As your Nutritional Therapist, I will work closely with you to understand your individual health concerns. This may be a chronic health condition which has not responded well to conventional support, such as poor digestion, allergy, food intolerance, stress, low energy (and many more). Equally I can provide guidance to optimise health and wellbeing, such as during pregnancy, breast feeding and weaning. Through discussion we’ll create an individual and practical eating plan and assess the requirement for supplements and functional laboratory testing. With your permission I can also liaise with your GP or medical doctor to help establish the best protocol for your health concerns.
Prior to the initial consultation you will be asked to complete a questionnaire detailing your health concerns, goals and medical history together with a three day food diary. Post consultation, a summary of our discussion with recommendations is emailed to you.
At least one follow up consultation is required, but not necessarily - everyone is different!

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.
