Not medical, mental health or personal nutrition advice
Although I (Emma Townsin, founder FoodLife Freedom) am a registered dietitian and certified intuitive eating counsellor, on this website, my social media networks, webinars and online courses I am acting in the role of wellness coach and writer, and as such I am not, nor am I holding myself out to be a doctor/physician, nurse, physician’s assistant, advance practice nurse, or any other medical professional (“Medical Provider”), psychiatrist, psychologist, therapist, counselor, or social worker (“Mental Health Provider”), registered dietitian or licensed nutritionist, or member of the clergy. As a wellness coach and writer, I am not providing personalised health care, medical or nutritional therapy services, or attempting to diagnose, treat, prevent or cure any physical, mental or emotional issue, disease or condition. The information provided in or through my website, social media platforms, webinars and online courses pertaining to your health or wellness, exercise, relationships, finances, or any other aspect of your life does not create a dietitian/ counselor-patient relationship and is not intended to be a substitute for the professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment provided by your own Medical Provider or Mental Health Provider. By using my website, social media platforms, webinars and online courses you agree and acknowledge that I am not providing medical advice or mental health advice in any way. Always seek the advice of your own Medical Provider and/or Mental Health Provider regarding any questions or concerns you have about your specific health or any medications, herbs or supplements you are currently taking and before implementing any recommendations or suggestions from my website or social media platforms. Do not disregard medical advice or delay seeking medical advice because of information you have read on this website, social media platforms, webinars or online courses. Do not start or stop taking any medications without speaking to your own Medical Provider or Mental Health Provider. If you have or suspect that you have a medical or mental health problem, contact your own Medical Provider or Mental Health Provider promptly.
Assessment calls, nutrition consultations and online courses
Food Life Freedom complies to strict data protection standards for all clients who take part in Food Life Freedom's services or free assessments.
Food Life Freedom uses GDPR compliant platforms to deliver services to ensure your information is secure. Written information is stored online via Google Workspace (formally GSuite), a secure GDPR compliant platform and will never be stored on my personal computer. Communication is via my email provider Google Workspace. Appointments are conducted over a private link on Google Meet, provided through Google Workspace. Your appointment details will not be shared with anyone outside of the appointment. Please see workspace.google.com for Google Workspace's privacy information. My online modules are delivered via Kajabi, a GDPR compliant platform. Your personal information will never be shared outside the coaching programme.
If you participate in any group coaching or community discussion, your name will be shared with the group. The information you share is at your own discretion. All community members are bound by a strict code of ethics to keep all personal information private. You participate in the coaching at your own risk.
As a UK registered dietitian, Emma Townsin (HCPC: DT28209) is bound by legal and professional responsibilities of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) to protect your privacy at all times. Your private information will be accessed only by registered healthcare providers at Food Life Freedom who are providing you care, with the exception of your name which may be accessible to non-healthcare providing staff. Personal information will not be shared with third party health professionals without your prior consent, unless required by law.
At times, it may be helpful to collect or share information with your GP or other healthcare provider. If this is advised, it will only be undertaken with your prior consent using a GDPR-compliant, encrypted email service (GSuite). On booking nutrition consultations or the Empowered Women Academy with Food Life Freedom, you will be asked to read and sign a detailed document outlining how and why we may use client’s personal information.
Information collected from private clients
If you sign up to Food Life Freedom's services, we will require certain private and confidential information in order to offer a safe and effective healthcare service. This includes collecting medical history such as diagnoses, symptoms and any medications you are taking, and lifestyle information such as your work, travel, sleeping and eating habits.
After signing up to a service you will be required to sign an online form requesting your permission to collect and use personal information before any consultation or coaching can take place. If you sign up but do not agree to the use of this information, you can be given a full refund. Your personal information will be retained in privacy after you have completed the service or opted out for as long as legally required.
How is your information kept private?
Information stored within Google Workspace, Calendly or Kajabi will never be stored to any personal or business computer or any other device without your permission.
How is your payment information kept secure?
Emma Townsin operates as a UK registered dietitian and an intuitive eating counsellor providing personalised advice within her scope of knowledge. As she is bound by nation specific laws, Emma cannot practice as a dietitian across all countries. Please get in touch to find out if you are eligible for personalised programmes.
Free assessment calls are strictly not a dietitian/ counselor- patient relationship. In these calls, Emma Townsin is acting as a health coach and does not have sufficient information to diagnose, treat or advice a health condition or treatment. You acknowledge that the decision to work with Food Life Freedom based on these calls is based on your own best assessment of your needs. Please discuss with your registered health professional if you have health concerns.
This policy will be reviewed and updated as required if new services are added. It was last updated July 2022.
