Nikki is in Closer Magazine this week with Closer's new columnist, life coach Marisa Peer, helping Nikki understand and tackle the causes of her low self-esteem and anorexia. It is an in depth and informative interview in question and answer format. Nikki's session with Marisa really gets to the heart of the issues that affect Nikki today. Read about Nikki's session with the life coach in this week Closer Magazine.

At the end of the session this is what Marisa and Nikki had to say:-

Marisa: Nikki's main issues is her low self-esteem and not feeling like she's good enough. Our session was a good beginning and although her deep-rooted problem's wont be solved overnight - it will take time and effort - the good news is she can resolve her issues.

I'm confident she can make herself happy by teaching her mind to think positive thoughts and then she will start to feel different. She can do this by repeating "I'm good enough" and "I am lovable" in her head, up to five times a day. The more she say's it the more real it becomes.

She can also do some visualisation work and imagine herself as an eight year old again. She should picture giving herself a hug, and showing herself around her home now, looking at all the things she has. Then Nikki should tell her young self she lives in her world now and it's a much happier place. This will stop her living in the past and help her to move on. If Nikki changes her thinking her whole life will change for the better.

Nikki: I found this session with Marisa so helpful - she's such a wonderful lady who put me at ease immediately. I was amazed at how much she knew and understood my personal history, and she came up with lots of solutions to help me overcome the torments in my head that I struggle with on a daily basis. I went away from the appointment feeling positive and energised and feeling ready to take on anything. I'm so glad I did it.
