Hi, I'm Nicki.
I'm an award-winning nutritionist, author, speaker and women’s health expert.
But I wasn't always this clued up about my hormones……Far from it!
I was the chubby kid at school and the grown up girl who ate pizzas, burgers and partied hard most nights. I lived my life jumping from one fad diet to the next.
So what on earth happened to turn my life around? I hit 40, and couldn’t do it any more. My body had gone through 2 pregnancies, and while my kids were amazing, it was hard work juggling family and a stressful career. I didn’t have the time or energy to look after myself. I couldn’t get into my old clothes and the extreme diets I did try weren’t working any more!
I was losing control of my body and the negative self talk was really affecting my confidence and my relationships. Something had to change!
My doctor couldn’t help. In fact he offered me anti-depressants! I knew that wasn’t the answer. So I asked my dad...
It just so happens that he’s a renowned natural health doctor, but like a typical daughter I had ignored his advice most of my life! But this time was different – I was ready to listen.
He helped me get my hormones properly tested.
The test results showed that I had multiple hormone imbalances!
With his help I learned simple natural solutions including diet, lifestyle and natural supplements.
I couldn’t believe how much better I felt. I immediately started to lose weight, my energy came back, my brain fog lifted and I was much more fun to be around.
I had no idea how powerful a role hormones play in how you look and feel.
I was so impressed with the results that I quit my job and went back to college. After thousands of hours researching, writing papers and listening to experts all over the world, I qualified as a nutritionist and started to help the many women who, like me, were missing the support they desperately needed.
And things got so busy, I had to get some help! Luckily for me, I found the most amazing fellow Nutritional Therapists to help me. Read about my amazing team below.
We are now helping hundreds of women all over the world to regain control of their hormones through our 1-1 coaching, personalised testing, group workshops, online programmes, webinars and talks (both private and corporate).

After failing to find any medical help for her symptoms of exhaustion, weight gain and hormone issues herself in her early 40’s, Nicki discovered that she could turn things around using diet, lifestyle and natural supplements.

After being diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and having lifesaving surgery, Clemmie continued to experience digestive problems, despite being given the all clear by her doctors. She discovered that she could transform her digestion and health through diet and lifestyle, which changed her life forever. That experience was so powerful that she quit her job in PR and trained as a nutritionist.
Clemmie now specialises in digestive health, helping people who suffer from a wide range of digestive symptoms and conditions to overcome their problems and change their lives forever too!
When Marjolein was in her mid-twenties she was heading towards burn out, experiencing extreme fatigue, a series of infections (kidneys and chest) and frequent bouts of depression. After being repeatedly told that there was nothing wrong and that all test results were ‘normal’, she was eventually diagnosed with endometriosis at the age of 30. She decided to take matters into her own hands.
Through learning about her own body through nutritional therapy, she was finally able to take control of her health. and her mission now is to support other women to understand their bodies, take control of their health and feel their best.
After growing up on a farm in New Zealand, Bex relocated to Europe in her 20’s for work, where she struggled with severe IBS and acne putting added pressure on her personal and professional life. Looking for natural ways to manage her pain, bloating and skin issues took her on a journey resulting in her becoming a Registered Nutritionist and Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner.
Bex is passionate about educating her clients about the power of diet and lifestyle and helps men and women to overcome even the most complex health issues using natural, science-backed solutions.
Zara was diagnosed with endometriosis in her late 30s, and was told it would be very difficult for her to get pregnant. Her life-long interest in health and nutrition was pushed to the next level as she researched ways to balance her hormones naturally and sought the help of a nutritionist, and eventually had a daughter.
Experiencing first-hand how powerful nutrition can be, she now specialises in working with women going through perimenopause and menopause, and is passionate about supporting women through this stage of life.
Our vision at Happy Hormones for Life is to educate, inspire, empower and support women of all ages to feel BETTER THAN EVER.
Because when women are at their best, it benefits everyone around them – the ripple effect is huge. That’s why we LOVE doing this work!
