Nutritional Therapy Consultations – What to Expect

Before the first consultation, the practitioner usually provides a health and nutrition questionnaire for the client to complete. An initial consultation typically lasts 60 to 90 minutes, and in this time the practitioner asks detailed questions such as:

  • current health concerns
  • symptoms
  • diagnosis and treatment
  • medical history
  • family history
  • lifestyle
  • levels of physical activity
  • use of medication and supplements
  • diet

The practitioner evaluates individual needs and uses the extensive evidence base for nutritional science to develop a personalised, safe and effective nutrition and lifestyle programme.

Follow up consultations are generally after four weeks in order to monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments. Further follow-ups may be required depending on each individual situation.
