“The appointment was really helpful, Christel explained my new diet to me in depth and made sure I understood which foods to avoid to have a fully gluten free diet. She also provided lots of resources in the post which were very helpful surrounding my condition of celiac disease “

    I am writing on behalf of my Mum who has been working with Christel for the last 12 weeks, we were recommended to her to help my Mums very complicated digestive system. My Mum has a hiatus hernia, was suffering with very bad pains, cramps, bloating, digestive issues, she couldn't swallow her food, her gut was slow moving and she had low moods to name just a few issues. My Mum has been suffering for over 15 years and was beginning to feel like there was no hope in ever feeling better. I live in Australia and Christel was kind enough to time my Mums appointments so we could do zoom meetings all together. During the sessions Christel helped Mum understand what was happening inside her body and broke down what she needed to do to help bring her digestive system back to a normal range. She was so patient and kind with Mum who was feeling quite overwhelmed by the idea of changing her diet. Christel gave us simple, clear instructions that were easy to follow, as well as explaining in very easy to understand examples why Mum needed to do what she was suggesting. In the 12 weeks we have been seeing her, my Mum has gone from strength to strength, she doesn't suffer with the pains or bloating as much as she was and she is so much brighter and happier about life and how she is feeling. We honestly can't believe the huge change in her in such a short space of time. There is of course still more improvements to be made going forward but Christel has given Mum the strength and confidence to go forward and continue on her journey to better digestive health. We genuinely couldn't recommend Christel any higher, she is absolutely wonderful, she's a wealth of knowledge delivered in a kind and supportive manor.

    Christel was so understanding and helped me so much in every way possible through a very difficult time. Helped me to understand my body what was happening to me why i was so poorly. Hopefully now i can move forward & be much happier to live as much as a normal healthy life without severe pain every single day & to manage to eat my food without discomfort & distress. She is very patience & kind lady.

    When Christel first started consulting with me I was feeling ill most days and at a loss how to control my IBS symptoms. Christel was able to explain clearly a plan I should follow, she has a professional manner but is very easy to talk to. Throughout my treatment she has been very helpful and has always replied to my questions quickly. 3 months later I'm feeling much better and in control of diet.

    I had been referred to Christel due to suffering from IBS, having issues for well over a year! I cannot explain after having 3 sessions with Christel how much better it’s gotten making day to day life easier! Christel is really easy to speak to explains each stage of the process really clearly so you understand and if you do need assistance along the way she’s more than happy to help. I would defiantly recommend Christel to any friends & family in need of a dietician.
