Empowering you to make changes that can last

WHAT TO EXPECT?

Your Initial Consultation is to help us understand you and your goals. To start with we’ll complete a full lifestyle, health, and diet assessment.

Together, we then start to develop a personalised action plan to get you started on your path to health. This will give you the confidence to know what you need to focus on to get the results you are looking for.

We will answer as many of your questions as possible at this time, however, sometimes there is a lot to cover so follow up sessions may be necessary. You can arrange these directly with the nutritionist or dietitian you are working with.

DO I NEED FOLLOW UPS?

A Follow Up will help to keep you motivated and on track with what you are wanting to achieve. Much like a follow up appointment with a GP, physiotherapist, dentist or other healthcare provider - the number and frequency of these sessions will be based on your needs.

Your follow up meetings are completely tailored to you. We'll review your progress, discuss tools and strategies to help you reach your goals, and work through any challenges you're facing along the way.

The Dietitian or Nutritionist you work with will help you work out what is right for you!

WILL I GET A MEAL PLAN?

At Mission Nutrition, our focus is to empower you with the knowledge you need to make the right choices for you - this is how you create long-term change and healthy habits that stick. You'll learn how to eat to your appetite and create a healthier relationship with food, without weighing your food or restrictive diets! After your session, you will receive an action plan that outlines the steps to take to reach your goals and get the results you are looking for!

While a very prescriptive meal plan with can sound like a good idea, research shows that it's not the best way to change the way you eat so this is not something we offer.

We work alongside www.healthyfood.com who have an amazing array of healthy recipes and meal plans which we can build into our customised advice to support you to get the results you are looking for.

WHAT IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE?

We are more than happy to reschedule appointments, as we know that things come up, but we ask that you give us as much notice as possible.

We require 48 hour’s notice for any cancellations or changes to your appointment. Clients who provide less than 48 hour’s notice, or miss their appointment, may be charged a cancellation fee.

 

CAN I BRING A SUPPORT PERSON?

Yes, absolutely. It’s important to note that the focus of the consult will be on you, rather than the support person. We also offer couples consults if both of you would like to be included in the consult.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A NUTRITIONIST AND A DIETITIAN?

A Registered Dietitian is also a Nutritionist. In order to have the title of Registered Dietitian, you must have an undergraduate degree in the field of nutrition or dietetics and have either completed postgraduate study or master’s degree with additional training. In addition, a Dietitian has an annual practising certificate where they must prove their competence annually by participating in professional development.

The title of Registered Nutritionist can only be used by those who meet the standards determined by The Nutrition Society of New Zealand. Registered Nutritionists must hold a degree or academic qualification from a university or other recognised national institutions of education.
