People of all ages book in for individual consultations with me. Some come just for a simple diet check, but most people come for help with one or more (sometimes many!) health problems.
I work at the Cheltenham Holistic Health Centre (Camargue House, 32 Wellington Road, Cheltenham GL52 2AG) on alternate Tuesdays and some Saturdays. The clinic can advise on available slots if you call them on 01242 584140 or you can book online at www.chhc.co.uk.
I also see both new and existing clients at my clinic in Stroud, the Cotswold Health Centre (8A George Street, Stroud GL5 3DX). Please call 01453 767600 to ask about available appointments (Tuesdays and Wednesdays only).
Please visit www.chhc.co.uk for directions to the Cheltenham clinic or www.chchealth.co.uk for directions to the Stroud clinic.
Before the consultation
Before your first visit, I will ask you to fill in a questionnaire giving details of your current diet and lifestyle, your health history and any current symptoms. This isn’t essential, but you will probably get more out of your consultation if you do so, since it helps me to make an initial assessment of possible underlying causes. You will receive a questionnaire when you book in, either by post or by email. The clinic will advise when you book in as to whether there is time for you to return the questionnaire before your appointment, or whether you should bring it with you to your first appointment.
Our first meeting will last up to 1 hour and 10 minutes, which allows me time to get a good understanding of your health and your needs. When we meet, we will go into your health and diet in more detail. I will then tell you what I think may have caused or be contributing to your health problems, and how I think you might usefully adjust your diet to improve or maintain your health. Once we’ve agreed the content and pace of the dietary changes, I will give you a full information pack with written dietary recommendations. Some supplements may also be recommended to provide an initial boost to your metabolism and support your body as you go through the process of dietary change.
