What happens in a consultation?
An initial consultation lasts for 90 minutes. Prior to the consultation you will receive a food diary to fill in. Please complete and return a few days before your appointment. During the initial consultation I will then ask you questions to expand on this information so that we can create a therapy plan that best suits your needs. I may use certain Naturopathic tools to help me create a picture of your heath, and if necessary recommend laboratory tests to deepen the knowledge we have of your body.
Once I have a full picture of the health issues you need support with, I will then advise you on nutritional adjustments, lifestyle changes and, if necessary, supplements that I feel will benefit you.
At the end of the consultation you will be provided with a copy of your nutritional protocol, any supplement and test recommendations and a selection of handouts. Further personalised handouts will be provided by email.
After the initial consultation we can then decide on an appropriate schedule of repeat visits. The amount of consultations necessary depends on your unique situation. The aim of follow-up appointments is to monitor your progress and adjust the protocol to suit your evolving needs. Repeat consultations generally last for 45 minutes to an hour and are usually every 3-4 weeks.
