Hi, I am Nikki and I am your Naturopathic Health Coach and Nutritional Therapist.

Wow! This time 3.5 years ago I would never have imagined that I would be sitting here today writing my very first health and well-being blog for my Health Coaching business; The Root Cause. Definitely a ‘pinch me’ moment.

Before I became a Health Coach

Back in 2020, I was in the depths of corporate life, working long hours to provide clients with Global Business Services and Accounting, wondering what had led me down that path and questioning whether it was really the right career for me. I felt like I was just going through the motions and not feeling soul-satisfied in my work… which in itself can be damaging to health. Looking back, I kept myself in this position for so long (+10 years) for lots of different reasons (income, stability, I trained for so long to qualify, blah blah, blah) but if I am being entirely honest it was a number of limiting beliefs that rendered me “stuck” (a story for another time).

However, during the pandemic, some health concerns of my own led me down a path of self-discovery and healing (both physically and mentally) and this was the catalyst for change. I knew that my passion for helping others was not being demonstrated to its fullest potential in my current role and it was time to be brave and lean into something new. So, I followed my curiosity and made some inquiries into how I could develop my knowledge in the field of health.

Becoming a Health Coach and Naturopathic Nutritionist

It didn’t take me long to enrol onto the 3-year Naturopathic Nutrition course at the College for Naturopathic Nutrition (CNM) – best decision I have ever made. The following year I also enrolled on to the Health Coach course at CNM and knew I was where I was meant to be. Crazy retraining at nearly 40? Hmmmm…maybe (it’s been challenging juggling study, work, kids, dogs, house and all that..but totally doable). Happy to be learning again and reigniting my interest and zest for work? ABSOLUTELY!

I set up The Root Cause at the end of 2022 and started seeing clients in my capacity as a qualified health coach immediately. I cannot even begin to tell you how much joy health coaching brings me. There is nothing better than supporting others to feel amazing and raise their health vibes. It brings a smile to my face to see the change in energy in my clients, the bounce in their step and the kind words they share with me when they begin to see the difference that small, incremental habits and changes can make. Now THAT is job satisfaction.

I help my clients understand the root cause of their health concerns and guide them to encourage their body’s innate ability to heal from within. You cannot achieve vibrant health by sticking a plaster on the symptom… you must address the underlying issues to become truly well. From a naturopathic point of view, all systems in the body are connected and guiding a person to better health means treating them as a whole individual, not just for the symptoms they present. No two people are the same and therefore every plan created for my clients is specifically for their own unique set of factors. In addition, prevention is always better than cure and my aim is to inspire and support you to fuel your body with nutritious foods, movement, hydration, oxygen, sunlight, quality sleep and much more.

So, I guess you are wondering what kind of health concerns clients are presenting with in my Norwich-based health clinic?

These are some of the typical health concerns I see:

  • Digestive system issues; bloating, gas, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhoea, reflux, gut health
  • Low energy, food cravings, afternoon slumps
  • Insomnia or sleep dysregulation
  • Hormone imbalances, thyroid issues
  • Stress, burnout, chronic fatigue
  • Perimenopause/menopause
  • Acne, rosacea, eczema
  • Endometriosis, PCOS
  • Weight loss
  • infertility

Others may visit me and not even have a health concern but simply want to know how they can boost their health further, feel more energetic or increase their health-span for longevity.

So, what is happening now? Well, LOTS of exciting things:

  • I am on the home straight and final 6 months of my nutrition course which means getting through some hefty lectures, trips to college in London to sit the last of my practical clinical assessments and preparing for some upcoming assignments.
  • My Norwich-based health and nutrition clinic is now open, fully refurbished and is providing a beautiful, warm and inviting space to discuss your health and wellbeing.
  • I am recording some health podcast episodes – watch this space. They will be uploaded to the website under resources when available.
  • I am collaborating with others in the well-being space. Future blogs and podcasts will provide more information around this so you can check out the new offerings. A little taster… some packages for beautiful skin, ageing gracefully and ‘Glowing to the Chapel’ for radiant brides-to-be.
  • BUT essentially and most importantly, your local naturopathic clinic is open to clients, and I am offering a 15-minute complimentary call to discuss your health before signing up. This is an opportunity to find out more so grab a herbal tea and let’s chat.. see if health coaching with me could be just the tonic you need 😊

If you would like to chat more, you can book a discovery call via my website. Or if you want to take full ownership of your health today, book straight onto one of my packages via my health coaching page and let’s get you booked in for your initial health coaching consultation.

Or just want to keep up to date with the latest health tips? That’s cool… just drop your email here. You will receive a nice little gift from me to you too.

You can follow me you Instagram, Facebook and YouTube to keep up to date with support and advice.

I look forward to chatting with you.
