The doctors wouldn't operate on my hernia unless I lost 2 stone. I went to Nicholas and we worked on the root causes of why I couldn't lose the weight. He used a combination of coaching techniques and hypnosis and it felt very supportive and focused on my individual situation. I can't pinpoint exactly what it was that changed, I just know that within 3 months I lost the 2 stone and had a successful operation! Better still the weight isn't going back on. I feel fantastic!
