I hold consultations via Zoom, Skype or FaceTime, and if you don't have that technology, or are unable to use it, I can also do consultations on the phone if necessary. Please note, as I work from home, I am unable to offer face to face consultations due to the new Covid restrictions which are in place for the foreseeable future.
Do you offer gift vouchers?
Vouchers are available on request, for any amount from £5 upwards. They make a fantastic present!*
*Please be aware that if you change your mind, refunds are available for four weeks after purchase and will be refunded to the person who originally paid for the Gift Voucher. There is also a time limit on the voucher and this will not be extended.
Can I contact you before booking a session to see if your services are suitable for me?
You are welcome to call me by phone for a 10 - 15 minute chat, or email me telling me about your circumstances, to see if nutritional therapy may be beneficial to you and to work out which package would suit your needs and your budget.
I am also seeing a doctor about my health concerns, do I need to tell them I am consulting you?
Clients who are under the care of a GP or other healthcare professional for health concerns should always let their health provider know of any changes to diet or other actions taken that may in any way affect overall care. If you take medication, any supplements you decide to take MUST be checked beforehand for interaction by your GP and / or pharmacist. If appropriate I will contact the GP with further information about the plan we develop. Please see Terms of Engagement for further details.
What if I need to cancel or rearrange a session?
Please give 3 working days notice for any change or cancellation to any appointment. If 3 working days notice is not given, a 50% cancellation fee, or a rearrangement fee of £10 if the appointment is changed to a different day, will be charged. If you don't turn up for a consultation, this will be charged at the full rate. Working days are considered to be Monday to Friday, from 9am to 7pm.
Does my health insurance cover your sessions?
Because I am registered with the CNHC, you may be able to claim a substantial amount of the consultation fees from Westfield Health Insurance (please see www.westfieldhealth.com) and Health Shield Insurance. However you will have to pay the session fees before you claim. Please ring the organisation to check the details of your policy as this is a relatively recent change and there are not many policies which do include Nutritional Therapy at the moment. In the ones that do, it is usually under the 'Complementary therapies' section.
Do you offer any discounts?
If you are currently a full time student, or you are claiming benefit, please mention this when you book as I do offer concessions if you have difficulty paying full prices.
Is it possible to have more information about food and cooking?
Please contact me to ask about menu planning, cookery lessons, store cupboard overhauls and shopping trips, all of which can be put together in a package to suit you, from one hour to five hour packages. Makes a fantastic present!
Can I come with a friend or partner?
If another person shares your health concerns, a double consultation MAY be possible - this might be your partner or your flat mate or a friend. However this will depend on the nature of the issues you would like to discuss and if there are differing needs e.g. due to health concerns, it may be necessary to see you separately. A double consultation will usually be charged at 20% more than the original price. Please call or email to discuss.
I have ME/CFS, can you help with this?
ME/CFS is a very complex condition, and while nutrition can help, I am not an expert in this area. I am happy to discuss basic advice with you, however, if you feel that is all that you can manage at the moment. If you have ME/ CFS, please see my 'Useful Links' page about how I work with Frances Goodall.
