Still have questions?

  • Do you provide testing services?
    Absolutely. As a certified Nutritional Therapist, I can offer an extensive array of functional tests conducted by reputable external laboratories. These tests are selected based on your specific needs. By analysing the test results alongside your reported symptoms, we collaboratively devise a precise and personalised strategy to cater to your unique needs. The testing options encompass a diverse range, including comprehensive stool analyses, SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) testing, hormonal panels, assessments for food intolerances, genetic evaluations, and beyond. Your path to improved health frequently begins with informed and tailored testing.
  • What if I've already undergone testing through my GP?
    If you've previously conducted tests with your GP, it's incredibly valuable to share those results as part of your medical health assessment. This sharing allows me to gain a comprehensive understanding of your situation and aids in forming a complete and accurate perspective of your health status. Your prior test results contribute significantly to the bigger picture we're striving to create.
  • How do online consultations work?
    Online consultations operate in the same manner as in-person appointments, providing a seamless experience. Additionally, they often offer enhanced convenience, as they eliminate the need for travel. This can be especially practical for many individuals.
  • Where do the consultations take place?
    Currently, the majority of appointments are conducted online. However, if you're in the local area and prefer in-person consultations, we can definitely explore that option as well. Your convenience and comfort are key considerations in my approach.
  • Is functional testing recommended as part of the Relationship with Food Programs?
    The nutrition segment of the programmes is designed to address potential nutrient deficiencies and identify any underlying health considerations, such as digestive troubles, hormonal imbalances, or anxiety, which could contribute to your challenges with food. In alignment with this comprehensive approach, I offer tailored functional test recommendations, keeping your symptom resolution as a primary objective. This ensures a well-rounded perspective in our journey towards improved well-being.
  • Do you collaborate with other health professionals?
    Depending on your individual circumstances, medical history, and your current stage in the journey to improve your relationship with food, it may be both safer and more beneficial to collaborate with other healthcare professionals, including GPs, counsellors, and psychotherapists. This ensures that you receive the comprehensive care you rightfully deserve.
  • Are the Relationship with Food Programmes focused on weight loss?
    While weight management might be a part of your goals, the primary focus of these programmes is to help you develop a healthier and more mindful relationship with food. This includes addressing emotional eating, improving body image, and building a foundation for sustainable, long-term well-being. It's important to note that weight loss can naturally follow as a result of these holistic efforts.
  • What are the potential benefits of the Relationship with Food Programmes?
    By participating in these programmes, you will experience reduced stress around food, improved self-awareness, enhanced body positivity, and a greater sense of control over your eating habits. The ultimate goal is to foster a harmonious and balanced relationship with the food you eat.
  • Who are the Relationship with Food Programmes suitable for?
    These programmes are suitable for anyone who wants to transform their relationship with food. Whether you struggle with emotional eating, yo-yo dieting, or simply want to develop a more mindful and sustainable approach to eating, this program can provide valuable insights and strategies. Furthermore, if you can relate to any of these statements, the programmes are for you. I am obsessed with food but don’t know where to start. Once I start eating, I struggle to stop. I am uncertain about how it feels to be hungry or full. I am constantly dieting. I am able to stop overeating, but I struggle to manage my thoughts. My eating habits affect my moods. Despite my intentions, I find myself overeating again and again. I have difficulty controlling my eating at specific times of the day. I feel ashamed and guilty about my eating habits. I eat in secret. I am comfort eating or engage in emotional eating. Sometimes, I am not even aware of what I am eating. I don't feel satisfied after eating. I consume large amounts of food in one sitting. Food causes me a lot of distress. I weigh myself multiple times a day. My mood is dictated by the number on the scale. I am always worried about my body image. I engage in compensatory behaviours, such as overexercising, restricting food, or other unhelpful behaviours, in response to my eating habits. I am confused and don’t know what to eat anymore.
  • What can I expect from the Relationship with Food Programmes?
    In these programmes, you can expect to explore and address the emotional, psychological, and behavioural aspects of your eating habits. It's a guided process aimed at fostering positive changes and nurturing a healthier relationship with food.
  • What if I've already undergone testing through my GP?
    If you've previously conducted tests with your GP, it's incredibly valuable to share those results as part of your medical health assessment. This sharing allows me to gain a comprehensive understanding of your situation and aids in forming a complete and accurate perspective of your health status. Your prior test results contribute significantly to the bigger picture we're striving to create.
