a self compassionate approach to overcoming insecurity

Do you stuggle to feel confident in your body?

This course will help you finally find feel confident in your body by helping you become  kind, supportive and understanding of yourself and your beautiful body. Imagine speaking to yourself in a way that made you feel good, calm and safe. I mean, who wants to live in an inner world of meanness and judgement?

Not me, not you, Let’s say, no more to that!!

But it is not your fault. We have been bombarded with thousands of messages everyday, all our lives, comparing, judging and shaming our bodies. The world seems to be obsessed with how bodies look, and over time it makes us feel like our worth is centred on our looks and that our looks just don’t measure up. This constant nasty input creates a tendency for us to become nasty to ourselves about our bodies. We are cruel with self-judgement, self-criticism and negativity towards ourselves and our own bodies.

In my time writing the book, helping clients process body shame and in interviewing my guests on my Beauty Load podcast, I have realised that the most important thing we need to overcome this internal hell is self-compassion.

Self compassion is the key to releasing ourselves from the nasty and negative self image....of  all that pressure and negativity that the Beauty Load creates and to helping us find kindness, confidence and acceptance for our bodies so that we can get on with living our best and most confident lives.

This is the online course to guide you to the kind and compassionate inner world that helps you feel confident in your body, in this world obsessed with beauty.

Nicole's style of teaching is beautiful - non-judgemental, explorative and gentle. Her From Insecurity to Body Confidence course asks some big questions related to both society and ourselves, but does so in a way that leaves you feeling empowered, calm and peaceful.

"Nicole beautifully challenges what we've been taught, and asks us to think about our bodies in a different way.

Each section, while simple, effectively digs into beliefs that have shaped us, and guides us to start challenging and processing those beliefs"
