What my clients are saying:
"I started working with Gemma as I was struggling to manage the symptoms of a long-standing, auto-immune condition and wanted to try a more holistic approach. Most of all, I was desperate to feel better!
The sessions with Gemma have been incredibly helpful in so many ways. Gemma is not only professional and hugely knowledgeable but also very calm and empathetic, so I felt at ease from the start. The testing and analysis was very worthwhile as it gave us a starting point to work from, but the ability to talk through the technical details with Gemma so she could recommend appropriate solutions was invaluable. I have learnt so much!
The fact that all the information is contained on a secure portal is also brilliant as I can, and do, refer back to it frequently. Best of all, the results I achieved in such a short space of time, in terms of easing of symptoms and then a reduction in prescribed medication were simply incredible.
Having worked with Gemma, I feel like a different person. Before, I felt frustrated and powerless with regards to my condition, and was in a cycle of flares and periods of remission, which were out of my control and impacting many areas of my life. I had already read up a lot about my condition but often the information was confusing and/or contradictory. Gemma was able to cut through all the detail and suggest practical solutions which were tailored to me.
Whilst the condition is still there, I now feel I have more knowledge and tools to manage it and to support my general health. As a result, not only has my physical health improved but my mindset has completely shifted.
If you are in a similar situation to me, and are considering whether to work with Gemma I would say ‘Do it!’ Working with Gemma will give you huge support plus empowerment to take back control of your health and wellbeing"
"I sought help from Gemma after becoming ill with suspected COVID-19 and not recovering as I thought I would as a 'healthy' woman in my early 40's. For months after being ill from the virus I continued to have debilitating fatigue, stomach pain and bloating, heart palpitations, and I was unable to do much at all (most of my day was in bed or on the sofa). I had medical tests which were all 'normal' and my GP had little to offer me.
My illness and health problems have felt very overwhelming at times. But Gemma is brilliant at thinking about mind and body, explaining what could be happening to me in ways I can easily understand, and helping make a plan and deciding where to start. Every time I speak to her I feel back in control of myself. I also have hope again!
Gemma has encouraged me to continue GP contact and she works alongside the medical advice and tests. She has been able to help me understand blood test results. I have also been able to have other tests through Gemma which have revealed ways I can help my recovery which I would not have known about otherwise.
My recovery is going to take time, but thanks to the changes I've made to my diet and lifestyle with Gemma's help, I now have relief of many symptoms (some I've actually lived with for many years and didn't know I could do much about, like gut problems, brain fog and PMS).
I know I would not have made the progress I have without Gemma's caring guidance and expertise. Her knowledge of biochemistry and nutritional therapy have been invaluable to my recovery. Thanks Gemma!"
"I came to Gemma with chronic fatigue and food allergies, looking for help to eat the right things and to heal. Gemma is great at listening and being present to how I'm feeling, and very clever at sorting out what needs to happen first. I feel much more optimistic about sorting these issues out, because it's quite complex. I feel that already my gut is beginning to heal. I would 100% recommend Gemma for anyone struggling with their health."
"I came to Gemma as I was struggling with heartburn and feeling lonely and confused dealing with it on my own. Our work together has helped me to think a lot more about my needs food-wise and my eating behaviours. Implicit in the work was a message that it is 'right' and not indulgent to take care of myself. I would, and have, recommended Gemma as a knowledgeable practitioner who keeps the whole person in mind."
"It was a pleasure to work with Gemma. I was diagnosed with IBS 20 years ago so I've tried a lot of different things but with limited success. Gemma gave me some good advice and suggestions which have really helped me."
Gemma took the time to hear my whole health history, and explained how different issues I was experiencing could be connected. She helped me have confidence to make some changes to my eating patterns that I had been considering for a while, and gave me some information on food choices that could help my hormonal function.
