Detailed case history taking is an essential part of the consultation process. It's as important to know about family history, childhood events and lifestyle as it is to know about current diet. Iridology is incorporated into the consultation which is a helpful way to look for inherent strengths and weaknesses. Education is an important aspect of the consultation aiming to give clients a really good understanding of why changes are being suggested. This gives clients a greater chance of success and is more likely to be sustained for the long-term. Nutritional supplements may also be advised, particularly at an early stage in the programme, as these can help to support the body. Functional tests, such as hair mineral analysis or food allergy testing, are an optional extra that may be recommended. Working with you, dietary changes that you feel comfortable to follow will be suggested working at a pace to suit you and your lifestyle.

Private Health Insurance Cash Plans
Westfield and Health Shield offer reimbursement of my therapies on specified corporate paid plans. Clients who wish to seek reimbursement will need to check that their employer’s plan covers the therapies offered.
There are a plethora of functional tests available and I tend to offer a small selection of these based on my clinical experience. These will be discussed at the consultation to determine whether such testing will be of benefit. Wherever possible, dietary and lifestyle recommendations are implemented first.
