Health & Nutrition Consultations

Your partner in holistic health

Whether you want to elevate your energy, boost your mental clarity, address digestive or other symptoms or heath concerns, understand how to eat optimally for your body, or prevent future health problems, I can develop an evidence-based nutrition, lifestyle and wellbeing plan tailored to your unique goals and needs.

Each of us deserves to be nurtured and supported. I’ll spend considerably more time with you than a conventional medical practitioner, listening to you and understanding your health challenges and objectives. I’ll work with you to develop simple, achievable health goals, guide and empower you to make sustainable changes, monitor your progress – and support you every step of the way. Together, we’ll work to create your optimal health and wellbeing.

Delivering the best experience for you

Typically, an initial consultation with a natural health practitioner can be very long, as it includes thorough case-taking, immediate development of the treatment plan and supplement prescription, and the explanation of these to the client. This approach can be quite overwhelming as the session is long and there is a lot of information to take in. It also doesn’t allow the practitioner time to conduct further research before recommending a treatment plan.

I work differently to reduce overwhelm and provide you with a better experience. See The Consultation Process below for details.

The consultation process

Your journey with Kaleidoscope Wellbeing will include the following steps. Expand each step for more information.

FREE Health Strategy Session for New Clients

Before we work together, it’s important that we discuss your unique health situation and objectives, so I invite all new clients to book a free Health Strategy Session with me. This session will allow me to determine if I can help you. It’s also your opportunity to assess whether I’m right for you. Either way, we’ll discuss the strategies which could make a difference to you, and get you started on your health journey. Our discussion will take 20-45 minutes, depending on your circumstances.

Please note: This session is for new clients only. As a detailed case history is required for me to provide tailored health recommendations, I can provide general advice only in this session.

Welcome and Pre-Consultation Questionnaires

When you book your first consultation, I’ll send you a Welcome Pack containing information about Kaleidoscope Wellbeing and how we’ll work together. The pack will also include a Client Intake Questionnaire and a 3-Day Diet & Lifestyle Diary, which I require you to fill out and send back to me prior to your first consultation.

Initial Consultation: Information Gathering and Subsequent Research

The initial consultation is all about information gathering. I will ask you many questions about all aspects of your health and wellbeing and do lots of listening to develop a 360° understanding of you. I’ll then recommend some simple changes to your diet and lifestyle that you can get started with.

The Initial Consultation will take 75-90 minutes.

Following the consultation, I will map out the facts I have gathered both before and during your Initial Consultation, to see what’s going on for you and uncover the underlying drivers of any health issues. I’ll conduct additional research and identify any functional pathology tests which may be needed. I’ll also develop your Report of Findings and evidence based Treatment Plan to correct biochemical imbalances and support your body’s natural healing ability.

The cost for the Initial Consultation includes reviewing your pre-consultation questionnaire and food diary before your consultation, analysis of all the gathered information, research, development of functional testing recommendations following your consultation, and development of your tailored Report of Findings and Treatment Plan.

Second Consultation: Report of Findings and Treatment Plan

In the Second Consultation, I’ll present to you your tailored Report of Findings and Treatment Plan, and we’ll get you started with your treatment.

The Report of Findings is an insightful report, all about you and your body. It may include analysis of your:

  • health questionnaires
  • diet and any macro or micronutrient deficiencies
  • lifestyle
  • blood pressure, BMI and waist measurements, if known
  • blood tests and functional pathology test results, if available
  • other relevant health markers and symptoms

This Report provides a picture of your current overall health, what’s happening in your body and the likely drivers of any symptoms and imbalances. It forms a baseline against which we will be able to monitor your progress throughout treatment.

The Treatment Plan will include your health goals and your treatment broken down into steps and time frames.

We’ll also discuss diet, lifestyle and supplement recommendations to get you started on your journey to optimal health.

The Second Consultation takes 60-75 minutes.

Blood Tests and Functional Pathology Testing

Blood tests and functional pathology tests may be recommended to provide further information about your general health, help clarify the causes of specific symptoms, or verify a diagnosis. The results will be used to develop targeted, specific treatment. These tests are at an additional cost and are only recommended if significant benefits can be gained.

During your Second Consultation, I will let you know if any blood tests or functional testing is recommended, what’s involved in the testing, the benefits and the cost, and if you agree, I will arrange the testing for you. Many blood tests can be arranged through your GP, but for those that can’t, I can provide a referral.

Follow-up Consultations

Follow-up Consultations will occur during implementation of your treatment plan. In each Follow-up Consultation, I’ll check in with you to see how you’re going, monitor your progress against your goals, adjust your Treatment Plan as necessary, explain the next steps in your treatment including diet and lifestyle changes and any supplements needed, and provide guidance and support.

The number and frequency of Follow-up Consultations needed varies from person to person depending on their health goals and treatment plan.

Each Follow-up Consultation is 30 minutes.

Please note that if a significant amount of time has elapsed since your last consultation, if new symptoms arise, or you if have new health objectives that you wish to achieve, you will need to schedule an Initial Consultation, so that an appropriate new treatment plan can be drawn up.

Annual Health & Nutrition Check

Following the completion of your treatment plan, I recommend that you schedule an annual health check so we can monitor your health, diet and lifestyle over the longer term. In these consultations I will review health markers which could include: recent blood tests, blood pressure, BMI and weight. We will also discuss your current diet and lifestyle and any questions you have. Please note that if new symptoms arise, or you have new health objectives that you wish to achieve, you will need to schedule an Initial Consultation, so that an appropriate treatment plan can be drawn up.

The Annual Health & Nutrition Check is 60 minutes.
