Nutrition and lifestyle coaching for people like you
Changing habits and behaviours can take time.
Our brains are hardwired to follow the path of least resistance. It is far easier for our brains to repeat a previous pattern of behaviour than to chose a new path, “neurons that fire together, wire together”. This is how habits form. It can take anything from one month right up to a year for a new behaviour to become a habit, for the new neural pathways to wire themselves together. This is called neural plasticity and it is how our brains and behaviours can change over time.
Nutritional Therapy is most effective when we work together over a period of time. We begin with an initial health assessment. Following this assessment we choose the best way forward for you.
Initial Health Assessment
This is an opportunity for you to tell your story. I will ask you a lot of questions in order to help me understand what may be contributing to your current health picture. Together, we establish your goals and come up with an appropriate, (simple and achievable), action plan.
I may recommend testing, either through your GP or through a private lab. The results of these tests feed into our follow up sessions, helping us to create a more individualised nutritional and lifestyle programme for you.
Follow up sessions
It is by working together that we find simple and achievable solutions to help you achieve your goals. It is impossible to do everything at once, we aim for progress not perfection. Working together helps you stay motivated. We monitor symptoms at every meeting in order to measure our progress and figure out the best next step for you.
Appointments are normally spaced two to four weeks apart, depending on preference. Some people may only need one or two follow up sessions, others may require a much longer programme of support.
For eating disorders we work together weekly, normally for a minimum of ten weeks. Weekly sessions attract a 15% discount off the prices listed below.

Functional tests provide information on how well the body is working. Sometimes this can help provide a more targeted nutritional and lifestyle intervention. Some tests are available through your GP, others only privately. Private testing incurs additional costs, but all tests are optional. The following provide examples of the type of private tests I may recommend, depending on your health goals and presenting symptoms:
The above prices provide an indication of cost and are subject to change. Complex tests may incur an additional interpretation fee but this will always be discussed in advance.
Please note that Nutritional Therapy is a complementary medicine and is not a replacement for medical care. I believe in working closely with the medical profession in order to achieve the best possible health outcomes for my clients.
