Alison Tehan Nutrition / Private Consultations

1:1 Nutrition Consultation

Feeling energised, restored and radiant starts with nourishing your body.

To me, the food we choose to eat each day is the most basic act of self-care. The nutrients we absorb from real food affects every aspect of our health – having flow-on effects for our energy, mood, health, family, work and interests.

So whether you’re looking to increase energy, improve your gut health, manage hormonal issues or simply make better choices, welcome. My nutrition consultations are here to give you clarity in a world of too much information.

In a completely tailored approach, I’ll learn about your unique situation, then give you simple, holistic and evidence-based actions to reach your goals. No fad diets. No guilt. No shame. Just sustainable, long-lasting habits to live your healthiest, most fulfilling life.

I can help you with…

  • Digestive health, including IBS, SIBO and food sensitivities
  • Hormonal health, including PCOS, insulin resistance, endometriosis and menstrual problems
  • Increasing energy
  • Reducing anxiety
  • Weight management
  • Childhood and adolescent nutrition

Your body is unique. Your nutrition should be, too.

The problem with diets (besides being a totally unsustainable, idealistic and risky approach to health) is that they take a one-size-fits-all approach. And just like a pair of jeans, one size doesn’t fit all.

 In my nutrition consultation, I’ll meet you where you’re at in your health journey. I take a holistic approach, considering your family, work, exercise, diet and medical history. Then, I’ll create a tailored treatment plan for you – and only you.

How does it work?

01 Book a discovery call

This is a chance to introduce ourselves and discuss your health concerns and goals. From here, we can determine whether we’re a good fit.

 02 Complete the questionnaire

Before we meet, I’ll ask you to complete a short questionnaire to uncover where you’re at on your health and wellness journey.

 03 Start your journey

It’s time to meet for your consultation – either virtually or in person – where we’ll take a deep dive into your situation and come up with a tailored, simple and sustainable treatment plan

“Her approach was thorough, and she has provided us with a tailored dietary framework and also meal plans which have been really useful (and we continue to use). Highly recommended Alison if you are looking for personalised & pragmatic advice tied back to solid nutrition theory.”–       Nick P

What’s the difference between a nutritionist, dietitian and naturopath?

Many people use the words nutritionist, dietitian and naturopath interchangeably – but it’s important to understand the difference before you seek treatment. The term nutritionist is not protected by legislation, so knowledge and qualifications can vary. As for me? I’m a postgraduate qualified nutritionist with over 7 years’ experience, specialising in women’s gut and hormonal health. I’m qualified to provide nutrition support to individuals and groups, as well as introduce dietary prescriptions for a range of conditions and concerns, such as diabetes, allergies, hormonal issues, gastrointestinal diseases, weight management and obesity.On the other hand, a dietitian usually has a bachelor’s degree with supervised placement in a hospital. In Australia, dietitians are registered on the Register of Accredited Practising Dietitians (APDs), often working in hospitals as they have an additional focus on medical nutrition therapy.Finally, naturopathy is a form of alternative medicine. Rather than focussing solely on food, naturopaths incorporate nutritional supplements and herbal medicine

Are your nutrition appointments face-to-face or virtual?

Both, it comes down to personal preference. I have a clinic in Mt Eliza on the Mornington Peninsula. Alternatively, I can facilitate an online nutrition consultation upon request.

What study have you done have?

I’m a postgraduate qualified nutritionist, studying Human Nutrition at Deakin University. I’ve completed further study in gastrointestinal health, women’s health and hormonal conditions. As part of my membership with Complementary Medicine Association, I’m required to complete further study and professional development each year. Nutrition is a science that’s constantly evolving, so I’m dedicated to continuous learning. This allows me to provide the most up-to-date and beneficial information to support my client’s health.

Do I need to get a blood test before I visit you?

In most cases I’ll request a blood test before we meet, that way I’ll be able to give you the best treatment possible for your individual needs. In saying that, this depends on where you’re at in your health journey.

How much is a nutrition consultation?

My initial nutrition consultation starts at $150 for 60 minutes, which involves comprehensive insight into your health history and a tailored plan to reach your goals. My follow-up nutrition consultation starts at $80 for 45 minutes, where we review and monitor your progress.

 Can I claim my appointment on Medicare?

Unfortunately, no. Only accredited dietitians are covered by Medicare

Do you offer private health rebates?

Yes. I offer private health rebates (but this also depends on your health provider). Please check with your health provider to see if nutrition consultations are included in your extras cover.

 Do you offer appointments for those on NDIS?

Yes I also provide services for those with self managed NDIS plans
