About Nicole Yeates

Author • Rehabilitation Counsellor • Brain Health Coach • Survivor

A Life Changed Forever

At just 16, Nicole’s life changed forever. A severe Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) suffered after a horrific hit and run accident not only left Nicole for dead on the road, her chances of survival were not considered high.

Dying two more times in hospital, the doctors were convinced that Nicole’s chances of survival were only 30%.  The initial prediction was that if she did survive, it would be in a vegetative state, or at best, with only the ability to work in a sheltered workshop.

Imagine going from a normal healthy 16 year old girl with her life ahead of her, to this. It’s easy to understand how such negativity could take over and stop even the most positive person from moving forward.

Not Nicole! 

Nicole saw this negativity as her motivator to get back up and prove the doctors wrong. She did just that. She found her neuro grit to never quit!

Nicole studied Rehabilitation Counselling at Griffith University, and graduated in 2005. Since that time, she has worked in the occupational rehabilitation industry as a Rehabilitation Counsellor and accredited Mediator.  She is also a Certified Brain Health Coach, Master Time Line Therapist, Neuro Linguistic Programming Coach and Hynotherapist.

Today she’s become a #1 Best Selling Author and has also developed an app to help other people suffering from memory issues. For more information on these products and so much more, see below.
