Sonia Hollis –  Nutritional Therapist (MSc, CNHC, NLP Practitioner)

Sonia Hollis Nutritional Therapist (MSc)
Registered with Complimentary & Healthcare Council

About Me 

I haven’t always been a nutritional therapist – my other occupation is as a British Sign Language interpreter. However, my direction in life dramatically changed in 2015 after losing my gorgeous twin sister, Tania, to cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer). At that time I was overweight, eating unhealthy foods and drinking far too much wine!

In May 2016 I made the decision that it was my TIME to finally take my health and fitness seriously and “get back on track”. This saw me engaging the services and receiving amazing support from my PT Darren Wright (from Fitness Ambition) who helped me lose a lot of weight, become stronger, eat healthier and finally gain back control in my health and fitness, both in body and mind. 

During this time, I was encouraged to return to University in 2017 and study for my MSc in Personalised Nutrition to retrain as a Nutritional Therapist and NLP Practitioner. This has been a developing journey and is close to my heart – so that my sister’s journey was not in vain. Hence the internal push I feel in myself each day to be the best I can and to help others. It keeps me close to my sister as I honestly feel she has sent me people in my path for a reason.

Sonia has been a wealth of information and support over the past 12 weeks. I was really struggling with migraines, low energy and weight that wouldn't shift. The information and advice that Sonia has shared with me has had a huge impact on my health and quality of life. Although the migraines haven't completely gone they have much improved and as a result I have been able to focus on my other health goals. I now understand how what I eat and when effects my energy levels and weight. Thank you Sonia, I have learnt so much and now have the tools to continue to work towards my goals.

I knew Sonia from our gym days so was delighted when I googled nutritionist and her name popped up first. I was at the end if my tehter as Ive just kept gaining and gaining weight for no apparent reason. I eat healthy and trained 3 to 4 times a week. Before my first consultation with Sonia I had blood tests and when I first saw her I told her my symptoms and she immediately said to go gluten free and take my temperature every morning for 2 weeks. This showed Sonia what she wanted to see and soon after I had my Dr's diagnosis. I also suffer with acid reflux. Dr said take gaviscon for 2 weeks, if it helps ill prescribe you something... I stopped eating nightshade foods, Google it... Who knew?! I've not had gaviscon since. Once we knew the root of the problem Sonia immediately got to work on mounds and mounds, of research, dietary needs and habit breaking suggestions. I'd have a snack at 10 and 3 and breakfast, lunch ant tea... I didn't need it, it was a habit. Managed to break that in a week... I had 2 12 week cycles with Sonia and I feel a lot better and less sluggish. I'm on the right road and I know this is not an overnight fix but with Sonia guidance and knowledge I'll get there. As yet, I've not lost any weight but it will come. If I'd not reconnected with Sonia, I don't know what I'd be doing now... Sorry for the long post... I could go on and on... Thank you Sonia x

I’m just at the end of my 12 week support with Sonia. It has been life changing for me! I knew I couldn’t maintain my lifestyle, as I at my heaviest l had ever been, feeling unhealthy! Sonia took the time to listen to me, and guide me through, a achievable plan, taking one step at a time with small changes. Then lunch and dinner ideas. A guide on different types of food , healthy sugars/fats. I’m definitely enjoying my new diet. Loosing weight, and definitely feel healthier happy, more energy. Definitely worth giving it a go, to help you change your lifestyle and feel good. I’m signing up again for another 12 weeks. looking forward to hearing what Sonia has planned for me.

It was my husband who saw I was despairing about my weight, bloatedness, puffiness and who knew I was unhappy within myself… he knows Sonia and after much persuasion from him I decided to book my half hour session thinking it’ll be a waste of time … maybe I’ll try slimming world again (for the umpteenth time!). Well .. that half an hour with Sonia turned on a switch .. she listened to what my ailments were, how unhappy I was with myself and because of certain different medical reasons how I felt down about the way I was… she listened and said I can help you and I believed she could .. that half an hour gave me hope! 12 weeks down the line I’m at the end of the tunnel .. it’s bright.. I feel fantastic.. weight is coming off, I’m eating delicious food and discovering me again, I feel healthier , no more sluggish feeling in the afternoons, I don’t want to have a nap! It isn’t a quick fix, it’s slow , steady and understanding the different food types and how they help and it’s patience. I can’t praise Sonia enough, I no longer feel guilty about what I eat as it’s just delicious, I have loved cooking new recipes and have a few favourites. Sonia … a big THANK YOU!

Working with Sonia, my Personalised Nutritional Therapist, taught me so much about my health and diet. Having Rheumatoid Arthritis and not knowing what the triggers were, I was eating food that I enjoyed but was not good for the condition. Sonia got to work by checking my family history, working with my doctor and checking my Blood test for any contra indications, looking at my daily food intake and recomending Food and fruits that was good for me and additionl food supplements that contributes to the maintenance of the whole body. I'm on a gluten free diet, my overall health has improved and I am happy that I found Sonia, and I would recommend her to anyone looking to improve their health.

I came to Sonia with a few health concerns. She has helped me find supplements to support this and most of the symptoms have gone! I have learnt so much with how my body reacts to certain foods,so I can now move forward and avoid these for the future.

Sonia is a wealth of information for all your nutritional needs. Approachable & genuinely wants to help. Her passion for what she does is very evident. I followed her 14 day detox programme. This plan was so easy to follow with clear & delicious recipes as well as explanations on what incorporates a balanced diet. Sonia regularly checked in and I felt totally supported. My diet had become shocking living off fast carbs and not caring what I was fuelling my body with. I was always tired. After 14 days I lost 7lb & 5 inches but the most remarkable change was how I felt in myself. Stronger, fitter & healthier. Sleep improved & my mood. My energy levels have rocketed. I have made eating a balanced diet part of my everyday norm and haven’t looked back. I’m seeing results both in my training and general everyday life. What you fuel your body with really makes a dramatic difference. I 100% recommend Sonia. She is exactly what you need to meet all your nutritional needs.
