the consultation

If Nutritional Therapy sounds like it would be a good fit to support you, please contact me to have a chat about how I can help you or to arrange an appointment.

Nutritional Therapy is more of a jog than a sprint.

Health decline is usually a gradual, long term slide into ill health, so it makes sense that it can also take a while to get back into balance.

How long will it take?

Nutritional Therapy is a natural and gentle healing approach using food and lifestyle changes rather than drugs and surgery. Typically, I will work with a client for between 3 and 6 months, although it may be longer for clients with more complex issues where multiple root causes are at work. Clients also often return for regular reviews to ensure their good health stays on track.

Preparation:

Prior to your Initial Consultation, you will receive a 4 day Food diary and a Health Questionnaire. These forms need to be completed and returned prior to your appointment.

Initial Consultation

This is a private assessment in clinic and takes up to 90 minutes. It includes:

  • Evaluation of your health history and current symptoms
  • Review of current lifestyle
  • Discussing your health goals
  • Analysis of your food diary
  • Discussion of the potential causes of your health problems

At the end of the appointment you will have:

  • Personalised Nutritional Strategy including nutrition and lifestyle recommendations
  • Personalised Supplement Recommendations (where appropriate)
  • Functional Testing recommendations (where appropriate)

TELEPHONE OR EMAIL SUPPORT

Telephone support is available between appointments to discuss any issues or concerns which have arisen or if you want to talk about changes to your Personalised Nutrition Strategy. These are available as 15 or 30 minute sessions, depending on your requirements.

Email support is also available. I can answer simple queries without charge but more complex issues or those requiring additional research are chargeable.

INITIAL CONSULTATION PACKAGE

This includes the Initial assessment appointment and then two follow up appointments, the first is 2-4 weeks after the initial consultation and then a further follow up appointment 4-6 weeks after that. Further follow ups can be arranged as needed, depending on your individual case.

By signing up for this package, you not only receive a 10% discount on the cost of the individual sessions but you are also committing to giving your health the priority it deserves. This commitment allows me to support your progress without placing unrealistic time limits for achieving your goals and allows us to amend your personalised plan in response to the changes you implement (which are done at your own pace) and reflect the progress you have made each time.

Further follow up appointments or telephone support are available once you have completed the first package of appointments and these can be arranged at intervals which reflect the changes you are making and the progress achieved.
