I believe in a personalized and tailored program considering that everyone is unique and respond to treatments in a different way. I believe in naturopathic nutrition which combines the science of biochemistry and nutrition with natural therapies and lifestyle changes to help maintain a good state of health. I strongly recommend a long-lasting nutritional program instead of fast short-term diets which are not sustainable in the long term. My approach is holistic, meaning work with the person as a whole, addressing the underlying imbalances that may be impacting on health, rather than just acting on symptoms. My protocols are tailored to each person’s unique needs, taking into account lifestyle, ethics and food preferences. Where necessary, diet and lifestyle advice are combined with a program of supplements, herbs and natural remedies aimed at addressing any imbalances.
ABOUT THE CONSULTATION
What to expect
An initial exploratory consultation lasts for 75 minutes. Prior to the consultation you will receive a food diary and health questionnaire to fill in. Please complete and return these to my email a few days before your appointment. During the initial consultation I will then ask you questions to expand on this information so that we can create a therapy plan that best suits your needs. I may use certain Naturopathic tools to help me create a picture of your heath, and if necessary, recommend laboratory tests to deepen the knowledge we have of your body.
Once I have a full picture of the health issues you need support with, I will then advise you on nutritional adjustments, lifestyle changes and supplements that I feel will benefit you. A copy of your nutritional protocol, any supplement and test recommendations and a selection of handouts will be provided by email.
The amount of consultations necessary depends on your unique situation. The aim of follow-up appointments is to monitor your progress and adjust the protocol to suit your evolving needs. Repeat consultations generally last for 30 to 45 minutes and are usually every 3-4 weeks.

Information about health conditions (*)
Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.
