Nutrition Consultation Training

Often applying our nutrition knowledge can seem a bit daunting if we haven't had an opportunity to shadow a nutritionist or gain experience within our nutrition careers. In this online training talk, we will run through the basics of how to conduct a nutrition consultation and give you the opportunity to practice with a fellow nutritionist, whereby you take it in turns to be the client or nutritionist conducting a nutrition consultation.

This training is run in small groups by Charlotte Turner RNutr a highly experienced CPD educator with 10 years of nutrition experience.

Duration: 1.5 hours - Online

Training topics:

  • Setting the scene during your consultation

  • Building a client relationship and putting the client at ease

  • Maintaining AFN professional standards and confidentiality at all times. 

  • How to structure the consultation

  • How to facilitate the consultation through appropriate questions and body language

  • Working with the client and setting client goals

  • Ending your consultation and next steps.

  • 20-30 minute role-play to practice a consultation using break out rooms

  • Q+A

This training series is designed for recent nutrition graduates, associate nutritionists, or registered nutritionists wishing to start seeing freelance clients. This is an online session delivered in small groups with time for a Q+A at the end.

Charlotte was lovely, really down to earth and information. Lots of good information to take on board and implement in your practise. The small size of the group was nice too as meant it was very personal.

Very happy for attending this and I will be glad to attend any future sessions run by charlotte.

Very happy with the session with charlotte. She was very good at explaining the basics and she made me feel like very capable of doing it. I really liked the role play at the end although I was “scared” at the beginning.
