My appointments with FODMAP Consultancy were extremely useful. I found it helpful and constructive to talk with someone who was highly trained and experienced with all aspects of the Fodmap diet. My questions and concerns were dealt with sympathetically. I learned a lot about IBS and feel confident about the way forward for me. I know help will always be there if I have any questions. I would not hesitate to recommend Debra to anyone troubled with IBS, the sessions have changed my life for the better. More...

After having suffered for many years with IBS and having many "accidents" I thought enough was enough. I went to my doctor's and told him of my constant diarrhoea only to be told that as long as I'm not losing weight I shouldn't worry. Well many nights out ruined and holidays cut short I decided to Google my symptoms and I found FODMAP consultancy. She has saved my life, my dignity and given me back my confidence. I'm half way through the program but I am symptom free after four weeks. It's not a diet yet I've lost five pounds, with no bloating, no wind and most of all no "accidents". I can't thank her enough and I'm looking forward to now finding out which foods are the cause of my IBS. Try it for yourself, what have you got to lose. More...

I couldn't fault Debra. Her advice was straightforward and easy to follow. She understood what I was struggling with and was able to help me accordingly. The resources she gave me to use at home have helped be able to help myself. My only regret is that I didn't go and see her sooner. She has helped me get my life back on track and can't thank her enough for her help. More...

After struggling with IBS for many years I have been amazed by the change that the FODMAP diet has made to me. I’m now able to go out with confidence and while it’s not the easiest plan to follow the results for me were so positive and rapid that I was keen to see the plan through. Debra took time and care to explain everything very clearly and kept in contact throughout. She was professional but also empathetic. All in all a very positive experience. More...

Meeting Debra has been a life changing experience for me. I had been diagnosed with IBS and suffering its symptoms for over a year. I had heard of Low FODMAP diet, trying to adhere to it in a fashion but frankly getting nowhere. Symptoms remained, in the end I didn’t know what to eat or drink.I found FODMAP Consultancy online and made an appointment to meet Debra. Her knowledge and expertise are profound. We had a detailed meeting and I came away with a plan which I followed religiously over 6-8 weeks. The change in my symptoms was remarkable. I felt so much better. My confidence returned, and although eating out was tricky I soon learned what suited me and was able to enjoy company again. I will now start to reintroduce FODMAPS into my diet over the coming weeks, hoping to isolate the foods which cause problems. Thanks to Debra I am now in control of my food, it does not control me. This is liberating and I am so glad to have met this remarkable lady. Two visits is all it took. More...

I’d been struggling with the symptoms of IBS for years, and had little advice from my GP except to take medication 3 times a day. I contacted Debbie after hearing about the FODMAP diet and she met with me to explain the process. From the start Debbie has been incredibly helpful and has made the whole process so much easier. My symptoms are almost completely gone and I have stopped taking my medication. I’m now on the reintroduction phase and working out what foods cause me to have flare ups. I could not have done this without Debbie’s help and would recommend her to anyone who is struggling with IBS. Thanks Debbie! More...

Prior to meeting with Debbie my IBS symptoms were affecting me about 2-3 times a week. I tried to identify triggers myself but felt really lost in understanding what was causing my symptoms. It was difficult in work as I had to be careful what I ate and when as I work in the community and symptoms would often come on fast after eating and this also impacted on my personal/social life. My symptoms completely disappeared as soon as I started the low FODMAP plan. I was very strict to adhere to the plan and it has completed changed my life. I no longer have IBS symptoms, I don’t have to worry about what and when I eat and this has positively impacted on my mental health and I no longer worry about sudden symptoms starting. I am about to start re-introducing food groups to identify my intolerances and feel very positive about the future thanks to Debbie’s expert knowledge and advice. More...

After a few years of eating various foods that made me feel unwell and numerous visits to the GP I decided to contact Fodmap Consultancy in the hope of finding answers. In my first meeting with Debra it became clear that I needed to make changes to my diet and within a week of following the plan my symptoms were much improved. Would highly recommend to anybody who is having dietary issues. It's certainly made me feel 100% better. Thank you for sharing your expertise. Diolch. More...

Having recently started the 'restriction phase', I can't thank Debra enough for the initial consultation and going through so thoroughly the information I need for these next few weeks. I was feeling apprehensive beforehand but I was put straight to ease during the first meeting.

I was diagnosed with IBS in 2003. Despite numerous GP visits and no success with any medication prescribed, I came to the conclusion that I would just have to live with the condition and let it control me. I contacted Debbie and within two weeks of starting the FODMAP diet, I was completely symptom free. This has had a massive impact on my day to day living – I am now in control, knowing what I can eat without worry of repercussions. I cannot thank Debbie enough for all her help and advice. More...

I’ve suffered with ibs-c for more than 10 years. I’ve been back and forth my GP countless times only be be prescribed medication that helps with treating the symptoms and nothing to help treat the underlying cause. Debra was recommended to me as she had helped a friend of a friend control their ibs.I made an appointment with Debra and she was so helpful. I came away feeling so relieved that I had finally got the help I needed. I only had two appointments with Debra and my ibs had significantly improved within weeks, just by following her advice. I can not recommend Debra enough. Her advice has been life changing for me. In total I received 3 booklets from Debra that guided me through what I needed to do to help control my ibs. Debra was also contactable if I had any questions. I still use those booklets today. I no longer suffer with ibs, it’s amazing and has been life changing!Absolute value for money and I highly recommend Debra. More...
