Relationship with your Body/Diet & Exercise/Intimacy
Self-Expression/Life Goals/Healthy Aging/Accountability
I know from personal experience that the way we relate to our bodies directly impacts the quality of our lives. Things like body shame, self-consciousness, struggling with weight, over-eating, not getting enough exercise, and those not-so-nice “inner critic” thoughts take a toll on us over time. Our health is affected, along with the quality of our relationships, and the success we’re able to achieve in our careers. These self-sabotaging behaviors hinder our vitality, our self-expression, and they dull our joy.
I believe that we’re here in this time and place to BE OUR FULL EXPRESSION. Each and every one of us has something very special inside- like a gift we get to give in this life. Our very presence is a gift. Yet, few of us allow ourselves to really be seen. Too often, our Self-expression remains suppressed and “hidden”- and the most common way we hide ourselves is through blaming our bodies.
I created Love The Way You Look to help people effectively deal with their inner critic and self-judgments to become more free and confident in themselves and more loving and at peace with their bodies.
Through classes, group coaching, and one-on-one coaching, I address the following areas: releasing body shame, ending struggle around weight loss, creating healthy weight, dealing with changes as our bodies age, coping with health issues, releasing self-judgment and negative self-talk, and developing exceptional self-care.
I’m glad you found your way to this work. You deserve to feel good in your body, to walk with confidence, to be your full expression in your relationships and career, and to have the freedom to be yourself!
Do you want to feel good about your body?
How about more confident and free?
Is it time to take that next step?
"I worked with Niki Svara for about 7 months doing one-on-one phone sessions, and my experience with this level of interaction has been profound. I was able to have victories that were personal to me, with Niki right there cheering me along, and I feel a new safety around my weight.
The most important thing I learned from Niki, who incidentally is a kind, funny and grounded individual, is that “weight issues” aren’t really the issues. What I truly got from my work with Niki is that lack of self-love or self-acceptance is the real issue that these “weight issues” are manifestations of. And, just like in her Piece Talks e-mails, she brought those same gentle and kind messages to our sessions, which helped me to begin to embrace the things that I judged as “less than” in myself. Before Niki’s coaching, I didn’t even see the ways I judged myself. I didn’t even feel all the pain I was carrying around in relation to my body image.
Also, areas of my life that I believed were independent of my “weight issues” began to change. For example, old interests I had buried began to resurface much to my delight, and I started to naturally make changes in self-care around non weight related things, like getting enough sleep.
I’m sure I will continue to revisit these lessons I’ve learned throughout my lifetime. Thanks to Niki- who has heard my most painful body image stories, who has walked with me through amazing discoveries- I am now coming from a place of reality, of groundedness and true self love.
My work with Niki has been life-changing and deeply rewarding. She’s the best!"

Niki Svara - Personal Development Coach
Founder, Love The Way You Look
With a master’s degree in spiritual psychology, and over 10 years of experience working with clients, Niki Svara has the love, the listening, and the tools that enable people to create deep and powerful growth, greater self-exploration, and personal healing in their lives.
"I have been working with Niki for several months and am amazed at the positive impact it has made in my life. I have dealt with body image challenges most of my life, even following a weight loss of over 100 pounds. It seemed that no matter how much I tried on my own, I could never accept my body.
Once I started working with Niki, I discovered that my body image challenges were deeper than just the physical aspects of my body. Niki worked with me to uncover other issues that needed to be addressed so I could realize that beauty radiates from within. She listened, she asked (sometimes tough) questions, she offered suggestions, and she never judged. Just a few short months later, I am much more accepting of my body, have more confidence, am more at peace and just happy.
Niki’s coaching has made a huge difference in all aspects of my life. I would recommend Niki as a life coach to anyone. She is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate."
