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. 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. It is also part and parcel of raising your own self-awareness - the first step in addressing old habits or making new ones.
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 approach to helping people elevate their health and wellbeing 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, you will learn the principles you need to adopt for your short and long term success, and discover exactly how to apply those principles in the context of your own daily life. This way we build together an inspiring and flexible custom eating plan, backed-up with fast and delicious meal ideas and seasonal recipes that you will love. And, if required, this may be complemented with a personalised supplement plan.
Our sessions together will take a holistic approach and integrate wellbeing coaching (dependent on your individual requirements). So, as well as focussing on nutrition and eating habits, expect to spend time exploring your relationship with food or discovering solutions to your health and wellbeing challenges in the broader context of your life.
3 - Supporting your progress for long-term success
In subsequent consultations (c. 45 mins) we will review your progress, and continue to fine-tune or build upon your food, nutrition and lifestyle choices according to your needs and situation at the time. And I will continue to deliver all the insight, tools and support you need to help keep motivation flowing.
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.
