Extremely informative and in a way that’s very easy to understand. I’m a skeptic by nature but after seeing a friend have the same report done, was very interested to go through the same process myself. Really pleasantly surprised by how much detail the report goes into. Having Rachel go through the report with me made the information really digestible and would say it would of been quite confusing otherwise. Really happy with the whole process and will continue to recommend to friends and family who I haven’t told already :)

Bloating and loose bowls no more! Extremely impressed with Rachel's simple yet effective dietary advice that was easy to implement and gave great results. With a few tweaks in my food I've gone from daily struggles with my digestive system to a flat tummy and no problems with passing stools. She did all this without selling me any 'super food' powders or supplements - just sound scientific advice. I can't recommend Rachel enough as the best nutritionist I've ever seen.

Saw Rachel for first consultation a month ago and followed the Fodmap she suggested to improve my bloating symptoms. As a result I cut out a few thing from my diet and within a short period, my symptoms have disappeared. I feel lighter but most importantly much happier in myself. She is so personable and treated me as an individual. I can't recommend her highly enough.

After a long search on the internet I decided to contact Rachael to help me with my weight loss journey. After our first meeting I was very happy with her advice, she is really knowledgeable and supportive. At no point she either judged me or tried to lecture me on my terrible eating habits. She also gave me lots of useful tips. I contacted Rachel as my aim is not just to lose weight but to make a life style change on my day to day life. I have to say I couldn't be happier I found her!

Rachel is a great dietitian and able to handle difficult cases. She is also passionate about what she does and constantly learning and up to date with all the latest research which is very important to me. I attended a series of excellent lectures and I have signed up to get the DNA report/consultation and I am really excited about it. It is a one-off report that I will have for life. Also through her lectures she answered every question the group had for her with skill and expertise. There is so much information out there and many of the things I had read, or been told turned out to be complete myths - and she was able to explain why based on science. This is the advantage of going to someone who has had extensive training and isn't trying to sell you ongoing false promises, products, expensive supplements, treatments and instead gives healthy balanced advice for how to eat in sustainable and also affordable way. She has done her homework and the 7 years of study shines through. She is also kind and understanding when advising on difficult health conditions, and she has work experience in hospitals. I have been to a number of these types of advisers and she is one of the best I have come across.

I went to the clinic yesterday, Rachel is extremely knowledgeable and professional. I am really pleased I started this journey for the weight management with her. I am also happy about my progress and she is able to make you understand why you eat different things and also she helped me with different suggestions. During the visit yesterday we spoke about what I ate and what I can improve, we tried to identify barries and how to overcome these, and I found this very helpful in order to achieve my goals. Reachel also made me feel very comfortable during the session.

After suffering with digestive issues and IBS for the past 2 years and following many different highly restrictive diets from nutritionists, Rachel used her scientific methods to identify what foods were causing my awful symptoms. I now eat a balanced diet with only a few restrictions - I honestly cannot thank her enough!!..My quality of life has drastically improved
