About a Consultation
Phone or email me if you want to discuss the suitability of a Nutritional consultation for your own health.
If you decide to have a consultation, once you have booked your appointment I will send you a Nutritional Assessment Questionnaire and a three-day food diary to complete. This gives you the opportunity to record any health matters you want to discuss. Complete the questionnaire and diary and return it to me so I am aware of any medications you may be prescribed, and acquainted with your health history before you arrive for your consultation. If you are having your consultation by phone, it is helpful that the questionnaire and food Diary are returned to me at least 3 days before the appointment date.
Your initial consultation will last for 1 hour. Where possible, this should be a face to face consultation, but if health or distance prevents a physical meeting, and you have checked for suitable practitioners in your area through the BANT website, this can be as a telephone consultation. We will begin by reviewing your questionnaire together, highlighting your health goals and concerns. I will then offer advice on nutrition, suggesting which nutritional factors may be influencing your health status, taking into account which major body systems may be in need of specific support. Together we then decide on a practical and achievable plan for progression considering diet, supplements, and life-style factors, to enable you to move towards realising your health goals.
Following your consultation I will email you your Health Recommendations - a comprehensive report covering all that was discussed during your appointment and providing you with a good deal of information to support you in any changes. Your recommendation will also include a tailor-made supplement programme. If you would like these printed as a paper copy in a presentation folder, an additional £5 is charged to cover the cost of printing and additional time involved. The fee paid for the consultation includes 4 weeks of back-up in the form of short emails or phone calls. If you choose to book a Review Consultation during your initial appointment, the back-up support continues up to that date, to a maximum of 12 weeks.
Your Review Consultation (optional)
Although not compulsory, a second consultation is highly recommended after a specified number of weeks, to allow us to monitor progress, address any challenges, fine-tune your supplement programme and make any necessary adjustments to your Nutrition Plan. A second consultation usually lasts about 45 minutes and the fee also includes a further 4 weeks of short back-up emails or phone calls.
You can book any further review consultations that you feel you require to enable you to meet your goals and stay on track, each one providing 4 weeks of short back up emails or telephone calls.
Consultations with children and young people will obviously differ in manner and approach according to their age. Contact me to discuss how I can best support the health of your child.
