Now, finally, there is a sensible, realistic and easy to follow guide on how to eating well. From the comfort of your own home and at your own pace.

This bundle is designed for anyone who wants to have a better relationship with food and look and feel great.

Do you:

  • want to look and feel better?
  • have a tricky relationship with food?
  • want to know more about nutrition and how our bodies use nutrients?
  • feel doomed to be “on a diet” for the rest of your life?
  • hate diets?
  • want to stop thinking about food all day?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, this bundle is for YOU.

How to begin an initial nutrition consultation

A free mini-course with my tried and tested method of starting an initial nutrition consultation with a new client.

This mini-course is designed for:

  • student nutritionists
  • pre-placement student dietitians
  • anyone starting out in clinic
  • anyone wanting to improve their nutrition consultation skills and confidence.

For a more in-depth course covering the 5 steps to running a nutrition consultation from start to finish with confidence, plus how to manage follow-up consultations; how to deal with tricky clients and setting up your clinic room to best effect please see my course Nutrition Consultations with Confidence. This course has over 40 lessons, with a mixture of video content, downloadable resources and activities to get you feeling confident in running all your consultations and nutrition clinics.

For Nutritionists: Consultations with Confidence

An in-depth look at the 5 steps to running a consultation with confidence, plus follow-ups, how to deal with tricky clients and setting up your clinic room to best effect.

This course is for nutritionists who know the nutrition part already, but want to be more confident at the client consultation part.

It’s a “virtual shadowing” experience showing what I have learned about running a nutrition consultation from over 1,500 hours of one-to-one sessions.

After taking this course you will know how to:

  • put the client at ease
  • progress through a consultation in an ordered way
  • ask the right questions to gather the most relevant information
  • provide a plan that will help the client achieve their goals
  • end the consultation with the client having got what they were looking for

It took me years of trial and error in consultations to learn this. I want to save you the time so you (and your clients) can have confidence in yourself and you can get on with passing on your nutrition knowledge.

This course is designed for:

  • student nutritionists
  • pre-placement student dietitians
  • anyone starting out in clinic
  • anyone wanting to improve their consultation skills and confidence.

Course Content

Over 40 lessons that include a mixture of video, text, activities and downloadable resources.

  • Setting up the in-person or online clinic room
  • Beginning the initial consultation
  • Information gathering
  • Making the plan
  • Ending the consultation
  • Taking notes
  • Follow-up consultations
  • Dealing with tricky consultations and clients


A note on the recipes…

Some of the recipes here have been adapted over the years from ones I have found in books and online, or have been given to me by friends or clients. For some I don’t know the origin to give credit. I can’t take credit for them anyway, but I can say that they are all well-tested and eaten regularly in our house.

For most recipes you can adapt them as you like, swapping vegetables or meat, using noodles instead of rice etc. So if you don’t have the exact ingredients, feel free to change it up and experiment with what you do have.

You can also adapt recipes to fit the plate model and your hand size measures.

For example, if you are making a Bolognese sauce then measure the food groups as you put the ingredients in. If it is a six-portion Bolognese sauce then you know you need roughly six palm-sized portions of minced beef in it. You could also measure out the carrots, onions, celery and tomatoes so you know how many handfuls go into a portion. And then when you serve it you know how much extra salad you should add and have it with a fist-sized pile of pasta. And you don’t have to be exact. Remember: it’s a guide and a little bit either side will make hardly any difference.

Getting Your Head Around Making Changes to Your Diet

It’s taken a lifetime to get where you are with your eating, and it can take time and effort to change. It can be easy at first but you may find yourself slipping back to old habits.

This course covers everything you need to know about how to make these changes for good.
