Nisha Zala, 34, who grew up in Collier Row, is in the running to pick up a Women Inspiring Women (WIW) Award after being nominated in the Women to Watch/Rising Star category.

The former self-harmer has turned her life around and is helping to “bring the light back to others” suffering from depression.

Nisha said: “It’s only two years ago since I turned my life around after years of severe depression, anxiety and periods of panic attacks.

“I just want to be able to share a message inspiring those in troubled times – to show that there’s hope and that things can change.”

The life coach says she suffered years of bullying at school and work, had a “tough” time at home and struggled to deal with self-confidence issues.

She said: “It takes courage, hard work, self-acceptance, self-realisation, forgiveness to yourself and for the other people who hurt you.

It’s about taking responsibility for the decisions you made and working on loving yourself.

“Today, thankfully with perseverance and hard work. I’m standing strong and as a result I’m here changing lives.”
