Where we start
We talk and confirm this is right for you, then you book your first appointment time. You will receive an initial intake form, and a food plan. If you have any recent medical records or lab tests, please bring these to your initial consultation.
Initial Comprehensive Health Intake Consultation (60-90 minutes)
This session is to talk in depth about you and your health, and explore any tests you have brought in with you. You'll tell me your goals and I will take all of this information to create your Health Plan.
Individualised Health Plan & First Follow-up (60 minutes)
I take all of the information you have provided me and I work to uncover the roots causes and connections between your symptoms and the outline of your health plan, against your goals, comes to life. We will work together in your first follow-up session to discuss your health plan, the imbalances we are addressing and confirm you are comfortable to move ahead. You will then receive the required nutritional supplementation and herbal support alongside lifestyle and nutrition recommendations in a full comprehensive plan that we review as we are going along.
Additional Follow-up Consultations (60 minutes each)
Each fortnight we will meet to review your progress, discuss your challenges and celebrate your wins. We will also have weekly check-in and accountability via email in-between sessions. I have got you.

Health Fund Rebates
I am a member of the ATMS. Private health insurance rebates are available for Nutrition consultations in-person depending on which health care provider you are with and the level of cover you have selected.
I do not have HICAPS, however you will receive an invoice or receipt on payment with an itemised list of services
to take to your provider to claim for your rebate.
If you do wish to reschedule or cancel your appointment, please note there is a 24-hour cancellation policy. If 24 hours notice is not given or you miss your appointment, a charge of $50 (or your deposit) will be applied as a missed appointment fee. I would love to see every patient possible, therefore it is inconvenient when patients cancel at the last minute. Thank you for your consideration.
