How do the consultations work?
The consultations take place on a one-to-one basis. Before the first consultation you'll be sent a detailed questionnaire to fill in about your symptoms, health history, diet and lifestyle.
The initial consultation can take between an hour and a quarter and an hour and a half. During the first part of the consultation we'll discuss your health and diet in detail. Then we will work together to agree a strategy that is tailored to improve your health, including:
If necessary, functional tests will be recommended to investigate your health concerns further.
Follow-up consultations last for 45-60 minutes. The purpose of the follow-up consultations is to monitor progress since your last visit, explain any functional test results and update your strategy to ensure that your programme is working effectively for you.
What if I have questions between consultations?
E-mail and telephone support is available between consultations within reason.
How much do the consultations cost?
An initial consultation is £75 for 75-90 minutes and a follow-up consultation is £50 for 45-60 minutes. Nutritional supplements and functional tests are not included in this price.
What if I need to cancel an appointment?
Cancellations with less than 24 hrs notice are charged at 50% of the normal consultation fee. Cancellations with less than 12 hrs notice are subject to the full consultation fee. There is no charge for cancellations with more than 24 hrs notice.

What's the difference between a Registered Nutritional Therapist, Nutritionist and a Dietitian?
Most Dietitians work within the NHS, so you usually need to be a hospital patient or have a GP referral to see one.
Nutritionists are scientists and usually work in academic research, the food industry or the media. Unlike Dietitians and Registered Nutritional Therapists, Nutritionists are not generally trained in clinical practice and don't see clients.
Registered Nutritional Therapy is regarded as a complementary therapy. Working primarily in private practice, Registered Nutritional Therapists are interested in the root cause of health problems and aim to help their client holistically.
