I needed some help with bloating and cramps and also losing weight. Since working with Louise, the bloating and cramping have stopped completely. I feel a lot better in myself and I am enjoying eating well. I also used to constantly think about food and have cravings for sweets/chocolate and carbs mostly. Since I eat a lot better and the bloating/cramping have disappeared, I don’t think about eating all the time. The cravings have gone. I don’t eat the cakes and other snacks that people bring into work, I actually can say no now! I eat better, I sleep better, I feel more energised in general. I would recommend Louise as she is very knowledgeable and will help you try different things until you find your happy level. Since I feel so much better, I have stopped complaining about food related ailments, so even my partner would recommend Louise!!! More...

As I’ve grown older I’ve found it more and more difficult to keep my weight down. I exercise regularly and have a reasonably healthy diet, and generally maintain a level at which I’ve been, in the main, happy. After a ridiculously busy 2018 I needed to recharge and we had a fairly sedentary Christmas. Much as we were running or walking every morning we then spent the rest of the day on the sofa with a book and I was easily tempted into a glass or two of wine. Getting back on the scales in January was a huge shock and my reflection wasn’t showing me a pretty picture. I was going to be turning 50 in April and wanted to look fabulous. I realised this wasn’t something I was going to achieve on my own, so decided to get some help, and that’s when I contacted Louise.My short term goal was to look fabulous for my birthday party, but my long term goal was to increase my energy levels and understand why I was finding it more difficult to lose weight in the hope that I could stop it creeping up, year after year.Louise gave me some very simple changes which had an immediate impact. Although I didn’t lose much weight initially my clothes weren’t as tight, and my reflection didn’t have me recoiling in horror! She helped me to understand how my metabolism worked and how and when to feed it. My morning energy began to improve, so that I wasn’t waking up feeling groggy.I’m happy to say that I achieved my short term goal, and the positive impact that changing my diet is having is making it so much easier to keep the weight off and keep my energy levels up. There are days when it isn’t easy to keep to the programme, but it’s so much easier to get back on track now, that I’m not wracked with guilt if I do have a day like that. I would definitely recommend Louise to anyone who is looking to lose weight as she is very sympathetic and approachable and she will work with you to make sure you achieve the results you want to.

I came to Louise in rather a sorry state, having been following the FODMAP diet for some time without really understanding why this had helped a little and too afraid to come off of it! Louise helped me to establish that I had SIBO Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth, which led me to recognize and understand so many of the symptoms that I had been suffering from. Not only did Louise suggest a program for controlling the SIBO, she helped me to settle on some supplements to address the tiredness and lethargy I struggled to understand. I believe that SIBO can lead to malabsorption, leaving us unable to absorb vital elements of our diet. I recovered quickly once I followed Louise’s suggestions of the right supplements for me, and if I have a relapse ( too much Christmas pudding etc.) Louise has been able to suggest a way to quickly get back on track. I have transformed from eating a very small range of foods to everything I enjoy…mealtimes and eating out in general have once again become pleasurable. Although my GP was helpful it is Louise that has the expertise to steer me to once again be able to enjoy my food and not to be afraid of the pain that it would so often bring. . I really could not recommend her gentle but extremely knowledgeable and competent manner highly enough. More...

Louise is just the BEST! She is so understanding and kind. She really made me feel so excited to start a healthy lifestyle. She explains everything in detail and why something isn’t necessarily working for me (and what would work better). She is always posting the most helpful and interesting information on social media that has even helped my friends. I’m so pleased and so happy!! More...

I would highly recommend Louise, after thinking about getting in contact with Louise for a little while, I finally got brave and made the phone call. After losing weight by exercising and counting calories I’d got to a point where I wasn’t losing anymore weight, no matter what I was doing. Louise made me feel very comfortable and after our first appointment I was happy to try what Louise had advised me, ( even though I was slightly concerned about the calories I would be eating).Louise is always there at an end of an email and our weekly visits kept me going, I am now on week 8/12 and I’ve lost weight, not only have I lost weight I’ve got a better relationship with food, which I haven’t had for so many years!!! So if you’ve hit a brick wall, want a better understanding about food then get in contact with Louise!!! The only thing I’ve got left to say is Thank you Louise xx More...

It has been so helpful seeing Louise over the past year to talk through my health issues. Louise has given me insight into how best to support my body through nutritional supplements and small changes that lead to greater changes. For me it is a slow process putting all the advice into action but I am still working on it and that is thanks to Louise's advice and support. More...

Only had one session with Louise so far but I found it really informative and interesting. It was nice to feel fully understood and take away useful recommendations. Looking forward to my next session in a few weeks. More...

I have received advice from Louise for many years and she has changed the way I think about food. She has shown me how a good nutritional diet can change my energy level, my mood and my immune system. She has given me advice that is easy to apply to my daily routine. Louise has motivated me to change my diet and also suggested supplements that have been very beneficial to me. I would highly recommend her! More...

After spending the last 5 years with all the diets on the market and my weight fluctuating terribly I decided to get some professional help. After 2 sessions with Louise and some very basic changes to my life style which entailed eating a more balanced diet with emphasis on long term goals and a more stable digestive system, I am now into my 6th month with my weight being stabilised.I have a lot more confidence when I stray from my plan as I now know how to control this in the long term.I cant recommend it enough as its just simple professional advice that means that I have a long term plan to work to with someone always on hand for constructive help.

I have suffered with fatigue and severe IBS for around 10 years now. I've just had my final (for now) session with Louise, as I finally can say that I feel 100% well. Louise has been simply awesome. I enjoyed our sessions as Louise makes me feel very relaxed and comfortable; she has a very calming presence. Louise is a very knowledgeable person I feel like I've learnt more from her about my conditions than I every did from any GP or blog. I'm SO glad that I contacted Louise as I would never have got to where I am today without her guidance.Louise is very good at explaining why she is making particular recommendations and is also great at give practical suggestions on how to make the changes more manageable. I highly recommend Louise and can't urge you enough to let Louise help you with your condition. More...

For many years I have suffered from low mood and periods of anxiety coupled with weight gain of which I have sought doctors advice. Having found very little support and advice, I decided to take a more holistic approach and looked into the nutritional aspect seeking advice from Louise. From the initial phonecall and meeting with Louise, she understood what I was looking for and what needed focusing on. Using her extensive experience and knowledge, she was able to provide me with practical advice on nutrition, nutritional balance and suplementation. Not only has she provided me with advice on the nutritional element, she has also counselled me on exercise and lifestyle changes.It has now been a few months and I feel much more at ease with my emotions with more optimism and a lot more energy. My quality of sleep has improved dramatically and I am feeling more content then I have in many years. I have lost (and continue to lose) weight which I have struggled with in the past. I am beginning to feel like the real me again.I can't thank Louise enough for her advice and support and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is looking for nutritional support.

I first saw Louise after an operation for cancer. She offered professional nutriental advice to counter all the medications I had been given during my hospital stay. Louise's suggestions helped to balance my 'rickety' system and I felt I began to heal. I found Louise to be open and approachable. When I was at a low point she was encouraging and uplifting. I would have struggled without Louise's support and see her as an important person in my recovery. More...

Louise is an empathetic listener who will listen to what your current or ongoing nutritional problem is and come up with workable solutions that are tailored to your individual needs. I have been consulting with Louise because of some issues with my digestion and stomach acid levels. She has been very helpful in determining the causes and recommended some supplements and that I should cut down on gluten which has helped.I highly recommend Louise! :) More...

Q&A

A balanced diet is crucial to living a long and healthful life. Eating well now can reduce the chances of developing chronic illnesses later. Nutritional therapy can also be used to overcome current health concerns.

I love working with lots of different people who have very different stories. The highlight of my job is when my clients come bouncing back into my office full of energy.

I wanted to make a real difference to the people that I work with, and being my own boss gives me the flexibility to do that. I didn't want to be contricted by the restraints the NHS put on consultation time, resources and programme individualisation.

I work hard to ensure that my clients achieve their health goals. I do this by working with them to create an intervention that suits them. I keep up-to-date with latest research in order to deliver cutting-edge advice to my clients.
