The Consultation Process
As a nutritional therapist, I use a functional medicine and evidence based approach to investigate my client’s health concerns and symptoms. These will include your own history, the role of genetics, your environment and lifestyle to revive your health and restore your vitality.
Prior to our first consultation, I will send you a comprehensive health and lifestyle questionnaire which will cover your health history, symptoms, lifestyle, goals, medications and a food diary. I will require these forms to be completed and emailed back to me at least 48 hours before your consultation.
Before we meet
The Initial Consultation takes place over 1-1.5 hours, where we will explore the health questionnaire further, chat about your health goals and priorities, discuss food and lifestyle and work together collaboratively to agree on a bespoke, personalised nutrition and lifestyle program just for you. This may include some testing, either via referral to your GP or functional testing privately. I will make sure you know the reasons behind the suggested changes and answer your questions. I will work with you so you feel supported.
The Follow up consultation is the same principle as the Initial but will last approx 30 minutes. Here we will discuss your progress, your successes , review your health goals and concerns, analyse test results, adjust the plan as appropriate and focus on new goals. In between times I will be researching your case and investigating your health concerns. I will offer you support and encouragement to help you achieve your health goals.
