My clinic is based in Leckhampton, Cheltenham (GL53) where free parking is available. If you prefer consultations can be held in the comfort of your own home within 30 miles of Cheltenham Town Centre. This can be a great environment in which to meet as I can include a kitchen audit where I will go through your cupboards and give you advice on which foods to keep, which to stop purchasing and what to stock up on to improve the sense of health of you and your family.
I hold consultations during weekdays, weekends and evenings.
Online, email or telephone consultations and support are also available and I offer ongoing support to clients via email and phone.
Initial consultations last approximately 60-75 minutes and follow-up consultations approximately 45-60 minutes.
"Before I saw Laila I was a bit nervous she was just going to tell me to stop eating everything I loved and make me eat lentils every day! However, after having some tests, making small changes to my diet and taking supplements my symptoms were better than they had been in 15 years and I felt fantastic." M.B., London.
"Laila gave me loads of practical and useful advice, including meal plans, not just what to eat but how to eat and some great, simple ways to relax. The kitchen audit was great as I was able to see how many of foods I had in my cupboards and fridge were not helping me and learnt what to replace them with. I was impressed by Laila's medical and supplement knowledge."
"Laila helped me work out whether food intolerances were affecting how I felt and worked with me to create an eating plan which challenged many of my old views on what made a healthy diet. It was also easy to maintain with no time and a fussy eater as a husband. Laila was non-judgmental, patient and empathetic when I slipped up, and always happy to help even after our consultation." K.P., London
