My name is Nicola Chan, I am a Body Confidence Coach. I help people using an array of tools from both Fitness and Mindset. When I was young, I had ZERO confidence; I was bullied at school, I thought I was ugly, I suffered with racial stigma and thought things would always be that way. I struggled to speak up for myself because I guess somewhere deep down I thought I deserved it. I thought I was not enough. At aged 14 I was subjected to an incredibily traumatic experience which led me to suffer a cycle of Panic Attacks and Depression. I found myself pregnant at aged 15 which was a blessing in disguise, as at the time I was suicidal. I then had a focus and decided to start thinking about my future and building a career and a business so I could support my child. Years went by and I became a fitness instructor. Being in front of people was hard, my feelings of not being good enough were always there, along with the shame and guilt. I had become destructive and tried to control everything with food and exercise, which led to an Eating Disorder, Body Dismorphic Disorder and Infertility.
