Fees

Initial consultation is £40 (lasts about an hour) and any follow up required is £25.

I am happy to see clients outside normal working hours if that suites them better, so this includes weekends and evenings. Appointments do not have to  be in person but could be by email, phone or skype/Appear-in.

There is  a courtyard outside the office , with plenty of parking space.

What a consultation involves

I will find out the background to your condition, ask for a diet history and what asset_5a653889542ab.pngsupplements you take, if any. I will ask you about your lifestyle, such as how active you are; I may also ask about your family/home situation and whether you are the cook!

I will want to know whether your condition is recent or long standing and whether you have tried to make changes to your diet already or been given any other advice about your diet and lifestyle.

I use behaviour change techniques, so I like us to find solutions together and explore barriers to you changing your diet and lifestyle to help your condition.

  • Only dietitians registered with the Health Professions Council (HPC) can use the legally protected title ‘dietitian’.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a nutritionist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the nutritionist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access Yes

I'm happy to see people face to face or alternatively we can consult remotely. Wheel chairs can access my home office.
