and I want to tell you my tale about how I became so passionate
about wellbeing because it is a story very close to my heart...
Wellbeing Writer: Nicole’s Journey
Wellbeing Writer began, like every good story does, in a little wooden chalet in the middle of the English countryside!
I'm Nicole Barton, founder of Wellbeing Writer, and I began my journey into the natural health field when I found myself feeling exhausted, stressed, anxious and totally disconnected. I struggled through the haze, as we often do, working hours-on-end in my demanding job as a Brand Manager in the beauty industry until - one day - I became so burnt out that I developed Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Despite being unable to physically move, it was actually then that I began to wake up. I found myself on an exciting journey (though it didn't seem it!) that the universe had laid out for me; this time, pursuing my passion for holistic health, and taking time out to reconnect with my own wellbeing needs – mind, body and soul. Travelling the globe to train in worldly wellbeing techniques - venturing from Stonehenge to Bali - I studied a wide variety of complementary therapies - including yoga, meditation and homeopathy - at award-winning academies. Remembering my love of all things ‘natural’ I set up my own specialist wellbeing clinic - Chalet Holistics - in idyllic, rural Warwickshire - before following my heart, working from clinic in London.
I still felt something was 'missing, though! The biggest shift happened during my continued 'search for myself', when I awakened to an understanding about the truthful nature of life and how it really works. Having been journeying and searching for something deeper to fulfil myself, I eventually came across a profound understanding about the nature of being a human, experiencing life via thought in the moment, which changed everything. Nowadays, I am most passionate about leading this innovation in the field of inspirational thought, sharing my insights via mentoring others; facilitating reconnection through profound, inspirational and innovative insights about the nature of the thought-feeling connection.
I'm grateful to now be a well-featured Wellbeing Ambassador, providing support in various different ways to help bring people back to balance, not only via mentoring and my global online clinics, but also through my blogging and wellbeing industry journalism and press work. I specialise as a Wellbeing Mentor, helping people to make sense of life and support themselves back to balance, via natural health techniques. Nowadays, you can find me either writing articles, running retreats, or hopping between online mentoring calls, as well as specialist in-person clinics in London and the West Midlands!
I also coach and consult for nationwide wellbeing businesses - from small individual clients to large corporates – such as Base Formula, a leading supplier of essential oils, for whom I am a Consultant Aromatherapist - helping with their marketing and communications about balanced health. Being regularly featured in magazines, I write for wellbeing industry press on any natural health topic - from my mentoring insights into the field of inspirational thought, to homeopathic medicine, yoga, meditation, sound therapy, and various other holistic therapies including aromatherapy and essential oils, reiki and reflexology. I cover a wide range of topics, from mental, emotional and physical health, right through to specialist areas such as fertility support, pregnancy wellbeing, natural skincare and making homemade products.
I am so grateful for the space I have arrived in, having realised a return to my personal truth, right in this present moment.
My story, I hope, is one of overcoming illness by following my heart to my truth. Life will always have its ups and downs, via thought in the moment, but it’s how you allow yourself to ride the waves with a conscious understanding of life that counts. I want to be able to help that become easier through the wellbeing mentoring teachings and tips in my blog. I hope you enjoy reading!
