NUTRITION



Our qualified nutritionists work with your staff on a 1-on-1 basis, confidentially coaching them through health and nutrition concerns, helping them set realistic and attainable goals for improved health and diet. Diet will form a major part of our conversation, but we'll also look at the whole spectrum of wellbeing, discussing the client's stress levels, sleep patterns, exercise regime and any other health and lifestyle complaints. Consider these consultations a personal 'MOT' helping your staff live their lives with optimal health and vitality.


Clients will be asked to complete and return a confidential health history form prior to their session. Consultations can take place in a small, quiet meeting room. When booking, we request a minimum of 4 sessions and maximum of 10 sessions in 1 day.
