Nutritional Therapy in Worcester
Weekday afternoon appointments available only
My Special interests are:
- bloating, IBS, heartburn/indigestion
- diarrhoea or constipation (or both!)
- food intolerances (food allergies)
- low energy, stress, underactive thyroid
- skin conditions such as acne
The initial consultation will cover questions about significant areas of your health, family history, lifestyle and diet/nutrition and clarification of your ultimate health goals will be identified. Once all this information has been gathered, a personalised nutrition program is put together for you that will be posted or emailed within a few days of your appointment. This will incorporate:
- Detailed dietary recommendations
- Supplement recommendations, if appropriate.
- Meal and recipe suggestions
- Lifestyle guidance
- Recommended tests, if appropriate
- Email support between consultations to help you stay motivated.
At these sessions, your progress is assessed by looking at how your symptoms have changed and results from any tests that have been performed will be discussed. Your nutrition programme will be re-assessed and modified to ensure that you continue to progress towards improved health and ultimately meeting your goals.
WHAT IS NUTRITIONAL THERAPY?
Registered Nutritional Therapist (Nutritionist) practitioners use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns.
Practitioners consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
Practitioners never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their medical professional.
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 get help with their symptoms and for example may have been diagnosed with IBS.

Terms and Conditions
Cancellation Policy: 24 hours notice is required, after which the full consultation fee will be charged.
The Nutrition Program lasts 8 weeks.
The number of sessions required is very individual, but on an average basis, 1-3 sessions are carried out, and this is why I have set up the above program. They are generally 4 weeks apart, however this all depends on your health issue and this can be discussed with me at your initial consultation. Both consultations within the program need to be taken within 12 weeks of the first consultation. The Nutrition Program fee is non-refundable.
Cash or cheques only are accepted as payment at the initial consultation or a BACS payment may be paid before the initial consultation.
Before the initial consultation, you will be asked to fill out a comprehensive nutrition questionnaire and send it back to me by email or post.
Please note that advice is not intended to replace that of a medically qualified professional. You should always check with your GP prior to taking any natural health product if you are currently on medication or have an existing health concern.
