Initial Consultation | 90 Minutes

The aim of a Naturopathic consultation is to educate and empower you with regards to your health and wellbeing. With the foundations of evidence-based knowledge, I promote self-healing.

In the initial consultation I will take your case history. We will talk about your current and past health concerns, your diet and your lifestyle, in order to create a holistic picture of where you’re at regarding your health. Next, we’ll talk about what your goals and priorities are and we’ll come up with a unique treatment plan that works for you and fits with any medication you may have already been prescribed by your Doctor. You’ll have plenty of opportunity to discuss the rationale behind your treatment and the clinical evidence for it.

Within the appointment, I may need to examine your blood pressure, your heart rate and your breathing. I’ll also employ tools such as iridology and skin, hair and nail analysis to help me understand your health status. I may also refer you to see your GP for a blood test, so that I can better understand your condition or if I have any specific concerns that require further investigation.

As a part of your treatment plan, I may recommend that you take herbs (in the form of liquid herbal extracts) or vitamin / mineral supplements, which will support the healing process.

You will receive:

  • A 90 minute private consultation;
  • Written referral letter to your doctor (if applicable);
  • Recommended practitioner only herbal and nutritional supplements;
  • A 10-minute follow-up phone call or email 1 week after your initial consultation;
  • Your personal treatment plan emailed or posted to you within 3 working days;
  • Individualised dietary and lifestyle recommendations emailed or posted to you within 3 working days;
  • Relevant peer reviewed research that will help you better understand your condition or the treatment I recommend emailed or posted to you within 5 days;
  • Email support between consultations.

Follow Up Consultation | 60 Minutes

The follow up consultations focus on how you are progressing. I will monitor any changes to your condition by comparing it through time. This will be done through the consultation, laboratory results and physical examination. Through monitoring your signs and symptoms, I’ll get a good idea of whether there are any underlying causes or pathology. We’ll also have the opportunity to discuss and treat any new conditions.

The follow up consultations are shorter than the initial one, because we’ll already have your case history and family history to work with. The aim is to build upon this information. Usually, having tackled your presenting problem in the initial consultation, the follow up appointments are targeted at exploring deeper, chronic and reoccurring problems. Keeping true to Naturopathic philosophy, ‘treat the cause’ and ‘treat the whole person’, the aim is to find the root of the problem. For example, if hay fever were your initial complaint, the initial consultation would focus on finding immediate relief and the following consultations would be focused on finding out the cause of the hay fever such as food intolerance, a pathogen or environmental factors.

Depending on your circumstances, I’ll recommend a follow up consultation 2-3 weeks after the initial consultation. There is no obligation to book a follow up consultation, and in some situations there may be no need. However, for most people the best results are achieved through coming back for re-assessment and guidance. However, my long-term aim is to empower you to take control of your own health and wellbeing.

You will receive:

  • A 60 minute private consultation;
  • Written referral letter to your doctor (if applicable);
  • Recommended practitioner only herbal and nutritional supplements;
  • Your personal treatment plan emailed or posted to you within 3 working days;
  • Individualised dietary and lifestyle recommendations emailed or posted to you within 3 working days;
  • Relevant peer reviewed research that will help you better understand your condition or the treatment I recommend emailed or posted to you within 5 days;
  • Email support between consultations.
