control of their busy lives and their health.  I’m passionate about women looking after themselves first so they can give back to everything else, whether it’s family, work or friends.

About Me

Hello! I’m Nicky, a nutritional therapist, a Mum, a wife to be and a health and lifestyle blogger.

I’m passionate about about my wonderful family, I love healthy food and the world of health and wellbeing. And I’m always learning how best to look after myself as I go through life’s changes.

I don’t always get it right! I can get over-excited with projects, take on too much and get run down, but I’ve learnt a lot over the past 10 years about how to manage what life has to throw at us.

I’ve always been passionate about food, so I followed my heart and took a diploma in Nutritional Therapy with the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London. I did this whilst working full-time as an HR Manager … I told you I can take on too much!

During my 4 year course my life took a number of twists and turns which I could never have predicted. It wasn’t just one thing, but the hardest thing by far was losing my Mum to cancer.

My Philosophy....

There’s so much I’ve learnt over the past few years, these are the things that I really believe in and try to live by every day :

Everything in balance

Balance is really important to me; balance in what I eat, balance between my work and my family and balance between me time and time with friends and family. It’s hard to achieve balance in every aspect of life, all of the time, when this happens I go back to what’s important to me; me and my family.

I believe in blueberries & burgers and watercress & wine

I believe in enjoying food; I believe in being being healthy but I also believe in treating myself! So I eat my healthy smoothies, lots of nutritious vegetarian meals, and I juice regularly. But I also enjoy chocolate (the good quality stuff), I eat burgers and I definitely enjoy a glass (or two) of wine. It’s just about balance. READ MORE >>
