Is Nutritional Therapy For You?

  • Do you suffer from stress, frequent headaches, digestive symptoms, skin conditions or other health complaints?
  • Are you trying to lose weight but nothing seems to work?
  • Do you want to enhance your sports performance and fitness?
  • Are you planning a family, pregnant, breastfeeding or approaching the menopause?
  • Would you like to support your health and well-being now and for the future?

If you have answered ‘Yes’ to any of the above then Nutritional Therapy is likely to be right for you.

Nutritional Therapy is relevant for individuals with many chronic health conditions as well as those looking to support their long term health and wellbeing.

The Consultation Process

The teaching clinic offers an initial 2 hour nutritional therapy consultation during which we will:

  • Discuss what you would like to gain from the consultation
  • Review your completed health questionnaire with you
  • Explain our findings and recommendations and negotiate a way forward that is unique to you
  • Arrange a suitable date for a 1 hour return visit (6-8 weeks later) to review your programme and offer further guidance.

Following Your Appointment

Following each visit you will be sent recommendations and guidance on how to keep in contact between visits.
