Good nutrition can make the difference between you feeling just “okay” and feeling in top mental and physical form. However, eating in a way that supports your health and is nevertheless enjoyable is a challenge for some people. Many people try to make positive dietary and lifestyle changes to their own health or family health, only to be confused by conflicting advice, and/or overwhelmed by complicated and unrealistic regimes.
I understand the challenges involved in making dietary and lifestyle modifications within busy family and office environments. My aim is to help you strike a balance between the two and impart practical nutrition advice which you can apply lifelong, and which is grounded in evidence-based nutritional principles.
My clients come to see me for a variety of reasons at my clinics in Marylebone/Baker Street (NW1), St John's Wood (NW8) and Canary Wharf (E14): healthy eating, weight loss, low energy, gastro-intestinal conditions, female health, male health, stress-related conditions, cardiovascular health, healthy ageing and/or because they are interested in genetic testing to help optimise their diet and lifestyle.
I offer an EXCITING and INSPIRING RANGE of special Wellness Packages to suit my clients' needs and aim to inform, enable and support you to become an active participant in your well-being.
Nutrition education alone is often not sufficient in addressing the challenges we face with chronic health issues. The eater has his/her own psychology, and this is equally important in optimising nutritional programmes and well-being. As Hippocrates said “It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has”.
For this reason Clinical EFT, or Emotional Freedom Technique (also known as "Tapping"), is incorporated into nutritional programmes where appropriate, by mutual consent. Clinical EFT is a non-invasive,evidence-based psychological tool (not therapy) which has its efficacy grounded in scientifically validated research studies. EFT is particularly helpful for emotional eating, where eating certain foods is linked to both feelings of well-being as well as negative feelings about oneself.

Firstly, I take a holistic, or “Functional Medicine” approach and address the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. This means I look at the complex web of interactions between body systems, the environment and client lifestyle patterns that can contribute to imbalances and influence long-term health.
Secondly, I don’t ask you to give up all your favourite foods. Why? Because nutritional advice and programmes based on choice restriction usually fail. People get tired of feeling deprived. They go off their programmes, and even worse, then feel bad about themselves for not having enough will power, discipline, or motivation to stick to their regimes.
Thirdly, I don’t just explain to you what you need to do, I help you do it. Your progress is monitored and you are guided until you feel you can confidently support your well-being. Step-by-step, practical dietary and lifestyle modifications are introduced which are realistic for you- and within your comfort zone. This way, adjustments will fit into your lifestyle and consequently have a more lasting impact on your long-term health and well-being.
Complex mixture of symptoms
“I started seeing Sylvia last year with a multitude of concerns which my doctor had over the years been unable to resolve fully. Sylvia is endlessly kind and patient and incredibly smart. She has spent so much time unpicking the problems and giving me constant advice and support way beyond the extent of any other practitioner I have come across. Her advice has made a real, physical difference but perhaps more importantly has put my health back in my own hands. Sylvia really is exceptional – in her knowledge, service and value.” JR, Camden Town.
“I met Sylvia when I moved to London. My personal trainer referred me to her. My focus is health, happiness and longevity. Every meeting with Sylvia was jam packed with helpful information. I always left the meetings with a skip in my step because not only does Sylvia impart nutritional information but she incorporates a lifestyle/holistic approach. She knows all the tips and tricks to set you on the right path. Sylvia is so personable, you can tell her everything. She is your instant friend. She is so smart and knowledgeable that she can guide you through the detailed plans with assurance and smiles. I learned so much about food and life during our two year relationship. I can’t recommend Sylvia highly enough“. K.M. Londo
Seminar for Bacardi-Martini Corporation Limited
“We invited Sylvia to join us to run an interactive 1 hour session on nutrition during our January well-being month. I found Sylvia to be a joy to work with before, during and after the event. She understood our brief and combined basic clear nutrition information with topical subjects including food and alcohol, superfoods and “is low fat really low fat”? I would definitely not hesitate inviting Sylvia back should the occasion arise”. Heidi Wood, Senior HR Manager, Bacardi -Martini Corporation Limited, London
“Sylvia is always willing to support wherever I am in the process and to help me unravel the issue. She is always respectful and encouraging to get to the bottom of things and unearth what is really there. She is also very sensitive and goes with the emotion of where we are in the process and uses EFT both thoroughly and ethically. Blending her knowledge of nutrition and EFT works perfectly together.”
”I have been seeing many doctors for the past 5 years for my stress-related illnesses. I have never been able to handle stress easily in my life and to find the right treatment that would help me mentally and physically. When I first visited Sylvia, I was still suffering from head pain, panic attacks and severe nervousness. I was feeling low and my comfort eating was out of control.
In my sessions, Sylvia supported me and helped me to identify the issues in my life that brought on my head pain and nervousness attacks. In my first session, the pain in my head and the tightness in my chest disappeared. I now feel healed and relieved of my fear, resentment, anger, sadness, self-condemnation and all the other negative thoughts and feelings that were connected to my nervousness. I now feel happy, calm and at peace and I don’t have the need to eat compulsively like before.
Sylvia has taught me such a simple and powerful tool which I will continue to use for the rest of my life and will share with my family and friends. It has completely changed my life for the better and I am so grateful for getting my life back. Thank you so much for everything.“ A.M London
