I was referred to Angela by my GP as I had been suffering with symptoms of heartburn and acid reflux for 2 years which were not being managed by medication. I completed a very detailed health questionnaire including a food diary and it was clear that Angela had reviewed my individual health history and current symptoms very carefully before my first consultation. Angela was keen to find alternative ways of reducing my symptoms by making agreed changes to my food habits and my lifestyle- introducing anti-inflammatory foods, reducing stimulants (including sugar!) and encouraging me to eat good fats and to allow more time at meals.
Within 2 weeks after following Angela’s advice I had come off my medication and my symptoms had all but disappeared. At the second consultation Angela explained to me the downsides of the medication and we worked together on a plan to avoid flare ups. I am pleased to say that after 3 consultations in total I feel confident that I have the knowledge and advice to avoid flare ups and I would recommend anyone experiencing problems with their gut including acid reflux, heartburn or other digestion problems to visit a Nutritional Therapist as their guidance and support can be life changing!
I initially consulted Angela to help with my general wellbeing as I had been diagnosed with anxiety and mild depression. I also had high blood pressure and weight concerns.
Angela was very personable, professional and very easy to talk to. I felt she really cared and totally understood my health concerns and her dietary recommendations were clearly explained and realistic. She motivated and encouraged me to look at other areas of my life which would enhance my wellbeing and I am now exercising on a regular basis.
All in all Angela was a rare find and I would have no hesitation in consulting her again and I would recommend her without reservation.
I came to Angela with ongoing IBS symptoms and low energy which were really affecting my life. Since taking on board her recommendations I have felt like a new person. My IBS symptoms have reduced substantially and the increased energy has helped me reach my goal of wanting to run a 10K race.
The advice was easy to take on, interesting and the nutrition plan was varied. Angela is incredibly easy to talk to and I would recommend her to anyone experiencing digestion problems or simply just wanting to improve their diet and lifestyle.
I saw Angela after my GP said I was facing a likely diagnosis of Premature Ovarian Insufficiency (POI), given my blood test results and symptoms and I wanted to see if there was an alternative way of addressing the issue.
Angela's approach was sensitive and caring and the plan was intelligently and individually thought through. She made dietary and life style recommendations based on an alternative hypothesis of adrenal fatigue and the changes were easy to implement and actually very pleasant! She also followed my progress across the succession of the diagnostic blood tests.
By changing my diet, sleep habits and reducing stress, my last blood test result was normal and I am over the moon! Thanks to Angela, I have adapted my nutrition and life style, for which I am more healthy and very thankful for.
I consulted Angela as I had recently been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. I also needed to continue losing weight but I could no longer continue to attend slimming classes because they were advocating a low fat approach which meant I was eating products high in sugar.
Angela came to my rescue, her consultations were very professional, informative, encouraging and she listened intently to all I said. All in all her help was invaluable and I would not hesitate to recommend Angela for the high quality of her knowledge, advice and her enthusiasm.
I consulted Angela for dietary advice to help reduce my cholesterol levels without recourse to statins. I found her most personable, professional and genuinely interested. The consultation was easy, chatty and interesting, and Angela listened carefully asking appropriate questions to bring the core issues to the fore.
There is so much information ‘out there’ much of which is confusing and conflicting. My consultation with Angela was illuminating and left me with a much better understanding of the optimum and healthy diet for me. The resulting dietary advice produced a more interesting and improved diet, both effective and with fresh ideas.
I had been diagnosed with an underactive thyroid and despite thyroid medication from my GP, still felt tired and cold and so decided to seek Nutritional Therapy to see what else I could do to improve my symptoms. Since meeting with Angela and changing my diet ( which was not difficult!), I can honestly say I feel 10 years younger in energy!
I highly recommend Angela to anyone who has thyroid issues as her knowledge of foods and supplements and her attention to detail and my individual care has changed my life around!
I had long term digestive problems, which became much worse last year due to extra demands on my time. I was also struggling with both physical and mental energy levels. I consulted Angela and she discussed in great depth all aspects of my diet and lifestyle and their effect on my digestive system and general wellbeing.
A programme of changes to both, plus specific supplements to aid speedy improvement made a huge difference almost immediately. Angela has helped to re enforce the connection between the good practices and the positive effects on my health (and vice versa) and to ensure that these become lifelong changes.
Angela has been a fantastic find. I came to see her in a sorry state and after a very professional and informative first session, where she made me feel comfortable talking about very personal health symptoms, I left feeling positive and with a clear goal to work towards. I would recommend Angela to anyone.
Nutritional therapy has turned my life around. I was suffering with classic perimenopausal symptoms: hot flushes, mood swings and menopausal acne. Add to this a general feeling of sluggishness and inertia and I was not in a good place.
The guidance and advice I have received from Angela has been invaluable. I gained an insight into the science behind nutrition and this gave me a different perspective on food. I can honestly say that within just a few days the change was remarkable - renewed energy, stable moods and clearer skin.
After a month the symptoms had all but disappeared and I had also lost half a stone! I highly recommend this route for anyone who is serious about eating well to maximise their current and future health. You won’t regret it!
Angela helped my recovery from a knee injury with advice on the best foods and supplements for me with both professionalism and bounds of empathy! I am now back to full training and coaching.
I consulted Angela with a long term skin complaint. I found her approach to be friendly and realistic with a real personal interest in resolving my health symptoms with nutritional support. After following her advice my skin is no longer a daily embarrassing issue and I feel I can now get on with my life.
