Frequently Asked Questions
What Does a Nutritionist Do?
Nutritionists support people to take care of their bodies and wellbeing with food. In collaboration with your GP, I will focus on understanding and revamping the eating attitudes and lifestyle behaviours that are effecting your current health.
How can you help me?
I work in a variety of settings such as private practice, preschool health, personal trainer collaborations, family health, and chronic healthcare. I am not here to remove all the pleasure from your diet.. I am not here for a quick fix or to send you on yet another rebound. I am passionate about teaching my clients strategies that will last them for life.
Do I need a meal plan?
I am well trained in creating, easy-to-follow meal plans for my clients; however, not all clients routinely need them. Ideally this would be individually assessed and discussed in our consultations. In some cases a meal plan can provide valuable assistance, however in others broader nutritional education is more appropriate.
How Often Should You See A Nutritionist ?
This is something to be discussed directly with you. The frequency of sessions can vary, often involving more frequent sessions at the beginning of therapy, and becoming less frequent once you are engaging in behaviour change.
We start with the 'Assessment Phase', we engage in an intensive history and symptom tracker, based on the latest scientific research we formulate a plan. Followed by an immediate sooth and relieve treatment. This can take some time. We need to build up the integrity and resilience of your health and we continue with a 'Maintenance Phase'. This will also vary depending on the complexity of the issues we are addressing.
Can I See a Nutritionist Via Telehealth?
Yes, I always prefer face to face but I am able to see clients via telehealth. In Australia, you may be able to claim Private Health Insurance rebates. Some limitations may apply regarding suitability.
