Nutritional Therapy and Hypnotherapy Consultations

Nutritional Therapy

The number of nutritional therapy consultations required varies according to your health goals, the complexity of your case, and relies on you making some diet and lifestyle changes. Nutritional Therapy is not a quick fix. It involves working together to support the root of a problem with both diet and lifestyle. Depending on your health goal, this process may take a few months (typically allow 3 months) but may take up to a year with complex cases. Subsequently, you’ll be enabled to support yourself in optimum health for the rest of your life. Because it is a PROCESS, we will focus on one or two health goals at a time. You will be provided with a combination of information and education, advice, support, encouragement, and accountability over the course. Because it is not advisable to provide too many recommendations and too much information at once, Nutritional Therapy is delivered as a course of therapy over approximately 3 to 6 sessions. You will be expected to follow recommendations (with my support) and keep in touch. For extra support and sustainable results, you might like to add some hypnotherapy to your nutritional therapy. This may help to support any overwhelm or anxiety you might be feeling about making diet and lifestyle changes. Hypnotherapy can also support the change of unhelpful habits and behaviours. Nutritional therapy recommendations will be regularly reviewed. Prior to your consultation, I require a completed health questionnaire and a 3-day food diary in advance of the appointment and payment in advance via BACS. Currently consultations take place either on Zoom or in person at my Cheltenham clinic. For more information see my nutritional therapy page or FAQs. Here’s the nutritional therapy process:

  1. Initial consultation– In this consultation of up to 90 minutes we discuss your health questionnaire and food diary and your personalised recommendations for the next 4 weeks. These will be food-based and lifestyle recommendations, but I may discuss other useful approaches such as GP blood tests, functional tests or supplements. You will take away your individual recommendations for up to 4 weeks plus a 30+ page Diet and Lifestyle Handbook and recipes.
  2. Check-in-After 7 days I will check-in with a 10-minute Zoom or call to see how you are. This is to check your understanding of your recommendations and to provide support, not for new recommendations.
  3. Two to four weeks after your initial consultation we will have a 30-minute in-person session, call or Zoom. This will help keep you on track, stay motivated and answer any questions you may have. It might be that we adapt and change your recommendations according to your progress.
  4. In a further two to four weeks we will have another 30-minute session to review and build on your recommendations or for coaching which provides support.
  5. We will continue the course for approximately 3 months and review.
  6. After your package has ended, you may continue Nutritional Therapy or Health Coaching by paying as you go or buying another package of three 30-minute follow-ups. After your Nutritional Therapy, you can get in touch for a follow-up session any time.

“I have struggled for a few years with my gut health and could never figure out what I was doing wrong until I had a clinic with Kate! Kate has been so helpful in guiding and supporting me through learning about nutrition and how my body works in terms of food and mental health. I can confidently say that I have never felt so good and that I truly understand my body.”

Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy Packages and Prices

Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy and gut-directed hypnotherapy are safe, supportive therapies particularly well suited to IBS, anxiety and changing habits and unhelpful behaviours. For more information about hypnotherapy, please visit my hypnotherapy page, FAQs, or get in touch. Hypnotherapy can be booked on its own and you pay as you go or you can combine it as a package at a slight discount. There is also the option to combine hypnotherapy with nutritional therapy (see the Nourish and Calm Nutritional Therapy and Hypnotherapy Package). Please bear in mind that hypnotherapy requires several sessions, along with practice at home for it to be effective. Typically this is approximately 5-6 sessions but some cases may need fewer or more. The gut-directed hypnotherapy protocol is 6 sessions but you can have more or fewer to suit your needs. For more information about hypnotherapy please see my hypnotherapy page or go to my blog page and see the blogs on hypnotherapy. Best of all would be to arrange a free call with me and I can explain how I work and we can see how I might be able to help you.

20-minute discovery call -free. I recommend we speak first to make sure this is the right therapy for you.

90-minute initial consultation -£70*

This session involves taking some questionnaires and assessing your needs. This is an opportunity for you to talk in a safe space about your issue. Together we agree your goals and make a plan of how to support you. There is time for hypnosis and you will be sent a hypnosis recording. This recording is for you to listen to several times a week if not daily and is part of your ‘homework’. This homework helps to embed the work we have done in therapy and supports your progress. It is important to make time for some recordings. If you do not have time to listen to a 20-minute hypnosis several times a week, hypnotherapy probably is not right for you. All initial sessions are paid for in advance on booking.

60-minute follow up -£70*

In your follow ups, we will start with you updating me on your progress and an opportunity to talk. I may use some CBT techniques. Then there will be your hypnosis, feedback, and your ‘homework’ will be given. This is usually a personalised recorded hypnosis for you to listen to several times a week.

Hypnotherapy prices are subject to change at a later date.

Health Coaching

Health coaching is different to nutritional therapy. Health coaching is integrated into all my nutritional therapy sessions but can be offered as a separate service. The main difference is that with coaching I guide you in finding your own solutions to your health challenges. It is not therapeutic advice like nutritional therapy so I do not give personalised dietary advice or supplement advice. But together I help you to reach your health goals by providing support, accountability and motivation. The benefits of health coaching is it gives you confidence to make diet and lifestyle changes that support your health goal. It is well suited to people who know how they would like to behave in terms of diet, lifestyle, exercise etc but need support with changing behaviours. I use my cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy and coaching skills to help you overcome the obstacles that are holding you back. Health coaching is a partnership. I help you find solutions to problems or to support a more helpful mindset around your health challenges. As with all my services, I recommend we speak on the phone first to make sure this is the right service for you.

  • Initial consultation -£150– 60 minutes -health questionnaire, food diary and discussion of your health goals.
  • Coaching session- £48 –30 minutes health coaching to support your health goals

“Before finding Kate I thought I’d have bloating and digestion issues forever and it would be something I’d have to deal with for the rest of my life! Kate gave me not only great advice but also the knowledge to apply simple lifestyle changes to my everyday life. Not even 4 months in to making these simple but effective changes to my diet and lifestyle the bloating and digestion issues have finally disappeared from my life, I feel confident again!”

Katie

Payments

All initial consultations for both nutritional therapy and hypnotherapy are paid in advance via BACS, as are packages. However individual follow ups are paid for after the session through cash or BACs. If you have paid for a package and have changed your mind about your therapy please speak to me.

Timings

All therapy sessions, including the free call, must stick to time please so that I am not late for my next client. Thank you for your understanding.

Cancellations

Cancellations of less than 48 hours may incur a 50-100% charge.

Supplements

I aim to use food first, however, some clients may require support through the short-term use of supplements (if appropriate and if the client wishes). These are not included in the consultation fee but I can provide 10% discount on most products. For supplement recommendations, an appointment must be made.

Functional Testing

As part of the functional medicine approach, I may recommend functional tests as a way of getting to the root of an issue and these can provide a measurable insight into your health and well-being. Examples include stool tests to assess gut and digestive health, SIBO test, full thyroid test, salivary adrenal stress test, organic acids tests (these are metabolic byproducts which give an indication of your metabolic health through a urine sample), food intolerance tests and hormone tests. There will be an additional charge for diagnostic tests that are not available from a GP for those clients who require or request them. Laboratories that I use include but are not limited to: INVIVO, Genova Diagnostics, Regenerus and Nordic Labs. I charge a £96 interpretation fee for each test and a 60-minute consultation is required to feedback on results and recommendations. Minutes from your package can be used for your consultation. Or a functional testing add-on (test interpretation and 60-minute consultation) is £186. This does not include the test. I provide access to functional tests at cost price but I charge for my time in interpretation.

Other services

I also give talks and workshops and write articles and blogs. Please note I charge for these services at an hourly rate. Feel free to enquire for further information.
