“As the mother of a twenty-year old young woman who has experienced a serious eating disorder, I am delighted to testify to the transformational effect that Zoe has had on my daughter.. A trusting and reassuring relationship being of the essence, both my daughter and I have derived growing confidence in Zoe’s calm, considered and totally professional approach to her work – and, moreover, to her willing accessibility when needed outside the formal consultation sessions. The holistic way which she has counselled us has been truly remarkable and contributed in a major way to my daughter’s growing confidence in managing her vulnerabilities especially whilst facing University challenges at this critical time in her life “

“I was introduced to Zoë through my therapist. As someone who’s had an Eating disorder most of my life, I was apprehensive as to the role of a dietician. However Zoë changed this. She’s tough but fair. Her attention to detail is outstanding and meant my Eating disorder had no chance. The fact I’ve only spoken to her through video chat hasn’t stopped her ability to read me, push me and challenge me. It would be an honour to work with Zoë until I can truly say Eating disorder?? What Eating disorder. My advice if you are reading this and scared of the first step… all you can do is start with a chat. Zoë isn’t someone to judge, has amazing spirit and I highly recommend her.”
“Zoë is the most incredible yoga teacher. She taught me how to practice mindfully, to listen to my body and to become more grounded. Zoë brings a special energy to her classes and is very professional. I wholeheartedly recommend her”
“Before I had sessions with Zoe I felt so lost in my eating disorder recovery, and now I feel so much more in charge of it. Zoe encourages me to push myself and set goals and challenges, whilst also being respectful of what I’m currently finding difficult. It’s been so convenient for me to be able to Skype Zoe from my home, and am so grafteful that I am able to send Zoe any questions I have by email in between our sessions. I’d highly recommend Zoe to anyone who needs professional and friendly dietetic advice.”
“Zoe is a kind, caring, and very knowledgeable specialist dietician who has given both myself and my family the most incredible help and support this past year whilst suffering with an eating disorder. She has helped me through a personal journey to recovery and thanks to her, my relationship with food and my body continues to improve every day. Zoe always has time for you and listens to your concerns, nothing is ever too much trouble. I cannot recommend her highly enough”
