Thank you so much for taking the time to come and learn more about our programme – we’re excited to see you here.

So what is the HGG?

The Happy Gut Guide is a 12 week self-management programme designed to help YOU take control of your IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) symptoms.

The Happy Gut Guide has been co-created by Dietitian Laura Tilt and Madeleine Shaw.

Laura is a registered dietitian who has specialised in gut conditions and IBS for over five years, seeing hundreds of IBS sufferers in weekly clinics. Since training in the low FODMAP diet in 2012, and seeing how many people were struggling with IBS symptoms without support, Laura has become passionate about raising awareness of IBS, and helping sufferers to take control.

Madeleine is a nutritional therapist and best selling author of three cookbooks. She first got into health after being diagnosed with IBS. After years of suffering Madeleine discovered that changing her diet and lifestyle was the key to managing symptoms. She always dreamed of sharing her knowledge with the world, helping others with the same condition.


IBS support is severely lacking in the UK

Research suggests IBS affects up to 1 in 7 people in the UK - but very little is available to help patients manage the condition. Where do you start with IBS? How can you take control of your symptoms?

We came together to create this programme, because we just don’t think there’s anything like this out there - and we’ve seen first hand how difficult it is to access support services.

An Affordable Cost

Seeing a dietitian privately can cost hundreds of pounds - and we know not everyone has the opportunity to do this. The alternative - accessing a dietitian through your G.P. - can take months - or may not even be available in your area. The Happy Gut Guide costs just £49.99 for lifetime access making this an accessible programme for all.

A 360 Approach

We wanted to meet you in the middle by creating a programme that you can follow to start taking control of your symptoms - NOW. This isn’t just about diet - we’ve created a 360 degree approach to help you better manage your symptoms - which includes mindset, movement and meals.

Support and Community

We also recognise the importance of support and community, which is why when you join us, you’ll be joining a support system, where you can share stories, advice and tips.

Who is this Programme for?

  • You’ve been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome
  • You’re ready to make some lifestyle changes to help manage your symptoms
  • You’ve been advised to change your diet, but have no access to a dietitian
  • You’re confused about IBS and want some support!

Please note, this programme is not suitable if

  • You have not visited your G.P. to discuss your gut symptoms, this is super important to check it isn’t something more serious
  • You are underweight, or have lost more than 10% of your body weight in the last 6 months
  • You have or have previously had an eating disorder


It’s really important that you’ve been to see your G.P. (doctor) and have had a diagnosis of IBS before you start this programme.

Although it is tempting to self-diagnose, the symptoms of IBS (like bloating, tummy pain or a change in your poop) are the same as those we see in conditions like coeliac disease and inflammatory bowel disease. If these go undiagnosed, they can lead to more serious health problems, so it’s important to make sure you’re starting with the right diagnosis.

A visit to your G.P. will help get you on the right path to managing your symptoms. You will most likely be sent for a blood test, which will help your doctor to determine whether your symptoms are down to IBS. They will ask some questions about your symptoms and poo habits, and how long these have been going on.

I know it might feel embarrassing to discuss your poo habits with your G.P., but I promise they’ve heard it all before. If you don’t know where to start, you might it helpful to take a symptom diary with you, to help describe what you’ve been experiencing.
