Broad nutritional and nursing knowledge and experience allow me to offer a very comprehensive health assessment, looking for the underlying physical and emotional factors which may be contributing to your health concern(s).
What are your health concerns?
Perhaps you can’t seem to lose weight and / or keep it off? Perhaps your energy levels have dropped and you can’t recover them, or perhaps you don’t know what to eat because you are having stomach or bowel problems...? There is always a reason and that’s what I will endeavour to help identify and then institute measures to start correcting, right from your first appointment.
Often clients feel they are eating a balanced diet, but on assessment, it transpires there is a lack or an excess of certain food groups, or they may have digestive issues which can impair absorption of certain vitamins and minerals. These can lead to deficiencies and ultimately myriad health concerns from fatigue, to weight gain, to depression. Plenty of dietary advice is supplied during your consultation, including any food alternative information, meal suggestions, helpful recipes etc. This makes the process of any important changes so do-able!
What Happens at a Nutritional Consultation?
On booking an appointment, you will be sent a nutritional / health questionnaire to complete and bring with you. If you have had any medical tests done, like blood or other tests, it is very helpful to bring a copy of the results with you for consideration in the overall assessment.
At your first consultation, a detailed, comprehensive health history and assessment will be taken, to help identify the main factors affecting your health, including possible nutrient deficiencies and food intolerances. These will then be explained and a strategy to improve your health formulated. You will be given a written summary of your health assessment and an individually tailored nutritional programme detailing dietary, lifestyle and supplement recommendations.
You will also receive a folder to hold your programme documents, together with additional information sheets according to your needs. Personal support by email or phone is available between appointments as required.
Nutritional therapy works alongside conventional medicine. If you are seeing a doctor it is important that you inform Wendy about any medications / treatments you are currently receiving, to ensure her recommendations complement your current medical therapy.
Follow-up consultations are usually advised 3-6 weekly (depending on your needs), to assess progress and make adjustments to your programme.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and allows us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki in Japanese breaks down to, ‘Rei’ which means ' Universal' and ‘Ki’ which is 'energy'.
Reiki sessions can be 1 - 1.5 hours long, depending on the client's needs.
