During our work together, I will act as your health detective

looking for clues to help detect the root cause of symptoms, to begin to restore optimal health and wellbeing

Working together

 

The Functional Medicine, evidence-informed approach I use addresses your whole person needs (not just your symptoms) and treats each person individually, focusing on the unique factors that may be creating or exacerbating your symptoms or health condition.

During our initial session, I carry out a comprehensive case history exploring not only your medical history, but where appropriate lifestyle, stress, sleep patterns etc.

It takes time to research, conduct testing, ascertain root causes, and develop the most effective plan to best optimise your health. If you have a complex illness or long-standing health issues, we may not make progress in just one or two sessions. I sometimes liken this to improving physical fitness. It is unlikely that you are able to make sufficient improvements to fitness by attending the gym just once and receiving your exercise plan! I have therefore developed a Wellbeing Package (Option 2) for people requiring additional ongoing support and motivation.

I aim to make sure all recommendations are as manageable and enjoyable as possible.

I work at the Practice Rooms in Bristol and the Hypnotherapy and Health Centre in Cirencester, but offer Skype/phone consultations to people anywhere in the world.

There are several options for working together:

Option 1 – £125

Personalised nutrition/Functional Medicine consultation:

A single appointment to set you on your path with a personalised nutrition programme. For some people this is enough to get them going to make the necessary changes – for others longer support will be required.
