Compatibility Call

This is a free 15-minute phone call for you to discuss your health concern and how I may be able to help. You can ask any questions you may have about how we may approach your treatment and how you can reach your health goals. This allows you to get an idea of me and how we would be able to work together to reach your health goals. During your call you will be recommended the consult or consult package to best suit you. 

Initial Consult

An initial consult is our starting point in getting to the bottom of your health concern. During our 60-75mins together we take a deep dive into your current and past health history, any relevant family history and a diet and lifestyle snapshot. This baseline information helps us to develop a treatment plan that suits your lifestyle and health goals. You will receive your treatment plan within 48 hours after your appointment. 

Follow-up Consult

Follow-up consults allow us to make changes and adjustments that move you progressively toward your goals. During our 30-45mins together we will discuss what has been working well for you and what needs adjusting. Together we will deal with any roadblocks that emerge, review any testing that has been completed, introduce new food ideas to keep up your interest and provide you with a partner for a sense of accountability.

Working with a Nutritionist is a comprehensive process that, with time, will allow you to enjoy numerous improvements to your wellbeing. Your nutritionist is here to work with you to make sustainable dietary and lifestyle changes that suit your long-term health goals.

Are they going to judge me based on what I eat? Never! Your Nutritionist is also a human facing the same kinds of issues as you, and they understand that diet is influenced by many different factors, which is why you will not get a one-size-fits-all solution but tailored dietary advice. 

If you’re not sure which consult to suits your particular needs or feel a custom form of treatment is best for you, call or email to discuss this further.

Of course! We are only happy to assist if you have any quick questions or concerns. All our consult-based services come with access to the client portal where you can direct message us. Please be mindful that if your question is complex you may need to book a follow-up consult to discuss your concerns fully. 

Yes, depending on your provider and level of coverage. If you are unsure and would like a quote please email us at 

Otherwise, you will be provided with an invoice after your service that you can check with your insurer if a rebate applies to you.  

In Australia, there is no regulation on who can call themselves a nutritionist. However, there are regulations around who can be called a dietitian. The lack of regulation for nutritionists means that anyone can say they are a nutritionist without holding any formal qualification. This is why it is important that you check the qualifications of your practitioner before you start treatment. Ideally, you should look for a practitioner with a Bachelor’s qualification and registration with a governing body. 

As a Clinical Nutritionist, I hold a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine) and I’m registered with the Australian Natural Therapists Association. 

As a rule, you cannot significantly grow your health overnight.  The decision to be healthy can hit us quickly- but the decision is only the start of the journey. The different types of Nutritional Consults are designed to support your differing needs over the entire course of your journey.

INITIAL CONSULTS: The Initial Consults start your health journey with a deep dive into your current health concerns. We will also discuss your past medical history, any relevant family history, and your current dietary and lifestyle habits. Further testing or more information may need to be completed at this point such as blood tests, microbiome testing, food and symptom diary or allergy testing.

Your nutritionist will then use all this collected information to develop a comprehensive long-term treatment plan which is designed to assist you to make changes and thus, improve. 

So, your initial consult provides both the start and finish line. However, the real race is won by the follow-up consults.

FOLLOW-UP CONSULTS: In Follow-Up Consults, we will make changes and adjustments that move you progressively toward your goals. We will deal with any roadblocks that emerge, continue progressive testing if needed, introduce new food ideas to keep up your interest, and provide you with a partner for a sense of accountability. Follow-up appointments will allow you to learn to integrate the nutritional plan long-term.

ONLINE CONSULTS: Ideally, Online Consults are suited to follow up established health plans rather than as initial consults because there is a lot of important health information that your Nutritionist can collect from seeing you in person. However, we all know that circumstances may not allow for this ideal scenario. That is OK; don’t let this stop you from reaching out. If you cannot arrange a face-to-face consult, please book either an initial or follow-up online consult. There is no difference in price, only in how we meet.
