Empowering clients to acheive their health goals

The link below is to an article with an extremely interesting point of view by a doctor on the US healthcare system. As a nutritional therapist my main aims are to ensure my clients not only have a clear view of what I am recommending for them, but that they also understand the reasons for proposing the changes, and feel they have the support and necessary tools to make those changes easy to build into their lifestyles. An important, and all too easily undervalued, part of this is listening. By taking time to understand clients personal goals, and their motivation for them, I hope to empower them to embrace the changes and move forward. That's why my appointments are longer than average. And I hope why my clients recommend me!
