What can I expect?
What happens when I book an appointment?
You will be sent a questionnaire to fill in and bring to your first appointment. The questionnaire asks about your symptoms, medical history, diet and lifestyle.
In this session which can last up to two hours, we will discuss what you wish to achieve. We will review your questionnaire, previous and current illnesses and diagnoses. I will ask you more questions to build a better picture of your current health status. You will be able to contribute more information and ask questions. I may suggest some tests using reputable laboratories in the UK, Europe and the USA, so that we are looking at what is really happening rather than guessing. I will give you some advice to start you on your journey to a better quality of life. I will then book you in for the follow-up, which is included in the fee.
At your follow-up appointment which can last up to 1.5 hours, we will review how you are. I will go through my research and findings with you in conjunction with interpreting any test results. Then together we will agree a more detailed personalized programme that takes your lifestyle and food preferences into consideration.
Further appointments may be required especially if you have had symptoms for a long time. These are charged at £35 for 30 mins, on a pro rata basis.
I would always want to meet my clients face-to-face in clinic for their first appointment. If you find it difficult to travel for whatever reason, it is possible to arrange a Facetime, Skype or telephone consultation for your follow-up or subsequent appointments. If you are unable to get into clinic for your first appointment, please contact me and I will help you find a practitioner who is more accessible to you.
Is Nutritional Therapy right for me?
If you are not sure whether this form of therapy is right for you, schedule a free 15 minute, no-obligation chat to help you decide. Please note that I am not able to give any advice at this appointment because I will not have completed a functional assessment.
Included in the fees are the assessment, accompanying research and evaluation, printed information to help with your dietary changes, recipes, general advice, liaison with health professionals involved in your care and referral letters.
15 minute no-obligation appointment: free
First and follow-up appointment: £175.00 payable at the first appointment
Subsequent appointments of 20-60 mins: £24 - £70 pro rata
Virtual appointments incur the same charge as I would be using clinic space for confidentialilty reasons.
There is a £35 deposit to secure all bookings, which is taken off the consultation fee or refunded if the appointment is cancelled at least 48 hours before.
Nutritional Therapy consultations are recognized by some private health plan providers. Please contact your provider for details on how to claim before booking your consultation.
What is not included in the fees?
Functional Tests: These are only recommended if necessary and are charged at cost price wherever possible.
Supplements: I prefer to use natural methods of optimzing your quality of life, such as diet and lifestyle suggestions. However, if necessary, supplements will be recommended from reputable companies where they may usually be obtained with a discount. I do not sell supplements personally. Any commission that I receive from these companies will used towards my continuing professional development (CPD).
