logoOne to One Support

The people who seek my support and guidance work so hard to achieve their goals, and to make the dietary changes I suggest.  It therefore never feels natural for me to steal their success, and take the credit.

Please allow me to share some of the complements I receive so generously from those it has been my privilege to help:

Mandy, group weight loss support, Hartlepool, March 2015

Dear Dawn, a big thank you for all of your help with the ‘diet’.  I will try and keep up the good work.

LR, newly diagnosed diabetes patient, Skype, abroad, March 2015

Sensitive and empathetic care with Dietwise

The Dietwise consultation was so flexible and so easy – lots of reassurance across the miles
just when I needed it most and felt so isolated. 

KW, irritable bowel patient, Skype February 2015

Life changing.  I have never felt so much in control – and pain free!  Thank you so much.

JD, Weight loss surgery patient Middlesbrough, Sept 2014

‘Dawn I spoke with you the other day, and this is just an email to say thank you so much –  I am  back on track with my food choices and have lost 4lb.  I am starting to read the book you mentioned to me.  Thank you so much again’

‘I wouldn’t change anything about this course – it is exactly what we all needed’

‘Dawn, thank you so much for your support and help over the past 12 weeks.  I have learnt so much and now feel my (bariatric) journey is complete.  In the past 6 weeks I have tried so much to put everything into practice and it has worked!’

 SD, Weight loss client, June, 2014

‘Dawn isn’t like anyone else who has advised me on diet – she seems to really understand and listen.  Not judge.  Thank you.’

presentation expert

 

 I am always pleased to be invited to work alongside organisations which value the professional skills and knowledge of a registered dietitian. Below I have listed some of the organisations I am and have been proud to support with  specialist dietary advice and support that is timely and valued.  

 

 

Hartlepool and District Hospice, January 2015 – ongoing Hospice logo_trans

Voluntary ambassador for weight loss and cancer prevention.  Provision of a weekly 10 week programme to support those wishing to lose weight for their local charity.  Monthly drop in sessions and annual launches are now planned.

Janice Forbes writes:

We’re pleased to announce that the project has raised over £500 for Hospice care and can’t thank Dawn enough for her expertise and professionalism.

The class was a great success and Dawn really gave the members a warm and personal service, discussing diet and weight loss tips and helping all who took part in losing weight and changing their diet and eating habits.

I personally lost almost a stone in this time with Dawn’s support and I continue to follow her plan for a healthier future.

I’d have no hesitation in recommending Dawn to anyone who seeks to improve their health and lifestyle.
