What Is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy uses nutrition science to promote health, peak performance and individual care. Registered Nutritional Therapists use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. Each person is recognised as an individual with unique requirements and therefore time is taken to define personalised nutrition plans rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach
What Conditions Can Nutritional Therapy Support?
Research has shown that nutrition and lifestyle approaches to healthcare can support the health of all the major systems of the body (skeletal, muscular, nervous, respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive, excretory, endocrine, immune, reproductive and integumentary [skin, hair, nails])
Where Are Your Clinics?
What Payment Methods Do You Accept?
Individual Consultations or Packages can be paid for via PayPal, online bank transfer or cheque in advance. Please note that preparatory work in advance of your consultation- analysis of your health questionnaire, developing your Action Plan and if necessary extra research- is not undertaken until funds have cleared. Special arrangements can occasionally be made for clients who wish to pay by cash or cheque on the day of their consultation.
Are Your Services Covered By Private Medical Insurance?
CNHC registered Nutritional Therapists are recognised for reimbursement for Nutritional Therapy with a number of private health plan providers such as Health Shield and Westfield Health. Please check with your individual provider.
How Many Consultations Will I Need?
For most people, 1 to 3 consultations are usually sufficient, although this will vary according to individual needs and circumstances.
Do You Offer Telephone Or Skype Consultations?
Both Skype and Telephone consultations are offered.
Will The Programme Be Difficult To Follow?
The benefits of providing you with a personalised dietary and lifestyle programme is that it is in fact practical and achievable for you- and within your comfort zone. The entire programme is adjusted to suit your needs so that when you leave the consultation you feel confident that you have an action plan that will work for you.
What Is Your Cancellation Policy?
I understand that unexpected situations can arise and that sometimes appointments need to be cancelled and rescheduled. However, I ask that in fairness you give me a full 2 working days’ notice. Appointments are subject to a 50% cancellation charge with less than 2 working days’ notice and 100% cancellation charge if the cancellation is on the day of the appointment. This not only covers clinic fees, lost appointment availability but also my time spent in advance of your appointment analysing your health questionnaire, developing your Action Plan and researching where necessary.
What Is The Difference Between A Dietician And A Nutritional Therapist?
Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Registered Nutritional Therapists use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. They will also frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client’s care to explain any Nutritional Therapy programme that has been provided. Nutritional Therapy is relevant for individuals with chronic and medical conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.
Dietitians work principally in the National Health Service. They use the science of nutrition to devise eating plans for patients to treat medical conditions. They also work to promote good health by helping to facilitate a positive change in food choices amongst individuals, groups and communities. Only Dietitians and Registered Nutritional Therapists are trained in clinical practice to give one-on-one personal health advice.
