“Emma has helped me so much with understanding my relationship with food.”

“Emma is extremely knowledgeable about nutrition”

One-To-One Sessions

“Working with Emma has been so great in helping me to understand my relationship with food, and how my body works and responds to certain food types. She is super knowledgeable and I have learnt so much to help me manage my eating better. I’ve done it alongside a weight loss plan and I really feel like I have so much insight into how to do this effectively and safely making sure I’m giving my body everything I need to get through the day in a healthy way! I’ve loved our sessions and I would highly recommended to anyone who needs help or guidance.” E. Welland, Bucks

“Emma is the right person to ask for help with anything related to eating. I’ve enjoyed every session I had with Emma. She’s very motivating and totally supportive. Emma guided, coached and educated me and I found that extremely helpful. I cannot describe what a great impact Emma had on me and my partner’s lives, as it helped to unite us. Thank you for everything you’ve done for us.” T. Fiovola, Hampshire

“Emma and I met at the right time for me. She listened, probed and challenged me where I needed her to. Her experience and knowledge was evident immediately. I learned a lot about how I use food as a stress management technique and how I use food to care for myself. I learned how to apply more academic thought before making a choice on food and to be less emotional. We parted ways with me keen to care for myself in other, more nurturing ways, and I have managed that. I’ve brought in new, non-food related routines to my days that give me great comfort. I came in to the relationship with a very clinical, harsh goal of weight loss. I’ve managed some but settled with an acceptance that I’m doing pretty good as I am. Thank you Emma.” L.Stephenson, Scotland (online sessions)

“I have so enjoyed the sessions I have had with Emma. She is extremely knowledgeable about nutrition and I have learnt a lot about how my body really works. Many of the phrases she uses have stuck with me – they are now part of my psyche. No longer will I limit myself to eating boring foods just because they have a low calorific value. Rather I will “Develop my Inner Gourmet” and only eat what I really enjoy! When I now find myself about to hastily pick up something to eat, I remember there is “Power in the Pause”! I can honestly say that I left each session feeling prepared and motivated for the journey ahead. I always looked forward to our sessions knowing I would leave with an increased capacity for change and clearer on what my body needed. I always felt encouraged and empowered by Emma.” C. Cameron, Beds (online sessions)

“I had been looking around for some time and called a few people to see if they could help me with some challenges I was experiencing around food and eating. Emma’s confident and warm approach on our initial chat made me feel confident enough to take the plunge and face my challenges with her. She was brilliant. We had all of our sessions during lockdown so I never actually met her in person, but the Zoom calls worked quite well as we were still able to talk in person. Her approach was very personal, and coming out of every session I felt I had the tools to try new things to challenge the issues I was having. I was nervous about making changes and what impact it would have on me but Emma helped me work through these barriers and find ways to overcome these nerves. Quite honestly I feel like a different person because of the way Emma has helped me to feel more free around food and eating. I’m so grateful for her approach and support and would recommend her services to any person who is struggling with anything in relation to food, eating and diet”. C.C., Surrey (online sessions)

“It was enlightening spending time with Emma as a couple to analyse our eating habits, and this included learning about and identifying simple ways of ‘calorie-shaving’. Emma is patient and easy to talk to, and sent follow-up information after each session for us both, to help us stay focused. Small changes result in big changes!” N. & H. H., Surrey

“I came to Emma most recently for 1-1 sessions, having previously attended a group session on Emotional Eating. This time I felt that I needed some 1-1 support as I had got in terrible cycle of binge eating and was feeling awful about myself and very sluggish. Emma was a great listener and totally non-judgemental in her approach, so I found I could be very open with her in a way that I could not with anyone else, even my closest loved ones, as I was ashamed of my eating habits. Through understanding my issues, Emma supported me to develop a step by step approach to helping myself – there were many ‘light bulb’ moments for me during our conversations and I started to understand the reasons for a lot of my attitudes to food. One of the biggest realisations was the detrimental effect that years of trying different diets had on my relationship with food – I wish I’d had Emma in my life many years ago, before my relationship with food had reached the stage it did. I’m so grateful for the positive impact Emma has made in my life. It may take a long time to fix my food issues totally, but I know I can always check back in with Emma for a ‘booster’ whenever I want/need to.” H.S., Surrey

“I’ve had issues around food for pretty much all my life. I’d binge eat then restrict myself and was always on a diet. Together with Emma, we explored reasons why and my attitude towards food. I realised I’d always categorised food into ‘good’ or ‘bad’ and the moment Emma suggested I relax this method and give myself permission to eat any food, something clicked in me. She was full of suggestions of ways to help me build my confidence and belief in myself to make this work including highlighting positive moments in my food diary to make them stand out – a game changer for me! Honestly this has been life changing, I feel so comfortable with my choices and feel like food no longer has a hold over me. No more bingeing and I’m losing weight without even feeling like I’m doing anything out of the ordinary! It’s also had a big impact on my mood and digestive issues making this even more worthwhile. I would definitely recommend Emma to all!” C.B., Haywards Heath, West Sussex (online sessions)

“Emma you’ve helped a great deal over the last 6+ months, encouraging me to observe my habits and triggers for unhelpful behaviours, to identify unhelpful patterns of thought and to question their validity; my tendency towards perfectionism (“progress not perfection” has stuck with me!!), my disease to please and concern for what others think of me, my harsh self-judgement. You’ve also helped me to realise my potential: self-determination, using insights to develop new habits, getting to know myself and trying out new practices without pressure to get everything right. I thought it worth the lengthy email, just to say thank you. I feel more in control of my life, which has had a positive impact on my eating – and the last few weeks have put this to the test- I can fall off the wagon but get back on again.” C.K., Worcestershire (online sessions)

“I’ve only been seeing Emma for a couple of months and am so pleased to have finally found an approach to help me beat my binge eating and be more mindful when eating. I don’t feel like I’m dieting, yet the pounds are starting to drop off! It’s amazing! Even during December! I’ve tried all the diets known to man, spending loads of money in the process and I can’t wait to see how much more progress will be made in 2020, not only with my weight but the way I view food and the control it has (or had!) over me.” C.W., Frimley, Surrey

Weight Loss Reviews“My mindful eating sessions with Emma have made a huge and lasting difference to how I feel about food and myself more generally. When I booked my first session I was feeling desperate. My struggle with food had been ongoing for as long as I could remember and while I had had success dieting in the past, the weight always piled back on plus some, making me feel like a failure. I wanted a way off the yoyo diet roundabout but couldn’t see a way out on my own. Mindful eating is not a quick fix but has helped me explore and understand my relationship with food and helped me understand how small but consistent changes can help me take control of my diet. Emma is very easy to open up to and never judgemental. She has been able to give me a different way to look at things and some useful suggestions to try out which over time have helped me to regain control of my diet or rather loosen the tight grip of control on my diet and end the endless struggle between ‘good’ eating and ‘bad’ eating. Mindful eating is a tool for life and not a quick fix diet. I am still a work in progress but I feel so much more positive about myself after my sessions with Emma and I feel like the weight that I have lost will stay off for the long term”. L.R., Hampshire
“I have really enjoyed working with Emma. She takes the time to really get to know me and she offers small (and often easy) adjustments to my daily habits to help me be more mindful of my eating and start to see food as a friend and not foe.  She is the perfect food relationship counsellor! Thank you!” M. Fargen, Surrey

“I had 4 sessions with Emma and she was great. Showed me a new way of eating and was very supportive and easy to talk to. I’ve lost 5kg since my first session with her, would highly recommend!” S. Carter, Dorset (online sessions)

“I have had the good fortune of using Emma’s services for the past 18 months, her advice and support is excellent. I have got
