Tell us a little about who you are and what you do...

Hi, I'm Nicky Robertson, Co-Director and Intuitive wellness therapist at Back to Balance, Newcastle, a health and wellness centre focusing on providing therapies and classes to encourage wellbeing in the body, mind and spirit.  

What does success mean to you, right now?

Seeing Back to Balance reach its full potential....

  • Having the 4 therapy rooms at 80%+ occupancy.
  • 8-10 classes in the studio with full attendance.
  • Running a minimum of 6 workshops a year
  • Seeing our corporate wellness side of the business fully developed with a team of therapists offering services, classes and workshops on-site or in-clinic for companies.

What do you love about what you do?

I absolutely love being able to help people.  Seeing the transformation of the person as you work with them is a true blessing.

What do you find most challenging?

Balancing the business management, development and marketing of the business with the therapy time part. Making sure I have a work-life balance can be challenging too!

What's your biggest achievement(s) to date?

I have had many career successes over the last 20 years working with my clients so it is hard to focus on just one...

However, I would say for now, my biggest success is that I have restarted my business 4 times (due to traveling around the globe) and within a short period of restarting I've been able to re-establish my practice successfully each time.

What are your hopes and dreams for future success and happiness?

Getting the business to a point where it doesn’t need as much time and energy from me, as success and happiness for me mean balance. I'm building this business to be able to achieve a truly balanced lifestyle.

What's your best piece of advice for others wanting to feel more successful?

Don't be afraid to take the risk, make the changes or work for it. If it is important to you, then you will achieve it.
