Alice is a registered nutritional therapist and trained chef working in the area of female health, pre-and post conception, and has, for the past ten years been working with children in the first 1,000 days.
Starting children on their food journey, and working with families that have intolerances or fussy eaters, is an an area that Alice is particularly interested in, with one-on-one sessions and group healthy eating and weaning workshops in the kitchen.
Alice also has a particular interest in fertility and weight management in women with one-on-one sessions and practical healthy cooking lessons.

My services include:
One-on-one consultations: which can include in the package, a practical cooking session to make the recipes discussed in the consultation and a visit to the supermarket to make simple changes to the weekly shop.
Group & individual cooking workshops covering the following topics: weight management, eating in pre-conception, eating in pregnancy, weaning and fussy eaters.

Pre-consultation: This includes a 70minutes face-to-face meeting; I will also speak with you prior to the consultation, over the phone to fully understand your individual requirements. I will also ask you to complete a 3 day food diary, allowing me to analyse your dietary intake and gather an enhanced understanding of your nutritional needs.
Initial consultation. discussing factors that may be contributing to your current health issues, we will work together to make a plan working to your needs and goals. This will include a menu plan designed for your needs, abilities and budget.
Follow-up consultations. I will support you every step of the way to achieving your goals and succeeding in your health journey. I usually recommend you attend at least one follow-up consultation between four and six weeks after we first meet so we can monitor your progress.
The number of subsequent follow-up appointments is unique to each individual, however most clients see me for 2-3 follow-up sessions at roughly four-weekly intervals.
