You don’t have to try and figure it out on your own. I am trained to help you and through our collaboration we will find the solution together.
Have a short chat with me so you can decide if this is the right approach for you and what it would look like to work together.
If you decide to go ahead we will arrange your first consultation.
Consultations are usually booked a week later, so that you have enough time to complete your assessment forms and I have enough time to do a in depth analysis.
Consultation: discovery call
Time: 30 minutes
Fees: no charge
Consultation: first consultation
Time: 1.5 hours
Time: 45 minutes
Locating the root causes of conditions forms my foundation in helping you to take control of your health and your life.
Take a look into how my functional medicine approach, and how consultations and protocols could work for you.
Real lives, real results. It’s my privilege to share these stories from my clients, in their own words.
I will send you a health assessment form and 3 day food and lifestyle diary to complete. These must be completed 3 days before you first consultation.
Please share your recent blood test results (from the last 3 months) with me via my portal.
It is also important for me to be aware all medications and supplements that you are taking. Please have these handy during your visit so that I can evaluate them accurately and thoroughly.
I see clients by video.
Fitting in self care can be a challenge and telemedicine is a modern day solution that makes getting good care more convenient. No waiting at the clinic and less time away from work and family. It is particularly useful in the current pandemic situation.
My practice is built to facilitate secure virtual consultations, and connecting with clients remotely is easy. There’s no need for fancy software on your end, as long as you’re comfortable with using the internet. Functional medicine lab kits and supplements can be shipped directly to your house. I am hoping to see clients in again clinic as soon as possible.
I expect all my clients to start feeling better within the first 4 weeks. Depending on the severity and how long symptoms have persisted, I usually sign clients off within 3-6 months.
I work with all gynaecological conditions and symptoms, however these and are often associated with symptoms in many body systems. This is why in addition to gynaecological conditions I support:
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Cardiovascular disorders (hypertension, high cholesterol)
Diabetes T2 and Pre-diabetes
Digestive Disorders (IBS, SIBO, leaky gut, Candida overgrowth, parasites, IBD, reflux, H. Pylori)
Food Allergies and Sensitivities
Infections (acute and chronic low-grade such as Candidiasis etc.)
Insomnia and Sleep Disorders
Metabolic Syndrome (pre-diabetes, insulin resistance)
Migraines and Headaches
Mold and Mycotoxins
Preconception, Pregnancy and Postpartum Health
Skin Disorders (including acne, eczema, psoriasis, vitiligo)
Stress-related Conditions and Adrenal Disorders
Please see details above. Fees do not include lab tests and interpretations of advanced lab tests, or supplements. Fees must be paid at least 3 days prior to the first appointment. Payment plans are available.
Yes payment plans are available, and I adjust each payment plan to the needs of each client. Please book a discovery call and we can discuss what is right for you.
I test, I don't guess, so I require at least standard blood tests via a trusted online lab.
I also order specialised functional laboratory testing through Invivo, Doctor’s Data, Great Plains, Genova, DUTCH, CYREX, Nutrition Genome and others.
This includes but is not limited to comprehensive stool testing, urine organic acids, nutrient levels, food sensitivity, complete hormones, cortisol (adrenal), heavy metals, genetics, mycotoxins and environmental chemicals.
Lab costs will be discussed with you during your visit, as they will require an investment on your part. Most clients spend an average of £126 – £450 in advanced lab testing.
Please let me know 3 days in advance if you are unable to see me. When you schedule an appointment, time is reserved especially for you and no one else, and cancellations are significant interruptions to my clinic. Thus, a minimum of 3 days notice is required for cancellations of new client visits and 2 days notice for existing clients.
There is a £50 visit charge for “no-shows” or late cancellations. Please let me know as soon as possible if you need to reschedule your appointment.
I don't believe that a vegetarian or vegan diet is optimal for health. As a species we have evolved to eat animal protein and fat. Through clinical experience I have found that women do best regularly eating meat, fish and eggs, which supply crucial nutrients that cannot be provided from plants. It is very difficult to optimise and sustain health with a vegetarian or vegan approach.
I am committed to resolving health issues quickly, efficiently and permanently, and this not possible to achieve with an approach that is lacking in essential nutrients.
I am happy to work with women who will eat seafood and eggs.
Please get in touch! If you have questions that haven’t been answered here please contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or better still book a discovery call.
Please book a discovery call with me via my portal.
Are you one of the hundreds of thousands of women with a gynaecological condition being forced to tolerate extreme pain and debilitating symptoms because of unacceptable NHS waiting lists for diagnosis and treatment? Consultants at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists reported in 2022:
“The reason gynaecology waiting lists have seen the biggest growth is because time and again we see women’s health consistently deprioritised and overlooked. At its core it is gender bias and it’s reflective of society as a whole. Women are being let down and change is urgently needed.”
The Royal College asked 830 women on waiting lists about the impact on their lives. Eight out of ten women said their mental health had suffered, and 77% said their condition was stopping them being able to work or socialise as normal.
Many conditions are progressive. If left untreated, they can potentially need complex or invasive surgery.
Conditions like endometriosis and fibroids can affect fertility. Some women are waiting for surgery for these conditions, before they can start fertility treatment. But there is an age limit for IVF on the NHS, and for some women it is too late.
Prior to your initial visit I will review your completed intake forms
These will be made available to you via my online portal. You will need to complete them at least 3 days prior to your visit so that I have time to review them and make a detailed analysis and draft a protocol.
At your consultation we will go through your health history, working together through my analysis of the underlying causes of your symptoms, and we will agree your initial protocol.
Ordering of tests: I require the results of standard blood tests to guide health plans. If you don’t have test results from the 3 last months then inexpensive tests can be ordered via a trusted private lab online.
Some women require additional tests to assess levels of hormones/metabolites including oestrogen, progesterone, testosterone, FSH, LH, AMH, prolactin, thyroid antibodies, cortisol, melatonin, gut microbiome and immune function. These will be ordered for you following your approval.
Receive your Health Optimisation Plan: I will get to work finalising your personalised plan, tailored specifically to you, with detailed guidance for moving forward with your health, based on the data and discussions we have had.
Your plan will include nutrition, supplementation, lifestyle recommendations. You will have the step-by-step directions to start making progress right away.
The 7 Day Intensive Detox: The initial Health Optimisation Plan most often starts with the 7 Day Intensive Detox to rapidly decrease pain and inflammation, balance blood sugar, eliminate sugar cravings and give your liver and gut a break.
The detox spans the first week of your protocol and includes: Implementation Guide, Recipe Guide, Daily Journal, Comprehensive Tracking Tools and a Toxicity Questionnaire to be done before you start and after you finish.
Follow-ups are arranged every 4 weeks and I may send you assessment forms to be completed prior to your appointment to track your progress.
At your consultation we will review your progress and make adjustments to your plan as necessary.
Expect an actionable, personalised health plan following each follow-up – including key points from our discussion, with updated supplement recommendations, nutrition guidelines and appropriate referrals, to ensure you are achieving your goals and targets.
Brief check-ins via my portal are included as part of your follow-up fee, to ensure you are fully supported throughout.
