Nicola Hill Dip NT, BANT, CNHC
I am a qualified nutritionist and I specialise in women's hormones.
Weclome, I am Nikki, and I run my practice in Plymouth, Devon. I am a nutritional therapist who specialises in balancing hormones for women so they can get back to being their best. Women often blame themselves for feeling overwhelmed and out of control when hormonal changes hit. Symptoms can include mood swings, fatigue, reduced sex drive, and weight gain and often lead to feelings of despair and isolation as women no longer feel likable or fun to be around. I am passionate about empowering women to get back to their former happy selves so they can reconnect with their friends, families and the life they once loved.
I provide bespoke programmes designed around your nutritional requirements and lifestyle factors to support you to help provide positive changes. Together we focus on health goals one step at a time, helping you to see and feel the results while allowing you to take responsibility for your own health. It is important to remember that you are unique and nutritional therapy is not a “one size fits all” approach.
My aim is to work with you to understand your underlying health imbalances and guide you on your wellness journey. Sometimes functional testing (urine, blood, stool or saliva) is required to help me delve a little deeper to assess what is required to help move your health forward. Any testing will always be discussed with you during your consultation.
A healthy balanced diet is paramount for good health and well-being. What we eat, or rather what we absorb, has a huge impact on our hormones, mood, energy levels, and our general wellbeing. I can help you to achieve the results you are looking for and often it can just be some simple changes to your diet that can make all the difference.
I've been where you are now, I know how it feels to suffer from bloating, painful cramps, poor digestion and desperately wanting to feel like myself again. I discovered what happens when you don't put your own health first. Consequently, a long term course of antibiotics left me suffering from own gut-related issues, which impacted my general wellbeing, hormones, and especially my mood.
My own journey back to wellness lead me to retrain as a Nutritional Therapist at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in Bristol after a period of three years of training for a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy. What I learned there has helped me transform my life forever, and now I can help you transform yours.
I am a firm believer that enjoying nourishing foods combined with natural products, that we use on our body and around our home, are the key players in regards to optimal health. Sadly, living in a world that is becoming increasingly polluted we need all the help we can to arm ourselves with the protection that is essential to our health and wellbeing. Aiming to reduce the toxic load we place on our bodies can have such positive results.
This is the time to connect with yourself, raising awareness that as we age each life stage can bring a new challenge. Knowing that you are supported with any health concerns, through easy and simple dietary and lifestyle changes, you can promote feelings of wellbeing. In turn, helping to minimise any worries or health risk concerns.
I would love to help you, please reach out and get in touch to see if I am the answer to your health goals.

Creating healthy changes to your diet and lifestyle can take a little time. So a "one-off consultation" with me isn't going to produce the lasting results you may be looking for. However, if you're looking for on-going support, I’d love to help you achieve your goals so please get in touch to discuss a bespoke plan.
Please visit my website to book your free 30 min call, this way we can have a personal conversation all about you and how I can help to support you and get you the results that you want. Alternatively, please get in touch with me via email so we can arrange a convenient time to talk, I would love to hear from you.
My fees are £75 per hour.
I work from my beautiful garden office, built by my partner especially for my practice, and which I have aptly called "The Garden Room". I wanted to provide a welcoming area without a desk, I wanted something informal, so that that I can hold my clinic sessions in a comfortable area with warm neutral shades.
