“I started 2018 feeling pretty low and at odds with my entire body. I was constantly tired, bloated, had stomach ache and brain fog. To top it off I felt extremely frustrated and anxious because I tried so hard to eat well, get plenty of sleep and I loved exercise. So why did I feel so awful? But then I got put in touch with Lara and from the moment we met I knew it would all work out ok. The relief I felt at talking through every detail of how I was feeling and have someone not only fully understand but also completely support me was unbelievable. Lara has the kindest heart and I knew there was never a single ounce of judgement. She made me realise that it was ok to be feeling the way I did.

Lara has been totally open since day one about the process we would go through, the way she works and what I should expect. She always explains what is happening in my body or with treatment in a way that makes sense to me and ensures I’m happy with all decisions. I have complete faith and trust not only in her technical skills but also in her genuine care for her clients. I wasn’t prepared for the emotional side of what I was going through. But, of course, Lara was with me every step of the way: talking through how I was feeling; where I was struggling; and how to be at peace with myself. These weren’t just short-term coping mechanisms, they were tools for a happy and healthy life. It is always about the bigger picture.

Lara has taught me so much about both my mind and my body and how they work together. I now feel so in tune with my body and can better understand what it needs at different times. My self-confidence, which had taken a dive, has massively increased. I feel more comfortable in my own skin, which is so liberating!

The difference in how I feel now compared to 12 months ago is astounding. I knew that this would be a long journey, with ups and downs, and there is still some way to go, but there is no one I would rather have supporting me through it. I am so thankful every day that I have Lara – I honestly don’t know where I would be without her.”

“Lara’s influence on my health journey thus far has been pivotal. Her gentle and (w)holistic approach to the mind, body and spirit has enriched and deepened my life. There is only immense gratitude. The depth of understanding she has of the intricate energy balances in the body is awe-inspiring and I have gained so much wisdom in the process.

For three years prior, hormonal imbalances manifesting as PCOS and low thyroid function as well as chronic gut-health issues (IBS, SIBO) had been the framework of my well-being. I had sought support by medical professionals in the respected fields of psychology, general practice and gynecology but no one could piece the clues together; I spiraled into fear, fatigue, anxiety and depression. Lara’s nutritional, emotional and spiritual guidance truly lifted me from a place of complete disempowerment and overwhelm to a place where I could finally breathe easy into the still space that vibrant health creates.

From an energetic perspective, I no longer experience bouts of unexplained fatigue, brain fog and low moods. My digestion has stabilized into a strong rhythm, allowing me to thrive on a diverse diet. My period is also returning into a more frequent rhythm of its own.

Profoundly, Lara also helped me to change the relationship I had with my body; I transitioned from being defined by syndromes and medical definitions to integrating these experiences into who I am. Instead of resenting what was going on, I learnt how to use them as a great teacher.

She guided me in tuning in, listening closely to the language my body was speaking, and how to best create an internal and external environment for the body to heal.

If you have been feeling unheard, confused and overwhelmed by your body I could not recommend Lara highly enough. She is a healing force, a deep listener and peaceful warrior who will guide you in how to tap into the immense wisdom your body holds.”

“Before I met Lara, I was binging on nutrition podcasts and self-prescribing supplements in attempt to tackle post-pill break outs, mood swings and debilitating period cramps. I suspected I had a hormonal imbalance after coming off the pill and had recently been diagnosed with a uterine fibroid, for which surgery was recommended. I was in over my head.

Lara was exactly the person I needed. She’s kind and free of judgement, and has the experience and science to back up her interventions. She objectively tracked my symptoms, provided a thoughtful protocol incorporating supplements and lifestyle adjustments, guided hormone testing, and all the while kept a whole-person perspective. Lara was able to move the needle in a way I wasn’t able to on my own — I started seeing tangible results.

My skin is now clear and my period cramps and intense mood swings are a distant memory. I have more confidence with my clear skin and am no longer afraid to leave the house without a bottle of painkillers the week of my period. Lara thoroughly and thoughtfully explained hormone test results in a way that felt empowering and maintained such a positive mindset. It’s been so comforting to know someone I completely trust is looking out for not only my physical but also emotional well-being.”

“Lara is so great, I don’t know where to start. I got in touch with her after months of bouncing from doctor to doctor who were never able to provide me with any form of diagnosis for my digestive issues. During our first session, Lara listened to my situation, pieced everything together and was able to explain the likely reasons for my issues. After years of struggling with invasive procedures that showed “nothing was wrong with me”, medications that wouldn’t work, and diets that I would put myself on, my first session with Lara was the only thing that made me feel like my digestive health could be normal one day.

After working together for just over a year, I can happily say that my digestive health has significantly improved in ways that I didn’t think were possible. Lara has also helped me with my painful & heavy periods, which have been considerably less painful & lighter than what they used to be. But most importantly, meeting Lara has been one of the greatest gifts I could’ve ever given myself because it has led me on a path of self-love and self-care. Lara helped me realise just how much my psychological state was impacting my physical health, and provided me with every resource possible to support myself through what I was experiencing. More than that, Lara was always there to listen to me, always reminding me to approach myself with gentleness & compassion, while taking the necessary action to get where I wanted to be going.

I can honestly say that I would’ve been a completely different person right now had I not met Lara, both physically and emotionally. I am so grateful for working with her and the profound benefit it’s had on my overall well-being.”

“I started working with Lara in January just after I had been diagnosed with Endometriosis. I didn’t know much about it but all I knew was that nutrition plays a big role. Lara was recommended to me by a dear friend so I knew I was in great hands. My main concerns were to address the acute symptoms, upcoming surgery and fertility.

Lara helped me understand how my body works, what Endometriosis does to my body and how I can support my body with the correct nutrition and supplements. She supported me in every shape or form possible. She prepared me mentally and physically for surgery and post surgery. I had no doubt about working with her at all, we clicked right from the start and her deep knowledge about the female body and hormones impressed me on a weekly basis.

Thanks to working with Lara I’ve also become more connected to my body on a deeper level and it is also very much thanks to all her hard work that now 9 months after beginning on my journey with her that I’m pregnant and I couldn’t think of anyone better to embark on this next journey with!”

“I sought a consultation with Lara to deal with my recent diagnosis of endometriosis. I found Lara’s advice very helpful and also very practical. She took the time to understand the realities and demands of my life and schedule, and identified ways in which I could work within that to make the necessary adjustments to my lifestyle and diet. She also developed an excellent supplement protocol for me.

After a time of working with Lara, my gynaecologist did a scan which indicated that my ovarian cyst had shrunk by nearly half – I believe that making these lifestyle changes + starting the supplements, as per Lara’s advice, have been what’s made the difference. I’ve also lost weight and my jawline acne has cleared up considerably. Thanks so much for doing what you do – it’s made a huge difference to my life and well being!”

“When I first met up with Lara she immediately made me feel supported and less hopeless. Through working together with her, my gut has healed enormously and I’m so relieved to be dealing with WAY less bloating, dermatitis, food-guilt and anxiety. I also feel more informed and empowered to make my own decisions about food and health, even if they’re not always the ‘perfect’ decisions.

Lara provides substantial and thorough support – she’s approachable, relatable and effective. She’s also loving and funny and cheeky and smart – she’s a breath of fresh air. Even though finances can be a concern, working with Lara to optimise your health is the most generous, loving thing you can do for yourself – because it’s a gift to yourself for life.”

“I have suffered with chronic digestive issues for over a decade: I have a history of poor nutrition as a child coupled with a teenage eating disorder- not a match made in heaven for the gut. I tried countless methods to improve my symptoms and even sought the help of a nutritionist when I was 19. Results were always temporary.

I found Lara after being recommended her by my friend – I was immediately impressed by her balanced approach between practicing both western and more eastern methods in her protocols- i.e. She focuses on not only curing your issues (as per the western medicine approach) but also at what is causing it in the first place. She helped me learn so much about my own body.

My chronic digestive issues + heavy periods have steadily gotten better month after month of working with her. She is also such a lovely woman and she works endlessly: checking up on your progress and making amendments to your program to make sure you get the best results possible. I can’t recommend her enough!”

“I have really loved working with Lara! She feels like a friend straightaway, which is so helpful when you’re sharing such intimate details about yourself.

Lara has been so knowledgeable and I love using food + lifestyle changes to tackle my digestive + hormonal issues – they are approaches that have really opened my eyes to the world of nutrition + wellness, which has changed my life forever. Thank you!

Lara is great at keeping in touch, checking-in, adapting to any issues quickly, answering any questions I may have and also keeping me accountable, which I really appreciated.”

mala s testimonial

“I have spent the majority of my life struggling with weight fluctuations and disordered eating. I had tried every single diet and way of eating there was to try. Sick of cabbage soup, maple syrup and eating enough meat to challenge a Lion, coupled with being both mentally and physically exhausted, I sought out Lara.

She welcomed my broken and damaged body, with no judgement and a warmth that immediately put me at ease. She was understanding and enlightening, informative and compassionate. Lara is undeniably amazing at what she does! She has a balance of loving, genuine care and kindness inter spliced with challenging and pushing you towards your goals. She is innovative and very up to date, often seeking out new approaches and tailoring them to your individual needs.

Having been round the NHS system of nutritionists and dieticians, Lara is in a league of her own. I trust her 100% with my wellbeing and would encourage anyone to do the same. She’s not only dedicated to achieving wellness for both your body and mind but massively encouraging and hilarious too!”

“My experience working with Lara has been so interesting, informative and helpful right from the beginning. I was given excellent practical advice, a useful list of resources and so much support it was easy to implement, and continue to live a healthier lifestyle.

After a lifetime of pain and frustration, I feel like there is finally a light at the end of my tunnel of digestive issues and all its associated health concerns. I recommend Lara to friends and family whenever I have the opportunity!

“I came to Lara broken, very nearly hopeless and terrified. My body was screaming at me with symptoms I had long since learned to ignore. This has been a 15-year long journey through health hell with symptoms spanning systematically throughout my body. I had diagnoses of autoimmune thyroiditis, fibromyalgia, undifferentiated connective tissue disease, recurring shingles and suspected coeliac.

Things I got used to hearing… ‘within the normal range’ ‘highly unlikely’ ‘that’s not possible’ ‘we’ll up your dosage to…’. In fact, I went to one immunologist and asked if my symptoms could be down to food, only to be told no – a balanced diet is all you need… what constitutes a balanced diet?!?! No one was listening to the symptoms my body was trying its best to tell everyone. It was a very dark time for me and fighting through it trying to get someone to listen was starting to feel impossible. Like I was making it up. Like it was all in my head. Like what I actually needed was psychological help. Or that it was time to give up.

And then I found Lara.

From day 1 I knew this was different. Not only did she want to go through my entire history – asking questions that no one ever had before – but I felt completely supported and able to reveal the extent of what had happened to me. I trusted her immediately. Her knowledge base is vast and her approach to nutrition and holistic healing not only makes an outrageous amount of logical sense, but she gives you the control to get your life back. At no point did I feel like I had to convince her of my symptoms. For the first time ever, I felt like I was working with someone, rather than against them.

My health deteriorated in an extremely terrifying way at the time. I started developing reactions to thyroxine – something I had been on for years but was far too scared to stop taking the drug. Once again, I was crippled by an illness that doesn’t appear on blood tests. Lara was incredible throughout this time. I heard from her regularly and she convinced me to get signed off work to try and give my body a break – something I wasn’t even aware I could do! Looking back, I don’t think I would have got through it without her. She constantly had my back and helped me find a more functionally minded endocrinologist which has actually led to a potentially life changing diagnosis. It looks like my monsters under the bed have actually been PoTS and mast cell activation disorder. I’ve since come off levothyroxine – it was a rare reaction to the medication and as it transpired, I didn’t need it anyway. I only take 2 pills a day now… this time last year I was on 20.

Seeing Lara sparked a chain of events that may well have saved, and at the very least extended, my life. My quality of life since starting our journey has improved astronomically. I was stumbling around in the dark, without a clue on how to help myself heal. With her encouragement and positivity, she has helped me find some desperately needed answers and direction in how to help me heal. Beyond the physical, I think the biggest and most important part of the process for me was how Lara helped changed the way I perceived myself. Before working with her I hated my body. I despised it for failing me and not allowing me to live a normal life, for not allowing me to live any sort of life. I hated my symptoms and had so much anger and disgust towards myself and blamed my body for not being able to do the things other people found so desperately easy. Lara has this light, this pure energy that she is generous and kind enough to share. She taught me to look at my body not as something that was fighting me, but like my symptoms were just its way of letting everyone know that there was something wrong. That we needed to listen when this happened and then we might be able to work out how to help it get better. The impact of this in itself has been enormous. For the first time in my life I don’t hate myself for not being able to keep up, or physically move. I’m not disgusted when I swell up because I’ve started reacting to a new food. And I’m so sorry for all those years of anger and angst.

With Lara, I learnt to work with my body and to stop fighting against it. Every part of my journey with Lara has been healing – of mind, body and soul – and I have infinite respect for her knowledge, her process and her experience.”

Katie, London

“Since working with Lara, I now have a greater understanding of how to manage my gut, improved digestive issues, eczema + psoriasis almost completely resolved, body fat come down by 5% in 6 months, weight loss, centimetres lost, more energy, more stable moods, reduced post nasal drip and actual periods.

I have learned lifelong lessons in nutrition + bodily functions through working with Lara. She has an extremely supportive nature and didn’t put too much pressure on me too soon. I recommended working with Lara to all my friends, family, colleagues + people I meet out and about because you CAN address the symptoms that are making you feel unwell rather than settling for the belief that ‘it’s just the way you are’.”

Leila, London

“Lara is very thorough in her approach and has definitely helped me reduce stomach sensitivity and identify my main triggers. Overall very knowledgeable and Lara takes the time to explain things in depth. She’s very friendly and easy to work with.”

Helen, London

“I reached out to Lara at a particularly low point in my life. As a bit of a perfectionist I had been putting a lot of pressure on myself professionally and was feeling exhausted, stressed and burned out from working long hours. This had resulted in a number of digestive and hormonal issues – namely I had unintentionally lost almost a stone in weight and was suffering with constant stress-related gut issues which only made matters worse with regards to continuous weight loss. I had also previously been diagnosed with cysts on my ovaries and possible PCOS (despite being of a very slim build) and was dealing with dull skin and constant acne breakouts, hair loss and my periods had gone from being erratic to stopping all together. All in all I was not in a great place and was really reaching a breaking point.

Lara was exactly the kind of person I needed to work with. She treated me with kindness and a complete lack of judgement. I felt fully supported throughout the process and that she genuinely cared about my wellbeing. I was initially worried about making some of the dietary changes she suggested because I was adamant that I didn’t want to lose any more weight and wanted to put back on what I had lost as quickly as possible. However Lara explained to me very clearly why we were making the changes we were and what the benefits of doing so would be. She provided me with nutrient-rich meal plans as well as recommendations for supplements which would support me both digestively and hormonally. It wasn’t an immediate fix but over time I started to see steady improvements after following her recommendations — my digestive problems have now improved enormously and after a few months my periods came back and have been less painful and more regular than they had been previously. I’ve also managed to put back on the weight I had lost and am feeling a lot healthier overall.

Lara really does go above and beyond what I would have expected from working with a dietitian. She keeps in regular contact throughout the process, reviewing your progress and making recommendations as you go. She treats you like a friend and also helped support me with stress management and insomnia by connecting me with specialists who could help in these areas, as well as being a constant pillar of support during the low points herself. I would absolutely recommend Lara to anyone who is having similar problems to what I experienced, for me it has been completely worth the money and I feel so much better now than I did 6 months ago!”
