Project Description

Children’s Clinic

Ideal if your child has symptoms or a diagnosis, you need support to improve their health and nutrition, or you want to bring their bounce back

Does your child deal with development, gut, sleeping, feeding, behaviour or immunity issues?

My children’s clinic is the place for your little or big one if they are wheezy or itchy, anxious or irritable, struggling with concentrating at school or just seem to catch every bug doing the rounds.

Let’s work together to find out what nutrition and lifestyle changes could help them feel healthy, happy and bright. I love working with children because as they start to feel better, their enthusiasm for continuing to eat better just keeps growing!

Babies are also welcome in my clinic. Reflux and colic-type symptoms, suspected food intolerances or allergies can make meeting your baby’s nutritional needs and weaning that bit more challenging. I have lots of experience of helping parents of even fussy babies to introduce and expand their food repertoire.

Please click here to arrange a free 20 minute consultation to discuss whether nutritional therapy would be right for your child.

It takes time and the right kind of support to address health issues in children, who need to work at their own pace. We have lots of tools and ideas to help them adjust to a healthier way of eating and being, with plenty of time built into the programme.

This specialist programme is for your child if you can relate to any of the following:

  • You are dealing with symptoms

  • Development, gut, sleeping, behaviour or immunity issues

  • Restrictive habits around eating

  • Feeling that progress isn’t happening without external help

  • Your child is lethargic, or more frequently sick compared to their friends

How it works

The programme enables us to be in contact every week; to review their progress, provide you with motivation and support, and to identify any changes and support your child needs to make progress:

  • An initial 90 minute consultation where we assess their health, nutrition and lifestyle in depth

  • Personalised health improvement plans to support you at home

  • Any questions you have related to their health and nutrition needs

  • Medication and nutrient interaction check (if relevant)

  • Supplement plan

  • Recommendations and interpretation of clinical tests

  • Two x 45 minute follow up consultations

  • Four 30 minute progress review calls

  • Email support

  • Personalised recipes to inspire you with the kind of food you enjoy most

  • 10% discount on supplements via The Natural Dispensary

The sessions need to be taken within a 14-week window

After we have completed your child’s programme we will review whether you will need support for their next stage. You may feel you have everything you need, or you may wish to put further support in place.

Success Stories

I found both our sessions extremely helpful Helen. Its very rare for me to get the chance to sit and think with someone about what I have been eating and what I am giving to [my child]. I found that you gave me a good balance of new information and reassurance that I wasn’t completely off track. I didn’t feel overwhelmed and felt encouraged and motivated. I have really appreciated knowing I can contact you too.

Client, Condition - Child Feeding & Allergies

My 4 year old is and has always been an extremely fussy eater. She took ages to wean off the breast and would eat only very few things – plain pasta, pasta bolognaise, apple puree and apple slices! And that was it. I got worried about her growth and I got bored of making the same things day in day out! Eventually I asked Helen Monk for some help with this issue and I found her advice most useful. As she has children of a similar age she understood the practical side of things. She had lots of helpful suggestions, some of which even worked with my fussy eater! I would certainly recommend her to anyone with similar issues.

Client, Condition - Fussy Eating

Thank you so much for the time that you gave us, for all of the information in your email, and for your words of encouragement.

It came as a great relief to us that you’re supportive of the approach that we’re taking. We’re ever so grateful for the advice that you’ve given us on how to responsibly raise [our child] as a vegan. We couldn’t have arrived at this without your clear and wise counsel.

We have already put several things you suggested into practice!

FAQ

Do I need a medical referral to come and see you?2019-01-24T11:47:38+00:00

No, you don’t.  However if you are able to provide any recent test results or consultant letters in advance of our appointment, it will help us make the best use of our time together.

Does my child need to attend the consultations?2018-12-18T13:17:25+00:00

I will need to meet your child at the initial appointment. I do know though that many children aren’t going to want to sit through the whole session! Plus sometimes parents need to discuss sensitive topics out of earshot. So you may wish to bring a second adult to the appointment who can then take your child back home or off for a play after the first 20 minutes. Your child doesn’t necessarily need to attend follow ups, although ideally they would join us periodically if long term support is needed.

What if my child is very anxious about attending?2018-12-18T13:16:54+00:00

My clinic is in a peaceful garden with little external stimulation apart from the occasional cat or squirrel. There is a cosy chair and blanket for your child to set up camp in for the duration, and you are welcome to bring an iPad or other distraction that helps your child. However, please do let me know if there is any preparation we can do to make attending easier.

Do you have a cancellation policy?2018-11-17T17:09:04+00:00

Yes.  Payment for cancellations and packages is required on booking – this is fully refundable with 24hrs notice of cancellation.  Partial refunds of packages are not available.

Can the packages be tailored to my specific needs?2018-11-17T17:07:16+00:00

Absolutely. Pleae do get in touch and we can create the package that will work best for you.

I’d like to buy a package as a gift. Is this possible?2018-11-17T17:06:02+00:00

This is possible, but please check first that the recipient is on board with the commitment they would have to make to changing their health for the better!

I’m in good health but want to check my diet is as healthy as possible. Do you offer single consultations?2018-11-17T08:40:35+00:00

Yes – these are charged at £125 and you can book yours here

What payment methods do you accept?2018-11-17T08:38:57+00:00

You can pay by credit card or bank transfer (BACS details on request). Payment is due before your visit.
