“Sarah listened to my concerns and addressed the ones we identified for this appointment. She was very friendly, approachable and welcoming. She also took the time, beforehand, to create a meal planner for me. Thank you Sarah.”

“I have found Sarah’s advice enlightening, as she has demonstrated that adopting a healthier way of eating does not have to be an overwhelming process but instead an adjustment of current eating habits, giving me lots of simple tips to make meals not just healthier, but also more delicious with clever use of flavour combinations, herbs and spices. Thank you Sarah – your advice has been invaluable”

 

“What stood out to me was that Sarah was very understanding and gave prior attention to preparing helpful advice and suggestions. She has a very caring approach and organised the session to cover all the areas I needed advice/help with.”

What is nutritional therapy?

What is nutritional therapy?

Nutritional therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Nutritional therapy practitioners use a wide range of tools, including the latest laboratory testing, to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances in order to provide an understanding of why and how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms. It allows them to work with individuals to achieve nutritional balance and support the body for maintaining health.

It allows them to work with individuals to achieve nutritional balance and support the body for maintaining health.

Nutritional therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine. It is relevant both for individuals looking to enhance their health and wellbeing and for those with chronic conditions wishing to work with a nutritional therapist in collaboration with other suitably qualified healthcare professionals.

Practitioners consider each individual to be unique from a genetic, lifestyle and environmental standpoint and that all these factors need to be taken into account in order to recommend effective, safe and bespoke nutrition and lifestyle programmes.

Practitioners never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their medical professional. They may work alongside other medical professionals involved in the client’s care.

Practitioners never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their medical professional. They may work alongside other medical professionals involved in the client’s care.

In the UK, Nutritional Therapy is regulated by a Register managed by the Complimentary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), a government-sponsored body dedicated to safeguarding the public by ensuring that all registered practitioners meet the National Occupational Standards for healthcare disciplines. The CNHC register has been approved as an Accredited Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. A Nutritional Therapist can only display the CNHC quality mark if they have the appropriate level of training and competence. In order to retain the CNHC quality mark, Nutritional Therapists are required to update and develop their professional skills through an on going programme of Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

Consultations

Consultations

I work with clients to nutritionally support their bodies, so that they can rebalance and heal. As there are no one-size-fits-all approaches, each protocol that I recommend is bespoke and you will receive a health optimisation programme, after each consultation, that is based on your individual health, history, symptoms and if necessary test results.

Initial Consultation

During your consultation, we will discuss your health goals and explore any other health concerns you may have. I will then explain what the possible underlying imbalances are, and together we will agree a bespoke programme that fits with your food preferences, lifestyle and objectives.

Follow-up
Consultation

Follow-up consultations are recommended after around 4 weeks, to review progress, or any difficulties experienced. This is also a chance to discuss further health goals or feedback on any functional test results. Health Optimisation Programmes will be adapted after these appointments.

Fridge, larder
& grocery
Consultation

These sessions include tips and recommendations on how to detox your kitchen while you plan and start your new healthy eating regime. After all, the easiest ways to form healthy eating habits are to first clear out your kitchen and modify your shopping!

Supplements & functional testing

If appropriate, I may recommend a supplemental protocol that supports your dietary programme. Even if an individual is eating the right foods, exposing themselves to sufficient sunshine, getting plenty of rest and remaining hydrated there are still many reasons why taking dietary supplements can enhance your health goal.

If necessary, private functional testing may also be recommended to help devise the most appropriate programme to support your health goal. Alternatively, you may be referred back to your GP for tests, if these are available on the NHS. Among others, typical tests could include a blood test to identify possible nutrient deficiencies, a saliva test to assess hormonal profiles, or a stool test to investigate digestive function.

The costs of supplements or tests are not included in consultation fees and should be paid direct to suppliers by clients.

Frequently asked questions

Frequently asked questions

Why should I consult a nutritional therapist?

If you answer yes to any of the following questions, then please feel free to give me a call on 07860 472261 for an informal chat about your health goals:

  • I struggle from loosing weight even when on a calorie restricted diet
  • I can’t stop craving sweet things
  • I have dreadful PMS symptoms
  • I often feel tired and sluggish
  • I am often bloated
  • I wake up in the night
  • I suffer from aches and pains
What does a nutritional therapy session typically involve?
  • Before the first consultation, I usually provide a health and nutrition questionnaire for my clients to complete.
  • An initial consultation lasts 1 hour, during which I will ask you detailed questions about your health, diet and lifestyle.
  • I will then evaluate your individual needs and using the extensive evidence base for nutritional science, I will develop a personalised, safe and effective health optimisation programme.
  • Follow up consultations are generally after 3-4 weeks in order to monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments.
I can’t seem to stop making unhealthy choices . How do I get the willpower to make better decisions about what I put into my body?
  • This is a challenge we all face on a regular basis and I find the best way to deal with it is by doing a kitchen, fridge and larder detox. By removing all the unnecessary food items and filling our homes and kitchen with fresh food really helps in overcoming unhealthy food choices and cravings.
How can I sustain eating perfectly?
  • We are all human and eating well is not about perfection. For me, it’s learning how to make the right choices by knowing which foods work for you and which don’t.
  • Making the right choices tends to make one feel better, and this can soon develop into lasting healthy habits
If I start eating the right foods and follow recommended lifestyle changes, is it still necessary that I take supplements?
  • The need for supplementation can depend on our age, lifestyle and individual health requirements.
  • For example, as we age our ability to absorb nutrients from food can decrease and supplementation can be vital. Exercise also increases nutrient needs, and active individuals may require added nutrient consumption to compensate for the energy they expend.

 

Why is it important that one chooses a practitioner who is BANT and CNHC registered?
  • It is important to choose a qualified nutritional therapist who has been properly trained, qualified and insured.
  • Check whether a nutritional therapist is registered with the British Association for Applied Nutrition & Nutritional Therapy (BANT) as well as the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) by searching their websites at www.bant.org.uk and www.cnhc.org.uk.
