The Consultation Process

Initial Consultation

Once your initial consultation has been booked, you will receive an email containing a health questionnaire, including a 3 day food diary to be completed and sent back prior to your initial consultation. A list of any medications and supplements currently taken will also be required. You may also be asked to submit recent laboratory testing results if applicable.

 

The duration of the initial consultation is about 90 - 120 minutes and comprises of a comprehensive health evaluation. This includes an in depth assessment of current symptoms, key systems within the body, family history, medical history, and current dietary and lifestyle habits. 

Based on the information gathered in the initial consultation I will develop a personalised naturopathic nutrition health plan to support you with your health concerns, which includes dietary, lifestyle and supplement recommendations. In some cases, further lab testing may be recommended to gain a deeper understanding of potential biochemical imbalances that may be contributing to your health symptoms.

I also offer a 30 minute post-consultation call, once you have received your plan, to go over any questions you may having regarding any specific recommendations in the plan.

Follow-up consultations

The follow up consultation will take about 45 - 60 minutes. During this time we will review your progress with the initial plan and revisit your initial health goals and symptoms. Testing requested in the previous consultation will also be reviewed together here so that recommendations in the follow-up plan can further be tailored to your individual needs. 

A follow up consultation is generally recommended 4 weeks after our initial consultation, however this can vary depending on your health concern or goals. In addition the number of follow up consultations recommended also varies, as this is largely determined on the severity your health concerns and how long have have been experiencing the associated symptoms for. In some cases only 1 follow up is necessary, whereas in more complex, chronic conditions further follow ups may be required to address the underlying imbalances. From then on, the health plan will be adjusted in subsequent follow up visits according to the your clinical progress.

 

After your health evaluation in the initial consultation we will discuss what time-frame one can realistically expect to see results and how many follow-up consultations are recommended and agree on a plan together. 

Each follow up consultation is an opportunity to dig deeper and devise a truly personalised health plan that suits your physiology and lifestyle. The primary goal is eventually to provide a health plan that supports your health long-term.
