What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health and peak performance. Nutritional Therapy can identify potential nutritional imbalances and how these contribute to symptoms. This approach allows the nutritional therapist to work with people on many levels by addressing nutritional imbalances and supporting the body towards maintaining health.

Why use Nutritional Therapy?

Some people simply want to check that they are on the right track with regard to healthy eating. Others may want to lose weight or get help with their symptoms. Nutritional Therapists recognise that each person is an individual with unique requirements and take time to define a personalised nutrition plan rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach.

What to expect from a consultation?

A nutritional therapist’s work starts with a client consultation that involves:

  • Detailed analysis of your dietary and nutritional intake.
  • Detailed health and family case history.
  • A strategy for health – linking the symptoms to nutritional imbalances and providing support and encouragement to change diet and lifestyle.
  • Action Plan - personalised advice for diet and lifestyle changes.
  • Supplement Programme - details of any recommended nutritional supplements.
  • The recommendation of non-invasive clinical tests if required, to help ascertain any suspected underlying conditions
What will i expect before my first consultation?

Before the first consultation, Jayne will email you a health and nutrition questionnaire, along with a 3 day diet sheet to be completed before you arrive

How long will the initial consultation last?

The consultation usually lasts 60 to 90 minutes, and in this time Jayne will ask detailed questions about current health concerns, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment, medical history, family history, lifestyle, levels of physical activity, use of medication and supplements and diet.
Jayne will then evaluate your individual needs and use the extensive evidence base for nutritional science to develop a personalised, safe and effective nutrition and lifestyle programme.

Initial Consultations

On booking your initial appointment you will be sent a detailed health questionnaire which I ask you to fill in and return prior to our meeting. A full case history will be taken and our first appointment will usually last an hour where I will create an individual plan for you. This will be achieved together with any changes agreed between both of us.

Will I need a follow up consultation?

Yes. Jayne wants to see if you are happy with what changes she has put in place, and to see if she can improve on this and make any necessary adjustments.
Follow up consultations are generally 4-6 weeks later. Further follow-ups may be required depending on each individual situation.

Follow up appointments

A follow up appointment will usually be arranged for 4-6 weeks after the initial appointment; these appointments are usually 30 mins and allow us to look at what has been successful and what other changes may need to be made.
Depending on the nature of the problems 2-3 follow up appointments may be required, however I am very happy if you only have to come back once as it means I have done my job well.

How long will the follow up consultations take?

30 minutes. Further follow-ups may be required depending on each individual situation.

How many follow up consultations will I need?

I am happy if there is as little as possible as it means I have achieved what I set out to do, and that is get you better.
However, the number of follow-ups required is very much dependent on each client’s individual health symptoms and goals.

Can I expect any additional costs?

Jayne may need to do laboratory tests to assess further investigation. Laboratory testing helps to identify the root causes of health symptoms so we know the exact problem and tackle it directly.
Tests included, for example, could be food intolerance tests, hormone profiles or parasite testing.
Although testing is an additional cost, it usually results in a faster and more successful outcome.
