Services

Etico Nutrition is a fully-mobile nutrition and dietetic private practice operating within the Perth metropolitan area. We specialise in vegan, vegetarian and whole food plant-based nutrition.

Consultations are carried out in the privacy and comfort of your own home (or other preferred location) to enable a more holistic approach to nutrition counselling, and allow for your unique health profile, personal food preferences, and lifestyle to be considered.

Consultations are also available online (via Zoom) Australia-wide. For more information on online consultations and how to use Zoom, please see: Online consultations

Individual Nutrition Consultations

Initial Consultation (60 minutes) | $120

The aim of the initial consultation is to conduct a thorough assessment of you as an individual, so that all advice and action plans can be personalised to your unique needs.

An initial consultation includes a detailed health assessment, diet and lifestyle assessment, and personalised nutrition recommendations.

Health Assessment

Thorough review of your medical and social history, current health status, relevant biochemistry (blood tests) and medications or supplements.

Baseline anthropometric measurements (e.g. weight, waist and hip circumference), where relevant.

Discussion of your individual health and nutrition goals.

Diet and Lifestyle Assessment

Analysis of your current dietary intake, eating habits, food intolerances and preferences.

Review of your lifestyle - including exercise, nature of your work, daily routine, family commitments, and sleeping habits.

Personalised Nutrition Recommendations

Nutrition education and counselling focused on your specific health needs and/or concerns.

Individualised dietary and lifestyle recommendations tailored to your personal needs and preferences.

Collaborative goal setting and strategy formulation for appropriate and realistic nutrition-related monitoring and evaluation.

Review Consultation (40 minutes) | $80

Making changes to the way you eat can be overwhelming. Review sessions provide you with the ongoing support, monitoring, and accountability to help you achieve your personal health goals.

A review session typically focuses on:

  • Monitoring of your progress toward and/or re-evaluation of the appropriateness of the health goals and strategies developed during the initial consultation;

  • Celebrating your achievements and reviewing any barriers that you identified when trying to make changes;

  • Evaluating any new health and nutrition-related issues, concerns or questions; and

  • Providing additional education, motivation, counselling and/or resources to promote healthy behaviour change and assist you to become an expert in your own nutritional health and wellbeing.

Cancellation Policy

Your appointment time is set aside for your exclusive use. Last minute cancellation of an arranged appointment is unfair on my time and limits my ability to work with other clients. I ask that you provide at least 24 hours notice of a cancellation or 50% of the full fee is payable for the missed session. This cancellation fee will only be waived in exceptional circumstances.

Please note that the cancellation fee is not claimable through your private health insurance or Medicare.

Rebates

Private Health Insurance

Most private health funds provide rebates for consultations with a Dietitian. The rebate amount depends on your level of cover. Please contact your health insurance provider to confirm your personal entitlements.


Medicare

You may be eligible to claim a rebate from Medicare if you have been referred to a Dietitian by your GP on a Chronic Disease Management (CDM) or Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) plan.

CDM / EPC plans are designed to help patients access a range of health services - including dietetics - to assist with the management of chronic (ongoing) health conditions.

Examples of chronic conditions eligible for a CDM plan include:

  • Diabetes

  • High blood pressure (hypertension)

  • High cholesterol

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

  • Arthritis

The Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) provides a rebate of $55.10 per consultation, for up to 5 sessions per calendar year. Your doctor must develop the plan prior to your appointment for you to be eligible for this rebate.

Please have a copy of your plan available during your appointment and note that you have been referred by your GP on a CDM / EPC plan when making a booking.
