CORONAVIRUS 2020: IMPORTANT UPDATE
I am doing both online and in-person consultations in-clinic. In clinic, you will be required to complete a screening questionnaire and consent form prior to the appointment as well as being required to wear a mask or face-covering throughout the entire consultation.
A food diary and basic health questionnaire will be sent to fill in and return (at least 3 days prior to the consultation) to assist in the assessment process and allow for some initial research into your case.
The initial consultation will take up to 90 minutes, where a thorough case history will be taken and details of any health goal or preferred outcome. It is important to know about your whole life – past and present; including medical history and any treatments used, dietary patterns, digestion, as well as lifestyle factors such as sleeping, exercise, emotional and physical stressors, or major life events. Tongue and nail analysis, alongside basic iridology are also incorporated into the consultation to look at inherent strengths and weakness which may help in the assessment process.
An initial therapeutic assessment will be given at the end of the consultation as well as dietary and lifestyle recommendations designed to help relieve the presenting symptoms and any nutritional imbalances that may be present. The aim is to empower the client with enough information to want to make these changes (often just small adjustments), so that they can take control of their health in the long term. Supplements may also be recommended at this time.
Follow-up consultations will take up to an hour. I recommend at least one follow-up approximately a month after the initial consultation where we can monitor progression and make any adjustments to the protocol as necessary to compliment the clients changing needs.
Appointment packages are available consisting of an initial consultation and 2 follow-ups. Many conditions respond well within the first few consultations, but some longer-term or chronic conditions may require further support and if necessary a more comprehensive package can be designed.
