It’s always a pleasure working with Laura. Her discussion section as part the Nutritank ‘Healthy Diet’s’ talk, was the best part of the evening. Her ability to present complex information in simplified manner and engage students is one of the reasons her work so well received!
I had a very good experience with Laura. I was trying to manage my IBS symptoms on my own with the Low FODMAP diet and was struggling to see if it was providing any relief. Laura made me feel very comfortable during our sessions and she was very knowledgeable with not only the diet side of IBS, but also the other factors such as stress. She helped me gain a clearer view of what was triggering my IBS. I definitely recommend working with Laura.

“I would definitely recommend working with Laura! I was really struggling with following a low FODMAP diet, losing weight and with healthy portion sizes. With her supportive demeanour and helpful practical advice, my diet has changed for the better, and I feel great!”

“It was great working with Laura. I was able to get in touch with my internal cues to help me mindfully change my eating habits. I’ve learnt how to listen to my body and I’ve developed an awareness of how food makes me feel. This has helped me develop a healthy relationship with food without a restrictive approach”.
Ben Smith, Southampton
“Thank you so much for all your help over the last year, for want of a better phrase it’s been a real “journey” of personal development which was totally unexpected, working with you has taught me so much about nutrition and what foods work for me personally. When we started I was totally lost and confused about nutrition, I had tried all the diets out there and was unable to stick to any of them for more than a few weeks, I now feel so confident / positive about my eating and have an understanding of my cravings/ triggers that I can manage them without giving in to them”.
Katy Dickson, London
“I would like to say a huge thank you to Laura for quite literally changing my life with regards to fostering a completely different relationship to food and for facilitating, with such ease, a new way forward, where I was finally back in control. I have lost weight on diets before, however it has always been somewhat painful, punishing even and it only changed my size for a short time, it certainly did not have the profound effect this healthy eating plan has had.
Laura’s approach is professional but also very accessible, grounded and easy. You quickly find yourself in a partnership, working together towards the same goal. Laura and I had also discussed habits and mindful eating, these things I was able to put in place quickly too, alongside the exercise, that was not excessive or unachievable.
After 3 months, I had lost over a stone and a half. That was great and after a month of going it alone, I am still at the same weight. The principles of the food plan were so easy to incorporate in to my life with no food plan and the recipes so delicious that I choose to eat them regardless.
What is even more profound than that, was how effortless in was. I think Laura is very skilled in supporting you to do some very complex work, changing thought patterns and food habits, it’s not easy (especially if you have a turbulent history with food, like I have) but making it feel somehow ordinary, no extra effort required, all achievable and within your grasp. Plus, it works, it works on every level”.

“I have always had an unhealthy relationship with food and needed some professional advice. I found Laura very easy to work with, as she was always friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and non-judgmental. Working with Laura has helped me to deal with my issues, which ultimately has provided me with the confidence to take control of my own diet. I would not hesitate in recommending Laura whatever your goal may be”.
