What is nutritional therapy?
Based on scientific evidence, nutritional therapy helps you to adjust your diet and lifestyle, so you’re in optimum health.A nutritional therapist works with food, supplements and lifestyle choices to create individual programmes to help alleviate your symptoms or prevent the development of many illnesses.
• are clinically trained
• work on a one-to-one basis with clients
• must meet national occupational standards for nutritional therapy.
Our nutritional therapists aren’t ‘food fascists’ – they don’t want you to stop eating the things you love, and they won’t impose changes to your diet. Instead, they want to talk with you about what you eat, to help you feel better and be healthier.
What to expect during your consultation
Before your consultation
Before your first consultation we’ll send you a questionnaire and food diary to complete and send back to us. This is so we can learn more about your lifestyle, medical history and eating habits. Doing this helps give us some background knowledge, so we can use your consultation time as efficiently as possible.
Your initial consultation
Your first consultation will last about an hour.
It’s a chance for us to discuss what you want to achieve and any concerns you might have. We’ll also ask you some questions about your questionnaire and food diary.
We’ll then discuss possible changes to your diet and lifestyle, before designing a personalised programme for you. At this point we might also decide that ordering some functional tests could be helpful.
You may want to come back in 4 to 6 weeks, so we can evaluate your progress and make any necessary changes to your programme.

"I met with Gavin yesterday, he managed to put a name on what has been causing me chronic back pains for over a year (whereas I was given out a printout from my GP with painkiller prescription), as well as soothing the pain with a few exercises and a bit of acupuncture. Not only did he save my week, and probably my back, he cheered me right up."
