About me

If now is the right time for you to make significant changes to your HEALTH and LIFE, then we need to talk…

I work with women who want to reclaim their health, their energy, and their body...

I help women who are struggling, often despite being successful in many areas of their life.

- If nothing seems to be working for you, but you know there has to be another way, then this is for you.

- If you've been suffering from long term gut issues, and can't work out what is going on, then this is for you

- If you feel plagued by emotional eating issues, then this is for you

- If you’ve tried diet after diet, with no long term or sustainable success, then this is for you

- If stress or fearful feelings are affecting your enjoyment of life, then this is for you

- If hormonal symptoms are affecting your enjoyment of life, then this is for you

- If you are exhausted when you shouldn’t be then this is for you

- If you have an underlying health issue that you just can't get to the bottom of, then this is for you

- If you want to get back your body and your life back, then this is definitely for you!

Whether your goal is weight loss, improved health and energy levels, to resolve a health issue, or to change other areas of your life that you are unhappy with, I am the person to help you.

It is absolutely possible to feel great at any age. You can achieve whatever you want... with the power of the right food (and plenty of it), and correct health education, combined with support and coaching with me

You can unlock your true potential, break down limiting beliefs that have been holding you back, and gain back your power to live the life you dream of!

If you are a woman in your mid 30’s or beyond
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.


I am a registered Nutritional Therapist, a qualified Health and Life Coach, and an Essential Oils Educator.


I also work with many people via Video Link, FaceTime and phone. Location is no obstacle to working with me.

I use a wide range of tests, when required, including: vitamin/mineral levels, hormone imbalances, digestion and gut health, and more, via the NHS and through private laboratories.

I am fully insured and regularly attend leading Continual Professional Development courses to keep up to date with developments in the world of nutrition and coaching.


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.

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!

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

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."
Tracy James, Surrey

"Before the course, I found the whole topic of nutrition overwhelming to say the least.  This course broke it down into several, manageable and relevant chunks, to allow me to make better choices in my life.  I cannot tell you how much of a positive influence it’s had on me! A few weeks ago I was eating badly and not noticing how my body reacted to things.  Now I can really notice when I’ve eaten something that my body doesn’t like.  This is allowing me to recognise what’s good and bad in order to make better choices in my life. Not being a great cook meant that when I started the course, I had only a few ingredients that I really used in my daily meals.  Now I’ve got a far greater selection of raw ingredients to work with and a much more interesting diet.

9 weeks on I’m feeling healthier, have far more energy and am noticing things like not only is my skin brighter, it’s also regenerating quicker and better. I was told by a friend at the weekend that my skin looked so much brighter and healthier – so the effects are being noticed as well!"
