An initial appointment will last for around 60 minutes. In this time we will discuss symptoms, medical history, diet and lifestyle. We will look in detail at current dietary patterns and work together to establish some goals to address your concerns. The appointment fee includes a personalised plan, which is sent out following the appointment.
Review appointments last around 30-45 minutes. We will discuss how things are progressing with your plan, look at any challenges you have had and set some further goals as necessary. Some people will only require one or two review appointments whereas others may benefit from more frequent, ongoing support - this is all discussed and decided on an individual basis, to suit you. The appointment fee includes an updated personalised plan, which is sent out following the appointment.
THE WEANING PACKAGE
The weaning process can be hugely challenging and with so much varying information about how 'best' to do it, it can feel like a minefield. I can support families during this process, helping to address questions such as when to start and what to give, and also advise on the evidence-based guidance on introducing food allergens to babies diets. I firmly believe that there is no one way to wean, and enjoy working with families to make plans which suit their infant. This package includes:
* 60 minute pre-weaning consultation - this can be arranged in the weeks before you plan to start weaning
*A review appointment at around 4 weeks
*A review appointment at around 8 weeks
When booking a package, we will only set the date of the first appointment initially - dates for follow-up appointments are entirely flexible, to best suit you and your infant.
THE LOW FODMAP PACKAGE
The Low FODMAP diet is a recent advancement in the management of IBS. Developed at Monash University in Melbourne, the diet offers a structured approach to identifying specifically which foods cause or exacerbate your IBS symptoms. Management by a fully qualified Registered Dietitian is essential to ensuring the diet is done correctly, that you are fully supported with the practicalities of this approach and that your diet remains nutritionally balanced throughout. I would strongly recommend booking an initial consultation before starting this package, so that we can discuss your symptoms and lifestyle and assess whether this is the right approach for you. This package includes:
* A Low FODMAP consultation (around 60 minutes) including in-depth discussion about the principles of the diet, practical tips, advice for shopping, recipes and meal-planning. Evidence-based literature from Kings College London is included in the cost of this package
* A review consultation around week 4 to monitor how you are managing with the diet and address any challenges
* A review consultation around week 8, with discussion about the FODMAP reintroduction process and next steps
When booking a package, we will only set the date of the first appointment initially - dates for follow-up appointments are entirely flexible and can be planned to suit you.
