Nicky’s interest in natural health took hold after 5 years of trying to conceive. Step-by-step she started to make significant changes to her health. She soon realised the detrimental effects caused over many years from life in the fast lane from both her career and a busy social life. In 2012 when her father was diagnosed a Grade 4 brain tumour, she put the wheels in motion to seriously study and learn wholeheartedly about the application of Nutritional Therapy. She wanted to learn to be able to help others stay well, and help prevent the progress of serious disease. She chose to study at The School of Health realising that their core principles were a complete match with hers - she never looked back! Nicola qualified in 2018 with a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy then went on to study in Kinesiology techniques, Phytobiophysics, Blood Types, Biometrics and DNA analysis.
She currently works on a part-time basis for an established supplement company, as well as running her own business, writing and producing online health programmes specialising in Blood Types for both clients and practitioners, and more recently takes great pride in being a tutor for the School of Health’s Nutrition students.
Nicola loves being able to share her knowledge, guide, coach and provide different angles to spark thought processes for students they may have not considered previously. This is synergistically rewarding as she equally receives food for thought from students' views, opinions and findings. The unique take from each graduate is inspiring and in turn she likes to motivate, breed confidence and a can-do attitude.
After qualifying she immediately started up in private practice, consulting with 1-1 clients applying her nutritional knowledge, lifestyle advice and food testing via kinesiology to facilitate and empower the person to take back control of their own health. She also used the application of Phytobiophysics where applicable and encompassed the clients blood type into recommendations. She wrote and created a successful group programme where all participants achieved positive results, before then turning her attention to producing online health courses for consumers. She brings practical business experience from her previous career to support students and practitioners in starting up in business and moving it forward.
Nicola is a proud mum to her beautiful daughter, Olivia (genetically a Type A same as her dad) but very much like her mum in determination and strength (Type O)! She adores her rescue dog Sonny, who is such a kind and gentle soul, always welcoming her with love and licks! Nicola loves keeping fit, being active outdoors, jogging in the hills, hitting the gym and learning something new every day! She continues to expand her own studies in the field of blood type, ancestral influence on health, nutrigenomics and epigenetic expression.
