What is nutritional therapy?

The role of a registered nutritional therapist is to understand what the underlying causes are for why you don’t feel your best, then guide you through dietary and lifestyle change to support your return to health.  Your story is central to the process, and once your registered nutritional therapist understands what your goals are and - has a clear understanding of your case - you work together to map out a strategy that is personalised to you.  Nutritional therapy is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach.

Your registered nutritional therapist can use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to your symptoms and health concerns.

Nutritional therapy is recognised as a complimentary medicine, relevant for those with chronic health conditions or looking to enhance their health and wellbeing.

Importantly, nutritional therapy is not a replacement for medical advice, and your registered nutritional therapist will refer you for any ‘red flag’ symptoms to your medical professional.  As a complimentary approach to health, nutritional therapy works best in collaboration with primary medical care.

 

Do you offer telephone or video consultations?

Yes, both telephone and video consultations are possible although ideally your first appointment with us should be face-to-face.

 

What are the costs involved in a nutrition consultation?

We offer a range of different appointment types to suit different budgets and needs. An appointment with one of our supervised 3rd Year DipION students or newly qualified practitioners is cheaper than seeing an experienced registered nutritional therapist. An updated price list can be found on our clinic page.

Note that we sometimes recommend supplements or tests with private laboratories, so these are additional costs that you might want to consider. These are, of course, optional extras.

Payment for your appointment is taken at the time of booking.  Our cancellation policy can be found here.

 

Are there any additional costs?

There may be additional costs, but it depends on your individual case and budget. For example, if a test is not available on the NHS we can refer you to a private laboratory. Functional nutrition tests can range in price from £40 to £300.

If we recommend supplements then that is also an additional cost to be aware of.

Our job is to work within your budget; there is no expectation on our part and you guide us.
