Frequently Asked Questions
Who is the coaching geared towards?
Daniel offers his expertise to all people regardless of their current state of health. Clients range from those with specific conditions that they would like to work through, to those that already feel like they are on the right track with their health, but would like some clear insight into whether they are doing the right thing.
What conditions is Daniel able to help with?
Coaching can be extremely beneficial for a wide variety of complaints. Daniel specialises in the areas of digestive health, joint health, hormonal balance, immunity, and reproductive health, but the scope of nutritional coaching embraces far more than just dealing with symptoms and instead offers individuals a route back to overall well-being. Because of this, virtually any condition can be improved through coaching.
What do you mean by a ‘tailor-made’ diet?
Your body is unique, so your needs will be, too. Daniel meets each person with an understanding that any nutritional programme needs to harmonise deeply with you as an individual. There is no prescriptive agenda or formulaic approach, just good common sense geared towards the wellness within you.
What do you mean by ‘wellness?’
While good eating habits are the cornerstone of a healthy body, your overall wellness covers a much broader sense of how you are living and experiencing each day. Daniel is able to draw on a wide variety of disciplines which can steer you to better health long-term. Changes that you make need to be sustainable and realistic, and in many ways Daniel’s approach bridges the gap between counseling and nutrition. Each client is invited to take the best steps towards having a better relationship with their bodies and the food that they eat.
How many sessions will I need?
Each person is different. The minimum commitment is to three sessions, and in many cases this may all that is needed with occasional follow-up sessions. It depends entirely on the needs of each individual, and Daniel is available for ongoing support as required.
Do sessions need to be in person?
No. In fact most of Daniel’s clients have their sessions via Skype. This is a wonderful way of ‘meeting’ for sessions regardless of where you live. It also allows for greatly flexibility in booking sessions at a time most convenient for you.
How much does it cost?
The initial consultation is R650 and is usually one and a half hours. Subsequent sessions are R450 for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Will I have to spend a lot on supplements?
Daniel is interested in targeted nutrition and spends a lot of time researching and writing about various fads in nutrition. His approach is never ‘one-size-fits-all’ so supplementation is only suggested as it is needed. Ideally individuals are encouraged to make positive changes to the way they eat so that supplementation can be kept to a minimum.
How long will I have to wait for an appointment?
Each new client is asked to fill in a questionnaire before their first appointment. This is extremely useful to get a clear idea of where to begin in the first session. Depending on how much time the client needs to fill the information in, it would be safe to say that a first appointment can be made within 1-2 weeks depending on availability.
