Nutritional Therapy applies nutrition science to help individuals reach
optimum health. It can help with a broad array of needs, supporting clients to achieve
optimum energy levels, gastrointestinal functioning, emotional &
psychological wellbeing, and overall increased physical health. It also
supports individuals with individual requirements around food sensitivites.
Nutritional Therapists recognise each person as an individual, with bespoke needs, and devise individual nutrition plans as such. We are fully educated and trained, insured, and regulated by governing bodies.
Nutritional Therapy dates back to 2500BC. With recognition that a lack of vitamin C contributed to scurvy in 1500BC, more recently science has progressed significantly, evidencing the impact and importance of Nutritional Therapy in all areas of health. Published journals and scientific studies are often used in clinic settings to inform clients around the basis of their interventions.
Nutritional Therapy is perfect for supporting many conditions; managing
symptoms of acute or chronic conditions. It supports the health of all
body systems (digestive, nervous, reproductive, and respiratory, etc.).
Nutritional Therapy aims to identify triggers for health problems and to bring the body back into balance and harmony using real science and evidence based approaches.
It can also help safeguard against future ill health.
A free initial telephone discussion will identify your issues, barriers to
health, and goals for future health.
Initial assessments (1-1.5hrs, available face to face or via skype) will be the “fact finding” exercise; we will explore your symptoms, triggers, health history, family history, lifestyle and environmental factors to identify what might be underlying and contributing to your problems.
You will then be given an individual science based therapy plan, which may include changes to food consumption, hydration, exercise, life style, environment and behavioural habits, as well as suggestions around reading materials, functional testing or supplement advice and any further appropriate referrals (osteopathy, reflexology, counselling, GP, etc.).
Follow up consultations (30 mins- 1 hr) are designed to, review your plan and monitor any change in symptoms or overall health.
After your initial assessment, we can agree on a likely time scale for engagement; optimal health may require only a few follow ups,or may require a longer period of working together. We can also discuss cost at this point.
Nutritional Therapy can help with a broad array of things:
Initial and follow up consultations vary in price, based on the presenting
issues and level of interventions needed.
Initial consultations cost £50-£90
Follow up consultations cost £40-£60
Nutritional Coaching £35- £45
Length of engagement and the number of follow ups you will need will depend on your presenting issues, and how much time you can commit. This will be discussed and agreed upon initial consultation.
It is recommended that you have your first follow up consultation 4-6 weeks after your initial assessment, to review any changes and improvements in symptoms.
