NUTRITION

What does the word ‘nutrition’ mean to you?

Diet? Self-deprivation? Calorie-counting? Yo-Yo weight
Maybe you’re thinking about dieting.

The word nutrition is about none of these things. Neither is it about chewing a chip butty, eating a pizza in front of the PC or a hamburger on the hoof.

The body functions best when provided with suitably nourishing foods, which are absorbed and used physiologically and biochemically by the body systems. If proper nutrition is absent, certain health problems may arise. For example:

Arthritis, asthma, atherosclerosis, candida, cystitis, depression, eczema, high blood pressure, irritable bowel syndrome, PMT, problems with weight, digestion, menopause, thyroid and other hormonal imbalances.

Sound nutritional advice may help all of these.

THE NUTRITIONAL CONSULTATION

What does it involve?

The initial nutrition consultation takes one and a half hours. Before it, you will have completed a questionnaire about your medical history, current symptoms and dietary habits. This is assessed in advance and forms the basis for detailed discussion during the session.
In light of the dialogue, you gain an understanding of how your body functions. The advice given is geared to your individual food intolerances (if you have any), likes dislikes and lifestyle.

Natural supplements may also be prescribed to rebalance the body and encourage it to work more efficiently.

In some cases simple tests for Candida, food intolerances, female hormone levels and adrenal stress may be recommended.

FOLLOW-UP APPOINTMENTS

These last 45 minutes and are usually arranged at four to six-weekly intervals, from between one, to a maximum of four, consultations in most cases.

Our APPROACH

The essential ingredient of the treatment will always be a supportive approach as our style is friendly and relaxed, always flexible and never rigid or dogmatic.

Changing the habits of a lifetime is always a challenge. We understand this and encourages a light-hearted approach to the more serious underlying issues.

Clients are relieved to discover that they are listened to and that sometimes it is all right to indulge and occasionally ‘break the rules.’
You, the client, in your situation and lifestyle, are of paramount importance.

Creating Meaning in your work and living a meaningful life

Most of us at some time face change in our lives which makes us question what we’re doing or why.

Most of us want to be the best we can be.

LifeWork coaching helps people in times of uncertainty to manage change and adapt to new circumstances.

Personal and professional growth occurs most readily when people are open to focusing on their inner motivations and inhibitors; how they treat both themselves and others; and the set of values and assumptions that they live and work by.

Our best year yet… and there’s more to come!

We’d like to say a big THANK YOU to all of our clients… the last 12 months have seen a huge increase in activity at the Wren.  It has been our best year ever and what a great high to be entering our 20th Anniversary on.  This time last year the City was in the doldrums, with many people very uncertain about their futures.  Although the uncertainty is far from over, there’s a gentle air of renewed confidence returning and we welcome this.  Under pressure to deliver ever tougher targets, despite lots of confusing messages and depressing news almost every day, it is hardly surprising that many people turned to the Wren – an oasis of calm in the centre of a stormy City – to find relief of many kinds from their anxieties.

 

Partly as a result of this, partly in preparation for the 20th Anniversary, and probably for lots of other reasons too, we are embarking on a few substantial changes at the Clinic – BUT PLEASE DON’T PANIC!  To the outside world, business should continue unaffected.  The main change is that we are transferring most of our activities to their rightful place within our parent charity, The All Hallows House Foundation.  To most people the only difference will be a change of name on their cheques.

 

Watch out for more news though, as we expect to be launching some innovations in the near future which we hope will be of great benefit to many of you.

 

If you have ANY questions, do ask your therapist, the Reception staff, or ask to be put in touch with one of the management team or Trustees.
