Excess Weight Intake Form

Why waist size also matters (NHS UK)

Measuring your waist is a good way to check you’re not carrying too much fat around your stomach, which can raise your risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and stroke.  You can have a healthy BMI and still have excess tummy fat, meaning you’re still at risk of developing these conditions.

Regardless of your height or BMI, you should try to lose weight if your waist is:

  • 94cm (37ins) or more for men
  • 80cm (31.5ins) or more for women

You’re at very high risk and should contact a GP if your waist is:

  • 102cm (40ins) or more for men
  • 88cm (34ins) or more for women

Why do diets fail? When I work with clients on weight reduction, there is no diet and we do not focus on losing weight.  There are no forbidden foods!  We are all programmed in our subconscious mind from childhood to go and find whatever we lose.  Remember when you were a child losing your shoe or toy and your parents telling you to go look for it and find whatever it was.  Now when you ‘lose weight your subconscious mind kicks in and tells you to go and find the weight you have lost.

Using hypnosis and the power of your subconscious mind we start by changing your thinking to the fact that you are deliberately getting rid of something you have no need for … your excess weight.  As you deliberately get rid of it your subconscious mind realises this and gets on with something else.   Makes sense doesn’t it.

If you have an Epilepsy diagnosis, please contact me to discuss how the weight loss programme can be adapted to suit your health condition.
Drink Aware: It’s safest for both men and women to drink no more than 14 units a week, spread over three or more days with several drink-free days, and no bingeing.
The NHS Eatwell Guide says we should drink 6 to 8 cups or glasses of fluid a day. Water, lower-fat milk and sugar-free drinks, including tea and coffee, all count.
The National Sleep Foundation advise that healthy adults need between 7 and 9 hours of sleep per night. Babies, young children, and teens need even more sleep to enable their growth and development. People over 65 should also get 7 to 8 hours per night.
"Taking a 10 minute brisk walk each day can help build up towards the UK Chief Medical Officers’ (CMO) recommendation of at least 150 minutes per week of moderate to vigorous physical activity. This has been linked to health benefits including a lowered risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and some cancers."

Success Stories

"There’s very little difference.   I started with face to face, then with the pandemic we moved to online.  It was more convenient for sure.”

“It’s made it more accessible for me.  Especially in lock down when I was so desperate for some help with pain management after an operatio.  With my limited mobility it was a god send.”

“I was unable to get to my face-to- face appointment, so we rescheduled for zoom, which was brilliant.” 

“As a busy mum with only one day off in the week, it’s been great because I’ve been able to sit in on the session. Then get back on with my day with minimal interruption which is fab. ” 

“I suffer with social anxiety and have mobility issues, so online was a perfect match for me.”

online hypnotherapy session reviews

Hypnosis is very effective in helping people overcome dental phobias ... this testimonial certainly left my client with a smile on her face ...

"Hello Nicola, as promised letting you know how I got on at the dentist. I had a wisdom tooth taken out!! and so pleased that I "sailed" through it, no shakes, tears or any negative stuff.

I couldn't manage a teeth clean as well so will be going back in 2 weeks time, so really pleased as what I thought might be a filling instead I had a tooth out, and that's my first tooth I've had out. "   2015

Hypnotherapy helped me overcome my fear of the dentist

I Recently had the pleasure to work with a lovely elderly couple ...

I’m able to share their testimonial to illustrate the benefits and change that can be achieved ...

‘My husband recently had a stroke that affected his personality making him childlike and confused and very aggressive and possessive of my time. I’m afraid the Hospital just dumped us without any help or support. I am happy to say that after a few weeks we did find the right buttons to press. 

This is where Nicci came in. We were desperate for help and support. We had tried Counselling and acupuncture in the past so decided to try hypnotherapy to calm my husband down and to find out why he was so aggressive.

This incredible lady through calming tapes, gentle, soft talking changed things around. The aggression was fear of dying alone. Nicci gently calmed him and taught him to relax and make his own decisions by talking it through. I now have a more thoughtful , calmer man.

Our fate we don’t worry about, life is precious - thank you Nicci’ 2019

Hypnotherapy helps overcome fears

I received hypnotherapy from Nicola Murphy for my fear of flying. After the 1st session it became clear to her that my fears were far more deep rooted than I thought and my fear was not really of flying.

I can’t give enough praise for how she helped me, I knew that I had issues in my life but until we started our sessions I didn’t realise how much they were affecting my day to day life.

I had 6 sessions and I can honestly say that I feel so more relaxed, and my fear of flying has gone, I went away recently and I really enjoyed the flight, which made a huge difference to my holiday.

I feel my life is so much better for having the hypnotherapy and would definitely recommend Nicci, she really did help me.  Thank you so much 2017
