We believe that a variety of health conditions or weight struggles can be managed, if not resolved successfully through nutritional and psychological intervention.
Commonly managed health conditions include:
Lasting approximately 60minutes, an initial appointment includes a comprehensive assessment of your nutritional status. Relevant nutrition education will be provided. Specific goals will be set based on your priorities, as well as what Kim advises. You will be provided with a personalized eating plan and a set of dietary and lifestyle guidelines. These will be sent to you within 5 working days of the initial consultation. Vitamin and mineral or other supplementation advice will be given where appropriate.
Lasting approximately 30 minutes, a follow up session allows for monitoring of changes in weight or health measurements. Additions or changes to the meal plan may also be discussed. This time allows for you to keep track of your progress, and also gain further advice.
