MY APPROACH TO NUTRITIONAL THERAPY

In nutritional therapy we apply nutritional science to promote an individual’s health and performance. Therapists use evidence-based diet and lifestyle recommendations, tailored to the individual’s unique circumstances, to help support the body towards maintaining health.

 

My approach to nutritional therapy aims to address the whole picture. You’re so much more than the symptoms you’re experiencing, and I aim to work with you to uncover the different factors which might be affecting your health and wellbeing. 

 

We receive conflicting messages about food and health, day in and day out. I aim to cut through this confusion with clear and easy-to-implement advice. There’s no one-size-fits-all diet. Instead, I aim to show you the possible links between your particular diet and lifestyle and the symptoms you’re experiencing. I translate nutritional science into easy-to-understand advice tailored to your circumstances.

 

I don’t advocate extreme diets or ‘clean eating’. I take a pragmatic approach to nutrition and work with my clients to devise a plan which is enjoyable and has results. Primarily I recommend dietary changes, but sometimes supplements may be recommended, in which case I will explain the different options and help you source them as needed.

 

I am particularly focused on the role of nutrition in mental wellbeing, cognitive function, and fatigue however, I believe there is a role for nutritional therapy for the full spectrum of health concerns. Nutritional therapy not a replacement for medical advice. I frequently work alongside medical professionals to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.

ALL ABOUT NUTRITIONAL THERAPY

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE IN PRACTICE?

BEFORE WE MEET

After booking, you will be sent a short questionnaire and food diary which I ask you to return 48 hours before your initial consultation. Covering the reasons, you’re coming to see a nutritional therapist, your goals and any medications you’re currently taking, the questionnaire aims to help me understand a little bit about you before we meet. The food diary will also give me an insight into your typical eating patterns, that’s why it’s important to be really honest here.

 

Lastly, I’ll send you a client agreement which provides you with more details on the session and explains my obligations to you, my client.

A TYPICAL SESSION

When we first meet we will discuss your health concerns, medical history and goals. Consultations are confidential and take place either face-to-face or via Skype, whichever works best for you.

 

I use a wide range of methods to help identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may be contributing to your health concerns. This involves taking a very detailed medical history, understanding your relationship with food (and likes and dislikes!) and what you want to achieve from working together. I may recommend some tests to help provide a more detailed picture of a certain aspect of your health, many of these should be obtainable through your GP.

AFTER WE MEET

Following this I will develop a personalised plan which will be sent to you via email. This plan will be unique to you and include diet and lifestyle recommendations. I may recommend supplements, if your health profile suggest this may be useful. Most importantly, your plan will be realistic and achievable. I also offer a 15-minute phone call to discuss your plan and answer any questions you may have.

 

Follow up sessions will take around 45 minutes and follow a similar format. How often I recommend meeting will depend on your case, but typically it will be 4-6 weeks between our initial consultation and follow-up. We will identify what’s worked, what hasn’t and update the plan as needed.
