How We Work
We communicate initially via email or phone and then conduct face-to-face meetings online via SKYPE, FACETIME or we can use the phone. We use PayPal for payment and we charge in United States dollars.
Initial Consultation: In our first consultation we gather information and make some preliminary recommendations. This can also include handouts, hyperlinks, and/or other recommended reading or video materials. We include these in an email at the end of the consultation. This is usually a 90 minute consultation.
Blood Report: Our optimal interpretation of blood provides extraordinary detail about your current physical health. For this reason we may recommend that you get a blood test done locally, send us the results and from this we can write a comprehensive report that includes a summary of what we see, a detailed breakdown of your various blood tests and what they mean as well as a summary and recommendations for recovery.
Comprehensive Holistic Evaluation and Report: Another option is a report that includes blood analysis, as well as a review of previous health issues and medication use, and an examination of symptoms, lifestyle and diet. From this, we generate a detailed recovery plan that can optimize recovery and safety. This requires that we send you some intake forms for you to fill-in and return to us via email. We take longer than most practitioners and are very thorough during this intake because we are looking for ALL the contributing triggers and issues, many of which have thus far been missed or misunderstood. We look for connections between diverse issues that might not be obvious at first.
Education: Our consultations are designed to educate you so that you have the confidence and motivation to make the necessary changes and to take charge of your health and wellbeing. We provide you with detailed information about what is really happening in your body that is creating your imbalance/s and symptoms. We then map out the processes and changes that are required to regain balance, why they are necessary and how they work. We can also provide you with the latest science and research that supports our recommendations including testimonials.
Holistic Support: We call upon a wide range of training and experience in clinical counselling, energy psychology, vibrational medicine, naturopathy, nutrition, homeopathy, as well as the Chinese and Ayurvedic traditions and more. We also provide psycho-spiritual, relationship, lifestyle and environmental counselling.
An important part of what we do is educate you about beneficial dietary changes, appropriate de-stressing techniques and useful natural supplements, foods and homeopathic remedies. This includes counselling you on a large range of methods for detoxifying, de-congesting and optimizing the body. We also provide you with a list of appropriate products and inexpensive tools to support these interventions that you can source locally.
Ongoing Counselling and Coaching: After an initial consultation many of our clients opt for one of our counselling or coaching packages. Wellness coaching is designed to support you through the process of change. We monitor your progress, make recommendations on adapting processes, keep you on track and encourage you as you do what it takes to regain physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellness once again. Counselling and coaching needs to be consistent during your recovery. For this reason we recommend that a session every week or two initially is optimal. Then it can change to once a month. The objective is to quickly get you to a place where it may be once a month for a bit and then you no longer need our services.
Costs: Contact us for details on our fee structure. We chose our base of operations in Ecuador for many reasons. Chief amongst them was the capacity to work and live in an environment where we could provide our clients with a reasonable cost for our services. If you come from Western industrialised nations then our fees can amount to substantial savings. In many cases the comprehensive reporting that we do is not done in places like the United States, Australia, Canada and Europe because in these jurisdictions the costs would be prohibitive.
