In-home Consultations (Melbourne)

In-home consultations are great for families who are experiencing stressful mealtimes, fussy/selective eating or have concerns about their child's growth/weight.

Kathleen will come to your house to meet you and your child. Being at home - your child will feel comfortable in their normal environment. It also means that you don't have to get the kids in the car, entertain them in a waiting room and distract them during a clinic consultation.

In-home consultations usually take around one hour. It can be useful to see your child eating during the consultation, but this isn't always necessary.

The number of in-home consultations needed varies between families and depends on the degree of complexity of the mealtime issues.

 Please contact Kathleen for more information.
