‘It doesn’t take long to identify when someone has mastered their topic compared to someone who has just learnt their topic. When I first heard Nicole James’s message I was quickly impressed by the freshness, depth of knowledge and different angles of the message. As someone who can struggle for work life harmony myself at times, Nicole spoke seamlessly to both my work and life performance. Although I had a lengthy career previously in the fitness industry myself, and indeed presented on similar topics, Nicole’s message was original, educational and inspiring. I subsequently invited Nicole to speak to a group of 30 of my clients who are all in business and the message was again very well received. Nicole is an engaging speaker with expert knowledge, which makes for a stimulating presentation on a well-worn topic with plenty of upside for those people and businesses who follow her advice.’

'We first met Nicole in Jan 2018 when we invited her to present a Gut Health Seminar to staff. This was the only session we’ve ever had where the questions and discussion were still happening almost an hour later! We decided to have her back to teach us more but this time we booked 8 sessions so that we could really delve deeper. The sessions were customised to suit our needs and the feedback from staff was consistently good. Staff told me that they had never learnt so much at any of our previous health initiatives and they loved how the information was pitched. Having attended many nutrition related sessions previously, staff really felt like these sessions gave them new information and helped cut through some of the myths and confusion around healthy eating. They loved the mind/body connection too. Nicole’s sessions were the only course style of offering where the numbers of attendees at each session grew, due to word of mouth instead of declined’.

Initial Consult (1 hour) - $140

Nicole’s consults are tailored to address each person’s specific situation. Using Food as medicine, along with addressing things such as stress and environmental toxins, Nicole passionately believes that this holistic approach will provide us all with the foundation for a healthier and happier life.
Nicole has studied the nutritional biochemistry of the way foods interact with our body. Everything you put in your mouth, every thought and everything you do every day has an impact on your health. We consist of thousands of biochemical pathways that create our thoughts, helping us to feel good, controlling our moods, produce our hormones, produce and control pain and inflammation, allow us to detox and keep our immune system working. The list goes on and on. It is when these pathways go wrong that we start to feel unwell.
Nicole helps you to identify what could be going wrong, depending on your symptoms and helps you to correct it.
