Prior to your consultation, you will receive a detailed health questionnaire for completion along with my terms of engagement form.
The questionnaire is vital for me to establish what your immediate health concerns are, what medication you take (past and previous) and your health history. This questionnaire includes a 3 day food diary that will help guide my recommendations at the first consultation.
Allow 1 hour for this consultation. This is your opportunity to tell your story and discuss your health concerns, current lifestyle and stressors that may be impacting on your health.
I am often told by clients that just having the time to be heard is an important part of the therapeutic process relieving stress and triggering motivation for change.
At the end of the first consultation, we work together to agree on 3-5 dietary or lifestyle changes that suit your individual needs and health concerns.
The end of the first consultation is where most of my, behind the scenes work takes place, researching your case.
Researching the evidence is a vital part of nutritional therapy and provides support upon which I base my recommendations for dietary supplements and functional tests. My approach is based on the Functional medicine model of health. Your story is embedded within a functional medicine matrix which highlights areas of health imbalances that need attention. We then focus our attention on these health imbalances at the next consultations, building on your progress and adapting your personalised recommendations.
Depending on your chosen package, you will receive a minimum of three consultations and 20 minutes remote support between consultations, usually via telephone or email.
Change takes time
To see real benefits in your health, requires time and motivation. If you are willing to dedicate your time to the process I can help you maintain the motivation. Nutritional therapy is not a quick fix solution, it is about educating and empowering you to make the right choices moving forward to sustain the health benefits you are now enjoying into the future, benefiting you and your family.
