“I was constantly exhausted with continuous upset stomachs. I suffer from Coeliac disease, and the fatigue was so bad some days I could not function and found it very difficult to sleep.  Over a period of time following Helen’s advice, diets and  supplements my health has improved hugely.  With Helens recommendations my sleep has massively improved , my energy levels have increased, and I generally feel so much better.  Helen really changed things for me, and I feel much healthier than I have done in years.  I feel like I am a different person” 


“I had high cholesterol and  I was surprised that after only a few weeks of following Helens guidelines my energy levels were noticeably improved. By the end of the 10 week plan I had lost weight and physically and mentally felt better than I had for some time. The greatest benefit was that my cholesterol levels halved which I believe were a direct result of the dietary changes I had implemented” 

“I have had diabetes for over 20 years. Helen not only taught me the basics of a healthy diet with specific focus on blood sugar levels but provided me with constant guidance and support. After following her plan I was delighted that my diabetic measure had reduced significantly and that I had lost a stone in weight. I feel healthier and happier and now have a new outlook on my approach to food.” 


Some people prefer face to face and Helen is available for one to one consultations at Active Solutions clinic in Ascot.

For those who have a busy schedule, online appointments are available too.

What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional Therapy uses scientific research to understand how the body interacts with food and how health can be influenced by what a person eats.

It takes a holistic approach to health by considering how diet, lifestyle and environmental factors may have contributed to a person’s current state of health.

By taking into account these factors a Nutritional Therapist creates personalised diet plans that are based on long term improvements to a persons health that are specific to their health goals with the aim of achieving optimum health.
