What happens during a consultation?

Prior to your first appointment you will be asked to complete and return a questionnaire and an essential, 3-day food diary. This will ensure you gain the maximum value from the initial consultation.

The initial consultation lasts up to 90 minutes. This will involve a detailed discussion of your health concerns, symptoms, diet, lifestyle and medical history. The initial consultation is an opportunity to build a comprehensive picture of your health and will provide the basis for a working relationship that is friendly, understanding and collaborative.

During this first meeting I will use the extensive evidence base for nutritional science to develop a personalised, safe and effective nutrition and lifestyle programme. This will set attainable and realistic targets to help you reach your goals and will consider your own individual biochemistry and unique lifestyle.

Follow-up consultations generally last 30-45 minutes and are necessary to review and refine your programme, and may need to consider any additional factors not met by the initial consultation. The number of further visits that are required will depend on your condition, as well as the ease with which you are able to fit the dietary changes into your life.

Polite notice: Please give 24 hours notice if you cannot keep your appointment. Thank you.

Testing and Supplementation

Biomedical, nutritional or functional tests may also be employed to reveal any underlying factors that may perpetuate your condition and could help to ascertain the nutritional status of your body. Most tests are non-invasive and can be carried out in your own home and sent to a laboratory for evaluation.

These tests may dictate individual nutritional recommendations. Nutritional supplementation may also be used to enhance the overall effectiveness of your dietary programme.

"Through the course of your visits you should undoubtedly see desirable and sustainable changes to your overall health and well-being."

"You could look forward to experiencing an increase in energy levels and improved vitality. With continued commitment you could expect to feel fantastic."
