Online Eating Disorder Coach



My name is Nicola, and I am an eating disorder recovery coach. I am originally from the UK, lived in South Africa for 22 years and am now based in New Zealand.


Through my lived experience as a recovered person from an eating disorder and a mother of a recovered daughter, I have learned that everyone has a unique story to tell with regards to their eating disorder journey.


After reaching a place of being fully recovered myself and then going on to support my daughter through to full recovery too, the next step for me was to go forward to help others. This is why I chose to become an eating disorder recovery coach and studied through the Carolyn Costin Institute USA to ensure that I had the skills and training to be able to do so.


I am passionate about supporting each client along the path to full recovery and enjoy working alongside treatment teams to support goals they may have set for clients to help them accomplish what can often seem like the impossible. I work with clients internationally and locally. With coaching comes the opportunity to take it away from the formal settings of a room or office and have the chance to rather meet up in a park, at the grocery store, in your home or down by the river. I am as flexible with meeting times as I can be, understanding that life is busy. 


An eating disorder not only affects the person suffering from it but the whole family too. For this reason, I also focus on helping the family through this journey, advising on how to best support the client at home and in day-to-day life.


As well as coaching 1:1 I am available for texting support between sessions 24:7, this is vital to deal with the ‘in the moment’ issues which come up ‘after hours.’


An eating disorder does not only work during office hours – for this reason, nor do I.


My coaching services include the following:


  • 1:1 in person or virtual coaching sessions
  • Emails after each session with individualised goals and assignments for the week
  • Unlimited text support
  • Unlimited communication with treatment team
  • Meal support sessions – these can be in person at a restaurant or virtual
  • Clothes shopping support/Grocery shopping support
  • Live-in support

Would you like to know more or make an appointment, feel free to contact me.
