I met with Catherine because I was having trouble sleeping and wanted to come off my cholesterol busting medication. We had a REALLY intensive consultation, when she found out much more about my body and how it works than anyone else ever has, and then she prescribed a few supplements and gave me dietary advice.Moyra Simpson, North London
The result is, that I am sleeping much better – 19 nights out of 20, I sleep like a baby – and I have been able to come off the statins because my cholesterol is now within the normal range. It was all really sensible advice and I really felt that she listened to me and treated me as an individual. Suffice to say, I am a big fan and highly recommend her!
I met with Catherine after having had a miscarriage and, prior to that, 18 months of unsuccessfully trying to conceive. Whilst I generally eat well I realised there was more I could do to make positive changes to my lifestyle and to feel in control of a situation that was becoming emotionally draining. Catherine started by looking at my overall health and addressing some digestive problems I had been living with for years (under the misguided belief that all women have IBS symptoms - don't they?!) After about 6 weeks my digestion issues had vastly improved and 3 months later I was pregnant!Kate, Nunhead, London
I am now in my 17th week and so far have had a very smooth pregnancy with absolutely no sickness and minimal tiredness. Feeling very positive for the next 6months and beyond! I am very grateful to Catherine and very much appreciated her practical, achievable approach to making nutritional and lifestyle changes.
I went to see Catherine after trying unsuccessfully to get pregnant for about 2 years. She helped me to understand what was going on in my body, and the ways in which what I consume and my general lifestyle affect how my body does or doesn't function. In particular she taught me how hormones levels are linked to diet and lifestyle. This holistic understanding made a lot of sense to me, and Catherine sent me for some very detailed tests which confirmed her diagnosis.Lucy, London
I changed my eating habits considerably, and 3 months later I got pregnant, had a great pregnancy and now have a happy healthy baby girl.
Thank you Catherine!
I spent 2 years having tests and seeing doctors, only to be told that I didn't have a medically recognised disease that could be treated with medicine. My gut/digestion wasn't functioning but there was nothing they could do, it was up to me to manage the symptoms. 2 hours with Catherine and I have a new diet and health plan and practical advice that actually works.Matthew, Peckham Rye, London
The symptoms are gone, I have lost 2 stone, and my quality of life is much better. I eat less because my body is digesting my food properly, and my confidence has returned. Thank you Catherine.
My body was completely out of balance. I had severe pains, cramp and restlessness in my legs. I was addicted to sugar, my blood pressure and cholesterol were very high. I had to take antacids every night for indigestion, I slept badly, I was tired all the time and overweight. All these problems impacted on my social life and I found it difficult to exercise and even do my everyday chores. From the first consultation I felt empowered to change my lifestyle. Catherine’s passion and encouragement and the confidence she instilled in me inspired me to change my lifestyle and my eating habits. I was given an extensive nutritional plan which included supplements and recipes and sensible advice tailored to my needs.Marjorie Ferguson, Crouch End, London:
Doctors do not have the time or the inclination to listen or to care holistically, Catherine listens and one feels cared, especially as a line of communication is always open. I have lost 8lbs quite quickly and have kept it off even over Christmas. I no longer crave sugar, I can now enjoy line dancing without pain, and the leg cramps and restlessness have all but disappeared.
I feel healthier physically and mentally and I am extremely grateful to Catherine for her advice and help which has without doubt, changed my life.
I hadn't been to a nutritionist before and wasn't quite sure what to expect. Would she be very disapproving, and put me on a diet of mung beans and beetroot juice?Tamsin Growney, London
I was keen to get healthier,but I really wasn't into denying myself the pleasure of eating regular, delicious meals, even in the short term. I needn't have worried. Catherine is a total foodie. She plied me with ideas for virtuous gourmet experiences, along with her delightfully simple recipes. Catherine sparked a revolution in the way I cook, eat, and think about food. And I feel loads better: lighter, livelier, happier.
There comes a time when you are forced to stop ignoring the signs your body is giving you. I was bloated, on medication for high blood pressure and cholesterol, and generally feeling burnt out. Some of my body’s functions were impaired by previous chemotherapy and I just didn’t feel ‘right’… I knew I had to take responsibility for my health in hand, and seek help outside of the GP’s surgery.Kate Halls, Derbyshire
Catherine’s advice and support has been revolutionary, and I don’t say that lightly. Not only has she given me advice on nutrition and supplementation, her unique, holistic approach has given me courage to address other areas of my life that were not necessarily at their optimum. I now have a fuller understanding of what is going on in my body, of how stress impacts digestion, and an individual nutritional support plan.
I’ve noticed many differences: My daily seven strong cups of tea are now caffeine-free Rooibos; I delight in my weekly veg box delivery; I no longer crave sugar; I am building better eating habits for my son; I sleep better; I have more energy; I’m nurturing myself; I have lost weight… but most of all, I feel a real sense of optimism about my health, and that is invaluable and empowering. I feel immensely supported by Catherine on this journey, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.
