Consultations are your time to discuss any issues you might have in detail in private with your dietitian. They are there for you to feel listened to and supported, and they provide you with the opportunity to seek advice. Consultations are done in a comfortable, confidential and judgment-free space.
For your initial appointment, it is strongly recommend to choose a 50-60-minute consultation to allow enough time to:
- Talk about any issues you might have, including your medical and social history
- Get to know each other
- Develop skills and knowledge
- Set goals, ask for advice, engage in activities and decide a plan of action
Understandably, this is not feasible for everybody, which is why different options are provided. Please be considerate when making appointments less than what is recommended; there may not be enough time to cover everything at the first appointment when this happens.
Pre-Appointment Information: Please read the Pre-Appointment Information prior to your consultation as it may answer some important questions.
Initial Consultation Pack: Please read and complete Initial Consultation Pack and either bring it with you to your appointment or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, arrive 10 minutes early to complete on the day.
