A consultation with Raquel

What makes a consultation with Raquel unique?

Being able to offer reiki as well as nutritional therapy means that, if and when appropriate, I am able to offer support at all levels, creating a truly holistic approach to my client’s health and wellbeing.

I believe that there is a mind-body-soul connection and that all need to be balanced to achieve a state of wellbeing

I also believe in the inter-connectedness of the body. My background in data analysis and statistics means that I can use my logical mind to analyse my client’s information and connect different symptoms, which may appear uncorrelated, until I build a picture that gets me to the root cause of my client’s health condition. Only by tackling the root cause of a health issue will there be permanent long term health improvements.

Nutritional Therapy Consultation

Initial Consultation

Prior to the initial consultation you will be sent a food diary and a short questionnaire to complete that will help me build an initial picture of you. An initial consultation lasts between 1 hour to 1 hour and 30 minutes.

I believe that lifestyle as well as diet plays a big part in health. I will help you to understand this, and how lifestyle changes can support all areas of health including emotional and psychological well-being

During this time, I will gather information about your health through careful history taking. We will discuss all your body systems, I will ask you about your health from birth to present day, your level of physical exercise, your lifestyle, life stresses and dietary habits (using your completed food diary as reference). I will explain how I believe that these factors may be contributing to your health issues. I will also ask you about the areas of your health that you would like to optimize, or goals that you wish to achieve.

From this, a nutritional programme will be developed that is completely unique to you and that works for you. Your treatment plan will reflect the goals that we agree for you, and it is likely to include nutritional advice, lifestyle changes and, if necessary, supplements on a short term basis. I may also recommend laboratory testing, including genetic testing, to help provide a more detailed picture of a certain aspect of your health.

Follow-up nutrition consultations

Follow-up consultations usually last about 30-40 min, and enable us to review your progress and make appropriate adjustments to your treatment plan. I would normally recommend a follow up 4-6 weeks after the initial consultation. However, we will agree on this together as each person and nutritional programme is different.

Why are follow-ups necessary?

Nutritional therapy is a step by step process, working towards an end goal. Therefore several sessions are usually required in order to complete this process. Follow-ups are your opportunity to ask any questions about your ongoing treatment and discuss any changes you are experiencing. You may have undergone tests or been asked to see your GP concerning a health issue. Follow-ups are where you learn about your results or other health information and what this means in relation to your nutritional programme.

Reiki Consultation

You will need to allow 1.5 hours for your first appointment. Subsequent appointments will be 1 hour.

During the first appointment I will ask you a few questions about your medical history and current health. We will also discuss your reasons for wanting a treatment and what you would like to get out of it. Finally, I will explain briefly how the treatment will be carried out.

I offer both online and face-to-face reiki treatments.
