One to One Consultations
What happens in consultations?
In the first consultation, I go through your full case history in detail. This is so that I can analyse patterns and connections and help you understand what’s happening for you right now and how it may have developed.
I then give you a personalised programme of recommendations that may include diet, supplements, lifestyle advice and/or naturopathic techniques (such as dry skin brushing, Epsom salt baths, enemas etc.), depending on what’s appropriate for you.
Over the next few consultations, I’ll monitor how you respond to the changes being made, and adapt your recommendations accordingly.
Some people find 2-3 consultations over 2-6 months helpful, while others benefit from more frequent or ongoing sessions.
Where are consultations held?
You can see me in person, or have a consultation via Skype or over the telephone, which means you can have one to one nutrition consultations almost anywhere in the world.
I share a treatment room with my husband at our home in Portslade, near Brighton. I also work at the Vision of Hope Clinic in Brighton (www.visionofhopeclinic.com) with people who also want to see Dr. Andre Young-Snell.

If you are seeing me in person, then I will send you the address for your consultation.
If you are seeing me at the Vision of Hope Clinic, then the clinic will send you all the information you need.
What do you need to bring/have to hand?
- Any supplements or medication you are taking
- Pen and paper for making notes*
- Cash or cheque made payable to A & K Chick Ltd – or ask for my bank details if we are having a phone or Skype consultation
* I can write down or e-mail you bullet point recommendations plus any supplements I recommend, but you may prefer to make your own notes during the consultation.
If you see me at the Vision of Hope Clinic, I’ll e-mail you detailed recommendations usually within a week of the initial consultation with links to the supplements, recipes and more. If anyone else would like this service, the initial consultation will be £15 extra.

“I cannot thank you enough for your advice and knowledge and the difference it has made to how I feel – physically & mentally.”
“Thank you for all the amazing bits of information you have shared with us all, and all the insights and wisdom that I have received from you over the years. You are one of a few people that I credit with helping me to transform my life, and I am deeply grateful to you for that.”
“Kirsten helped me turn my health and well being around so much so, that nearly every member of my family has since been to see her. She is very easy to talk to and very knowledgable, I would recommend her to anyone.”
“Once again thank you so much for all your help this year, my healthy pregnancy and blood results are all down to you teaching me how to look after myself! I am so grateful for all the support you have given me.”
“Thank you for your advice and grounding words surrounding Natural Nutrition Kirsten, you were a part of the picture that has given us our healthy children.”
Through any battle with illness we are faced with so much information and opinions. The nutrition part of my journey was the fundamental underpinning of my regime which reduced inflammation and pain ten fold. Kirsten guided me through my options explaining the why and wherefores and gave me recipes and endless advice. I cannot thank her enough for giving me the tools to take back some control in my life.
“I saw Kirsten for my initial consultation a few years ago and I have not looked back since. My health has improved dramatically and I only wish I had discovered natural nutrition earlier on. Kirsten has helped me improve all areas of my life; from suffering from migraines to now having none, energy and concentration levels, skin complaints, and generally an overall sense of well-being and feeling healthy for the first time in my life. I have continued to return to Kirsten regularly for support and advice as I’ve reach different points in my life i.e. fertility, pregnancy, breastfeeding and she has never failed to give me great advice with amazing results. Now my 2 year old daughter benefits from Kirsten’s wealth of knowledge and wisdom! I would highly recommend her.”

“I first met Kirsten in March 2009, and since then, the advice and support she has provided has enabled me to look at life in a completely different way. Everything from nutrition to self belief, to having complete faith in nature and my body’s ability to heal itself. I would never have found this understanding without her help, and would recommend her services to anyone who has reached a crossroads in their life.”
