What happens during a consultation?

When you come for your consultation, you will have been asked to complete a confidential questionnaire beforehand. During the initial session, which lasts an hour, a thorough case history is taken to build up a detailed picture of your health.

You will be provided with an eating programme which will fit practically into your lifestyle. Usually a few carefully selected supplements will be suggested in addition to the food programme, to bring the body back into balance. It is then recommended that you come for a follow up appointment to assess progress and make any adjustments, in 4–6 weeks time. From one to three follow ups are required depending on the individual case.

Testimonial

I would recommend Penny to everyone with my eyes closed, she helped me get my life back! For the first time I feel my age, and healthy, vibrant with oodles of energy and the weight just seems to melt off me. And the best part is this doesn’t even feel like a diet because I can eat quite a lot and never get hungry. I could feel the difference from the first day itself, what better motivation do you need? I no longer glug gallons of coffee on a daily basis, I can’t remember the last time I had a craving for sugar (especially significant since previously I would have happily killed anyone getting in the way of me and cake) and I this time I barely even noticed I had my period, as opposed to being laid up in bed in pain and being a stroppy, cranky nightmare! I have even started to enjoy cooking because now I know whatever I am eating is good for my mind and body and this inspires me to get creative in the kitchen. And all this in just four weeks! I love that I have the energy to do all the things I want and enjoy my life the way I believe I am meant to, and I thank Penny from the bottom of my heart for helping me achieve this.
