What would your life be like if you no longer struggled with your weight?

Hi!  I’m Suyin Nichols, and I’m a Master Certified Weight Loss Coach. I teach open-minded women how to use Self-Love to end their weight struggle, so that they can relax around food, feel good in their bodies, and enjoy their lives more fully.


Why am I an expert at what I do?  Because I don’t just scratch the surface—diets do that and we know that never works long-term.  What I do is guide you on an inner journey to help you uncover the root cause of your struggle with food and weight.  This is powerful, life-changing work.  How do I know?  Because I created my own success story using the very same coaching tools I will be teaching you.

I suffered in Diet Mentality hell for twenty-five years, hating my body and developing a crippling love-hate relationship with food.  By 2005, I had reached my highest recorded weight after years of repeating the binge-diet-binge cycle.  The damage I was causing my body led me to experience my own personal rock bottom when I could no longer properly digest food.

I was miserable and sick, yet something inside of me knew that getting well was up to me.  For the first time in my life, my health was my main focus—not my weight.  I finally admitted that the diet game wasn’t working, so I opened up my mind to seek out a different approach.  This is when Weight Loss Coaching came into my life.  I had never heard of such a thing!  Little did I know, my whole life was about to change.

With the guidance of my coach, I was able to finally understand what was driving my actions to stay overweight.  The combination of the inner work I did, plus the addition of consistent healthy habits that were motivated from a loving place, helped me to lose the extra weight I was holding onto.  And while it does feel great to fit into smaller clothes, it feels even better be completely at ease around food in any situation.

Because coaching actually works, I became a Certified Weight Loss Coach in 2009 so that I could help others end the internal weight war like I did.  Over the years, my coaching method has evolved into include the element of self-love.  This is an idea I used to dismiss back in my crazy diet days, but now I see that it was the most important piece missing from the puzzle.  You cannot hate the pounds away.  To truly end your weight struggle, you must love yourself lighter.

This became the title of my book that I released in January 2015: Love Yourself Lighter: How to End Your Weight Struggle by Changing the Way You Think.  That same month, I earned my certification as a Master Weight Loss Coach through The Life Coach School.

Over the years, I have been a guest on various podcasts, been interviewed for health & wellness online seminars, and appear as a featured expert in The Inner Weigh ™, a beautiful documentary film about achieving weight loss from within.

Coaching is my passion!

I live and breathe this work as I practice the coaching tools daily in my own life.

I want to teach these tools to YOU.

I know what you’re going through because I’ve been there. I know what it’s like to get down to the bottom of a now-empty food container and hear your own voice berating you for your assumed weakness and lack of willpower. I want you to know that you are not weak and you don’t lack willpower. You have reasons that are driving your overeating and I want to help you find them.

Deep down, you know you deserve better than to spend your life continuing to spin in the weight struggle. There is that part of you that cares so much about yourself that you are here reading this right now. You sought me out because you want help. You want to get off this crazy diet rollercoaster and get on with living a life you love.

I can help you with that.

I want to help you.

No one should live this way!

And you don’t have to when there is a solution available to you in the form of coaching.

If you are ready to stop turning to diets that don’t work and are ready to look within for the answer to ending your weight struggle, then you are my ideal client. I love working with women who want to get to know themselves. They are curious about why they do what they do and are eager to learn & apply the coaching tools that will help them make the shifts they want to make. Even if you’re not quite on your own side yet, no worries! Helping you develop a solid relationship with yourself is part of the process.

When we work together, we will have weekly coaching sessions over the phone that last an hour. Coaching over the phone is so powerful because you’re likely to share more in this type of setting than you would face-to-face. The more you share with me, the more I can help you. The same goes for the email coaching between sessions. A lot of great progress can be made with the homework assignments you’ll be practicing during the week between calls, and through email coaching, I will be there for guidance and support.

Nothing gives me greater joy than to help a client wake up to the amazing person she already is underneath the distraction of her weight struggle. I know that you are capable of creating your own success story; you just need to learn how.

Suyin Nichols is one of the best coaches I have ever seen coach. She is insightful without being intrusive, truthful without being judgmental, and funny without losing focus. Her coaching sessions are clear, prepared, and focused, so each client gets the most from each hour they spend with her. She has been my partner in coaching for years now, and I don’t know what I would do without her input at seminars and in group workshops. I highly recommend her to anyone interested in losing weight and finding freedom. She has been there as a client and is willing to go there again and again as a coach. Few are as gifted as Suyin, and anyone who has the opportunity to hire her as a coach should do so without hesitation.
