What does a consultation with Liz involve?
Nutritional Therapy / Homeopathic consultations
Whilst I do generally incorporate both Nutritional Therapy and Homeopathy into your treatment programme, I am happy to see you for either Nutritional Therapy or Homeopathy as an individual therapy as well.
It is important that your Family Doctor is fully aware of any health problems you may have; if you have not already consulted him / her with regards to your symptoms please do so prior to coming to see me for the first time.
What can I expect from my first consultation?
When you make an appointment to see me for a consultation, I will send you a questionnaire to fill in and bring with you to your first appointment. If you have had any blood tests done by your Doctor, it would be useful for you to bring the results along with you so that I can assess them from a functional medicine perspective.
At your first appointment I will ask you to tell me in detail about the problems you want help with; I will also ask for details of your medical history, any treatments you may have had, your family history, and your general state of physical and emotional well being. We will also discuss your diet and look at lifestyle factors which may be affecting your health.
I may recommend laboratory tests if I feel they would be helpful.
How long does a consultation last?
Your first consultation will take a little longer than the subsequent appointments, usually about 1½ hours.
Follow-up consultations will be up to an hour long, and are usually held between 4-6 weekly intervals, dependent upon your preference and the level of support you feel you reqiuire.
What you get following your initial consultation:
A personalized dietary programme and supplement recommendation sheet along with detailed handouts to inform you and help you to make the changes as easily as possible. These will be sent to you within a few days of your appointment.
Interpretation of your blood tests from an functional health perspective along with comprehensive interpretation of any lab tests I recommend.
If you have indicated that you would like Homeopathic Remedies as part of your treatment plan, then these will be sent out with the above information.
It is my intention to support all aspects of your physical and emotional well being along with lifestyle advice to help you life your life to the full.
Why should I have follow up consultations?
Follow-ups are important. They give you an opportunity to discuss in detail any problems you are experiencing and allow me to assess your response to the programme I have set and make any adjustments necessary to optimise the benefits to you.
In addition you will get an updated supplement sheet and diet recommendations where appropriate along with Interpretation of any new test results and additional handouts as appropriate.
I usually recommend that the initial follow-ups are at 4-6 weekly intervals
Support In-between Consultations
I do give you comprehensive handouts to help support you through making dietary and lifestyle changes. If you are experiencing any problems you will be able to contact me in between consultations.
If you cannot carry out any recommendations because the information is unclear or missing– then you can email or call between consultations to get the information you need.
If you are experiencing problems in response to the programme, one short 15 minute phone call will be included in your initial consultation charge. Any additional time will be charged for. Full consultations are also flexible and can be moved back or forward, depending on your individual needs.
Shamanic Healing Sessions
When you book an appointment, I will send you an email asking you to give me a few details about the issue you are wanting help with. It is helpful if you can send this back to me at least a week before your appointment. When you come for your appointment, we will spend about half an hour taking over the issues you are wanting to work with in greater detail. After we have done this, I will then do the journey for you; during this time you can sit and relax or meditate too. When I have finished the journey, I will then tell you what has happened and we can talk about how you can incorporate it into your life. You will probably want to write this down so you can refer to it later.
Shamanic Healing sessions usually last 2 hours
Shamanic consultations are available in person at Kendal, Carlisle or Clitheroe and I also offer distance healing, with consultations by telephone or Skype for Shamanic Healing.
Whilst there is no questionnaire to complete prior to your Aromatherapy appointment, at your first consultation Liz will need details of your medical history and current symptoms prior to your first massage.
Please note Aromatherapy consultations are only offered in Kendal.
Where can I see Liz for a consultation?
I run clinics at Kendal & Carlisle in Cumbria and at Clitheroe in Lancashire. Consultations can be readily be arranged either in my home town of Kendal or alternatively in Carlisle or Clitheroe, whichever is more convenient for you. The venues are easily accessible for South Lakes, Cumbria, North Lancashire & Yorkshire, most of North West England and Southern Scotland.
If you are unable to attend in person, consultations can take place via Skype; however it is preferable to meet in person so I can assess you more thoroughly.
Telephone consultations are available for Nutrition / Homeopathy follow-up appointments only although face to face consultations are preferable as they tend to be more effective.
Shamanic Healing is available as distance healing following a telephone consultation.
Consultations are available on weekdays (all venues) and selected weekday evenings (Kendal only). All of the venues have disabled access.
