What is Nutritional Therapy?

As a qualified and registered Nutritional Therapist, I work with clients to improve symptoms which they are currently experiencing, to support pre-existing medical conditions, or simply to work towards specific goals which clients may have.

Nutritional Therapy is based on a holistic approach to health; supporting the body’s natural biological processes through personalised nutrition, lifestyle recommendations and supplementation where necessary.  Each client is biochemically individual; the combination of genetic, epigenetic and environmental variations allow a Nutritional Therapist to consider all of the body’s organ systems and how they interact with each other, determining which areas may benefit from additional support.

It is important to note that as a Nutritional Therapist, I work alongside medical professionals; Nutritional Therapy is a form of complementary medicine and should not be a complete replacement for medical advice.  I work closely with GPs, consultants and other complementary therapists such as acupuncturists, counsellors, osteopaths etc. to provide a full service to clients.

An initial consultation typically lasts 90 minutes.  I ask clients to complete a questionnaire prior to our first appointment, which will include medical history, family medical history and general health questions including food and lifestyle routines and specifics aims the client may have.  I will also ask clients to keep a food diary prior to a consultation.  During the initial consultation, we will work through each body system and I will ask a series of questions which will enable me to build a thorough picture of what may be happening within the body and identify areas for support.  I then work with the client to produce a personalised nutrition, lifestyle and supplement plan for them to follow for a specific period of time.  I may also recommend a referral to the client’s GP for further tests, or suggest private laboratory testing.

At follow up appointments, which typically last 60 minutes, we will discuss and review the plan in detail as well as any changes in symptoms.  We identify successful initiatives, challenges and then use this information to revise the various plans.  This process is then repeated for future consultations as part of an continued relationship.
