What our clients are saying about the Placebo diet

  • “Janet is an inspirational teacher and trainer and her techniques bring about immediate and effective change”

    Janey Lee Grace BBR Radio 2 Presenter and Best Selling Author

  • “I attended one of Janet’s courses because I wanted to be healthier and take better care of my body, and I can honestly say that since then, my life has changed for the better. 
Janet has a warmth about her and she is so passionate, knowledgeable and genuinely thrilled that the system that she has developed is able to help so many people; it’s difficult not to be excited yourself. The best part is that it works!

    Fiona Gregory

  • “All this is presented with Janet’s calm, assured professionalism, produced by many years of successfully helping client s with just these issues. Janet teaches principles which clearly she adheres to herself: living proof of the effectiveness of her scheme.”


  • “Janet was very professional, extremely perceptive, easy to talk to and has a straightforward manner that I really like. She quickly identified the issues in the first session. Since then I have literally blossomed! Now I feel free to relax into it the process of making better choices.”

    Anne Mills

  • “10 months after following The Placebo Diet programme, I am now 10st 6lb (down from 13st 2lb). I haven’t done masses more exercise or joined a gym…just followed Janets advice and used the mind changing techniques. As silly as it sounds I eat what I want: it’s what I want that has changed! Significantly though my BMI has dropped from 30.6 (obese) to 24.2 (safe range) Janet – Would it be exaggerating to say “you saved my life?”

    Marie James

  • “Woo hoo! Two stone off and BMI already down from 37.9 to 32.9, so just three points off being “overweight” rather than “obese“ – I can do it!!”

My mission

Its official, I have the best job in the world. I can not only help people change their minds, how they think and feel about food, but also (and more importantly) help people feel better about themselves and learn how to make better choices in all areas of their life. It is incredibly rewarding to watch someone change inside and out.

Academically I have always worked hard to stay up to date with latest research in the field of nutrition and exercise science, but it was when a client said to me “I know what to do, I just need to sort my head out” that I had my epiphany moment. The next day I was enrolled on a clinical hypnotherapy course, and I haven’t looked back, adding many more therapies to my tool box.

I am absolutely committed to helping people not only shed the weight off their bodies, but also take any excess weight off their minds. The feedback I get from clients is truly heart-warming, I think I am going to be one of those people who never gives up work! I am addicted to helping my many clients, who maybe started out exactly where you are now; I am as happy as they are when they not only reach but exceed their goals. I’d love to help you achieve that too.
