Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

PCOS is the most common hormonal disorder seen in women, and it can have a profound impact on a woman’s health, both physical and mental. It’s little wonder that so many women with PCOS feel like they’re on a dieting merry-go-round.

For years, the prevailing medical advice has been to lose weight in order to ‘treat’ the condition. But as any woman who has ever been on a diet knows, losing weight is no easy feat – and it’s even harder when you’re dealing with hormonal issues. Not to mention the fact that most diets are ineffective in the long term. In fact, some women find that their weight actually increases after starting a diet, due to the way that restrictive eating can trigger disordered eating patterns and yo-yo dieting.

The root cause of PCOS is still not fully understood, but it is thought to be linked to hormonal imbalance and low-level chronic inflammation. While there is no cure for PCOS, the condition and the associated symptoms can be managed through lifestyle changes.

It is a complex condition that presents differently in every woman. It can cause a range of symptoms, from irregular periods and weight gain to fertility problems and excessive hair growth. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to managing PCOS. I will work with you to design a personalised plan that meets your unique needs and helps you achieve your desired results.

A Revolution in Client Consultations

I began offering digi-clinics back in 2016 alongside in-person appointments at a private hospital in Canary Wharf, London. The demand for digi-clinics grew for many reasons, including equality in accessibility, timing flexibility and being in the comfort of your own environment. I offer appointments using a selection of the most popular video-calling platforms including:

Zoom

Skype

Facetime

Programmes Tailored To You

Whether you are looking for a comprehensive programme or just a few sessions to get started, I am here to help you reach your goals. My programmes are designed for each individual client. Depending on a client’s needs, a programme may include a nutrition- only or a combined approach, for example some nutrition sessions alongside hypnotherapy, or psychology appointments. The duration of the programmes is usually between 8 and 24 weeks.

Consultation Structure

Initial
Whether you choose to book your appointments one by one or go for a package option, it all starts with a 1 - 1.5 hour comprehensive assessment to discuss your condition and how it is impacting on your life and determine your current nutrition status, dietary habits, challenges, and your personal health goals. From there, together we will create a road-map of your care, both personalised and practical to help you manage your symptoms, optimise your health and build healthy habits.

Follow Up
These appointments usually last up to 60 minutes and are there to review your progress with the goals that were set in the initial appointment and decide on the next course of action. They are also an opportunity to discuss any questions, challenges or concerns. You may have as few or as many follow up appointments as you feel necessary.
