Claire Forster - Naturopath

 

What to Expect

Pre-consultation phone call

All new clients begin with a free, 10 minute pre-consultation phone call.  This is an opportunity for you to ask me any questions you might have about naturopathy.  I will also ask you a few questions about you and your health so that I can do the necessary preparation before your first appointment.  This helps to ensure that you get the most benefit from your appointment.

Health history form

Prior to your appointment I will ask you to download and fill in a  Health History form.  Allow approximately 15 minutes to complete the form and bring it with you to your appointment.

Mineral assessment

I may also ask you to complete a mineral assessment.  This is an online questionnaire which takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.

First appointment

At your first appointment we will review your Health History form and discuss in more detail the main reason(s) you came to see me.

I will then do a couple of non-invasive health checks (blood pressure and pulse) as well as look at some of the more traditional naturopathic body signs (nails, tongue and iris).

At the end of the consultation I will make my recommendations and explain the reasoning behind these recommendations so that you leave feeling like you have a clear direction.  I will also make sure there is enough time to answer any questions that you may have.

Subsequent appointments

I generally advise two follow-up appointments - the first one approximately two to three weeks after your initial appointment and the second one ideally around six to eight weeks later (if appropriate, these can be done via phone).  This is just a guideline and there is plenty of flexibility to accommodate your individual requirements.

In the follow-up appointments we will review your symptoms and make any necessary adjustments or additions to the recommendations made during your first consultation.

Further follow-up appointments can be made at any stage that you feel you need additional support.
