Nutritional Therapy

Are you confused by some of the conflicting messages you may have come across regarding health and nutrition? I can offer some clarity on this, as well as devising for you a clear and practical programme, tailored to your specific needs.

The first appointment will take 90 minutes during which we will cover your current concerns, your medical and family history and, of course, your diet. We will talk about how you can move forward with a dietary and supplement protocol plus lifestyle advice, targeted to your particular situation. You will also be given a collection of recipes.

Fees include my time spent researching and preparing your programme before and after your consultation. A follow up consultation is usually held 4 weeks later in order to monitor progress.

When necessary, diagnostic tests can be arranged for thyroid function, adrenal function, gut health etc.

See Consultations page for fees and the packages offered

“My first consultation was relaxed and very friendly and I felt able to talk openly about my physical and mental state without any judgment on Vanessa’s behalf. She was comforting and gave me hope that there were things we could do to help me”

Wellbeing Coaching

Wellbeing coaching is a powerful and inspirational way of exploring what you really want from life. I can give you the tools to close the gap between where you are and where you would like to be. Coaching can enable you to recognise patterns of beliefs and behaviour which may be holding you back from achieving what you want. This applies to nutritional health but also other areas of your life too.

Poor self esteem, feeling unfulfilled in your job or experiencing challenging relationships, for example, can have a considerable impact on your physical and emotional wellbeing.

If you’re at a place in your life where you’re feeling stuck, then I can give you the confidence to move forward and actively participate in all aspects of your health and wellbeing. Wellbeing coaching can help to awaken your intuition, giving you greater insight into who you truly are.

Wellbeing coaching, grief coaching and family dynamics sessions all take place weekly or fortnightly.

“Unsure what to expect, but approaching my wellbeing coaching sessions with an open mind, I have found the experience to be a very positive and empowering one”

Holistic Grief Coaching

I offer an integrated approach to grief and take into consideration how it can affect mind, body and spirit. I have personal experience of how devastating loss can be so you will be working with someone who really gets it. This can make a significant difference. I aim to be a compassionate voice in a sea of unhelpful platitudes and unrealistic expectations and I can give you some tools to ease a challenging path. You can read more here about how I can support you.

“Every holistic grief coaching session with Vanessa offered me insight and hope, along with strategies to work with”

Family Dynamics

This is wellbeing coaching specifically for the parents or siblings of those with a chronic physical or mental health issue such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME, an eating disorder, depression etc and can provide much needed support for family members under stress. It can be difficult to stand by and see someone you love suffering and you may benefit from your own practitioner. I provide family dynamics sessions as part of a team at The Chrysalis Effect.
