Your initial consultation with Jabe is approximately 120 minutes (allow 150), to provide for the adequate assessment of your current health status, past medical history and develop your treatment approach. Time will be taken to gather an understanding of all the different elements that define your health, and to give you some direction and clarity around what is going on with your health. The consultation will focus on your needs and concerns and take a unique and personalised approach to the development of your treatment plan.
We ask that you bring any relevant or recent blood work and pathology results, as well as details of prescribed medication and supplements. Given our service is about making sense of your health, the more information you can provide us with, the better we can help you. Functional pathology testing may be referred for if further information is needed.
Treatment plans ALWAYS involve change of some kind, most commonly a combination of diet and lifestyle changes, and nutritional and herbal supplements.
Soon after your initial appointment, our Health Coach: Bee connects with you to answer any questions you may have, and provide any support you need to implement your treatment plan. Bee’s skill-set enables her to provide many different facets of support, inclusive of: dietary implementation advice and tips, lifestyle change support, accountability, emotional support, and sometimes a nudge, or well meaning kick in the bum.
The health coaching support you receive from Bee is ongoing in whatever manner best assists you. We find this support to be an integral part of the process of achieving significant health results with our patients; outcomes that far exceed those of standard practice.
Follow Up Consultations
Follow up consultations with Jabe are generally 35 minutes (please allow 45) – and consider the effectiveness of treatments underway, seek to gain further insight into the presenting condition, or explore other issues.
Phone and Skype video consultations are available for people who are unable to make it to the clinic due to location, time constraints or illness. If required, supplements may be sent via post. When booking, please make sure to book a Remote Consultation and provide your phone number, or Skype username. We’ll take an initial consultation booking deposit when we follow up to welcome you to the practice.
Private Health Insurance Rebates
Being a member of the Australian Natural Therapists Association (ANTA) verifies Jabe’s credentials, and enables patients to claim health rebates on the spot with HICAPS for most healthcare providers (subject to the level of insurance cover).
