Here’s what some of Catherine’s clients have said…
“Catherine went above and beyond to make sure we were properly supported while our baby weaned and as we developed her diet through the various stages of weaning. We can’t recommend her enough.” Emma Flower, Mum to Sophie, South London
“Thanks to Catherine’s workshop we have made small but impactful changes for us all and my daughter’s eating habits are improving step by step. We feel empowered and more importantly mealtimes no longer feel like a battle ground but more a time for us to just 'be' as a family. Thank you!” Jo Tuner, Surrey.
