I, the client, am employing the nutrition counselling services of Liam Howells (the “Company”), and any independent contractors employed by the Company (“Independent Contractors”) so that I can obtain information and guidance about health factors within my own control (diet, nutrition, and related behaviours) in order to nourish and support my health and wellness.

I understand that Liam Howells (Director of the Company) and all other independent contractors within the company are certified in their respective field -not medical physicians or psychologists- and do not dispense medical advice, nor will they diagnose or treat any medical condition. Rather, they will provide nutritional support and nutrition education to enhance my knowledge of health as it relates to foods, dietary supplements, and behaviours associated with eating. While nutritional and botanical support can be an important compliment to my medical care, I understand nutrition counselling is not a substitute for the diagnosis, treatment, or care of disease by a medical provider. If you, the client, suspect you may have an ailment or illness that may require medical attention, then you are encouraged to consult with a licensed physician without delay.

Methods of nutritional evaluation or testing made available to me are not intended to diagnose disease. Rather, these assessment tests are intended as a guide to developing an appropriate health-supportive program for me, and to monitor my progress in achieving my goals. While people generally experience greater health and wellness as a result of embracing a healthier attitude, lifestyle, and diet, the Company and Independent Contractors do not promise or guarantee protection from future illness.

I understand that the Company and Independent Contractors will keep therapy notes as a record of our work together. These notes document the topics that we talk about, interventions used, and treatment plan or any other considerations that may be helpful to your work with me. Medical records, personal information, and history divulged in session to the Company and Independent Contractors will be kept confidential, unless I consent to sharing my medical and nutritional information.

I acknowledge that I take full responsibility for my own life and well-being as well as the lives and well-being of my family and children (where applicable), and all decisions made during and after this engagement. I assume the risks of nutrition counselling services, including the risks of trying new foods, and the risks inherent in making lifestyle changes. I agree to hold the Company and Independent Contractors, including Liam Howells, harmless for claims or damages in connection with our work together.

By using this service, I acknowledge payment for nutrition counselling services to the Company at the agreed price and understand that I cannot cancel employment of said services and cease payment until after the minimum term of the contract is fulfilled (three months and initial making of all packs), is made to the Company. This is a contract between myself and the Company, and I understand that it is also a release of potential liability.
