WORD ON THE STREET
“I started working with Villy almost 2 years and am so grateful for her advice, knowledge and support. Leading a stressful busy lifestyle in London alongside being a mum started taking a toll on my health. I tried different practitioners, but none of them looked at my body and mind in such a holistic way and there was little to no follow up support.
Villy’s program transforms your life by offering practical advice on how small changes can have a big positive impact on your health. And unlike with a one-off consultation, you’re fully supported throughout, which makes all the difference.
I couldn’t be happier to have found my health mentor and highly recommend you see her sooner rather than later to enjoy a better quality of life.”Anna Tsankova
“Not only I feel great in my body physically, but I am feeling so much more like myself! Confusion and uncertainty have been replaced with knowing myself better and making better choices for myself daily.
Villy helped me really see and address the elephant in the room – my stress levels. As much as I had convinced myself that my eating habits needed the most improvement, I knew deep down that there was a deeper reason why I was eating what I was eating. I would have never been able to ‘go there’ on my own and accept fully that I was
I feel so much lighter and happier, almost like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders, and am enjoying life again in ways that just make me excited
I can’t recommend Villy’s coaching enough. Give yourself the gift of support, education and love to move forward in your life!Kate Johnson
“I was delighted when Villy offered to work with me. We’d met on a course and became friends and I was always impressed by her knowledge of all things nutrition and wellbeing, and her huge enthusiasm for both.
For me, reaching my late thirties brought with it a few health issues, including a low thyroid and endometriosis. Sadly, most mainstream doctors don’t yet recognise the diet and lifestyle factors that impact on these conditions, but I knew that I felt better when I ate well and worse when I didn’t.
A couple of years earlier, on a 2-week holiday in Sri Lanka eating local cuisine, I’d found that several of my symptoms disappeared without gluten, so I already avoided that, as well as caffeine which provoked insomnia and sore eyes. But when I met Villy I felt as if I needed to go a step further but didn’t know where to start. I also felt dragged down by my dietary restrictions and frustrated that I couldn’t shift my extra pounds no matter how many 10ks I ran or fitness classes I attended.
What I loved about Villy’s approach was how holistic it was – she seamlessly covers mind, body, spirit and lifestyle in a way that leaves you educated and empowered, but without feeling judged or pressured. There is an important overall structure to the programme, but Villy is happy to deviate in a session eg to answer any health questions that have arisen, or discuss a GP appointment you’ve had, or something that’s happened in your life that’s making things a struggle.
Too many practitioners in the natural health sphere are against any conventional treatments, Villy, on the other hand, will work with you to find the combination of approaches that work best for you. For example, I knew that embarking on a detox from the off would be a challenge for me with my very busy life; Villy was happy to lead me in baby steps, which I believe has been crucial in creating the lasting change that I’ve achieved. We did discuss vitamins and supplements and I now incorporate probiotics and probiotic foods
Villy doesn’t stint on the information she provides but it’s always clear, I never felt overwhelmed or blinded by science. She can talk about the complexities of the microbiome and thyroid health in a way that makes them feel
Another aspect that I think is unique to Villy is that she always remembered what we’d covered before. I think a lot of clinicians end up confusing clients or don’t spend the time to read their notes before a session, which leads to clients having to repeat themselves or feeling insignificant- I once went to an acupuncturist who would always forget my name! With Villy that was never the case, it was as if our last session was yesterday instead of last month.
The 6-month length was ideal for me because shifting really engrained habits and mindsets
We also did some lovely tune-in type meditations together which were not only a relaxing experience but also gave me more awareness of my limiting beliefs and greater confidence to take care of myself. One result of this is that I’m now much happier eating out and telling waiters what my dietary needs are, in a really positive way, instead of feeling powerless and having the inevitable flare-up the next day. Some of the books on
The results? Now I feel much happier in myself and with my body, my thyroid TPO antibodies have reduced by around 200, and I’ve ditched the running in favour of rebounding and dance, which never fail to give my endorphins a boost. Perhaps most importantly I no longer need my daily sugar fix, and the freedom from that has been amazing.
If you’re suffering niggly or even larger health issues, and you’re ready to take some of the responsibility for feeling better yourself, then working with Villy can make a huge difference and you won’t look back.”Kay Owen
