Nutritional Therapy doesn’t just tackle the symptoms, but looks for the root of health problems through professional analysis and assessment. It combines health-related sciences in a natural approach to maintaining good health. Of course it’s all about food and lifestyle, because these factors have a profound impact on the way we feel.
I am an experienced Nutritional Therapist based near Colchester, and work principally within the North Essex-Suffolk area. I work alongside clients to bring positive change in their quality of life. Together we look at enhancing or improving their food and lifestyle choices, drawing on functional testing and supplementation when needed.
I also work as Lecturer for the Nutritional Therapy Diploma course at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition, London.
How a consultation works:
Before a consultation, you will be asked to fill out a detailed Health Questionnaire and food diary. This helps me assess your general health, family history and dietary habits, along with any health issue you are seeking help on. It means we can be more focused during the actual consultation.
During the consultation, I will gather some more detail on your health and diet. With your goal in mind, we can link your symptoms to any imbalances. Which lays the groundwork for an action plan…
We will then work together to come up with an eating plan and lifestyle ideas that you find motivational and achievable. It will include suggestions for dietary and lifestyle changes. Nutritional supplements and further tests (non-invasive functional testing) will be recommended if needed.
At least one follow-up appointment is usually advisable 4-6 weeks on, to review your nutritional plan and see how you are progressing.
