THE CONSULTATION process
- Prior to the initial appointment, you will be sent a health questionnaire and a 4-day food diary to complete and return. The information you provide helps me build a story of who you are. If you want me to review any recent blood work lab test results you can also send me these.
- Typically the first consultation will last 60 mins. We can either meet at my clinic in Epping https://www.thecoachhouseepping.com or remotely via Zoom. This is a chance for us to get to know each other in person and discuss any issues arising from the health questionnaire. Every clients experience will be different depending on their personal needs and the level of support required. We will explore any barriers to wellness you have and what is practically achievable for you. If you are on one of my programmes, then this is only the start of our time together. I will lay the roadmap out for you so that you have a clear idea of what to expect over the coming months.
- Within 72 hours of your appointment, I will send your personalised dietary, lifestyle and supplement plan with supporting menu ideas and handouts. I may also suggest you have some health tests which are commonly referred to as functional tests (details of which are below).
On receipt of the plan, I offer a 15 mins telephone conversation to discuss any concerns you may have.
I might suggest you run some health tests. This is a fast track way of identifying what could be driving your condition. It can save you a lot of time, effort and money if we test not guess! I will usually start with a standard blood chemistry panel which can be run by your GP or privately. From here it may be necessary to explore more specific concerns. I use just a handful of scientifically backed tests that can provide insights into your own biochemical individuality and help support decisions concerning future food, supplement, and lifestyle modifications. Tests may require a sample of urine, hair, blood or your stools.
