Success Stories

The fantastic support, guidance and encouragement from Stiana is outstanding. She really does take time to explain everything in detail and her approach is both comforting and educational. She is so understanding and is always there when you need her. Nothing is too much trouble. Whereas GPs often dismiss or suggest ‘everything is ok’, Stiana really takes time to listen and digs deep to find the true causes of my symptoms. I can not recommend her enough and I am very grateful to her for everything she does.

I can’t even remember how I came across The Wellness Junction and Stiana. I can honestly say it was the best thing to happen to me in recent years. Stiana is amazing and wonderful. Her knowledge of thyroid function, meditation and mental health are astounding. But more than that, her love, care, kindness, support and generosity is out of this world. Never have I met a professional as kind, caring understanding and respectful as Stiana.

Stiana has changed my life, my health, my mind. She’s made me believe and showed me there is hope and cure for me when I’d lost all hope.

It’s been a true blessing to have Staina supporting me in my journey to better health and wellbeing physically, spiritually and mentally.

I did Stiana’s reboot your thyroid online 3 month course. When I started I was feeling lost with my condition I had lost my confidence and my weight was creeping up again! During the course I learnt about my thyroid condition and how it works. I learnt lots about what are the best things to eat for me and I lost weight just by changing my diet and looking at what works for me and my energy levels. I finally feel comfortable in my body for the 1st time since my thyroid diagnosis. Stiana is so knowledgeable and always there to help if u have questions she has given me some amazing advice. I would highly recommend speaking to her or doing a course if you are feeling lost with any thyroid or gut issues.

Before working with Stiana, I had struggled to deal with various symptoms and health issues.
Having hypothyroidism didn’t help. After contracting Covid, my thyroid kept swinging between hypo and hyper and my medication kept being altered.
I was cold all the time, had aching joints and felt tired all the time. I knew I had to look into this further and was frustrated at feeling so low all the time.
I heard about the Reboot your thyroid course and decided to give it a try.
I was enrolled onto the programme and assessed, and clear goals were set from the start.
Every week I joined a small group of women and we followed the programme going through detailed, helpful units in order to achieve our health goals.
I thoroughly enjoyed the programme, met some wonderful ladies and learnt a lot about my body, health and mindset.
Following the advice from Stiana, and a new improved diet regime, I started to see improvements in my skin, my mindset, and my emotional and physical health improved. Amazingly, I was able to reduce my thyroid medication as my symptoms reduced and stabilised!
I would highly recommend this programme and Stiana.
I can not thank her enough for all her knowledge and help and for providing a nurturing session each week in order for me to achieve my health goals.

I’ve lost nearly 4 years of my life to ill health, I became very poorly, very quickly, desperate for answers and a plan of action, I saw 4 Consultants, 1 private, & 3 NHS over an 18 month period. Eventually, a Consultant Neurologist diagnosed me with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME and Fibromyalgia, on top of an existing Under-active Thyroid condition. I was put on 16 tablets a day, told my pain was managed and my life was left diminished and unrecognisable, I lost my job and Career of 12 years due to the illness. I was in a wheelchair, or had to use crutches due to the pain and weakness in my legs and joints, I slept 16-18 hours a day, my husband had to bathe, cook and help carry me up the stairs, my cognitive function was so poor that I feared I had early onset dementia. This is a tiny snap shot of the misery of living with debilitating illness day in and day out. I had made some progress in my recovery through energy healing and talking therapies, however, I was still very poorly when I found Stiana.

Stiana took a thorough life history and recommended some tests, which I had, these really showed why my health was still so poor, I had leaky gut, gut dysbosis, a parasite, vitamin and mineral deficiencies amongst other things. Stiana devised a plan of action, which I have followed for the last 8 months. During this time, I have had a massive improvement to my health and quality of life. I must say, at the beginning I felt slightly worse, however, I’m so glad I stuck with it, it’s as though my life force energy has returned a tiny bit each day. For the first time in 4 years I can go for a walk with my grandchildren, I have joined a gym, I have very little pain and weakness, my energy levels and stamina are so much improved, I am naturally waking up in the morning with energy for the day ahead and I’ve started a part-time job, which is going really well. I couldn’t have envisioned this progress 8 months ago.

I absolutely credit Stiana for my recovery, she has guided, supported and encouraged me every step of the way. Stiana has a lovely, person-centred approach and I feel she really listens, it’s very much a joint way of working, where Stiana empowers you.

My only regret is that I didn’t find Stiana 3 and a half years earlier, however, I’m over the moon with my progress and cannot recommend Stiana highly enough. The investment in working with Stiana has given me my health, quality of life and earning potential back.

After only two sessions with Stiana I noticed significant improvement in my energy levels, sleep quality, mental and gut health and I got my period back. She’s given me brilliant food advice and her wellness plan and recommended supplements have helped reduce inflammation and generally made a huge difference in my everyday life.

– Katarina

I have been suffering with IBS, Lupus, Sjogren’s, Fibromialgia etc. for a number of years.From the age of about 40 I have been suffering from really bad constipation. I had seen to a variety of specialist without success. This led to regular use of senokot, which had to be increased over the years to deliver results. I can honestly say that I have not had a normal stool for the last 35 years.

This changed when I started working with Stiana. Three months ago, she started work on supporting my ongoing problems with Lupus. She taught me how to eat properly, how to cut out sugar, gluten and dairy. It wasn’t easy, but my debilitating symptoms motivated me to persist. Stiana analysed my past medical history and medication and meticulously researched what she could use to avoid any contra-indications as I am taking a lot of medication.

She did some testing and suggested specific supplements.Within one week, really, just one week of starting work on my gut, my stomach aches were gone, and I was having daily normal stools, and continue to do so daily.I feel so much better overall and couldn’t thank Stiana enough for giving me my health back. It took me 3 years to start on the plan as I always had an excuse, but the only reason was that I didn’t want to give up the junk that I was eating. At last I did, and I couldn’t be happier.

I first went to see Stiana in autumn 2018 after attending her talk on gut health at the open day – it captured my attention and I felt it was relevant. I’d had a really bad flare up of psoriasis since April and it was really uncomfortable and getting worse by the day. I knew I didn’t want steroids or traditional treatments as I really wanted to get to the bottom of what wasn’t working within my body to have caused such an aggressive reaction.

Immediately Stiana took control and whilst my diet wasn’t particularly ‘bad’ made me make some significant, permanent changes. The list of supplements bamboozled my tired brain a little at first but wow did they work! Within three months – the difference was unbelievable, hardly a patch of red, sore skin, significantly increased energy, and overall wellness… I found it so hard to believe. I really stuck to the advice and did as much as I could on top of diet but there were always a few areas I didn’t get to complete – mostly regarding time for ‘me’ but I know the importance and am constantly looking for ways to achieve this! Stiana shares her wealth of knowledge about wider health issues and future prevention freely.

Thanks so much for the support, encouragement, advice in all areas – not just for my original complaint. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Stiana to anyone looking for relief of a particular complaint or just seeking more overall wellness. Thanks.

When I started working with Stiana I was having some major issues with my skin and gut health. After an extensive consultation, Stiana determined the best steps to take towards my recovery. We talked on regular occasions whilst I followed various protocols to get my health back on track. Stiana reassured me on what to expect during each stage of my treatment.

It has been over 5 months and I’m feeling almost back to my best self. My skin and gut are massively improved all thanks to Stiana’s knowledge and understanding of how the body works. I am forever grateful for all your support Stiana – thank you very much.

– Kathryn

I started to see Stiana myself regarding debilitating problems with my monthly cycle. With dietary changes and supplements things have improved enormously, for which I am very grateful. Whereas the GP was suggesting stronger painkillers and other medication which was causing side effects, I felt that Stiana was taking the time to listen and understand and address the underlying causes. I was able to stop taking the medication and my overall health has improved.

Stiana is incredibly knowledgable and passionate about what she does. She provides a detailed wellbeing plan after every consultation which is very helpful in implementing dietary changes and supplements. She is a great listener and really cares about working with her clients to improve their nutrition, health and well-being.

For most of my adult life I was diagnosed with IBS and have always struggled to the point where pain and discomfort was just normality. A huge thank you to Stiana at ‘the wellness junction’ for helping me discover that this didn’t have to be the case, after tests and changes in diet and lifestyle we discovered my body was intolerant to dairy and gluten. over the last 12 months and with changes to the diet to accommodate this I am now 3 stone lighter and alot more comfortable in myself. it’s amazing to see what can effect the body but also to see how it can adapt and change when you take out aspects that don’t agree with you. A huge recommendation and it’s never too late in life to make changes. Thank you.

– Steve

My first consultant at The Wellness Junction was informative and Stiana’s wealth of knowledge and experience within the world of nutrition is aiding me on my journey to recovery. After just four weeks my digestive health has improved and I have lost weight, which was a positive unintentional consequence. As my journey continues I feel positive I have direction for the future.

– Dan

Stiana has been really helpful from my first interaction and made a big difference in my personal life and training too! From more energy, no bloating, better training, feeling stronger and happier! I am such a fussy eater as well so I must be a nightmare as the diet change was quite a overhaul for me but I am sticking to it and Stiana is suggesting different things that I really like! and supporting me! I am getting comments already about physic change and I need a new belt! and I was not after loosing weight but I am getting more toned! Looking forward to future results and continued support!

A great person to help you in your goals.. I am a Vet 40 runner already at a high level but I want to be better and already had 2 PB improvements since working with Stiana most recent 3k 8:58…

– Jamie

Thank you Stiana for my personalised wellness plan. I can’t believe how much depth you have gone into to create a workable solution for all aspects of my life. You really listened and understood my needs not only physically with nutritional recommendations but emotionally including reconnecting with myself by using meditation and affirmations. Thank you also for your beautiful warmth, empathy and wisdom. I look forward to seeing you again soon feeling healthier and happier than I have in a long time.

– Deborah

I would highly recommend Stiana – my son and I have both experienced significant improvements in health conditions since working with her. My son was struggling with recurrent tonsillitis and was missing a lot of school, especially every winter. The ENT consultant was suggesting a tonsillectomy but I felt unsure about going down this route without investigating other ways to improve his health. We discovered that my son has a dust-mite allergy and after just a few consultations with Stiana, my son improved significantly and he has not needed a tonsillectomy. We are now doing ongoing work to support his immune system.

– Liz

Stiana is an excellent nutritionist and she is so easy to talk to, I felt comfortable working with her as soon as I met her. We have worked out a programme which I feel I can cope with and Stiana has been very supportive and encouraging. I highly recommend her.

– Josie

I have been seen by the wellness junction for the last month and a half after struggling with ibs for years. In the first month I have had to eliminate a lot of foods but feel so much better and has lost 8lb in a month with no ibs attacks. Looking forward to start introducing foods back in now.

– Debbie

I have been working Stiana since November. Initially I went to see if she could help with constipation, weight loss and poor quality sleep. Fast approaching my 50th birthday, I wanted to feel good, not just okay. She explained that the gut is a fragile organ and all the yo-yo dieting and abuse I’d given it over many years takes its toll and we needed to restore things back to how things should be and get things moving! Within weeks I could see a massive improvement with the constipation and the pounds have continued to come off without me thinking about it. Sleep is still a work in progress, but I know what I should be doing!

Unfortunately for me it hasn’t been a quick fix, as there are other issues that we have had to get to the bottom of, but we are getting there. I can finally see the light at the end of tunnel. From the offset I was really impressed by Stiana’s professionalism and passion for the job. I had to complete a food dairy and health questionnaire prior to my initial consultation. She had already come up with a comprehensive plan for me and full explanation of everything I would be doing at the first meeting. I’m not going to lie, at times it’s been hard following the plan as life sometimes get in the way, but I’ve stuck with it as I really don’t want to go back to feeling how I used to. I have gained so much knowledge through doing the plan and listening to Stiana. It really has made a massive difference to my life.

I started working with Stiana in October this year wanting to understand the detail of nutrition and well being and how by getting the basics right and understanding your connection with nutrition, this can positively influence so many aspects of your life such as weight, energy and mood. It’s been really enlightening for me, I had no real idea the effect certain foods can have on you both positively and negatively. It’s not just food we’ve looked at, but overall well being in sleep and stress amongst other things. The difference I feel and see in myself over the past 2 months has been fantastic and this is from small tweaks and changes to my current lifestyle, nothing drastic so totally manageable. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Stiana.

– Emily

I’ve been working with Stiana since January on my goals to improve sleep, concentrations, lose some body fat and improve training recovery/performance. In just 3 months the changes I’ve felt have been beyond what I thought I could achieve, hitting all my goals and even chasing bigger ones moving forward. If you want someone who is extremely knowledgeable to set out an incredibly detailed plan for your nutritional and even lifestyle goals, then Stiana is the person for you! She’ll make a plan specified to you and motivate you to stay on track throughout the process, making a seemingly difficult challenge a lot easier.
