My approach is foremost about working with you in ways which are collaborative and focus on your priorities and needs.
If you have already decided that you want to do one of my programmes, then simply call me to book an appointment. Otherwise, it may help you to understand how the process works:
We start by having a free 30 minute consultation to discuss your needs and to assess whether the service is right for you. If it is, then we will arrange a comprehensive consultation appointment and you will be sent information about the service, how the programme is structured and a 12 page health and dietary questionnaire for you to complete.
If however, at the end of the free 30 minute consultation you decide that this service is not right for you, don’t worry. We can talk through other options that may be more beneficial and offer you the type of support that you need.
Choosing the right programme to suit your needs is very important, so we will take some time to discuss this. 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
The next stage is a 90 minute one to one consultation. During this time we will review your health and dietary questionnaire and also talk through your current and past medical and personal history. In addition, we will also consider any external factors which may be exacerbating your health.
I then make a full assessment from the information that you have provided and compile a report which is sent to you. Along with this you will also receive a health and dietary programme which is tailored specifically to your needs.
This forms the start of your programme
Throughout your programme, we will meet at interim periods to review your health and your progress and to assess if any component of your plan needs to be altered. However, in between that time you can contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
What happens after this will depend on your progress and your personal needs. You will certainly have the opportunity to receive further support and there are various follow on options that we can discuss as required.
