Nutritional Consultation (Initial Visit): (60-90 minutes)
This is the first stage in moving towards a healthier, happier you. During the nutritional consultation we will discuss your nutritional questionnaire and together we can establish what your goals are. We will also take a look at your food diary and look at the first steps in creating a better diet that works for you. This service includes preparation time, the appointment and a post consultation report.
Follow-up visits: (60 minutes)
We recommend a follow-up visit around 4 weeks after your initial consultation. Here we can talk further about the next steps in changing your diet and lifestyle as well as possible laboratory or G.P. tests and supplements. The number of follow up consultations varies between people, but whatever happens we recommend popping back for a visit at least every 6 months to avoid falling back into bad habits! This service includes preparation time, the appointment and a post consultation report.
We also offer some other services that might help you to stay focused on the changes that you need to make which can be used in combination with the appointments above:
Telephone catch up/support: (15 minutes)
Ideal if you need that extra bit of support to keep you on track.
Weekly check-in (10 minutes)
We understand that making the recommended changes to your diet and lifestyle is difficult which is why we offer a weekly check-in service. This involves emailing a weekly food diary, followed by a 15 minute Skype or telephone conversation. This helps you to stay motivated and on track whilst allowing us to tweak your diet and see where you may be going wrong. It’s the perfect aid to weight loss or to keep you on track for other changes!
One-2-One food shopping trip (60 minutes)
If you find the supermarket an overwhelming place to make healthy decisions or struggle to find inspiration that fits with your recommendations then let us come along with you to point you in the right direction.
This is a basic analysis of what you are eating using information from a 5 day food diary. It offers general advice about eating a more balanced diet.

Private Health Care
Nicola Ragon is an approved nutritionist for PruHealth and consultation charges may be covered by your private health care. Always check with your provider first.
Clients who are members of the private health cash plan providers Westfield Health and Health Shield may also be able to claim for the cost of consultations. Again please check with your provider first.
It’s always worth checking with your private health care provider to see if they will offer reimbursement for consultations under your policy. We are happy to liaise with these companies and provide any information necessary.
