  • What is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner?
    A Nutritional Therapy Practitioner uses evidence based nutrition science to address the body systems which are out of balance, using root cause analysis to get to the bottom of your health concerns. Each client is seen as a unique individual and as a result will have a personalised nutrition and lifestyle plan using an holistic approach.
  • Why is my plan different to someone with the same health conditions?
    One size does not fit all! Your body is unique and your current presenting symptoms will likely to have manifested over a number of years with different triggers. Therefore, everyone is given a bespoke nutrition and lifestyle plan to unlock your best health, specific to you!
  • What are your qualifications and accreditations?
    I have a diploma in Nutritional Therapy with The College of Naturopathic Medicine. I am also a member of Naturopathic Nutrition Association (NNA) and The General Naturopathic Council (GNC), this means that I follow strict guidelines as a Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist, provide a safe and reliable service, and continuously update my knowledge by attending seminars and events across the UK. I also belong to the mentorship of Debbie Grayson, Practice With Confidence, which provides additional support with medication interactions and polypharmacy. I am also a member of the UK & International Health Coaching Association which also means that I follow strict guidelines as a Health Coach, provide a safe and reliable service, and continuously update my knowledge by attending seminars and events across the UK.

  • But will you just put me on a diet?
    Nutritional therapy is all about abundance, feeding your body with the correct nutrients and crowding out the unhelpful foods. I will never put you on a restricted faddy diet! Quite often, by using an holistic approach to rebalance the body, you may find that weight loss becomes an added bonus to your health journey.
  • What is involved in my consultation?
    After your discovery call, you will be sent an in-depth questionnaire and 5 day food diary to complete. These are essential for me to understand what could be driving your symptoms. The 60-90 minute Initial Consultation is all about understanding your health concerns, your symptoms and your past medical history which has lead you to present with your current ailments. There is no judgement, it is about empowering you with the correct knowledge to unlock your best health ever!
  • Is there anything I need to have prepared?
    You will need to return your completed in-depth Health Questionnaire and your 5 day food and lifestyle diary which would have been sent to you directly after your discovery call. You should have also returned a signed terms and conditions form and paid in full, at least 48 hours prior to your first consultation. Please bring an open mind as you may be surprised to find out that finding your best health is not just about nutrition!
  • But I'm vegan/vegetarian, can you still help me?
    Definitely! I'm actually vegan myself, however I promote the nutrition best for the needs of your unique body to bring everything back into balance, bringing you transformational health!
  • Do I have to take supplements?
    I address any nutrient insufficiencies with nutrition first, however there may be times when your body needs an extra boost quickly whilst we continue to work on re-balancing your diet. I will take into account any budget restrictions you may have when it comes to choosing supplementation. Liquid versions of supplements are available if you are one of the many who have difficulty swallowing tablets. All supplements recommend are professional grade.
  • You've mentioned testing, can't I get that for free at my doctor's?
    There may be times where functional testing is appropriate - to understand specific strains of bacteria lacking in your gut for example . This kind of testing is done through private laboratories as it is far more comprehensive than testing done through your GP. Any testing will be invoiced directly from the lab and is not included in your packing cost.
  • How long will it take to see a difference?
    Firstly, health is a journey and not a destination, and is not linear. Just as every day life changes up and down when new challenges arise so will your health. How quickly your health improves very much depends on the effort you put in to change your diet and lifestyle, there is no magic wand! Your health has likely been deteriorating over several years so recovery will not be overnight. Your bespoke nutrition and lifestyle plan will be all about making long lasting incremental steps to your best health whilst having the support and guidance of Lisa throughout your journey.
  • I don't know which package is right for me!
    Don't worry, in your discovery call we will discuss your health concerns and your particular health goals. From this we can decide together on the package which is most suitable for you to achieve your best health.
  • I'm on so many different prescribed medications, can you really improve my health?
    Yes! Some medications may prevent the correct absorption of key nutrients in the body. By addressing just these alone may bring you very welcomed relief of some side effects you may be experiencing.
  • I've booked in my Initial Consultation, but I now need to reschedule!
    If it is more than 48 hours until your consultation then you are able to reschedule without charge. If it is less than 48 hours, then our cancellation policy applies. Please see our Terms & Conditions at the bottom of this page for the cancellation policy.
  • I've decided to cancel my consultation package - can I have a refund?
    A full refund is available if you cancel at least 48 hours prior to your consultation. Only a partial refund will be give if less than 48 hours. Please see our Terms & Conditions at the bottom of this page for full details.
