TESTIMONIALS:

Anita Smith (44) 

I recently decided to seek help from a nutritionist. I had to have a hysterectomy in 2018 and since then I had slowly been putting on weight. I was also struggling with extreme exhaustion most days. 

Sonia was friendly and approachable throughout and never made me feel uncomfortable in any way. She was really positive which I found reassuring as I know my relationship with food wasn’t great.

Sonia put an eating and menu plan together for me. This worked really well for me personally as the plan was based around all the foods that I do like. She helped me factor in healthy snacks everyday to control my constant hunger but also explained in detail the types of food I should be eating at every meal to control my hunger and give me the main nutrients I need. 

As a result I was willing to try the plan and found it surprisingly easy to stick to. I was motivated by wanting to lose weight and feel healthier and happier with myself.  3 months since my first meeting with Sonia I have also lost 1 stone in weight.  I would thoroughly recommend her services to anyone.

Sonia gave me helpful information regarding nutrition. I especially had issues with eating good fats which with her help and making me understand, I now eat regularly and have been converted from eating anything that said low fat or diet. She also made me realise that over training can be damaging and that taking rest days is healthy and good for you. She changed my mindset and I have seen the benefits of this in my training and eating habits.

Thank you for the opportunity to evaluate my eating habits / food intake to analyse where and why I was experiencing bloated feelings and discomfort after eating certain foods. I already had an interest in food, food groups needed to maintain a healthy body, but was experiencing some discomfort in areas after eating certain foods. Sonia tailored what I already knew to suit my own personal needs. She analysed my lifestyle, eating patterns and which food groups were the cause of my bloating and discomfort.

Following the advice given to me, I made a few changes to my diet, introducing more beans, pulses and legumes and when I fancied a sweet fix, choosing foods with natural sugar. I thought that I had a good basic knowledge and understanding of food and what the body needs, but with the expert advice from Sonia, I was able to introduce changes to my diet and as a result, I no longer experience any of the conditions I did before.

I love food..... most foods in fact! So this was reasonably easy for me to do. After following Sonia’s advice I had noticed differences in both how my tummy felt after eating and also my energy levels with the new foods I had introduced into my diet.

I would thoroughly recommend Sonia to help anyone experiencing any problems or difficulties in this area as I also found out that many different situations, emotions and lifestyle has a massive impact on our bodies and the way it functions.  Thank you Sonia

I would just like to say how impressed I was with the knowledge and information I received from Sonia. I wanted to see a nutritional therapist as I had reached that time in my life (call it middle age) when I had noticed a bit of a tummy appearing. This was due to my way of eating. Quick sugar fixes, gaining weight and basically there was no structure or pattern to my eating habits at all. Added to this, there were medical conditions in the family history, so just having an awareness of all these things made me think “it’s time to address this!”

Sonia discussed with me how and what I was eating and the times I was eating too. My whole lifestyle / work life meant I had little routine in my diet. I had gained abdominal weight, which I wasn’t happy about either. After listening to my information, Sonia was able to address everything that was contributing towards what was happening with my body and the way it was functioning. I was advised on what I could do... preparing healthy snacks and lunches to take to work with me rather than grabbing a chocolate bar etc. Keep fruit with me for natural sugar fixes to hold those hunger pangs at bay.

I wasn’t drinking hardly any water either, so we worked out a plan to suit me where I could keep track of my water intake (counting the gulps from each drink) which made a big difference. Once I began a more regular food and water intake and reduced the sweet fixes, I found that I not only felt better within my body, but I also was sleeping better at night and even achieved a regular sleeping pattern which also made a difference to my overall health.

Since taking the advice from Sonia, I feel so much better in myself. I feel I have the knowledge of food and what different foods are needed to aid certain things in my life and I also feel I am now in control of my body and fuel intake.

I would recommend Sonia to anyone who is looking for the answers to any questions / problems that they are experiencing within their diet and body conditions.

Throughout the consultation, I felt totally at ease with Sonia. She made me feel comfortable about the experience and her knowledge and passion for what she does shines through.

Many thanks Sonia

For those looking to work with me on a 1:1 basis, I offer an initial free 30-minute Zoom session where we can discuss your health goals and talk about suitable programmes for your specific needs.

Appointments can be conducted either face to face or online. Available in British Sign Language and English 

** Process of working with me 1:1**
An initial free 30-minute call/Zoom is welcomed.
Between us, once I have heard more about your current health concerns and goals we can decide on the plan and initial time frame of support required. 

Once payment is received I will send you a detailed health questionnaire that needs to be completed, along with a 3-day food diary. This gives you a chance to detail any medication, genetic history, family illnesses etc along with your signs and symptoms.

This enables me to start my research so I can create a bespoke nutritional plan for you. We will then have our 1st face to face or online consultation (approx 1 hour), where I can go through this in detail.

From there I will then create your own nutrition plan and advice which will be tweaked as we go through the programme. I may also ask for certain blood tests to be run via your GP ( we will discuss this) depending on our consultation and your own needs. Working together is key so we can get results for you.
