Don’t take our word for it, here are some comments from previous clients
I feel compelled to write and tell you the difference in my daughter Ps’ wellbeing since you our visit to you.
From infancy, P has always suffered with eczema, mainly in the crooks of her elbows and the backs of her knees, but also quite severely on her hands as well. From time to time it would become better or worse but never completely disappeared. However, when she hit puberty her symptoms become much worse. Her arms became completely covered in eczema and patches also began to develop on her torso and (to her complete horror) her face too. This is tough for anyone to endure but particularly unbearable for a thirteen year old. She spent the entire summer in a cardigan and shunned activities such as swimming and school games.
We paid several visits to our GP who prescribed steroid cream and when it became infected antibiotics. They provided us with several different strengths of steroid creams and also large pots of emollient cream. The suggestion was that the emollient should be applied six times a day to keep the eczema at bay, something which anyone would find difficult, but for a thirteen year old who just wants to be the same as anyone else, this was nigh on impossible.
I had known for some time that you were a nutritionist, but never thought you would be able help with P’s predicament. It was quite by chance that one day we were chatting and you happened to mention how eczema was often a result of food intolerances. We decided see what you suggested, feeling we had nothing to lose. Initially P undertook a wheat and dairy free diet for two weeks. Immediately she noticed her skin becoming less itchy. At the end of the two weeks we slowly re-introduced wheat, as you had advised us to and there was no worsening of her symptoms, continuing without any dairy products.
It is now six months later and P is a changed girl. She has no eczema on her arms or hands at all. She frequently wears sleeveless tops and enjoys swimming and all the normal activities a teenager should. She recently commented on how she never thought her hands would ever look as good as they do now.
I therefore wanted to write to say a huge thank you from P and me. Your diagnosis and treatment plan changed my daughters’ life, giving her so much more confidence. She is now a normal carefree teenager.

I've had different nutritionists over the years and Nic puts them all to shame. Nic cuts through the rubbish, strips down what you thought you knew (especially about yourself); blows apart common myths, media marketing, and scaremongering; then applies the real science, insight, and just as importantly - the understanding of people, emotions, and all the challenges that life throws at you. Add all that up (and the calm, safe, and confidential environment that Nic creates) and you're onto a winner. I dread to think how many hours Nic puts in behind the scenes for each of us but you can see she's driven by a passion for what she does and a passion to help people (which makes it invaluable and incredible value for money). I always thought that I was a bit of a smart-ar*e when it came to health and nutrition but Nic humbled me in an hour and made me realise why we need people like her (and that I should stick to what I know and trust Nic to handle the important stuff). I don't recommend people easily but I know people will thank me for recommending Nicola - snap her up before the celebs and athletes get wind of her. Very impressed.
Nicola has been an amazing help to me since I went to see her at the end of 2011 with some nutritional related health issues. I have learnt a lot and have been more persistent with my doctor because I've learnt to be more assertive when it come to my own health. I would recommend Nicola's services to anyone that knows they need a friendly and professional expert with a passion for what she believes in.

Just a quick email. Really enjoyed your talk the other night, and I am pleased to say that we have all made changes to what we eat in the office! I think what made me realise more than anything was just how well you looked! Feels really good to be making positive steps, so thank you for giving me the kick up the bottom that I need to understand a bit more and make positive steps to a healthier lifestyle!
Nicola's advice has been invaluable in improving my health

My daughter’s condition has really improved and in making changes to her diet she now has more balanced meals. She would wake several times a night due to itching now it does not bother her at night. She has also embraced lots of new foods in her diet and even at 3 has a real understanding that certain foods make her condition worse.
Very insightful, a great help and feels very positive to be doing something constructive about my weight issue. 3/4 sessions is a great start to the process and 100% useful….Overall a very positive experience that I wish to continue in order to make sure that the changes I am trying to implement are changes for life and not just another “Fad” diet! Thanks Nicola x
Many thanks for your help in identifying and helping me identify how foods/toxins affect my body. I hope that this will be a change I can embrace for my life.
I found Nicola extremely supportive and helpful during the process. She is very enthusiastic, professional and is a great nutritionist.
