ONLINE CONSULTATION 

(for dietitian and diabetes education only)

Don't have a Dietitian or Diabetes Educator close by?

Want to reduce travel time?

Too busy to leave your home/office?

Difficulty with transport?

See a Dietitian in the comfort of your own space.

 

 

We are reaching out to help make sessions easier and more accessible by providing sessions through Skype. Using Skype with a webcam allows you to see your dietitian through the consult, just like if you were sitting in her office. 

WHAT IS SKYPE?

Skype is a software application that allows users to chat over the internet for free. If you have a webcam you can share a video conversation with another user. If required, your dietitian will email any handouts to you. These will be in pdf format so can be read on any computer. If you don't already have software to read this type of file you can download Adobe Reader (free).

ON THE DAY OF APPOINTMENT
TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR SKYPE SESSION 
  1. Create a consultation space.

  2. The consultation will be the same as if you were sitting in our office. You will be asked questions about your eating habits and food intake and any symptoms you may be experiencing that may be related to food. You will need to be in a quiet space, away from distractions; you will need a place that you feel comfortable talking about personal issues about your food and eating habits. Some tips that might help you include:

    • If you have a laptop take it to your bedroom or office, or somewhere else that you can close the door.

    • Make sure the kids (and pets!) have distractions or are looked after by someone else.

    • Find a comfortable seat where you can see the webcam and screen easily as you will be  sitting for an hour during your first consultation.

    • Have a pen and paper ready to write notes down during the session.

  3. If you have any things (product samples, food diary, medications etc) that you want to share  with your dietitian, make sure you organise these ahead of time so they are within easy  reach.

  4. If you have any particular questions that you would like to ask your dietitian write them  down so you have them ready to go.

PAYMENT

We would appreciate if payment was made prior to your session as this will give you more time to spend with your Dietitian. Payment can be made via direct deposit or PayPal. You will receive an email with the payment options.

If any problems, please contact us.
