1 - Let's learn about you and crystallise your health vision
Prior to your first consultation (up to 2 hrs) you will receive a food diary log, a health questionnaire and a coaching needs questionnaire. This is part and parcel of you increasing your own self-awareness. And as my work begins before our first meeting, this helps me get the full picture, and start to understand the factors which may contributing to your health situation.
Part of your first personal consultation will be spent reviewing your health history, dietary habits and current lifestyle, as well as establishing a clear understanding of your vision for your health and wellbeing, and setting health goals or benchmarks.
2 - Collaboratively designing a recipe for your success
Unless the intervention of a more vigilant short-term therapeutic diet is required to help you rebalance your health, my core approach to health and wellbeing transformation is an iterative process, designed to increase awareness and understanding of the factors which underly your current health status, ease you into positive new habits, and develop your confidence in making intuitive, healthful food and lifestyle choices during the time we work together and beyond.
This means I won't be providing pre-prepared highly-prescriptive, restrictive, unachievable or short-term diet plans. Instead, we will agree together an inspiring custom diet and nutrition plan, all well backed-up with flexible, fast and delicious meal ideas and seasonal recipes that you will love.
Our sessions together will take a holistic approach and integrate wellbeing coaching, so we may also be spending time exploring the barriers to your health and wellbeing in the broader context of your lifestyle, and identifying a number of ways in which you can best make progress, beyond nutrition.
3 - Supporting your progress for long-term success
In subsequent consultations (c. 45 mins) we review your progress, discuss any areas of difficulty and continue to fine-tune your food, nutrition and lifestyle plan according to your needs and situation at the time. If we decide that you keep one, I will feedback on your daily diet diary.
And, we will introduce new recommendations and actions to build on your success and further your progress, whilst providing all the insight, tools and support you need to keep motivated and successfully ingrain new habits.
Once you start feeling brighter, lighter and full of vitality, I know you won't look back.
Consultations may be held face-to-face, or through my online clinic via phone, Skype or FaceTime, to suit your convenience, all with support available via email or text in-between.
We will discuss the type and frequency of support you require during our early conversations, to ensure your package of support will best suit your health goals as well as your availability.
