Prices are up to date as of 20th July, 2020. Prices are in Australian dollars.
Pre-payment is required for all consultations. Prices are reflective of the value I provide to all my clients and the time spent on their case.
- The first consultation runs for 60 minutes at $260. What's included?
- The second consultation runs for 35-45 minutes and is $150.
- The third consultation with Report of Findings runs for 40 minutes and is $110.
- Thereafter, standard follow ups are $80 for 30 minutes.
- I also offer longer follow up consultations where required – 45 mins for $110. These may be used for example when new areas need to be addressed, complex cases, pathology review or a client hasn’t seen me for over 3 months.
- Acute 10-15 minute telephone/Zoom consults for $35 for existing clients that require between-consult check-ins or have an acute issue, eg. flu, sore throat, injury. This can also be done by email if preferred.
- Email support between consultations - $2.50 per minute. This can be used if you have any new questions between consultations - for example if you'd like to adjust your treatment or would like my input about something before your next consultation. If a question is to clarify something already discussed in a consultation (eg. dosing information), there is no charge.
- Treatment plan changes between consultations - $2.50 per minute. This is only to be used for small changes. This covers my time choosing supplement/s, updating your prescription in Vital.ly and your treatment plan.
- Payment plans are available - please enquire.
What's included in the first consultation
The first consultation is a comprehensive process allowing me to understand the details of your case. This includes our actual 60 minute consultation time and also time I spend alone reviewing your case. In total, approximately 3 hours is spent on your case for the first consultation.
This process includes:
- a thorough pre-consultation review of your health history
- review of one set of standard pathology results*
- your 60 minute consultation on Zoom or Skype
- post-consultation research/reflection to start the Report of Findings
- write up your initial treatment suggestions
- prescription of required supplements at a discount wherever possible
*standard pathology refers to blood tests not more than 12 months old
What's included in follow up consultations
- A formal Report of Findings is included with the cost of the third consultation. This is a thorough summary of your case, including nutritional and naturopathic diagnoses. Please note that if your case is quite complex and diagnosis is taking longer than expected, the report may be pushed back to a later appointment.
- Written treatment plans/prescriptions are provided after each consultation. These may be provided the day after the consultation.
- Prescription of supplements at a discount wherever possible.
Important Notes including Repeat Prescriptions
- Follow ups or Q&A sessions can also be conducted over email, charged at the same prices as above for follow ups
- New treatment plans, treatment adjustments and review/collection of pathology results require a consultation.
- Prescription repeats are only available to ongoing clients who have an appointment at least every 3 months. If your condition is relatively stable, you can book in for an acute session. Because I have an ethical obligation before I prescribe anything, I am unable to provide repeats without at least an acute consultation.
- Australian health funds do not cover Zoom, telephone and email consultations - hopefully this will change given how helpful it is for many people. Please check with your insurance if you live somewhere outside of Australia to check coverage.
I offer "non-treatment" consultations - 45 minutes for $160 or $180 for 60 minutes. These are perfect for people who are looking for more insight in to their case or a second opinion, if they have already been working with a practitioner but feel there might be more going on. As these are a "one-off", they do not constitute treatment because that requires ongoing monitoring and most conditions I see are chronic. They do give an overview of the general treatment approach I would take in your case, provide you with clarity and can give you some ideas of what direction to take. This option also gives you an opportunity to ask me anything you would like about nutrition or health in general. If you do decide to go ahead with more formal treatment after a "one-off", I discount the first consultation by $60.
Pathology Interpretation Services
These services are available for both ongoing clients and one-off reports if you are already working with another healthcare provider. They do not constitute diagnosis or treatment of a medical condition.
A questionnaire will be sent to you to complete before I review your test/s.
- Review of one set of standard pathology (no more than 2 months old) - $80
- Thryve test review and interpretation - $80 per report
- Genova GI Effects and Diagnostic Insight GI Map review and interpretation $100 per report
- Genova or Great Plains Organic Acids test $100 per report
- Nutrigenomic tests - this interpretation is available to existing clients only, because your genetics don't necessarily equate to what is actually going on in your body.
- If you end up booking in with me as a client *after* purchasing a report, I will discount your initial consultation fee by $50.
Important: pathology interpretations do not constitute a medical diagnosis or treatment. If I suspect you have a medical condition, I will always refer you back to your medical practitioner for assessment. These services are to assess your nutrition or gut microbiome status and to determine if there is anything that needs addressing from a diet or lifestyle perspective.
Payment Options and Policies
- Payment options include Paypal (all clients), bank transfer (Aus clients only)
- All consultation fees must be paid prior to the appointment – I will invoice you via Paypal unless you prefer a bank transfer (Australian customers only). Consultations cannot go ahead without pre-payment.
Changes or cancellations to consultation bookings require a minimum of 24 hours otherwise 30% of the fee is payable. As a small business owner, I appreciate your understanding. A last minute cancellation may prevent someone else who needs a consultation from booking in.
Pathology and Supplement Costs
- Pathology testing (eg. blood, stool, urine) is often required to confirm a nutritional diagnosis and/or to monitor treatment. These costs are not included in consultation fees – costs will be provided to you up front. GPs may sometimes run the tests if they agree there is a need.
- Nutritional supplements are prescribed if appropriate, but only if absolutely needed. Costs for supplements are available via the relevant website (eg. Vital.ly or iHerb) – costs are not included in consultation fees. I discount supplements to all clients ordering through Vital.ly
- If a supplement is ordered by me specifically for you, payment must be made upfront.
- No refund is available after pathology or supplements are ordered/purchased.
- If you require an individualised meal plan or a written pathology interpretation (eg. for organic acids or comprehensive stool testing), this can be provided at additional cost as these take time to prepare outside of consultations, based on your needs and personal preferences. High quality standardised meal plans are also available.
