What can you expect from your appointments? Only the best!
Consultation 1 - Personal assessment
Summary; you talk, I listen (make notes), ask questions, we discuss.... the journey begins
Duration - 1 hour
Prior to your initial consultation you will receive a detailed questionnaire and a 3 day food diary for completion. You simply bring this information along to your first visit. We will spend time together gathering further detail around the information you have provided. This process is an integral part of building a thorough picture of your past/present health, dietary habits and lifestyle. I will assess potential nutrient deficiencies and may suggest functional clinical tests, to ascertain underlying factors that may be hindering your health. Preliminary dietary advice will also be provided. After this consultation we will arrange to meet approximately 2 weeks later where you will receive your personalised nutrition programme.
Assessment also provides the basis for referral to a licensed physician or other healthcare professional if necessary.
Consultation 2 - Personal programme
Summary; I talk, you listen (no need to make notes, I've done it for you!) ask questions, we discuss ....the journey just gets better
Duration - 1 - 1.5 hours
Having thoroughly evaluated all the information provided during consultation 1, I will discuss my findings, providing you with a comprehensive and detailed explanation regarding your current health concerns in relation to your nutritional intake/nutritional requirements and dietary excesses/shortfalls. From this analysis I will have composed a realistic, individually tailored nutrition programme that will focus on addressing your main considerations. You will receive your personal nutritional file containing your nutrition and health report, fact sheets and practical shopping/eating guidelines. A supplement programme specifically formulated for your individual requirements, may be advised. Non invasive clinical tests may be recommended either during consultation 1 or consultation 2.
Consultation 3 - Follow up assessment
Summary; Tweaks and changes
Duration - 1 hour
This consultation enables assessment of how the nutritional programme is benefiting you, looking closely at whether changes are required and realistically what does and doesn't work for you. Alterations to any supplements advised may be required. At this stage some clients require minimal changes others will require more comprehensive changes to their programme dependant on their health concerns, improvements and compliance.
Parting is such sweet sorrow....how many visits?
Consultation attendance is dependent on a variety of key factors such as reasons for visit, your compliance and duration/complication of health concerns. For some, 2 consultations are sufficient whilst on average 3-4 consultations may be necessary. In some cases nutritional therapy can bring immediate improvements and for others gradual; you may find that you experience initial improvements that then slow down or even the reverse of this scenario.
Equipping you with gems of nutrition knowledge means you can walk away making informed choices, with an understanding of the intrinsic link between health and nutrition!
The 3 C's......Consistent Client Care
Between appointments you can be assured that you are welcome to contact myself at NutriChoice either via email or telephone with further enquiries or concerns. I recognise that key to client compliance and success can be additional support and motivation.
