WHY WE WORK TOGETHER IN PACKAGES
I prefer to work with you when the timing is right and you are ready to commit to making changes. Making changes to something as personal as food, when related to the sacred window of our fertility, pregnancy and postpartum, can be hard.
For many of us, food is a safe and familiar constant in our life and we need not only time, but the proper support to help us navigate our way through a life transformation.
Everything meaningful starts with a baby step.
Usually, the first baby step is noticing what’s going on with yourself today. Right now.
Together, we can get past any initial challenges and continue to push ahead into new territory.
Additionally, the process of testing, receiving and evaluating any results, as well as implementing the necessary changes is also a process that takes time.
This is an exciting time to invest time in you and the health of your baby.
I ONLY TAKE 4 CLIENTS AT ANY ONE TIME
I believe in keeping a balance between caring for my family and working with clients and importantly taking good care of myself so I can bring the best to you, my client, and my family.
If you have signed up to one of my 3 month 1:1 coaching packages, you are eligible for an upgrade to one of the other packages with a discount. This can be discussed separately.
WHAT IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE PACKAGE COST
Any supplements and any functional testing I recommend.
HEALTH IS A DYNAMIC PROCESS
It is ever evolving - there is no finish line - our bodies are always trying to bring us into balance - that is why I look to make sustainable changes so you can continue the work on your own. I also prefer to cast your wellbeing vision, rather than a goal, so we are always in tune with how you want to feel and be.
WHAT IS THE FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE APPROACH?
Health is the balanced and dynamic integration between our environment, body, mind, and spirit.
It is essential to recognise that nothing works in isolation. There is a flow on effect with everything. Our physical, mental, emotional and energetic aspects all impact one another.
We are all individuals. No one in the Universe is exactly like YOU genetically (twins excepted, of course).
Nobody’s physical, emotional and spiritual past, present and future was, is and will be exactly like yours. You are unique.
I work with you to adapt to your life situation. We are flexible and committed to making sustainable choices.
COOPERATION WITH ANY MEDICAL PROFESSIONS
Cooperation with your doctors and healthcare professionals. Alison wishes to be part of your wellbeing team.
THE CONSULTATION PROCESS
I spend most of this time listening to YOU, your story, your goals, what is important to YOU and YOUR individual circumstances. I intend to be fully present and curious, asking meaningful questions while staying focused on your goals.
The work does not stop when you leave my clinic room - research, research, research is always part of the process. I will spend time looking at the latest scientific research and applying this to your case. If we do decide to undertake any tests, I will analyse these and interpret these and apply them to our wellbeing plan.
WHAT WILL WE COVER IN THE CONSULTATIONS
This time belongs to YOU so you can decide what you would like to discuss. You may wish to discuss any challenges you have had and any new symptoms that may have arisen. We can also discuss the results of any functional tests ordered and slowly introduce new changes to your plan as our time together progresses.
DO THE CONSULTATIONS IN EACH PACKAGE HAVE TO BE USED WITHIN EITHER 3 OR 6 MONTHS?
Yes, they need to be used within the consultation package period of either 3 - 6 months. However, in relation to the Fertility and Pregnancy programme, it may be that you fall pregnant during the Fertility programme or you book the Pregnancy Package towards the end of your pregnancy. In these cases, we can carry over the consultations into your pregnancy or postpartum period, as applicable, but they should be used within either 3 or 6 months of the Initial Consultation, depending on the package.
