Terms and Conditions
The information on this website is not intended to replace the advice of your GP, a one on one relationship with a qualified health care professional and is not intended as medical advice. It is not intended for self-diagnosis, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. I encourage you to make your own health care decisions based upon research and in partnership with a qualified health care professional. The entire content of this website is based upon the opinions of Kelly McKenzie, a qualified Clinical Holistic Nutritionist, unless otherwise noted.
Nutrition Consultation Agreement Contract
By accepting and paying for your initial consultation the client agrees to the following with all about Nutrition (AAN).
You will discuss and agree the support you require from AAN in your first session, and review the progress and focus of your work together as you go along. You may decide to end your work together at this point or continue working together on a more ad-hoc basis.
The initial session is 90 minutes in length, and follow-up sessions last 30-60 minutes. Longer sessions, and more frequent sessions, can be negotiated if you require more intensive support. If you are late for an appointment the session will still end at the arranged time.
You are required to pay for sessions, which are missed or cancelled, with less than 24 hours notice. Please note we require payment before your scheduled session/s start. You will receive an invoice at the time of booking the initial consultation.
It is important that you attend sessions regularly. However, if you do need to cancel an appointment please let AAN know with at least 24 hours notice. You can do this in advance in a session.
If you miss a session without prior discussion it will be assumed you no longer require the sessions and your contract will be terminated.
If you pay for a program or package deal and wish to cancel your follow up appointments after the first session, a 50% refund will be issued. If follow up appointments for a program or package deal are not used within 6 months from your initial appointment date no refunds will be given as it will be assumed you no longer require the sessions and your contract will be terminated. If you pay for an initial nutrition consultation prior to your appointment date and decide to cancel your appointment with less than 24 hours notice no refund will be given as a time in our calendar has been reserved for you making it unavailable for others.
Clients of AAN are confidential plus all discussions within clinic sessions. There are however, some limits and exceptions to confidentiality. If AAN has serious concerns about your safety or the safety of another person normal confidentiality may be lifted.
Problems & Complaints
If you are having a problem with AAN, or the service, which you have not been able to resolve please provide written details of the concern.
Working on Skype & Zoom
It is your responsibility to have a working internet connection for all Skype and Zoom sessions. You will be charged for scheduled sessions if Kelly McKenzie is waiting for your call, but you are unable to connect online. We will call you for any phone sessions to a New Zealand landline or mobile number if you are in New Zealand.
The Nutritional Therapy Descriptor
Nutritional therapy practitioners use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual's symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health. Nutritional therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.
Nutritional therapists are not permitted to diagnose or claim to treat medical conditions. Nutritional advice is not a substitute for professional medical advice and/or treatment. Practitioners never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with 'red flag' signs or symptoms to their medical professional. They will also frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client's care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.
The Client understands and agrees to the following:
I am responsible for contacting my general practitioner (GP) about any health concerns.
I give permission for you to contact my GP regarding any agreed aspects of my case: YES
If I am receiving treatment from my GP, or any other medical provider, I should tell him/her about any nutritional strategy provided by my nutritional therapist (Kelly McKenzie). This is necessary because of any possible reaction between medication and the nutritional program
It is important that I tell my nutritional therapist (Kelly McKenzie) about any medical diagnosis, medication, herbal medicine, or food supplements, I am taking as this may affect the nutritional program.
If I am unclear about the agreed nutritional therapy (Kelly McKenzie) program/food supplement doses/time period, I should contact my nutritional therapist (Kelly McKenzie) promptly for clarification.
I must contact my nutritional therapist (Kelly McKenzie) should I wish to continue any specified supplement program for longer than the original agreed period, to avoid any potential adverse reactions.
Recording consultations using any form of electronic media is not allowed without the written permission by both AAN and you the client.
