Nicky Marshall: Author. Speaker. Mentor. Wellbeing Advocate.

"It's not often you meet people who are both spiritually intelligent and completely grounded. Nicky is one of them - I recommend you connect, follow & learn from a very enlightened individual."
Tom Evans

Nicky is an award winning, international speaker and best-selling author. She is also a mum, nan and wife and loves nothing more than family time.

At 40, Nicky suffered and recovered from a disabling stroke - inspiring a life's mission to make a bigger difference.

Nicky has an accountancy background and twenty years of helping people improve their health and wellbeing under her belt. Combining both, Nicky is a mentor, seasoned workplace facilitator and keynote speaker, inspiring people to discover their own brand of Bounce! Nicky’s knowledge, knack for stressbusting, hugs and infectious laugh make her an in demand and popular speaker.

With passion in buckets and a penchant for keeping it simple, Nicky has a unique talent in breaking down the barriers that hold people back from living a life they love.

Be careful if you stand too close - her enthusiasm rubs off!

On the 26th July, 2010 Nicky suffered a stroke as a result of a scuba diving accident. She lost the use of most of the left side of her body, her speech and memory were affected and she was unable to drive her manual car to the three month old business she had created. She had four growing up teenagers at home and Nicky wondered how she was going to carry on.

Nicky's background is holistic therapy and stress management and with A levels in Anatomy & Physiology she had all the tools she needed for recovery, so she set out on an epic bounce back journey with no idea if she would succeed.

Three years later Nicky was fit, 100% recovered, able to dive again and ready to sell the business that she thought she would have to wind up in 2010.

Nicky set up Discover Your Bounce, passionate to help as many people as she can to find their 'bounce' by boosting their energy, dropping their overwhelm and creating a clear plan to live their best life.

Today the Discover Your Bounce Group consists of three companies and is helping more people than ever. Find out more here.
