My approach is foremost about working with you in ways which are collaborative and focus on your priorities and needs.
We start by having a free 15 minute consultation to discuss your needs and to assess whether the service is right for you. If it is, then you’ll be sent more information about the service, how the programme is structured and a comprehensive health and dietary questionnaire for you to complete. But if the service isn’t right for you for any reason, don’t worry, we can talk through other options to support you on your health journey.
If you’re going ahead, then the next stage is our 90 minute one to one consultation. In this time you’ll have a full health MOT. We’ll review your health and dietary questionnaire and also look in-depth at your current and past medical and personal history, as well as any external factors which may be exacerbating your health.
Once you return home, I make a full assessment from the information that you’ve provided and compile a report which is sent to you. Along with this you’ll also receive a health and dietary programme which is tailored specifically to your needs.
You can then choose from either:
The Comprehensive Health and Dietary Assessment see more
The Initial Health and Dietary Reward Programme see more
The Comprehensive Health and Wellbeing Reward Programme see more
The Ultimate Health and Dietary Reward Programme see more
What happens after this will depend on your progress and your personal needs. You will certainly have the opportunity to receive further support. There are various follow on options which we can discuss together as required.
