Ways to work with Dr. Kirsty

One to One Package £300

A comprehensive one to one package for parents who want comprehensive support and guidance to transform mealtimes into positive and stress free experiences. Kirsty will work with you to address your child’s eating challenges.

While it is possible to book in for a ‘one off’ session, based on Kirsty’s extensive experience she finds that on average families need at least three 60 minute sessions to allow for ongoing support in order to begin to overcome food related challenges together. 

This package includes:

  • Three one hour consultation sessions (Session one: Current Situation at mealtimes, Session two: Food acceptance techniques and Session three: Eating assessment and optimisation of your child’s nutritional intake and portion sizes.
  • Dr. Kirsty’s time before and after the call to create a written ‘action plan’ for your next steps
  • The option to email Dr. Kirsty following on from your first two sessions with any questions you have in order to support your ‘next steps’

This tried and tested method has been successful in supporting numerous families across the UK that you can’t get elsewhere such as the NHS. Kirsty also has a network of connections to support any additional support needs including occupational therapists, speech and language therapists and psychologists to support your onwards journey if needed. 

By the end of this series, you’ll receive a strategic and personalised action plan to implement at home to help you reach your goals and overcome the current challenges you are experiencing. We will also address any questions or challenges that arise with each session and email support.
