One-to-one consultations with either direct face to face or virtual appointments. Providing individual advice, guidance and support.
Your consultation may be a one-off, or may be followed by two or three more sessions. We discuss and listen to your concerns, help identify your needs and develop a treament plan.
At the first consultation we discuss with you the changes you want to achieve with your health and nutrition. We complete a nutrition assessment, discuss your relevant medical history and any medication, lifestyle factors and any factors that may affect your dietary intake and food preferences.
From your assessment we identify and suggest dietary modifications and changes that can help you. We will provide you with a treatment plan with practical recommendations. These are to help you implement the changes that will be of benefit and enable you to achieve the outcomes you are looking for.
During your consultation we discuss with you any factors, that may make changes challenging and suggest possible alternative options that can help. Usually we can give you answers straight away. If not, we will investigate further to provide you the answers.
