What to expect from an initial consultation: The first consultation will be 1 hour long, and will include an in-depth review of your current and previous diet, weight and medical history; we will explore your food-related issues together, your expectations and key areas you think should be highlighted in the nutritional plan. Together we will formulate an action plan and establish some goals that are realistic and achievable to achieve positive results. All nutritional guidance will be individualised to suit your needs and fit in with your lifestyle, to successfully achieve visible long-term changes.
1st Follow-up Session: the sesson lasts 45 minutes. Here we examine further your nutritional action plan, cover any specific areas in more depth, discuss any testing you make have undertaken and make further dietary and lifestyle changes.
Subsequent Follow-up Session: the session lasts 15-30 minutes. During these sessions we look at how you have progressed since your initial consultation, adapt the nutritional plan and address any new issues that may have arisen.
I am at hand between consultations for short email questions regarding your intervention.
Prior to your appointment: You can book an initial consultation directly on my homepage, which has an integrated self-referral form enabling you to describe your circumstances and background. For certain conditions, I may also ask you to complete a 3-day food diary which, if required, needs to be returned to me at least two days in advance of the consultation to allow me enough time to assess it.
*Please contact Expert Dietitian Brussels if you would like to know more about more about other areas of nutrition and health not listed above or if you would simply like to discuss your requirements and how I can be of help.
SUCCESSFUL WEIGHT LOSS CLIENT
I met Sophie as I needed a dietitian to help me lose weight and to regain confidence and control over my eating habits; I also was conscious of the health consequences associated with being overweight, and wanted to address this head-on.
During our first session, we discussed my dietary habits and established an action plan which included a portion-control strategy: and it worked! The weight steadily came off as I began to have a better understanding of the principles of healthy eating. This also had a positive impact psychologically, as I began to feel happier in myself and my body. I was seeing Sophie every two weeks to maintain the motivation, and to receive guidance and direction.
Thanks to Sophie´s advice and my commitment (and willpower!) I lost 13 kg in 3 months. I highly recommend Sophie, who is always supportive, providing helpful, sensible advice. Sophie is non-judgmental and accompanies you on this journey.
