Stephane Delourme (head chef at Rick Steins) and Peter McGahan from the Celtic Seven marathon challenge running seven celtic marathons for children’s charities

personPutting the miles in for training in the cold and dark, and endless physio and running for our charitable cause can come to nothing if you are 5% dehydrated, your glycogen levels deplete, or the dreaded hunger kicks in, which in turn can destroy your confidence and finish you.

Helen has been fantastic in ensuring we are in 100% condition to run our very best for each marathon.

She inspires confidence we trust her and all we have to do is follow the plan. And….she’s really nice”

Keble College

personAs Welfare Officer for Keble College Middle Common Room, I had some concerns about the eating habits of students, especially during exam time, when it’s really important to maintain consistent energy levels. Helen kindly came into the college and presented information to cater to a range of understanding, and gave some effortless rules of thumb for making planning healthy meals simple. The Q&A session was invaluable – she was incredibly generous with her time and really has a wealth of knowledge. I like to think I’m relatively clued up on nutrition, but I was really surprised by how much I learned, and I know many people in the MCR have definitely changed their eating habits of a result of Helen’s talk. Really highly recommended, we’re already looking into getting her back next year. ”

Racing Driver

HelenThe reason this client came to me was for weight loss. However he is a professional racing driver so as well as weight loss I suggested that we worked on creating sustained energy levels, improved concentration and good stress response.

person“As a racing driver, you need to be fit physically and mentally. I had always had a problem as a young teenager in that I was overweight, not by a lot but enough to affect my performance and more importantly the image I projected to others. I had regularly exercised; in most weeks 5 to 6 times a week, but I saw no change. This was when I asked myself: is what I am putting in my body correct? Eventually with some searching I was fortunate enough to discover Helen Money. We had a consultation to begin with where I sat down and told Ms. Money what I wanted to achieve and when I wanted to achieve it. My weight did not drop off over night, it took 2 weeks before I started seeing change. However, when it started I was losing up to 1kg a week with regular exercise.

Helen has always been very supportive and when situations made me eat badly, she managed to find a way around it. With racing, my schedule can change on any day and Helen has also been very flexible in our appointments. With Helen Money’s help, I feel better as a person. No longer do I ever feel lethargic, I am always well recovered after the workouts ready for another training session the next day and most importantly Helen Money has helped me to my first career win. It’s what you put in your body that counts!”


HelenThis client came to me as she wanted to ensure she was consuming all the essential vitamins and minerals needed whilst following a vegan diet.

person“Before coming to see Helen I had never been to a nutritionist but thought that, being a vegan, it might be worthwhile. I was not wrong! Seeing Helen has completely changed the way I look at food and has helped give me more energy and has eased the headaches I used to suffer from regularly. I was astounded at the level of knowledge and complexity and was shocked at how low my mineral levels were. Helen recommended simple changes to my diet to ensure I got all the necessary levels of minerals on my restricted vegan diet, and if there was a food I didn’t like, she would find a way around it. This has made implementing the changes to my diet so easy and manageable. I am incredibly grateful that I came to see Helen and would not be feeling so perky now if I had not!”

Dieting Duo

HelenThis couple were bought a gift voucher by their children for a course of consultations with diet analysis.

person“We both wanted to lose weight and feel fitter, and Helen’s sympathetic approach suited us from the start. Keeping a food diary for a few days really helped to identify where we were going wrong. Helen worked out a positive manageable plan, importantly taking into account our lifestyles and preferences. As well as being designed to aid weight loss, we were delighted that the plan highlighted where we could be choosing more nutritional alternatives.
After each visit to Helen, we came away feeling happy, motivated and encouraged. The emphasis was always on how to make healthy food tasty, interesting and satisfying, so that we looked forward to our meals. Our whole family enjoyed the recipes that Helen provided.
We are thrilled with our weight loss and feel so much fitter – between us we have lost about 4½ stone!


HelenThis client came to me with specific goals of wanting to lose weight, improve her energy levels and to look great for her 40th birthday. She is a busy working mum. She enjoys socialising; much of her socialising is based around sharing food with friends.

person“I went to Helen to lose weight and improve my energy levels, and general condition (for my 40th birthday and beyond!!). I thought I knew about nutrition and diets as I’ve always eaten pretty well and cooked from fresh. However, Helen asked me to keep a food diary for a week, (an honest one!) and then analysed it. She then produced a really readable (and interesting!) report on my nutritional intake and my habits. Having my diet and eating patterns analysed by Helen in fact showed my that I wasn’t getting enough nutrients from my food, especially when trying to lose weight, and showed me that I had a pattern of eating really well then ‘rewarding’ myself with a few days of eating what I liked. It showed that when I reduced calories, I also reduced my energy levels and then I would eat to make up for it!

Helen’s report was detailed and it really highlighted that I wasn’t getting enough minerals, which I genuinely found surprising. Helen suggested swapping and including certain foods, to build up my iron intake and to get more minerals in general into my diet. Also, she thought about adding some really easy snacks during the day to keep me energised and to get the total complex of nutrients.

I have to say I thought her approach was really fresh. Helen was really good at listening to what I’m like as an individual and so I genuinely found it straightforward to lose weight. Helen comes from the approach that we like to eat, and so her plan included dealing with real life situations – such as entertaining, late nights etc.., so, it made sense for me as a person rather than an idealised version of me with lots of willpower and spare time. I really like Helen’s approach, it’s very tailored, positive, scientific and it’s very doable – for anyone! I wanted to lose weight and improve my general energy levels and hair, skin and nails (it was my 40th!).

Since I have been able to take more care of what I eat – because I know what to do now. I feel far less moody, I feel more in control, I have lost weight (8lbs and I’m going to keep going), my hair has improved (my scalp is no longer dry and itchy!) and I do feel better, and, without denying myself. I’m really glad I did this, it’s given me the right kind of support to lose weight and also gives me more of an idea of what to eat to keep healthy.”


HelenThis client came to me for advice on healthy eating for the whole family

person‘’The specific advice about what foods to introduce was a great help. The children love quinoa and edemame and we have made a big effort, mostly successful to introduce more eggs and oily fish into their diets”
