Testimonials from In Spa Retreats – I will always remember Emma’s smile. She had a no nonsense approach to food and understood the reality of trying to eat healthily.
– Just excellent!
– Great advice, good person to be around for the week, relaxing easy company.
– I enjoyed my session with Emma. She took the time to get to know me and my fertility issues and sent me a lot of information to read up on post the retreat to incorporate into my daily life. Some of her views on dairy and gluten, etc. were pretty extreme and would be hard for me to stick to realistically but she had a lot of good ideas on how to slowly incorporate better food choices and improve my diet over time. – As well as working incredibly hard in her nutritionist one to one sessions Emma is always available to answer the endless nutrition and diet questions which the week encourages. I’m a huge fan of Emma’s approach to nutrition and her research and up to date information is fascinating. We are constantly bombarded with ever changing nutritional information by the media ,government and health authorities becoming more confused as each year passes. Emma has really helped me break through the challenges of dietary knowledge and I can’t praise her highly enough . A lovely lady through and through .

Thank you very much feeling really great. Steve of Crawley, December 2015
Our relationship with Emma and her therapy has been to assess and prescribe my partner a nutritional diet and supplements to assist her in her healing journey. She has also helped me throughout my pregnancy, birth recovery and breast feeding. We have been greatly educated and empowered to implement these changes and obtain the supplements by Emma. Emma always has such a no-nosense, practical yet positive attitude which lifts our spirits. I especially am grateful to Emma for the many questions and guidance I have asked for, she always answers my emails and texts and that is something I very much value, this has giving me the tools to manage the dietary changes more seamlessly and confidence to explore and experiment with our own ideas. It is so great to have Emma on our team. Mandy and Delaney of Brighton, July 2015
I went to Emma about the Metabolic Balance programme roughly six months before my wedding. Having variously been on the Atkins and Dukan diets (among a number of others) to varying but never long-lasting degrees of success, I was after a solution that was tailored-made for my body and my metabolism. I am so pleased that I called Emma – she was brilliant from start to finish, providing not only all the practical and scientific information and support I needed, but also the moral and emotional support that goes with starting such a life-changing programme. She was never less than understanding and warm, and her gentle guidance made the whole process (over which I lost 3.5 stones) not only effective, but exciting and enjoyable.’ Nancy of Lewes.

“Over the years I have been to countless therapists with my migraines, fatigue and IBS – all to no avail. Then, at last, I was fortunate enough to find Emma who was able to rapidly diagnose the root cause of my problem. Her knowledge is absolutely vast and only matched by the enormous passion she has for her subject and for helping people. In Emma’s expert hands, my health has been completely turned around, and I have learnt so much along the way. I cannot recommend her highly enough.” Adrian of Haywards Heath. October 2014
“I came to see Emma with a few dietary and hormonal issues that I was unsure how to work through. After seeing the doctor numerous times and not getting anywhere, Emma was a refreshing change, easy to talk to, with ideas about what was going on that seemed to make lots of sense. In particularly regarding diet and how it all links in to everything else going on in the body. I made a few dietary adjustments and started on some supplements, I felt healthier and had more energy after quite a short time and after about six weeks my period returned after about a year without. I would fully recommend seeing Emma.”
Jayne, London, 2014 “I came to Emma suffering with awful migraines, but with long working days and little time to think (or really care) about what I was eating, food had to be quick and easy. Since my first consultation with Emma my diet has totally changed. Now I know what to buy, where to buy it and how to create delicious nutritious food in an instant. Plus to to top it off my migraines have completely disappeared.”
Joanne of Cuckfield. Feb 2013 “I consulted Emma Olliff for nutrition advice on behalf of my daughter, who had been diagnosed with gastritis, and given prescription drugs to help her symptoms. What the doctors didn’t deal with, and couldn’t really shed any light on was the cause of the problem and how to address Isobel’s diet once she completed the course of drugs. I met with Emma Olliff just as Isobel started taking the prescription drugs. Emma was really knowledgeable about Isobel’s complaint, and as a mother herself, understood my anxieties.
She came up with a really clear and manageable course of action, which included a change of diet and the inclusion of supplements and probiotics. Everything Emma suggested was within the bounds of reality with regard to a nine year olds diet. She sent through recipes for yummy foods and treats which meant that although we cut wheat out of our diet, it didn’t feel like Isobel was missing out on any favourite foods.
Emma also suggested some very clever ways of getting probiotics into a child and had even tried and tested fish oil syrups to find out the most palatable for a little girl. Isobel is now completely better, and eats happily and healthily. We have made changes to our diet as a family, under Emma’s guidance, which have quite literally changed Isobel’s life. Emma offers a really great combination of expertise and empathy and I can strongly recommend her services. She has a lovely way with both children and adults and has a thorough and caring approach.”
Julia Jeyes, mum to Isobel aged 9 “I was contacted by friend who thought it may be beneficial for my daughter to see Emma. My daughter had recently changed schools, following a prolonged period struggling academically, and then subsequently assessed as dyslexic. Her confidence was rock bottom and always feeling under the weather and as a result she was very anxious. She was not sleeping, a very upset tummy and dense patches of eczema appeared.
Emma advised a holistic approach to this by looking at my daughter’s diet, which on the whole was good, so just a few subtle changes and the introduction of food supplements that are easily administered as drops in drinks or food, so my little detective was totally oblivious! Soaking in oat baths were fantastic, I’ve even had the odd one, it does wonders for the skin! Emma’s approach with my daughter was fantastic, very personal and pitched at the right level i.e. child centred but equally Emma didn’t alienate me or stereotype me as a neurotic parent. My daughter has settled at school, sleeps like a dream and her skin looks great apart from the bruises on her shins following her signing up for numerous sports at school!” Careen Green, mum to Ella aged 10 “After being diagnosed with an under active thyroid in 2005, I had resigned myself to the fact that, apart from taking the recommended dose of daily thyroxine that I would have to just put up with all of the irritating things that came with trying to keep if perfectly balanced. By that I mean mood swings, weight gain, sluggishness etc. I went to see Emma and I was rather sceptical. However after one or two sessions with Emma and some very simple tweaks to my diet and lifestyle, I must say that the difference it has made to my quality of life has been hugely significant. I would recommend this wholeheartedly to anyone in a similar position.”
Jo Lloyd of Hove, 2013 “Emma has advised on nutritional supplements and diet on several occasions and her advice is always extremely well researched and based upon an understanding of my lifestyle and circumstances. Emma always keeps abreast of new developments within her area of expertise and continues to explore a range of solutions to a wide range of conditions. I came to Emma experiencing painful knees. Emma suggested reducing a couple of items from my diet that was inflammatory. After just a few weeks, I noticed a significant reduction in the pain, and my knees are continuing to improve. I would not hesitate in recommending Emma as a nutritional consultant.” Dr Jacqui Thomas of Hove, 2012
I was training for two marathons and trying to cope with two part-time jobs and bringing up a young family, I knew nutrition was paramount but I was swamped with information and incapacitated by lack of time. It was so helpful to see Emma to give me some individual, evidence-based help. She was extremely professional but also showed great empathy. I was so impressed that it is such an holistic approach, taking into account lifestyle issues (ie that I cant cook, my time constraints etc.).
The marathons went well, but the thing that has delighted me the most is that since consulting Emma, despite having almost monthly cold sores I have barely had one since.
And every day I repeat the mantra I learnt from her ‘If it’s white, don’t bite!’ Jo Phillamore of Hove, 2012
