The time you'll save!
Are you fed up of spending hours in the supermarket avoiding gluten and 'may contains'?
Do you wish you could be more spontaneous about eating out? That it didn't involve several phone calls, e-mail follow-ups and a magnifying glass to read a mammoth allergens folder?
Do you dream of having an easier life where you don't feel your priorities don't revolve around food?
With my guidance you can easily save over
30 minutes a day;
that's 182 hours per year!

My story (and why I know what you’re going through)
When I was first diagnosed with coeliac disease, I felt so alone. Nobody seemed that concerned about me. There were flippant remarks, casual misdiagnoses and ritual humiliation (like being weighed in front of a full waiting room).
And each time I was given a new diagnosis, there’d be a familiar sense of realisation they’d got it wrong again. When the doctors had absolute confidence and conviction I had endometriosis, they cut me open under general anaesthetic and discovered I didn’t.
There were also small acts of incompetence, like the nurse who offered me a biscuit post-diagnosis.
And it wasn’t just the medical profession that caused me frustration. Problems seemed to sprout everywhere. A family member told me my pain was psychosomatic. A ‘friend’ thought if she secretly hid gluten in my food that I’d never know. At work there’d be beige buffets with absolutely nothing I could have except a slice of cheddar. (Much as I like cheese, it’s hardly a well-rounded meal.)
Those were the days when no-one had the internet and allergen information didn’t appear on food. And although a lot has changed, in many ways it’s created a new problem – we’re now swamped with so much information it’s difficult to know where to start.
I remember feeling totally lost. I wish I’d had someone I could have turned to – someone to give me confidence.
So that’s why I’ve created this course.
Total cost: £997
* (option to pay monthly include £83 per month!)
Includes all course materials, videos, Zoom sessions with experts and access to a private coeliac group.
If I can’t make the Zoom sessions, will the videos be available on catch-up?
Yes. You’ll be sent links to the videos to watch when it’s convenient for you.
Do I need to have coeliac disease to do the course?
You’ll find parts of the course are tailored specifically for coeliacs. However, if you have another reason to be gluten-free there’s plenty on the course that will be really useful.
How do I make payment?
Via PayPal or debit/credit card (click here).
I need to avoid dairy/egg/I’m also vegan. Will you show me foods I can eat?
Yes! There’ll be so many options for you (and obviously everything we discuss will be gluten-free).
My daughter/partner/sibling has coeliac disease. Would it be helpful for me to take part?
Absolutely! Show me a coeliac who wouldn't be hugely appreciative of such a supportive person in their life! It's really helpful for coeliacs to have other people who know how to help them and doing this course is a great way to make this happen.
Can I benefit even if I'm not a newly diagnosed coeliac?
Yes! Many people choose the course after years of being coeliac. The webinars and Q&A sessions are aimed at coeliacs who are struggling. So whether it's with your diagnosis or day-to-day living and you need expert advice and tips, there's masses to benefit from.
How much does it cost?
The total cost is £997 or 2 options in instalments: members can pay in monthly instalments of £83* (and you can become a member for free!).
