If you are under the care of your GP or other health professional, Laura will ensure her advice works alongside your existing treatment plan.
"Laura tailored the plan to exactly what I do and don’t like to eat. I was able to still enjoy eating my dark chocolate and nuts and even increased my lunch size to keep me going for the rest of the day. I couldn’t believe that I was able to lose weight this way but I was and I managed to get to my ideal weight within a couple of months. Laura does not do quick fixes which can soon become unfixed. The main aim is to lose weight in a sustainable and manageable weight whilst not actually realising you are on a diet – hence making it very easy to keep the weight off! “Treats” are (occasionally) allowed but most importantly for me I never go hungry!"
Danielle W (weight-management)
"I have tried various diets and weight loss programmes and never experienced results like this – or felt so happy and stable (with other positive side effects, such as radiantly healthy skin, hair etc.). Not only has this been an enjoyable and successful regime to undertake – it has also been a fascinating experience and I have looked forward to each session with Laura".
Claire H (weight-management)
"When I received the Treatment Plan I was impressed just how comprehensive it was, whilst remaining easy to understand and achievable to comply with. I have followed the treatment plan for nearly a year, and my General Health and Lifestyle have improved greatly.I cannot recommend Laura's treatment highly enough, and I am extremely thankful that she was recommended to me" Jan P (multiple health concerns)
“I always thought I ate quite healthily, but feel Laura has re-educated my food knowledge and changed how I eat. I’m feeling more equipped to handle stress, and my focus at work is much improved.” Zoe H, (working long hours with low energy levels)
