Hello I am Nicola, a certified Health Coach from the Institute of Integrated Nutrition, focusing on managing stress and other areas that can often be effected by the stress in our lives, such as time management, sleep, self-care, self love and eating habits.
So what led me to follow this path in becoming a health coach? I decided to focus more on my own health and well-being when my own health started to deteriorate. I suffered from extreme fatigue, headaches, brain fog for 5+ years and felt that whatever it was that I had, was also having a huge impact on all other aspects of my life, both in and out of work. This sparked an interest on not only finding out what was wrong with my own health and the solution/s to getting well again, I also wanted to support others and prevent them going down a similar path.
My work focuses primarily on managing stress, time management (or managing time), self-care, self-love and eating habits. So why do I focus on these areas, mainly because these are the areas that have played a big part in my own ill health and realising I needed to make some serious changes if I wanted to get back to being physically fit and well again.
Having spent a lot of time, energy and money to support my own journey back to wellness, I knew if I had had the tools or support before I had got ill myself, my life wouldn’t have been so bad for so long.
I have realised that if you put in the preventative work, you can have a life that you love and enjoy, feel more raring to go when you wake up in the morning and a day you would like to be part of.
My background is working in social care, both vulnerable adults and families and have gained many years experience understanding the stresses that people or families face in their day to day living. How, if not managed can become a continuing cycle of poor health and well-being and a viscous cycle that becomes harder and harder to break.
Working in such a challenging role at times, if not carefully managed could lead to burnout, I’m sure many of you can relate to this.
Whilst working in social care, I have also become interested in something that is becoming more and more prominent in the UK, childhood obesity and being a part in supporting the community to make changes.
Good health and well-being doesn’t have to be difficult, it’s how we use our knowledge to support those who may not have the necessary ways to make their life more kinder to them.
I am currently working in social care so my availability is limited for the next few months, however, please do get touch with for further information.
