About me

Jane helps her patients identify those areas they need to address if they wish to regain or maintain optimal health. Recommendations to reach this goal will include dietary advice tailored to the individual's needs, specific nutritional supplements where necessary, exercise and other lifestyle suggestions.

Having taken the patient's full medical history, advice on which foods will be beneficial to each individual and which would best be avoided forms the heart of the nutritional programme that they will be given at the end of the consultation. Menu ideas and recipes are also provided.

Jane works using nutritional and lifestyle approaches to support:

  • Optimal energy levels
  • Healthy blood sugar balance
  • General wellbeing when faced with the pressures of a modern lifestyle
  • Tolerance to a broad range of foods
  • Weight management

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 Unspecified
