Testimonials

Louise – Southampton

“After being diagnosed with a serious health issue, I needed to shake up many aspects of my life. It was my wake-up call. I had to address my whole life balance. In Nicky I found a holistic therapist, Nicky welcomed everything I wanted to share, nothing was off the table, there was no judgement. Nicky was very encouraging, we addressed my nutrition and lifestyle, along with looking into who I was, and where I wanted to be.

Nicky taught me techniques to slow down, relax and breathe. I really benefitted from Nicky’s counselling and coaching. My head became clearer, and focused. I found “me” again, my life feels better balanced. I’m healthier, both physically and mentally. I’m in control, with direction. I have Nicky to thank for so many positive changes in my life”.

Christine – Hertfordshire

“There is always a stigma when seeking help and support and I must admit I was initially sceptical. I can’t begin to explain how much taking that step and seeking help from Nicky has changed my outlook. Through every step and consultation, I felt lighter and began to get back to being myself.

Nicky has given me the tools I need to cope and helped me confront things I never realised were an issue before. We all go through difficult times in life and accepting help is the most difficult. Taking that step of faith and accepting support and guidance from Nicky has changed my life for the better – I can’t thank her enough.”

Adam – London

“Working with Nicky is a joy. She coaches for impact in a kind, compassionate and supportive way. She’ll take you to the places you need to go to get the growth and outcome you want.

The questions, tools and exercises she uses are excellent. I’ve never had a coach who was as able to push, pull and flex with my needs and bear the overall change in mind at the same time.

Nicky’s helped me scratch a long-held mental itch and empowered me to deal with things that were driving limiting behaviours in my life. Thanks to her I’m in a better place personally and professionally helping me be a better co-worker, husband and father.”

Nita – London

“I have immensely enjoyed our sessions together.  You have been something very different from whom I thought I needed you to be and possibly more effective than any counsellor I’ve had in the past.  I know your presence in my life will be a force for good — as it is in other people’s lives.  The impact of your outlook and clarity… just that space to perhaps be more vulnerable than I am even with myself – is immensely powerful.”

Kelly – London

“I have really found the whole process massively beneficial and cannot recommend you enough.   It is crazy how I actually thought I was a healthy eater just because I bought healthy food and fed it to my kids but until you actually made me stop and really analyse my habits I just didn’t realise how ignorant I was being of my own body!  It has been so cathartic to actually stop and think about things and learn to let go of guilt and give myself a break – something us mums just don’t do enough.”

Laura – London

“Working with Nicky was a total pleasure.  I was feeling under pressure, overwhelmed and extremely inadequate.  Not only did Nicky help me to prioritise and refocus but she enabled me to acknowledge my strengths which game me a sense of achievement and self worth.  As a result I now feel a lot happier, more relaxed and more confident.  Thank you Nicky.”

Nicky for Life - Happy customer Lauren Andrews

Lauren – London

“Nicky has a strong yet calming and accepting presence throughout our sessions. I feel fully supported and genuinely cared for throughout our work and this, along with using powerful techniques at the right time, unlocked some deep rooted beliefs / narratives that I didn’t realise were there nor connected to my current experiences. Our sessions are emotional and at the end of each I feel relief and a calmness that was unfamiliar to me but very welcomed.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nicky; she brings with her a brilliant mix of experience, knowledge and insight; and is able to take it that step further by bringing herself to those sessions; showing genuine care and an unquestionable desire to get you to a happier, healthier place.”

Kathryn – London

“My time with Nicky was transformative.

Food used to be fuel to me. I was never interested, I’d always grab the fastest food available when I was hungry and I’d overeat without thinking. After my second baby (when I was finally getting something approaching a night’s sleep) I decided I should do something about the way I felt when I looked in the mirror.

Spending time with Nicky was the best money I’ve ever spent on myself. She guided me in unpicking the reasons for my choices and gave me tools to change my thinking and my health habits. I hit my target of losing a stone in weight, and I lost 8-10 cm from my waist and hips.

But more importantly, I gained control of my health choices. I love the way that feels. I’ve discovered an interest and appetite for choosing healthy foods.  I rarely have the foods I used to survive on and that’s a choice, not a restriction. I’ve astonished myself and it’s a totally different experience when I look in the mirror now.”

Carol – Watford

“When looking back over the three months I spent working with Nicky I realise how totally differently I feel about myself, both physically, mentally and emotionally. I was a bit of a mess when we first started, I had inflammation and sore, swollen joints in my fingers which I’d been struggling with for a couple of years. I was tired, had no energy, no vitality, no zest for life. My relationship with food was a love/hate one. Love because I love to eat, love to cook and love to share with friends my love of food. Hate because I had such an unhealthy relationship with food (and alcohol). I just didn’t know how to break the cycle, which affected how I felt about myself – my confidence was rock bottom and I didn’t believe I could change things for the positive.

Through working with Nicky I learned that I was someone who reached for food and alcohol when things got tough. I just didn’t know how I was going to change this. We started our weekly sessions by facing things head-on. Nicky encouraged me to go deeper into the things which had lead me to be where I was; she was so insightful, gently pushing me to go further into some areas which were uncomfortable to go. Our discussions became very fulfilling as I slowly began to see the light. I learned not only about how to make healthy choices, but I learned some very useful tools along the way to help me in all other aspects of my life – work, relationships etc.

As we moved forward I began to slowly believe in myself again, to trust that my body knows what is good for me. This was a revelation for me! After three months I feel excited about everything – shopping for food, cooking real food, eating consciously, being mindful about everything around me. I feel guilt-free when I allow myself treats, and no longer see food as good or bad foods – all real food is good, and it’s no longer tied in with my emotions. I no longer have swollen and inflamed finger joints, I feel energised and vibrant in a way I haven’t felt for years. And as a very nice aside, I around 16 lbs lighter!

Nick’s incredible knowledge about food and nutrition, coupled with her unique insights when she is working with me on a very deep level has helped change me for life. I never want to return to how I felt three months ago. Her warmth, her gentle probing into difficult areas, and her encouragement and continued belief in me made for a very special experience. I can’t recommend Nicky highly enough to anyone struggling with any aspect of their health. If you open yourself up to it, you too can come out at the other end eating healthily and feeling happier and stronger.”
