Terms and Conditions

Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, optimal performance, and individual care.

The degree of benefit obtainable from Nutritional Therapy may vary between clients with similar health problems and following a similar Nutritional Therapy programme.

The NP may recommend nutraceutical (food supplements) and/or functional testing as part of your programme and may receive a commission on these products or services.

The NP

The Company and the NPs provide nutritional therapy services aimed at optimising client health and wellness through nutrition and lifestyle advice. Where feasible that advice will also be aimed at environmentally sustainable nutrition.

The naturopathic nutritional advice will be tailored to suit the Client based on any medically diagnosed conditions, medications, or health concerns identified and agreed between the NP and the Client.

Payment

Payment should be made via the Website or electronically or other suitable means of £100 for the initial appointment at the time of booking.

Additional telephone or email support will be subject to a fee of £15 for 15 minutes.

The Consultations

The Client will need an internet connection. Appointments may be booked online at the Website or by telephone or email (info@givcanutrition.co.uk) ideally at least one week in advance.

The client will be asked to complete a pre-consultation comprehensive health questionnaire along with a 3-day diet diary and return these to the NP by email at least 72 hours (3 days) in advance of the consultation. Terms and conditions must be signed or agreed to by email by the client before starting and returned to the NP along with the pre-consultation comprehensive health questionnaire and diet diary in advance of the initial consultation. 

The NP will have the initial 60-minutes consultation on line via the Skype or Zoom platform with the Client during which the NP will collect information and data relevant to design the Plan. The NP will provide the Plan to the Client within 5 working days.

The Plan will then be discussed at a further online 15-30 minutes consultation to ensure it suits the Client’s lifestyle and budget. This consultation will be arranged with the Client to suit their availability once the Plan is finalised. 

A follow-up appointment is fixed for around 4 -6 weeks thereafter for around an hour. 

Any additional telephone support or email will be given as required and is subject to a fee as above. 

If the Client needs to cancel his or her appointment, he/she must provide the NP with at least 24 hours' notice otherwise the full fee will still be charged.
