Consultations & Testing
Should you wish to book a consultation, please contact me by either telephone or email. The initial consultation can either be conducted at the address supplied in the contacts screen, or home visits are available. Should an Internet or telephone consultation be more convenient this can also be discussed. Daytime, evening and Saturday morning appointments can be confirmed.
Prior to attending the consultation I will send you a detailed questionnaire, which will ask questions relating to diet, lifestyle and medical history, you will also be asked to supply a 3-day diet diary that is representative of your normal dietary intake. This information is necessary in order that an individual programme to suit your needs can be devised. I would ask that if possible this questionnaire be returned prior to attending the consultation, this can be returned either by e-mail or by post.
The initial consultation - Allow approximately one hour
During the first consultation the contents of the questionnaire including health concerns will be discussed. Further questions will be asked in order that I can obtain a further understanding of your requirements and expectations. An explanation will be given as to the possible underlying causes of your illness and symptoms and documented for your future reference. The final part of the consultation will involve a discussion and documentation of possible lifestyle and dietary changes that may benefit your symptoms.
Any issues discussed during the consultation together with all document produced will be treated in the strictest confidence.
Follow up consultations – Allow approximately 45 minutes
