M.O.T  First Consultation £95

M = Motivation

O = Own your own healing potential

T = Triumph, thrive and transform 


2 hour Naturopathic Nutrition & Lifestyle Zoom online consultation.

Once paid, I will set you up on the secure GDP compliant client platform called "Practice Better".  Via this platform, I will send you a detailed questionnaire, and a 1 week food diary to complete in advance.  The First Consultation includes: -

  • Taking a very detailed and in depth life history going back to birth and beyond, looking at your family's health, and potential genetic predispositions from two generations back.  I also look at your health history from an Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine aspect.

  • Food diary review

  • Discussing likely root causes to symptoms, what were the probable triggers during the various life stages, and why they have likely manifested

  • After the consultation, up to 4 days later I will send you a typed Personalised Nutrition Programme with recommended supplements, foods, Fact Sheets to read, and other therapeutic recommendations

  • Education, advice, support, relevant fact sheets and motivation to help you take ownership of your own healing potential to triumph, thrive and transform your life.  Specific supplements and Bach Flower Remedies are generally recommended in your plan to support healing and address any likely vitamin or mineral imbalances - these can be purchased mostly from The Natural Dispensary with a my practitioner's client discount, so allow for some extra cost for these, but I can work to your budget.  If appropriate, I may recommend certain tests, to further investigate root causes along your health restoration journey, however I work very naturopathically and do not use many laboratory tests. I will often recommend Hair Mineral Testing but can also offer stool testing, DNA Health Testing etc.

Follow Up Session  £55

1 hour follow up, discussing; progress, additional advice, further recommendations, next stages, supplement review, whether laboratory tests are needed, and a re-fueling of motivation, inspiration and encouragement.  A follow up session could also be focussed totally on Buteyko Breathing training.

This is an inexpensive test, compared to other laboratory tests, that gives a huge amount of information for the price on mineral levels, toxic heavy metals and metabolic type.  I may sometimes suggest this to a client at some point during a health journey. Hair needs to be dye free for 6+ weeks (or leave a patch undyed at the back of the head) and free of medicated shampoo (particularly Head & Shoulders) for 2+ weeks.

A Hair Mineral Test Report will give indications of the following: -


  • Oxidation rate (slow, mixed or fast oxidizer)

  • Blood sugar balance (calcium: magnesium ratio)

  • Thyroid function (potassium: calcium ratio)

  • Adrenal status (sodium: magnesium ratio)

  • Vitality (sodium: potassium ratio)

  • Stage of stress (alarm, adaptation or exhaustion)

  • Ability to deal with stresses

  • Metabolic trends

  • Mineral levels

  • Toxic metal levels - mercury, aluminium, lead, arsenic

Please see my Nutritional Therapy Consultation page which explains what to expect from a Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy Consultation.  My Practise and Consultations are all virtual, online.


After an First Consultation, a shorter follow-up consultation is usually recommended a month later to check for any changes to symptoms and adjust the treatment plan, and subsequent consultations. Addressing health issues is like peeling off the layers of an onion. The longer you have had a symptom, or multiple issues, the longer it can take to unravel them.  It may take 2-3 months for symptoms to lessen, but may take much longer.  Most people however start to see a reduction in symtpoms in the fist few weeks if they follow their Personal Nutrition Plan.
