For a better relationship with food, for life.

The Anchor Programme

I’ve worked in the field of weight management for nearly 20 years and in this time, our understanding of this complex condition has completely revolutionised. If you have struggled with your weight for many years, you may feel confused and frustrated as to which way to go from here?

If you have been on countless diets, it is true to say traditional methods to support you to restrict your calories don’t work and we owe it to both your physical and mental health, to approach things differently and to move you away from the ‘diet industry’ which is not only unhelpful, but damaging to your health and well-being too.

You may feel stuck; information is conflicting, and perhaps you’ve lost confidence in the food decisions you are making. You may feel trapped between different diets and feel your relationship with food is quite a negative one, and yet you think about food all the time?

Is the Anchor Programme for you?

  • Have you been continually dieting to achieve weight loss without success or with weight regain?
  • Is your head full and are you lacking clarity or structure on what to do?
  • Would you like a fresh approach to help you think about food in a completely different way?


Why the ‘Anchor’?

This programme enables you to develop a new relationship with food, so that it no longer feels like the enemy. It enables you to feel confidence and a renewed sense of self with a different approach and a new set of principles to ‘anchor’ you. Peace and structure around food, that is both psychologically and clinically more helpful. We shift the focus away from weight loss being the measure by which you either succeed or fail. It does not encourage reliance on willpower and is not a quick fix. We move you away from yo-yo dieting by combining:

  • Credible nutrition information and practical advice, with a focus on what healthy looks like to nourish your body, not restriction and deprivation.
  • Behavioural therapy to support a shift in your thought patterns and concrete beliefs.
  • Habit science tips – because whether we like it or not, we don’t think as much as we think we do 🙂

Making it work for you

The Anchor Programme supports you on a one to one basis with flexibility to work around your schedule, and all it can be done virtually.

Laura is an exceptional dietitian and valued colleague. Her clinical expertise and practical and down to earth attitude consistently enables her clients to make long term health behaviour changes that they can maintain for life.

The Anchor Programme – Starter Package

The Discovery call

Let’s explore for 20 mins free of charge so you can ask anything you want and to ensure we’re the right fit for each other.

Session 1: The Road Map

Sessions start with getting visual. What are all the factors that relate to your eating habits and your health and well-being? Often there’s conflict between the practical challenges and the thoughts going around in our heads – where should you start, what is going to make the biggest impact. Let’s explore, clear your head and get you going.

Session 2: Food, Head and Habits Part 1

We explore your own unique circumstances, journey so far and the factors that have influenced your weight and thoughts about food. We consider the interplay between your food choices and your attitude and beliefs around food.

We work together on normalising eating behaviours by addressing the root cause of these food habits. Our aim is to explore a deeper understanding of how you and food fit together and then build your confidence in your nutritional needs, hunger, fullness, appetite and pleasure in food.

Taking this approach and moving away from weight being the point from which we determine our success or failure, paths the way for a better relationship with food, for life. Imagine if it didn’t always take up all the space in your head that it does at the moment, how great would that be? You will find that what weight your body is naturally meant to be, will then take care of itself.

I know it sounds a bit heavy going but a current client of mine had this to say,

“I love Laura’s genuine, no nonsense, friendly approach to helping people. She is really helping me on my journey to feel happier and healthier around food”.

Session 3: Food, Head and Habits Part 2

Well, you may have needed a tissue or two for session 2 (and to be honest, so might I), as we the connections between the thoughts in your head, your habits and your food choices start to make more sense than they have done before. Session 3 allows us the opportunity to reflect on where you’ve got to so far, and continue to work on building your confidence and new approach to eating.

What Others Have To Say

Laura has helped me break the conditioning done by a life of yoyo dieting and trying to control my PCOS symptoms myself. I now understand how food fuels my body and the effects on my insulin. Laura is very approachable, knows her stuff and is non- judgemental. I recommend Laura to anyone who wants a plan to live by for life

Through her gentle questioning and probing, Laura very effectively challenged me on my eating habits and helped me to re-frame my views on nutrition and weight management. She gave very useful and practical tips on how to make changes that worked for me and fitted into my family life. Laura’s support outside the sessions was a great help and kept me on track

My attitude towards food has significantly changed, I’m able to make healthier food choices and my natural response to resort to food when I’m stressed is also more under control

Before meeting Laura, I was making bad choices with food. I was a serial dieter – and I was really bad at it. Laura really changed my outlook on every aspect of nutrition.

Working with Laura has been a pleasure. Not only has she given me the practical tools to help me with my weight loss, but she has also helped me tackle the emotional attachment that I have felt towards food all my life. She takes a bespoke approach to her clients and is willing to tailor each session to my needs. I cannot thank her enough!

During a wide-ranging discussion about issues of weight control Laura put forward a simple eating plan based on proven scientific research that has completely revolutionised my life.
