What is the difference between a dietitian and nutritional therapist?

Dietitians are regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the title 'dietitian' title is protected by law. Dietitians are uniquely qualified by degree to translate scientific information about food into practical dietary advice. Unlike the title 'dietitian', 'nutritional therapist' are not titles protected by law.  

What happens after I book a consultation? 

Once you book your appointment, you will be asked to complete a questionnaire, so that we can understand your journey so far. Then together we review your current nutrition and lifestyle, and discuss some ways to work towards your goals. We will send you a form to sign including our terms and conditions. Simply email it back before your consultation. 

Private consultations last an hour for the first appointment. Follow up appointments last 30 minutes and the number you need depends entirely on the amount of support you require.

To give you some ideas, clients who want to improve their relationship with food normally book four to eight sessions. For others that would like a general review and feedback then sometimes two sessions are enough. 

How much does a session cost?

The cost of the session will depend on the package chosen and the length of sessions. Get in contact with us to find out more.

We provide discounts for charity organisations, students and individuals who are financially struggling.

How do I know the information is up to date?

I regularly access clinical supervision and continuous professional development to enhance my dietetic skills and holistic methods. All my training and certifications can be found in the "About" page. 

How is my data protected?

We have three promises to you:

Confidentiality: We are registered with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). This means all your data is protected and shared with your consent.

Compliance. We are regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council standards and codes of conduct and the British Dietetic Association Standards.

Cooperation: We will work along with your consultant, family doctor and/or healthcare professional to achieve your holistic aims, with your consent.

What is the cancellation policy?

It is very important to us and our clients that our clinics run smoothly. To enable this we require minimum 48 hours notice for cancellation or rescheduling.

Please note the full consultation fee will be charged for non-attendance or cancellation within 24 hours. If you cancel your appointment within 2 working days, you will be charged 50% of the fee.

We will endavour to inform you 48 hours before your appointment of any absences or professional commitments.

Do you accept clients with health insurance?

Yes. I am not working with specific health insurers so you would need to check if your insurance covers a HCPC Registered Dietitian working in private practice.
