SUPPORT DURING CORONAVIRUS ISOLATION
This April, I am running an online Health Camp, a community support group, set up to support people with their health, immune system and to eat as healthily as possible.
You can find out more and join by clicking this link:
I also have a free downloadable guide: Natural Ways to Support Your Immune System, which you can download here:
If now is the right time for you to make significant changes to your HEALTH and LIFE, then we should talk…
I work with women who want to reclaim their health, their energy, their body and boost their immune system...
Do any of the following statements resonate with you?
"I want to improve my health/weight/life but I don't know where to begin"
"I'm fed up of restrictive dieting, which no longer works, and leaves me hungry, tired and miserable"
"I have stubborn belly fat, which I cannot shift, no matter what I do!"
"I sometimes, or often, feel out of control with food"
"I spend too much time thinking about what I should or shouldn't be eating"
"I wish I could get back to the shape I was ten, five, or even two years ago..."
"I hit my 40's and lost all of my energy ..."
"I suffer from gut issues but can't seem to work out what's wrong!"
"My hormones have started to go haywire!"
"My hormones are affecting my enjoyment of life"
"My health is deteriorating and I can't seem to get to the bottom of it"
"I'm fearful of the future, and getting older and feeling like this, or worse! "
"I want to be fit and healthy when my children grow up, and grandchildren arrive"
"I want to make some major life changes, but I need some help and guidance"
You're not alone! I work with many women going through these, and more, struggles...
I support women with health concerns or illness, weight issues, dealing with unwanted habits or behaviours, and stress.
Women who are ready and willing to make the necessary changes.
I help women to discover their true passions, to make big life changes, and rediscover a true feeling of calm, peace, and wellbeing.
My mission is to help you to return to health, vitality, and wellness... and to want to spring out of bed in the morning!
Whether your goal is weight/fat loss, improved hormones, health and energy levels, to resolve a specific health issue(s), or to change other areas of your life that you are unhappy with, let's chat.
If you are a woman in your mid 30’s, 40's or 50's
AND you are ready to make changes to your health, your body, or your life....
Without having to resort to fad diets, pointless tactics, or medications that mask symptoms and don't improve your health...then we should talk.

WHAT OTHERS SAY
In this video my client Carlise explains how she went from exhausted and agitated to energetic, and back to her old self! Carlise was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroid Disease and despite being on high dose of medication, and told that her thyroid levels were absolutely fine, was feeling far from it. After 8 weeks Carlise is back to the woman she was, full of energy and her great sense of humour!

In this video, my client Nichola shares what a difference my programme made to her understanding of her health, improvements that she noticed in her energy and motivation, and the impact on her family too.
Nichola Sutherland, Virginia Water
"Before reaching out to Vee, I felt flat and sluggish all the time. No matter how much I slept or rested I had no energy or motivation. I had ongoing and intermittent gut issues and I couldn’t put my finger on what was triggering them. I went to the Doctor and had blood tests for thyroid problems, however the results said negative.
I tried eating what I thought was 'healthy', only to be hungry and still lacking energy and motivation. I struggled with low mood and worried feelings and thought that the extra weight I was carrying was the primary cause. I did know one thing for certain... I was not my happy self that I had been in the past.
That is when I found Vee, had my initial consultation where I felt immediately comfortable as Vee listened intently to the challenges I was having, reassured me that through a balanced low GL diet I would see vast improvements and that we would work together on getting my wellbeing back on track.
Whilst working with Vee, I found out that I was borderline hypothyroid which was a light bulb moment as all the symptoms I had now made sense and I could start to make changes to my diet to ease these. Vee helped me determine that my gut was extremely sensitive to gluten, therefore by removing gluten from my diet my gut issues disappeared. The sugar cravings came to a stop, my uncomfortable feelings eased, my mood and energy levels started to increase and I noticed I was no longer struggling to get out of bed in the mornings as my sleep has drastically improved.
I never felt hungry and was surprised by how much food I was eating throughout the day with the benefit of the excess weight starting to come off.
From initial consultation and throughout the 3 months working with Vee, the key thing that stood out to me was that Vee was always focused on ‘me’ and tailored the support, guidance and advice to my personal needs.
Vee’s warm and open nature nurtures the trusting and honest relationship needed when sharing what can me intimate issues you want to focus on. Vee makes herself available outside of consultation times when you have a query or concern and you simply need some advice or steer so that the support is always there. I’m ever grateful of Vee’s skills and knowledge of Nutrition and the positive impact it has had to my overall wellbeing and lifestyle. Vee has equipped me with knowledge and skills that are now allowing me to continue my healthy lifestyle journey independently."
Celeste Hamilton, Staines
"I joined with Vee just over three months ago, my main goals were to lose weight, feel more motivated, know what the triggers were to my bad eating habits and feel more motivated.
Vee worked very closely with me, offering ongoing support and guidance, she demonstrated 100% professionalism throughout our fortnightly meetings and was/is and has always been available when I've needed any questions answered.
I've learnt so much about myself over the past three months and achieved all of my goals.
I've lost over a stone in weight, my metabolic age is now 39 in comparison to the 57 I started out at and I've lost of 5 inches from my waist and hips.
I would definitely recommend Vee to all my friends, family and colleagues, her recipes are amazing, tasty and nutritious and there's a huge variety.
My whole attitude has changed as have my eating habits and attitude to food and exercise, thanks so much Vee I couldn't have completed and achieved all that I have without your positive and professional input and ongoing support."
Joanna Crawford, Ashford
"I had attended one of Vee's talks and that had me thinking. I bumped into a friend that day too, she had been with Vee a while and it had made such a difference to her, you could see it. On my first appointment I could hardly walk up the stairs, my brain was foggy and my body just didn't want to move. I slept at every opportunity. By the next appointment I had lost my brain fog and had started being awake all day and not nodding off! I just improved at each appointment and lost some pounds as a bonus. I am now considered "active" as opposed to "couch" and last week I hit "very active" on the app I use. I now feel I'm living again.
Thank you Vee for helping me to become me again."
Mandy Nowicka, Staines
"It is easy to lose weight but hard part is to keep it off! I am 58 years old and during the last 20 years have struggled with my diet and my dress sizes yoyo. I found it just easier to buy bigger clothes and easy to cook ready meals or take-aways - for a while that was ok. My cholesterol sky-rocketed, my tummy bloated and since the the change kicked in everything became chaotic: the mood swings, night sweats, metabolic rate crashed and then my body decided to move south! I felt invisible and completely out of control of my emotions and my eating – food seemed to control me. I would eat the fridge when under any kind of stress.
I knew I was comfort eating and let my thoughts dictate my eating and decided what I need was to change my lifestyle and my thinking. I wanted to learn more about nutrition too. I didn’t really know where to go for this support and advice. For a while I had a personal trainer and he advised me that being fit is 80% food and 20% fitness. He advised me to consider getting my eating under control and introduced me to Vee. Vee helps me understand how to control my diet – her expertise as a life change coach and nutritionist really works for me. It hasn’t been easy an easy journey and looking at your emotions and where they come from is at times uncomfortable, you need that right person - someone you can trust and feel safe with to share those issues – however big or small they are. Vee showed me how to change my thoughts or just accept them rather than turn to the fridge or chocolate!
There are the odd glitches but she has helped me to understand where my thoughts come from and to change those to more positive thoughts and outcomes. She is encouraging me to get to my target weight and I have lost some weight and can’t wait to get to my spin class now – my knees don’t touch my tummy anymore! I enjoy food and I am changing my habits too, I make more nutritious and healthy meals. I am learning to put myself first and be less of a people pleaser. I cope with life’s pitfalls more easily and I know for sure that if I didn’t have Vee (my guiding star) in my life I would be at least a stone heavier and my wardrobe would be full of more extra-large sized clothes. I have gained so much more than losing weight – my self belief and inner strength and most importantly I feel lighter in the mind, soul and body. I wish I knew her 20 years ago!"
Jayne Featherstone, Laleham
"My whole relationship with food has changed since I have spent 3 months working with Vee. I intially contacted Vee to lose some excess weight, but 3 months on and I have achieved so much more than just weight loss. I now have a much greater understanding of how food affects us, which has helped with my allergies and intolerances and other health problems. I am no longer calorie counting religiously, but have lost the weight I wanted and my bodyfat percentage is down 7%. I am eating more than I was before, when it seemed I could never lose the weight, as I wasn't eating the best way for me. I now feel much healthier and I am enjoying food so much more as I don't feel guilty for eating all the time. Following a programme with Vee has made me so much happier in my day to day life and I will always be very grateful for this. Thank you Vee!"
Catrin Good, Staines
"When we first visited Vee I was unsure of what to expect. With some medical problems and a number of medications to take my gut was a bit of a mess. Vee was very easy to talk to, very knowledgeable and explained everything in a very easy way to understand. We thought we had been eating healthily but Vee explained where we were going wrong. With menues, recipes and lots of advice we have changed our eating habits, feel much better and are losing weight slowly. We have also been sleeping better and therefore more awake and lively in the day.
Thank you Vee"
Wendy & Alan Green, Staines
"I've enjoyed working with Vee immensely! Always offering insightful advice, Vee has a very friendly and approachable way of working. Vee helped me pinpoint exactly what was and wasn't working for me specifically, helping me shift weight I hadn't managed to by myself over many years. Using Vee's advice, I've also cleaned up my cooking, my cupboard, and my eating habits and feel healthier and more energised! I'm very grateful to all the support Vee has given me and would recommend her to anyone!"
Lilian, Walton on Thames
"I have had the pleasure of working with Vee on my weight loss and general well being journey and I have found her mentoring invaluable. Friendly, always encouraging and never critical, even on my down days she would give me the right advice and inspire me to not give up and stick to the plan. With every single issue I personally had, she would come back to me with tips and suggestions on how to tackle it. She truly cares about her clients and obviously loves what she does. I would highly recommend Vanessa to anyone looking to not just lose weight, but those who want to improve their overall well being, have more energy in their everyday life and have the positive attitude to deal with other areas in their life."
Mando Papathomas, Surrey
"I have just completed a eight week health and weight loss program with Vee Vital. My main goal was to lose a little weight that had been building up over the past year. I'd tried many fad diets but just found them unsustainable. I had bought many books but really didn't know where to start. From day one of the course I had a clear eating plan and felt very enthused to give it a go. I was amazed that I was actually eating more and didn't feel like I was being deprived as I had on previous attempts. What I didn't appreciate is how much better I would feel in my self, definitely less tired and depressed.
The weekly group sessions are great for comparing goals and realising that many of us have the same obstacles in life. We also covered many topics including a very interesting talk from an image consultant. I found Vee to be knowledgeable and professional. She is quick to respond if you have any queries during the week and is very motivating in a friendly manner. I lost the weight I wanted, with many people commenting on how well I looked. It has also changed the way I feed my family, all for the better."
