About me

For anyone who is feeling anxious and overwhelmed in these uncertain times and it’s affecting your sleep, work performance and your health. I offer a variety of packages to help you get back to feeling safely more in control, of the situation and your life.

If you are finding yourself struggling to manage your anxiety, obsessive compulsive behaviour (OCD), emotional eating issues and sleeping problems here’s how I work with those who want to overcome fears, panic attacks and emotional anxiety …

Step 1: I invite you to book a Complimentary Discovery Call with me so I can establish what your particular fear or phobia is or, if you are experiencing panic attacks, what is likely to be causing them.

On this call (which will last between 30-45mins) I will be able to give you some practical tips and advice to help you feel more in control.

Step 2: At the end of the call I will explain how I can help you in a bigger way and will suggest the number of sessions I believe will allow you to overcome your anxiety fear, your phobia or your panic attacks – should you wish to receive further support from me. The number of sessions recommended is based on your specific situation.

Step 3: We identify the best way for you to access your sessions. The way in which I work and help people can either be done face to face or online via Skype. I don’t want time and travel to be a barrier for you getting the help and support you need.

To Claim Your Complimentary go to https://nicolamenage.com/discovery-call/ you will then be able to select the day & time which works best for you.

Testimonial - Sue Evans Interim Director of HR and Organisational Change, West Sussex County Council

“I feel great, I am happy and I am able to live my life well.”
Firstly, I have lost weight!. As soon as the first session was over the focus and determination returned and I was able to plan and get back in control of my eating, drinking and fitness.

Secondly, I am calm and able to manage life and the people in it far better. I feel that I have gained an underpinning calmness and strength which allows me to cope better. During this time of Covid-19 in my high pressured role as interim HR Director; keeping things in perspective and to focus on what it important.

I feel great, I am happy and I am able to live my life well.

Thank you Nicola. I am so grateful for your time and skill in helping me to be the best I can be and to take back control of my eating and drinking and live my life as a slimmer, more confident and happy person.

How Hypnotherapy Works

Hypnotherapy is a very exciting natural process. Working together our job is to effectively help you to move on quickly from outmoded limiting patterns of behaviour. When the subconscious part of our mind is excited and feels safe it wants to make significant changes.

The mind is a powerful tool and once it has an agreed future vision, it can act quickly and effectively to make that vision a reality.

Do I need to come to you? Working on-line together

Over the years I have fine tuned a variety of different ways to work with clients. During your Discovery Call we will identify the best way for you to access your sessions.

The way in which I work and help people can either be done face to face or online via Skype or Zoom. So you are getting the help and support you need and deserve.

Will I still get the same results if it’s online rather than face to face?

Yes, your programme is tailored towards getting the maximum results whether online or face to face.

How do the online sessions work? Do I need to download any software?

When I work with clients remotely we need to be able to see one another. We either use Zoom, Skype or Facetime, whatever suits you. If you are not familiar with any of these apps, let me reassure you – they are all free to download on your phone, tablet, computer or laptop.

All of this is discussed on the Discovery Call, so we can find the best option for you to use.

Success Quotes

Take a quick look at this video which shows some of the great reviews and testimonials that have been offered by my happy clients. These are real reviews by real people who have used my services to transform your life. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTrJVrIhICQ

Overcome OCD and Panic Attacks A friend recommended Nicola to me. She had worked with her in the past and said she would change my life and she has!!
I admit to being sceptical at first. I did not see how hypnosis could help me with my crippling anxiety. I was desperate and was struggling to get through every day.  At the start of my journey, when Nicola asked me what I wanted to get from the sessions, I said I just want to be normal and live!!

I have gone from being obsessional about germs, which made eating out a real struggle, to being able to go for lunch/dinner with my family and dog! I can leave the house without cleaning obsessively and I am finally able to enjoy a day not fraught with worry. My insomnia is resolving and everyone close to me has commented on how well I seem. I just wish I had worked with her sooner!

Emily- Oxfordshire

Career Success
I was lacking motivation, self-belief and very low self- esteem. My limiting beliefs were holding me back. Working with Nicola the programme has been eye-opening/revealing and financially rewarding

Phillipa South Oxfordshire

Confidence and Self Esteem- I was very unhappy, I lacked self confidence, and had very low self esteem. I had been battling for years and it had spread to affect the whole of my life, the way I felt about myself, and my relationships with those closest to me.

From the initial discovery phone call, all the way through the process. Immediately after our first face to face session I felt like a changed person, I walked away feeling almost instantly more self confident and relaxed. That feeling continued, with the use of the hypnotic suggestion at home, and I could feel my outlook on life beginning to alter.

I was surprised that the sessions were not just about hypnosis, but also included a great amount of life coaching, which was just as important.For the first time in a long time I feel happy, relaxed, and confident. It is not an exaggeration to say that my whole life has changed, and I am now excited to be working towards wherever my life takes me.

I would never have dared to believe that it could have had such a profound, and far reaching, effect. You really have changed my life.

Jason Cox- Warwickshire

I no longer have to go somewhere first to do a test run of an event, I just turn up. I use the breathing techniques a lot when in stressful situations which brings my anxiety down. My husband likes that I am capable of being more spontaneous. I am no longer afraid of large crowds.
Rachel Banfield -Banbury

Business Success
Working with Nicola has been enlightening. My confidence has risen , my success rate soared and overall I feel much more relaxed yet excited about the future.
