TestimonialsA sample of what my clients have to say
Thanks to all my clients for their kind words
It has been a privilege to support every single one of my clients and to witness them regaining their energy and vitality after months and years of not feeling like themselves
Where do I start… I have possibly one of the most complicated medical histories… a lifetime of seemingly unrelated illnesses that amount to more than just bad luck. However, no one has ever thought about whether there is a link.
I have been working with Caroline for a few months and her approach has been gentle and caring but more importantly she has really listened in a way no other healthcare professional has done. Her holistic approach is extremely thorough, and her research into each and every one of my symptoms, gave me a new found hope that perhaps I wasn’t always going to live with pain on a daily basis. Suspecting that all my conditions might be caused by an underlying and undiagnosed issue, she persuaded me to try the AIP/Paleo elimination diet to see whether food sensitivity may help with some, if not all of my symptoms.
Initially sceptical, I figured I had nothing to lose and with her constant support, help and advice I started this diet a few weeks ago. At first it was a bit hard getting my head around all the things I wasn’t allowed, and how to eat enough of the right foods, but her website has lots of recipes and she has guided me to a couple of great cook books and it’s actually been much easier than I had imagined. With the added bonus that I have lost some weight that I have been trying to shift for a couple of years!
I don’t think I really understood what “health coaching” meant and was worried that I was going to be guilt tripped into doing loads of things I didn’t really want to do (namely going to a gym!), but Caroline works with you and what is achievable, and I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who wants to make changes to their health but doesn’t know where to start.
I would like to highly recommend Caroline Lamont for her professional expertise, her incredible listening skills and attentiveness to detail and for encouraging me to keep going when I was ill.
I didn’t really believe that it would make such a difference when I approached Caroline but I was desperate. I had suffered with ulcerative colitis for more than 20 years, on and off but in 2018, I suffered one of the worst flares I had ever experienced. I was struggling to sleep through the night, needing to go to the loo with very little warning, in pain and bleeding. It was affecting my life, physically and emotionally. We live near the sea but I was scared to walk along the beach with our young girls as there was no cover if I needed to suddenly go to the loo. I was anaemic, losing hair and scared.
One night, when I was awake and researching again for help of some sort to deal with the illness, I found Caroline’s website greatingreatout.com and I contacted her.
From the moment we spoke, I realised what a difference it makes to have someone to talk to, who can empathise because they have suffered from an autoimmune illness, and have a young family, but someone who also has the medical expertise to offer solutions. I appreciated the methodical holistic approach and time spent in between calls to trial options.
I learnt so much about the condition my body was in and neither needed to depend on conventional medicines nor exclude them. I felt confident to walk step by step through a range of suggestions from Epsom salt baths to increase my magnesium levels to specific blood tests to see what was actually going on.
Now, I feel in control and the symptoms have stopped. Working with Caroline was a joy and really I can’t recommend highly enough being treated by Caroline. I do feel confident now in my own journey of healthy living but partly because I know that I can return to Caroline for help in the future. Many thanks Caroline – you are an inspiration.
I enjoyed working with Caroline enormously. She is positive, supportive and really fun to spend time with – she has joie de vivre in bucketloads! I feel confident she would be able to help someone with severe health problems but she’s also a go-to person if something doesn’t feel right and you cant work out yourself what it is. Her recommended way of eating is a joy in a world of deprivation diets and she will take you by the hand to achieve better health and a more harmonious relationship with food. Part life-coach, part therapist, part nutritionist – I can’t recommend Caroline more highly and I miss spending time with her now our sessions have ended.
I can really recommend Caroline’s Health Coaching. So far I had a total of 5 sessions with Caroline. I always received a great summary via email afterwards addressing topics we discussed with valuable links to further resources and recipes. I decided to embark on the AIP journey and I really enjoyed this thanks to Caroline. Although I haven’t been formally diagnosed with an Autoimmune Disease, the health benefits AIP- healing the gut- and reducing associated issues are easy to understand. Especially cutting out gluten, which I started with before properly following AIP, seemed to eliminate my frequent headaches. As a nice side effect of AIP I lost 8kg in 6 weeks as weight is the result of an imbalance in the body. Eating 9 portions of vegetables a day means you are never hungry when adding protein to every meal as well. Despite eliminating a lot I never craved any of the non-AIP food.
Caroline was always there with great advice. I highly recommend to make Caroline part of your health journey.
