What to Expect

Dietary and Lifestyle Analysis

An analysis of your three day food and lifestyle diary: a nutrition and lifestyle assessment will be taken based on an average intake over three days using professional expertise and nutrition analysis software. I will look your average intake of calories, vitamins and minerals, carbohydrates, fats and proteins along with lifestyle factors. 

You will receive a written report of my analysis which will outline any areas which may need further support. This will not include any dietary or lifestyle recommendations. This will be returned to you within 10 working days via an email link to your secure client folder.

 

Please be aware that this is not a substitute for a personalised and tailored nutritional therapy consultation which looks at your specific health concerns, goals and potential imbalances. Even if your intake appears sufficient, it does not inform you how your body is able to digest, absorb and assimilate essential nutrients for optimum health. You may wish to upgrade to a one-to-one consultation where you can receive £25 off the price of either package 1 or 2. 

Initial Consultation:

 

Prior to your initial consultation, you are required to complete an extended health questionnaire (this takes around 45 minutes online or you can have a shortened paper version if you prefer) and a three day food and lifestyle diary which must be completed at least 72 hours prior to your consultation. This allows time to research and prepare your case prior to your appointment. 

You will also receive paperwork with regards terms & conditions, data protection and privacy policy. You will be required to sign a consent form prior to the initial appointment to confirm that you are happy with these. 

Your initial consultation will last up to 90 minutes and includes:​

  • ​An outline of the consultation structure and checking paperwork is in place

  • In-depth questioning and discussion of your completed health questionnaire and food/lifestyle diary along with your health goals

  • An explanation of any potential imbalances or nutritional deficiencies that have been identified from prior detailed analysis of your completed paperwork and further questioning during the consultation

  • A "Measure Yourself Concerns And Wellness" form  to track your progress over the coming weeks/months

  • Collaboration with you to devise a 'Health and Wellbeing Plan' which will include tailored recommendations for nutrition and lifestyle changes, a supplement plan and/or functional testing*. The final plan and supporting paperwork will be provided within 2 working days via an email link to your secure client folder.

  • Collaboration or referral to your medical practitioner or other health care professional if deemed necessary and only with your consent

  • Exclusive discounts on professional supplements via the Natural Dispensary

Your initial consultation is often the very beginning of your journey to optimum health as nutritional therapy uses a staged approach, therefore it may take some time before you notice any changes or benefits as your body adapts. Appropriate follow-up will be discussed with you depending on your individual case and a number of sessions may be recommended. 

 

Follow-Up Consultation:

Your follow-up consultation will last up to 60 minutes and includes:

  • A brief introduction outlining the consultation structure

  • Brief questioning about your previous consultation, discussion of any new symptoms/issues, changes to medications etc and how you got on with your Health and Wellbeing Plan

  • Discussion and interpretation of any test results**, outcome of referral to GP or other health professional

  • Further explanation of potential imbalances or nutritional deficiencies if relevant

  • A "Measure Yourself Concerns And Wellness" form to assess progress so far

  • Collaboration with you to devise a follow up 'Health and Wellbeing Plan'. The final plan and supporting paperwork will be provided within 2 working days via an email link to your secure client folder

  • Exclusive discounts on professional supplements via the Natural Dispensary

 

*Supplements and testing are NOT included in the cost of the consultation and are only recommended/performed if clinically appropriate and in full agreement with the client. The practitioner may make a small commission from functional testing and supplements which is taken instead of charging the client for the time spent discussing the appropriate test/supplement with the company involved and any subsequent interpretation of test results.  

**Verbal interpretation of test results is included in your consultation cost and is provided by telephone, Zoom or face-to-face at your follow up appointment. Should you wish to receive a written interpretation, an extra fee will be incurred, the cost depending on the test involved.
