The 12 week health package
Diet and lifestyle change takes time. Nutritional therapy is not a quick fix but if you give it time and stick with it, it can have a transformational effect on your health. Although a lot of my clients feel better very quickly, I would normally allow at least 3 months to see the effects of these positive changes, longer if I am working with someone with chronic disease. It’s like peeling the layers of an onion, working our way round the body to optimise function where we can and giving the body time, to heal itself.
So for this reason, I like to work with clients over a 12 week period. The package I offer includes an initial 1 hour consultation followed by 8 x 30 minute follow up consultations spread over 12 consecutive weeks. Consultation dates and times are prearranged and payment is made at the start of the programme. Consultations take place online, (usually via skype) so its convenient and easy for you to make them.
About your consultations
After booking your consultation package, I will send you a health questionnaire and a 3-day diet diary for you to complete. Please email me your completed forms at least 48 hours before your consultation. The information you provide me with will help keep your consultation as focussed as possible.
The Initial consultation will be one hour long, and will involve delving further into your health history and the general functioning of your body systems. We will look at your whole body health, not just the parts that are suffering with disease or imbalance. This session is more about information gathering so we might not start making changes until the next session, it just depends how much information there is to go through.
This will be followed by 8 x 30 minute follow up consultations which can be done weekly at the start of the package or bi weekly as we move nearer to the end of it. If you like we can join 2 x 30 minute sessions together to make an hour session if you feel you need a longer consultation as the package progresses.
After each consultation i will advise on dietary recommendations, meal ideas, supplement recommendations, lifestyle and test recommendations. Each week we will aim for 2-3 goals to achieve that week, some weeks there might only be one goal, we can work at your pace to make change achievable.
I can provide a letter to your GP requesting further tests if necessary. I will recommend functional medicine tests with private laboratories if i feel they will be of benefit to help understand more about what imbalances may be driving symptoms/disease. These include stool tests, hormone tests and specific nutritional evaluations which enable me to provide support where it’s needed and to help identify the root cause of disease. These tests are an extra cost and range in price from £100 to £500. We would discuss the test options in your consultation so you can decide if you want to do them or not. However, they can provide valuable information about what is going on at a deeper level in the body, so are highly recommended.
Together, we will work out an achievable plan, which will aim to help you reach your health goals.
£1350 paid at the start of the programme
Single consultations are available if you are unsure about whether this is the right approach for you. These will cost £250 and this amount can be discounted off your 12 week programme if you decide to go ahead. During this session, we will discuss your health history, and I will use the functional medicine model to assess which areas that we need to investigate further and maybe some key areas to work on.
If you get to the end of your 12 week programme and need further support, then we can discuss whether it’s best to do a follow up package or with some more complex cases you may want to do another 12 week programme.
In some cases a 12 week programme might not be the right approach for you, if this is the case, I may be able to offer a bespoke package based on your health goals.
Please contact me for more details, or to book a 15 minute discovery call to discuss if this is the right approach for you.
Each year we are required to get our car checked out with an MOT, so I invite you to have a ‘Health MOT’. It’s time for you to look inside at your ‘engine’ and see what’s really happening and maybe get some answers. We can focus on either hormones, gut health or general health. It involves doing a private laborataory test, either a Hormone test (Dutch test), a comprehensive stool test or a blood test which measures 80 different markers relating to all body systems. You complete a health form and a 3 day diet diary and we review these along with the test results in a 90 minute consultation. We start to build a picture of what’s going on in your body, to understand why you are experiencing these symptoms. You will leave that session with an understanding of the areas you need to focus on. Then you can either work through these areas with me on my signature 12 week programme (£250 is taken off the programme price if you go ahead after doing the Health MOT), or you can decide to work alone or with someone else if you prefer. The main thing is, you will learn a lot about your health and knowledge is power.
Prices start at £599 which includes the cost of the test (the cost varies depending on what test you require), the 90 minute consultation and 2 hours of my time away from clinic reviewing your test results and health information.
