What my clients say
"Ali will always be a super hero to me and my family. I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 17 and I am currently 33. My partner and I have been trying to conceive for 12 years. BMI is a big problem when trying to receive fertility treatments with the NHS. One of the side effects of PCOS is retaining weight. I had tried all the standard diets and had some success but it didn’t get me anywhere near where I needed to be to receive treatment. I had felt I had run out of options so I started only eating 1 meal a day and a tin of beans . Again this only got me so far and not near my goal. I wasn’t at the weight level I could have IVF but I could start clomid. I managed to conceive on clomid but sadly lost the baby. My husband and I decided to go back to the drawing board, after much discussion we knew we needed a professional. We agreed I had done all I could on my own. That is when Ali came into our story. Ali listened to what we needed and what we had been through. She made me a 4 week meal plan that I could eat 3 meals a day with snacks. It was music to my ears not to be hungry all the time. She made me a diet that I could eat and still lose weight. It was bliss. I managed to lose enough weight to start IVF. We are currently at this moment 14 weeks pregnant with our first successful pregnancy. Ali has been such an instrumental part of our journey. We never would have had IVF without her and her expertise. She is kind, understanding, supportive and amazing. She 100% the type of person you want in your corner when you need help. I would recommend her to anyone. For whatever reason you are looking for a nutritionist you will have found the right person in Ali" SB, Swindon
" I consulted Alison as I had been experiencing a number respiratory infections and really wanted to gain some control over what I was experiencing as opposed to being merely reliant on medications. What impressed me the most was the depth of Alison's knowledge in the underlying causes to my health problems. After an in depth consultation, she devised me a nutritional program that was realistic, affordable and most importantly fitted with my life style. The result ... I enjoying having more energy and trying the delicious recipes Alison devised for my meal plans. A big Thank you Alison" AW, Swindon

"Ali helped me tackle my high blood pressure and recent weight gain with an easy to follow plan. It wasn't difficult to put into practice, as she only included foods I like and can prepare easily" BH, Swindon
"I booked an appointment with Alison because of major problems with my skin. Alison adjusted my diet quite drastically (which needed to be addressed anyway), and educating me on what foods would be beneficial for me to eat. Within a month I'd seen drastic improvement of my skin and not only that, I had much more energy in my daily life and found getting out of bed much easier!
I would highly recommend Alison. She's kind, goes well above and beyond and gets results! Thanks Alison!" MP, Swindon
"I knew what a healthy diet should consist of and I've always been very active, but I had recurring anaemia and a hormonal imbalance. Ali showed me which foods suited my body and helped me tackle my health issues with an achievable dietary plan". LM, Swindon
What is Nutritional Therapy?
What makes you individual is not just the food you eat, but the trauma you have experienced, your inherited genes, the lifestyle you choose, the family and friendships you keep and your own, special microbiome (the family of bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa that live inside your body). These factors are all interrelated to make up the jigsaw puzzle that is ‘you’. Nutritional Therapy is about piecing this jigsaw together through science based research, in-depth consultation and discussion and in some instances, biochemical testing. Where a piece of the puzzle is missing or damaged, nutrition and lifestyle factors are adjusted, sometimes with the help of supplements, to regain balance in the body.
As a Registered Nutritionist, I believe in proactive, preventative healthcare. However, I never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their GP.
I am fully qualified and insured, with a BSc in Nutritional Therapy from The University of West London and professional registration with the British Association of Nutrition and Lifestyle Management (BANT) and The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). Prior to Nutritional therapy, I spent many years as a qualified, registered care manager, running homes for people with severe and complex needs.
