What is it?
Designed to run over 24 weeks, the Fresh Start initiative is a weight management has been specifically developed for people with higher Body Mass Indexes, or for those with more complex needs that make effective weight loss more difficult.
Initially, service users are invited to an information session, where they’ll meet some of the Fresh Start team and have a personal consultation with a Healthy Weight Practitioner. Here, the service user will discuss their own targets and how to best achieve them. The participant will then be able to choose the appropriate interactive group sessions in conjunction with advice from their Healthy Weight Practitioner.
These sessions are led by our team of highly-trained practitioners – all of whom are experienced in helping people lose weight effectively and permanently – and provide a supportive environment in which service users can feel comfortable.
It’s here that our practitioners will educate and inform these service users on how to make long-term behavioural changes to their lifestyle that will help them overcome any challenges they may face in reducing and maintaining their weight.
Each session will cover a different topic, which include energy balance, comfort eating, mindfulness and what physical activity options are open to the service users.
