Your Nutritional Therapy Consultation

Your current health situation is a result of many and varied factors. Your genetics, diet, environment, toxic exposure, stress levels, exercise and sleep patterns are among the many factors that play a role. Nutrition is the focus of your consultation, however we will get into all these areas as we work together, which may all be affecting how you are feeling.

FREE 15 minute Phone Call

You may wish to speak to me before making a booking for my services. I encourage you to do this and offer a FREE 10 minute call, when you can tell me a little about your health concerns and what kind of support you are looking for. I will then give details of how I work and we can decide whether we're a good match. There is no pressure during the calls and I will be honest with you. If I think I can be of assistance to you, then I'll make that clear. If I think you would be better off with a different practitioner, I'll refer you to someone within my network. I offer these calls on Mondays between 2pm and 5pm. Click here to access my diary and book a discovery call.

    Packages

    I find that packages of support work best for my clients. With complex and chronic health conditions, it can take a while to work out what is going on, to find the right path to follow and for changes to have the desired effects. The picture is often complicated, like a large, tangled ball of wool, that needs to be slowly loosened and unpicked. The dietary and lifestyle changes that I recommend are individualised and sequenced appropriately so as not to overwhelm you. It takes time and effort to make changes to your diet and lifestyle and establish new routines that relieve your symptoms and fuel your health. This is where I come in - coaching you through the ups and down as you get your health back on track. As the steps you take begin to have their therapeutic effects, the water is less muddy and it becomes easier to target appropriate therapies.

    The 2 main packages I offer are detailed below. Have a read through and then please arrange a discovery call to discuss what would be most appropriate for you. Click here to book

    12 Week Intensive Support Package for Chronic Conditions

    This 12-week programme is for individuals with chronic health conditions, including inflammatory arthritis, fibromyalgia and other chronic pain and fatigue syndromes. This comprehensive programme includes:

  • 5 consultations with me
  • A bespoke action plan, which includes dietary recommendations, meal ideas and recipes if needed
  • My professional advice on the right laboratory testing to support further understanding of your condition
  • Individualised supplement recommendations
  • Weekly access to me by email at set clinic times for the duration of the programme
  • A final summary report recommending next steps you can take to continue your progress

    What happens when I book this package?
    On booking: you will be sent a comprehensive in-take questionnaire and diet diary to complete. You will send these to me ahead of your first consultation to allow time for some initial research into your case.

    Initial consultation: This 90-minute consultation focuses on gathering your story, which is a vital part of working out where your health is out of balance and how nutritional therapy may help. I will carefully listen to your story and will be picking up on the clues that will direct our approach. My goal is to ensure you leave feeling inspired to take control of your health. I will share my general dietary guidelines and get you started on some initial changes.

    Bespoke recommendations and action plan
    Following the first consultation, I will dedicate time to your case, researching the latest nutrition evidence and working out a bespoke action plan tailored to your needs. This will allow me to suggest targeted nutritional recommendations based on the latest scientific evidence available, with practical steps on how to achieve each recommendation. I will also select laboratory testing to help assess the underlying causes of your symptoms. (Please note that these are not included in the package price, as I make bespoke recommendations for each client).

    Follow-up 1: 2 weeks later. During this hour, we’ll review your personalised action plan and agree on the first steps to take. This may require you to make some changes that initially feel challenging, but I will support you to do this. I’ll make sure you understand the reasons behind each recommendation, and how it fits with other areas of your healthcare. We will also discuss and agree what laboratory tests you will do and make practical arrangements for these.

    Follow-up 2: 2 weeks later. This is a check-in call, when you can ask any questions in relation to the action plan we agreed and let me know how the sample collection for testing has gone.

    Follow-up 3: 3-4 weeks later. This one-hour consultation will review symptom change and discuss any laboratory test results. We will discuss targeted supplementation, based on your progress and lab results, and the next steps to take.

    Follow-up 4: 3-4 weeks later. This one-hour consultation will review how you are feeling and the progress you have made towards achieving your health goals. Adjustments will be made to your supplement programme if appropriate, and we will discuss repeating key laboratory tests to assess the impact the programme is having on markers that were out of range. A final report will be prepared following this session, summarising the dietary and supplement protocol, and giving suggested next steps.

    What happens when the programme finishes?
    At the end of the programme, you will hopefully be reaping some benefits – more energised, more comfortable, brighter mood. Some complex situations however, require further support and I am happy to offer follow-on packages, tailored to your needs. I will include suggestions for further support in your final report. Nutritional Therapy, as with other areas of healthcare, offers no guarantees of success. However I can guarantee you that I will not give up searching for solutions for you, for as long as we are working together.


  • 8 Week Digestive Health Package

  • Do you feel bloated after eating and feel suspicious of different foods?
  • Have you read about probiotics but are not sure if they are appropriate in your situation? Or perhaps you’ve tried them and have felt worse?
  • Do you experience on-going constipation or loose stools?
  • Is reflux affecting your quality of life?
  • Have you been diagnosed with IBS?
  • Have you looked at low-FODMAP diets, Specific Carbohydrate Diets, Paleo diets (and others) and feel confused about the best way to eat for you and your symptoms?

    If you have answered yes to any of the above, then this package of support is for you. A 8 week digestive reboot programme includes 3 consultations and access to fact sheets, menu plans and recipes from my library of resources that are most appropriate for your situation.

    On booking: you will be sent a comprehensive in-take questionnaire and diet diary to complete. You will send these to me ahead of your first consultation to allow time for some initial research into your case.

    Initial consultation: This 90 minute consultation focuses on gathering your story, which is an important part of working out where your digestive health is out of balance and where we should focus our attention. We will discuss the most appropriate steps to take and I will share resources and materials developed over my years of experience of supporting digestive health.

    Following the first consultation, I will dedicate time to your case, researching the latest nutrition evidence and working out a bespoke action plan tailored to your needs. This will allow me to suggest targeted nutritional recommendations based on the latest scientific evidence available, with practical steps on how to achieve each recommendation. I will also select laboratory testing to help assess the underlying causes of your symptoms. (Please note that these are not included in the package price, as I make bespoke recommendations for each client).

    Follow-up 1: 2-3 weeks later. During this hour, we’ll review your progress and I’ll answer any questions that may have occurred to you as you begin to make positive change to your diet. We will also review any supplements that you are taking and agree a supplementation plan if appropriate.

    Follow-up 2: 3-4 weeks later. At this session, we will review your progress, how your symptoms are changing and the supplements you’ve been using. We’ll come up with a digestive health plan to support your on-going progress.

    What happens when the programme finishes?
    At the end of the programme, you will hopefully be feeling more comfortable, with a calmer digestive system. Some situations take more unpicking than others however, and I am happy to offer follow-on packages, functional testing and on-going support, tailored to your needs. Nutritional Therapy, as with other areas of healthcare, offers no guarantees of success. However I can guarantee you that I will not give up searching for solutions for you, for as long as we are working together.
