Nutrition Consultations – Whats involved?

Individual consultations can be done in person or over the phone/skype. In person consultations currently take place in Blackrock on Fridays, e-mail me via the booking form below and I will let you know the next available date & time slots.

Phone/Skype sessions are also an option and work equally well. They can be arranged for daytime or evening time on Mon/Tue/Thurs which offers more flexibility. The nutrition advice is e-mailed to you after the phone/skype session

Diet & Lifestyle Advice tailored to your health needs & goals

In a nutshell, what I do is offer personalised diet & lifestyle advice which is tailored to the clients health needs and goals. This includes practical meal suggestions and recipes as well as tips on how to incorporate the changes into your lifestyle. I may also recommend blood tests to have done with your GP and suggest natural supplements if I feel you need extra nutritional support or symptom relief. My aim is to identify and treat the root cause of a health problem, not just treat the symptoms. So for example, if a person is having digestive problems, I will give them dietary advice that will offer immediate relief, but I will also investigate what the underlying causes may be and treat accordingly.

Whole Body Approach

I often offer lifestyle advice alongside my nutrition advice because I really see the body as a whole and therefore take a whole body approach to wellness. For example, a person suffering with IBS or high blood pressure may need to reduce/manage their stress levels along with making dietary changes if they want to achieve real results. As such, I will often offer additional advice in terms of stress management, exercise, organizational tips, motivational exercises, strategies to overcome cravings & emotional eating etc.

Who can benefit from a nutrition consultation?

I see an equal amount of adult men and women of all age groups. Many people present with specific health issues, although a fair amount just come looking for general advice so that they can fine tune their existing diet to look and feel their best.

I would say the most common health concerns I hear from clients are: weight gain/inability to lose weight, low energy/fatigue, sugar cravings, digestive trouble (incl. IBS, constipation, bloating, reflux), allergies, high cholesterol, eczema, psoriasis, low mood/anxiety, joint pain, PMS and pre-diabetes.

How Many Sessions Are Required?

The initial consultation lasts 1 hour. You will be asked to fill out a brief questionnaire before your consultation which is then discussed in further detail during the session. This saves time and helps you get the most out of your session. In order to monitor progress and ensure the recommendations are working for you, it’s usually necessary to return for a follow-up consultation 2 – 4 weeks later which will last about 30-45 minutes.

Many opt to do their follow up session via phone/skype. Most clients will attend between two and four sessions in total spread out over a few months. Saying that, some people are good to go after two sessions, others need or want more long term support, it really depends on the individual and their needs and wants. You are not locked into attending multiple sessions. Ultimately, the aim is to give clients the knowledge and skills to manage their own health, so follow-ups are usually short term.
