Navigating Life's Challenges With Ease

Are you a woman who tirelessly helps others, but feels constantly drained, overwhelmed, and struggling to find the energy to keep going? You are not alone. 


Is This You?

As someone who has walked a similar path and overcome these struggles myself I specialize in supporting women like you, the givers, and helpers who face chronic stress, burnout, and emotional exhaustion. 

Do you pour your heart and soul into supporting others but don't have much time or energy for yourself? Maybe you even fall into one of these helping roles, such as healthcare or allied health professionals, support workers, carers, or healer?

Or perhaps you identify with any of these characteristics such as a people pleaser, a human giver, an empath, or a highly sensitive person (HSP)?

Maybe they don't but you feel like you're constantly on autopilot, going through the motions but unable to truly connect with yourself or your surroundings?

Lately have you found it difficult to make decisions. feeling numb, disconnected or a sense of being "stuck", or maybe you have noticed physical symptoms like muscle tension or fatigue? Does this sound like you?

Sometimes, the constant giving can lead to a more intense disconnection called depersonalization. This involves feeling like you're observing yourself from outside your body, a sense of unreality about yourself or your surroundings, and a detachment from your thoughts and emotions. 

These experiences can be incredibly isolating, but they're not uncommon for women who prioritize helping others and would rarely receive, ask or do anything for themselves.

  • Hi,I’mNichola Mc Donald!

    I’m a highly experienced Integrative Counsellor and Holistic Coach, dedicated to supporting women in helping professionals or roles who are struggling with an internal battle of emotions, intrusive thoughts, and mysterious health conditions, to find balance amidst life's challenges.

    Are you finding yourself overwhelmed by your inner critic more than usual? Perhaps you're experiencing difficulty sleeping, constantly feeling drained, and needing to drag yourself out of bed each day. Maybe you've noticed yourself tearing up more easily, becoming frustrated at things that previously didn't bother you, or sensing an internal battle of emotions leaving your body buzzing with tension.

    The reason I know so much about the impacts of being a helper as I also have given so much of myself to the point where I was experiencing chronic fatigue, migraines, muscle pain and other strange physical symptoms, my emotions were either on overdrive or I was disconnected and numb, my thought patterns were distorted and my behaviors were destructive and no amount of talk therapy or self care helped.

    My life's purpose is to provide you with a secure and safe path towards healing. I'll guide you through reshaping your nervous system, freeing you from emotional suffering, and rewiring your brain for resilience. Together, we'll enhance your connection with yourself and the world, taking it one clear and achievable step at a time.

    Explore what's on offer and see how I can best support you on this journey. If you're ready to take the first step or simply wish to learn more, please reach out. WhatsApp me directly by clicking or scanning the QR code with your phone. A more balanced and fulfilling life awaits.

    "Nichola is not just a super skilled therapist; she's also one of the kindest people I've ever come across. She knows a lot about different ways to help people, and she helped me more than I thought anyone could. I didn't even know what I was looking for, but Nichola just seemed to get it. She was there for me, showing me care and teaching me stuff in every chat we had."

    "Starting sessions with Nichola was a game-changer for me. I was dealing with a ton of stress and worry, and to be honest, I wasn't sure therapy was my thing. But Nichola's way of connecting everything going on in my head with how my body felt made sense to me. She taught me practical stuff to help me cope better and stay strong. She helped me pay attention to what my body's telling me and how to respond so I can relax and find balance. Now, I can handle tough times with a lot more peace and confidence. Nichola's a mix of real friendliness, understanding, and serious know-how, and that's made my time with her life-changing. I'd tell anyone feeling overwhelmed or stressed-out to give her a try."
