“I had such a positive experience with Sophie from City Dieticians. I came with a lot of anxiety and stress around lifelong food issues, and Sophie always had an enlightening answer or suggestion for everything - she was never stumped! There were so many lightbulb moments and Sophie helped me realise where my food issues started and why I need to delve into that before my food issues can clear up. If you comfort eat, when you 'diet' whatever you are comforting yourself from will overflow, and your coping mechanism of eating perpetuates. I would never have been able to see that for myself and so my time with Sophie has been invaluable. A really supportive, caring and holistic approach.“

    Sophie was so thorough and went through my medical history with me to gain a true picture of my diet and allergy history. Since having a stoma my diet has been incredibly bland, and Sophie has helped me introduce lots of fruits and vegetables I was previously advised to avoid. I love having colour on my plate again rather than just beige!

    I was super lucky to work with Sophie. I live in Canada and struggled to find a dietitian with expertise in stoma's, ileostomies, and ulcerative colitis. Prior to working with Sophie, I really struggled with food and had a limited diet. Thanks to Sophie's expertise and patience, I slowly but surely have found foods that I can manage and I now have dietary approaches that allow me to better manage high output, blockages, and living a balanced life. Thank you so much Sophie!

    Sophie was highly professional and friendly and put me at ease. We created a plan based on my medical needs and her professional medical experience. She listened and understood my worries and concerns. Sophie checked for my understanding and I felt I was in a safe pair of hands, someone who understood my complex medical needs and the nutrition i need. Thank you so much. I can’t recommend highly enough.

    I have spoken to Sophie on a couple of occasions and I cannot thank her enough! She is lovely to talk to and her caring nature shows through in the way she communicates. She put a lot of my worries to rest and has been the main contributor to me understanding what is going on in my body and how to treat it. Where the Doctors at the hospital helped me with getting better, they provided no after care or any kind of instructions on how to get better at home, so much of my journey has been through scouring the internet - which is where I found Sophie! She really set my mind at ease and answered questions that I didn't even know I had. She provided answers at a time where I didn't know how to get them and created a healing plan. Cannot recommend her enough!

    Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS)
    I saw Sophie via zoom about my GI symptoms related to Ehlers- Danlos syndrome. Sophie provided me with support and guidance around not only my diet but also has written to my GP regarding medication. I’ve seen many professionals in the past about my EDS but Sophie is the only professional I have seen who has supported me with my GI symptoms related to EDS which greatly impact my daily life. I have autism so often struggle to communicate with healthcare professionals but Sophie made me feel so safe and supported that I felt able to have a really helpful appointment with her. I would really recommend Sophie to anyone looking for a dietitian for support, especially with EDS.

    I spoke with Sophie for the time today via zoom. She was so friendly and understanding. I received more information today from Sophie than I have had from consultants and doctor's in nearly 3 years. I have ulcerative colitis and I have been struggling with my dietary needs. She went through everything from start to finish and left no stone unturned. I am excited to start my journey with this lovely women. She was so understanding and I felt really comfortable talking to her. Thank you Sophie x

    Sophie has been brilliant. Friendly, knowledgeable, supportive, down-to- earth and caring. I was at the end of my tether when Sophie was recommended to me. She very quickly responded to my plea for help and within a day or 2 we had an initial call and set up our first online session for a few days later. Sophie patiently listened to my issues and asked me pertinent questions and didn’t confuse me with long woes or unfamiliar terms. I felt relaxed and trusted her virtually immediately. She sent me through everything she said she would and is even sourcing a heath psychologist in my area (Edinburgh) too. I’d say that’s going the extra mile without charging an arm and a leg! Given the COVID-19 situation and the fact I live nowhere near London, online is really the only way to communicate efficiently. I feel this has in no way adversely affected the quality or effectiveness of our discussions. Sophie listens & genuinely wants to help. I simply can not recommend her highly enough.

    I came across Sophie by chance following a virtual panel event on bowel conditions . I was looking for someone who had knowledge of coeliac disease and IBD . For the first time in years I felt listened to and understood , Sophie asked relevant questions and explained everything to me . Sophie genuinely cared and I feel positive after our first consultation . I look forward to implementing the advice I have received .

    I had a first class experience from Sophie; she provided me with a comprehensive review of my dietary requirements. I was impressed by her depth of knowledge and I’m benefitting from her advice based on my desire to reduce my meat intake as part of a balanced diet. I’ve had no trouble implementing her plan

    Sophie is fantastic- a really supportive, kind and knowledgable lady! I had my first appointment with Sophie last weekend and she listened to my issues, thoroughly explained what’s going on and has pulled together an action plan for us to work on together. I really couldn’t recommend her highly enough and look forward to further appointments.
