Nutrition Counselling

What is Nutrition Counselling?

Nutrition Counselling is a process by which a health professional with special training in Nutrition helps people make healthy food choices and form healthy eating habits; it is an evidence-based intervention that can help to promote health, reduce risk, and manage health conditions. Furthermore, Nutrition Counselling works to help clients understand aspects of their health and puts a focus on practical actions and behavioral changes to address individual needs for nutrition, as well as mental and emotional wellbeing. 

What ailments and discomforts can be soothed by Holistic Health and Nutrition Counselling?

Individuals needing support to navigate their health journey, whether it be weight management for overall health, acute or chronic illness management, improving digestion and gut health, easing inflammatory conditions as well as those experiencing body image issues, poor motivation, anxiety, stress, and overwhelm caused by information overload from the diet industry. 

Others who may benefit are those who are looking to incorporate a holistic approach to their healing and well-being – mind, body, and soul in effort to find balance, ease, and a happier, healthier life overall. 

What are the benefits?

Providing easily digestible information to educate clients about their specific health needs equips individuals to make connections between their ailments or concerns and their daily choices, this, in turn, enables one to take their health into their own hands so that they can ease their symptoms and manage their health effectively for the long term. Having more autonomy regarding one’s health not only empowers individuals, it enables them to be in charge of their own wellness – this can result in less reliance on the healthcare system, less need for prescription medications, and a greater understanding of what is and what is not helpful information from the diet industry.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this the same as a Dietician?

No. While there are similarities, as a Natural Wellness Practitioner, Health Coach and Herbalist, I look at a larger picture than the physical body or illnesses that one may be experiencing. I work to form an individualized plan with each client, taking into account their health history, dietary and lifestyle habits, spiritual belief systems, the overall constitution of a person, and their specific energy. I use a combination of the Western Medical System of knowledge and Eastern Medical Philosophy to reach the best management approach for each client. 

Why does the first session cost more?

During our first full session, we complete a comprehensive health history and decide what the clients goals are, and then form a plan as to how we will reach those goals. This can be an intensive process and a lot of information will be covered in the initial session, it will form the basis for how we will work together in upcoming sessions.

What if I don’t really want to focus on my health and just want to lose weight?

You are welcome to contact me for more information but those who will benefit the most from these services are clients who are interested in managing weight within the context of achieving a higher level of health and wellness.

How do I know if this is right for me? 

I recommend scheduling a free 30-minute health consultation with me where we can talk more about your needs and your goals and allow you to ask more questions to determine if this is a good fit. 

Is this covered under my insurance? 

This service may be covered under your health spending account. Please check your individual coverage. We must receive full payment and a receipt will be provided to you for reimbursement to eligible plans.
