Digestive Problems



Having any kind of digestive disorder can be very unsettling and have a big impact on your health and quality of life. Sophie has expert knowledge and skills in managing bowel problems, having specialised in this area for many years. As a dietitian Sophie is able to assess, diagnose and treat diet related digestive problems and helps many patients with a range of digestive problems including:


Irritable Bowel syndrome (IBS) - through reduction in fermentable carbohydrates (the low FODMAP diet)


Diverticular Disease - help reduce inflammation and maintain remission through your diet


Food intolerance - if you suspect you have a food intolerance/allergy Sophie can help you to pinpoint the foods that are upsetting you and eliminate them from your diet


Improvement in colostomy/ileostomy (stoma) function - Sophie is a leading UK dietitian in dietary management of colostomies and ileostomies.



About Your Appointment


Your initial appointment will be booked for 60 minutes and will include a full assessment of your diet, health and symptoms.


Based on this assessment you will be provided with tailored advice and supporting literature and your diet may be analysed with software. You will be offered ongoing support between consultations via e-mail, text or phone if needed and follow up appointments will be booked for 45 minutes.


As a record of your consultation Sophie will write you a letter detailing your appointment and the plans that have been made. This can be shared with your GP, consultant or other healthcare professionals at your discretion.
