About me

How I can help you

Hello, my name is Sylvia Salvendy and I help empower women in their 40s and 50s to take back control over their weight and health, so they can feel slim, self-assured and amazing every day.

My lovely clients want to lose weight once and for all, without resorting to faddy, complicated diets and deprivation. They often struggle with cravings, bingeing and/or emotional eating, as well as with low energy and digestion. They want to get slim, and feel energised and their absolute best.

Does this sound familiar?

My ladies often feel embarrassed and self-conscious about their body, worry about their health, and find it harder and harder to lose weight- even though they exercise more and have tried every diet on the planet. 

They often yo-yo diet, only to put the weight back on again (and more sometimes), are often hungry, deprive themselves, don't know what to eat anymore, agonise about what to wear before going out, and dread clothes shopping.

They feel disappointed and demoralised when yet another diet fails them, or blame themselves for lacking the willpower to lose the weight and keep it off (hint: weight loss isn't about willpower).

They are often confused by all the different diets out there, and just can't figure out why the weight isn't coming off, and/or staying off. They stop believing they can ever lose weight for good (hint: yes you can!). 

Get slim now

The great news is that you can lose weight for good, and in a sustainable way! I use a simple, tried and tested step-by-step plan to create healthy nutrition and lifestyle habits, and I teach you everything you need to know  to lose weight and keep it off (hint: it's not just about what you are eating- powerful hormonal imbalances are also at play)!

Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.

Chronic Pain, Weight Loss, Panic Attacks, Poor Sleep, Thyroid Dysfunction to Health Transformation

I have been a patient of Sylvia’s for a decade. When I first saw her I was working in advertising, was burned out, stressed, had been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, had panic attacks and zero thyroid function. I had three broken discs and even moving around was hard, It was miserable. I had put on 30 kilos and just couldn’t manage everything on my own any more so I thought I’d at least get some help with my weight. As all my other conditions were ‘chronic’ and having seen more doctors than I cared to remember, I really believed that not much else had room for improvement, it became normal to wake up in the morning and want to go straight back to bed. And, and, and.....

I got really lucky the day I went looking for a nutritional therapist and was given Sylvia’s details through a professional body. What I thought was going to be a getting back to my usual weight with several obstacles (which I would have been really pleased with) turned into a transformation of my health and well-being which I couldn’t have imagined at the beginning of my journey. Everything changed, absolutely everything. One by one she turned every one of my symptoms around, being 30 kilos lighter is irrelevant compared to disappearing panic attacks, poor sleep, pain which made me mobile again, which allowed me to improve my general fitness, which made me want to exercise, which made me feel better, which eventually made me feel brave enough again to change career and move country. She is one of those special people who have a huge impact on your life and who you are always grateful for.

Obviously I can hardly recommend Sylvia highly enough. The sheer breadth and depth of her professional knowledge, her sensitivity, her thoroughness and perhaps most importantly her honest desire to see you get better make her an outstanding practitioner and just a great person to have in your corner. I know myself that it can be hard to take the first step but if you are reading this, you deserve to feel better and you have found the right nutritional therapist. They just don’t come any better. You will never regret it. J. Richards

Bladder Pain Syndrome & Weight Loss

I suffer from a rare chronic disease of the bladder called Bladder Pain Syndrome. It’s a debilitating disease which is affected by anything I eat or drink . I looked up Sylvia on Google and she was the only Nutritional Therapist who had come across my problem and had previously helped another sufferer . I was told by doctors that my problem was incurable and was put onto lots of different drugs ( none of which helped with the pain). I knew my issue was caused by food and the help given by medical professionals is very limited . Sylvia had written a blog about IC so I felt that she had some idea of how to help me.

When I met her I was blown over by how kind and lovely she is . I was not intimidated and she did not tell me off for anything I may not have done which was encouraging. She helped me to look at a fabulous natural way of dealing with all of my separate issues and the supplements have changed my life . She has advised me with diet and gave me the tools to help myself with books, recipes and lifestyle changes. I put into practise most of what she gave me to try and I am now in remission which I feared would never happen!!

The tapping she does is also amazing and has helped me in times of desperation . I feel like Sylvia is an angel who came to save me as I was very depressed and at my wits end when we met . I now have a new lease of life and feel fantastic . On top of all of that she has also given me the best advice ever about exercise and I’m starting to lose some weight gained while on medications.

Sylvia is professional, kind, caring and you connect with her so she is there for support . I felt very open with her and trusted her opinions and I felt confident and comfortable around her. I highly recommend Sylvia and can’t praise her enough for stopping my pain and bringing back the old me ( improved version of course!) . She helped me when nobody else could . Out of the darkness came the light . She was there like my angel to guide and encourage a new lifestyle and I’ve never been so happy . Thank you truly from my heart for all the help and support you have given me . I feel like Sylvia is not just a therapist, she is my friend . Natasha Bonner Age 46

Gastrointestinal Problems for 20 Years Affecting Sleep and Energy

Your advice and wisdom is giving me a lot of hope and inspiration. Your goodness and kindness have touched me deeply. The way you work so much more personal and caring than any health professional I have ever experienced. You put your whole mind and heart into it and it means so much for the person being helped on so many levels. Father J.O. M., R.C. Church

Worry & Poor Sleep

Just to say thank you for the recent most helpful sessions I have had with you. I am particularly grateful to you for introducing me to tapping. I use it to deal with a variety of issues, including worry & not being able to sleep. You are a good listener and I have been impressed as to how you applied everything I had talked to you about to the tapping. I feel I am now in the right direction. H. H.

Health Optimisation

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 self-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. London

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.” J.R.

Developing a Healthy Relationship to Food

Working with Sylvia has led me to a lot of "ah ha!" moments and I feel at lot calmer and at peace with my eating habits. I am now able to have a treat without succumbing to the all or nothing approach, which ultimately led to bingeing. Previously, I felt trapped by these habits and did not know if they'd ever stop, I am happy to say my mind is a lot clearer now - I've seen a vast improvement with my relationship to food. Sylvia is great at helping you sort through your own mind, assisting you in clearing the path for a lot of breakthroughs to a healthier mindset, for me  particularly in my relationship to food. L.M.

Weight Loss

"I was very over-weight, I had trouble sleeping, trouble concentrating at work, and spending lots of money buying terrible meals and sweets throughout the day. I wasn't sure I would be successful in losing the weight I was hoping to lose, and I was concerned that after an initial period of "faking it" I would give up and quit.

But the programme with Sylvia completely changed my health. I feel amazing, my sleep routine has much improved, which in turn has improved both my private and my work life. It has also led me creating a very healthy fitness routine. Sylvia taught me what healthy eating is - she taught me how to eat so that I wasn't hungry. That changed everything: once I wasn't scrambling to stuff food down I could start thinking about which food I was eating, and slowly moving to a healthier diet." D. W. Canary Wharf

Healthy Eating During Ramadan for International Bank

I work for an international bank and wanted to plan an event for the Muslim Network, one of our employee groups. As Ramadan was approaching I wanted to ask a guest nutritionist to come in and speak about eating well for the month, and contacted several people. Sylvia was the only one who actually listened to the brief that I provided and was highly proactive. She answered all of my calls/emails/texts (very important when event planning!), and was highly professional throughout.

The end result was a presentation that I was extremely happy with - she had clearly researched the topic well and the results were clear. Her presentation was interesting, engaging and highly informative. I could not recommend her enough and the feedback we have been receiving from our members on the event has been phenomenal. She even offered two complimentary services, including an offer to follow up with some tips post-event to ensure people stay engaged with the topic. She is wonderful to work with and I am just so pleased!" M. HR
