Giving you one to one support to make realistic, positive lifestyle changes.  

You will have a 1 hour health check, which will include a discussion of your eating patterns, exercise levels, stress levels & alcohol intake.  Also checking your blood pressure, weight, height, body mass index (BMI) and cholesterol measured to give you a starting point.

Testimonials

Very supportive, listened to me at every session and have given me gentle support to help me focus on my health goals and take control of my health. Have felt listened to, everybody in the team has been so compassionate.

"I’ve lost even more weight. I’ve now gone down two clothes sizes and I feel so much better in myself. I find I’ve also got a lot more energy. I’ve even had a conversation with my GP about coming off my blood pressure medication soon".

"Many thanks for your efficient email. I would like to thank you for your support today. I will look forward to doing some research for recipes to help me along the way to increase my meals, as I do enjoy cooking as long as the ingredients are basic. I have educated my mind after having a hearty chat with you to make the necessary changes as of Monday (1st June). Maybe a family member can sit with Mum to give me an hour to walk but, thanks for your recommendation with stroke association, they do keep in touch with us and helped Mum with funding. I have thought of also putting my money that I use on treats to some weighing scales so I can see the weight coming off, another positive note. I will need to keep a record. Thanks again, it was nice to speak to you & share ideas. Will look forward to our follow up call in the next couple of weeks".

"The telephone conversation was just what I needed to get motivated. I was given lots of information and was sent some more via email. We chatted for a while and it wasn't rushed in the slightest. She listened to everything I had to say and made me feel comfortable and at ease. There is nothing I can suggest to improve the service I think it's perfect as it is".

"I have completed 12 months and lost a lot of weight, feel better in myself, have more confidence, have more knowledge and understanding around my lifestyle and am much more accountable for my own health. I'm more mindful about what I eat and the support has helped me to achieve my goals of losing weight and becoming healthier".

"If anybody is feeling down or wants to improve their health I would recommend the St Helens Wellbeing service. My mental health has improved, I feel better in myself and I’ve lost a lot of weight meaning my clothes sizes have come down".

"The support I have received over the last 12 months has been brilliant. I have made positive changes to my lifestyle and I feel much better in myself, I’m more physically active, lost weight, better all-around health and my social interaction has improved".

Health checks

“I have lost 8 pounds in 4 weeks from the goals we set around nutrition and exercise. I already feel much better and didn’t realise how much of a difference some small changes would make. I prefer the lifestyle change aspect and don’t feel like I’m on a ‘diet’. I have tried ‘diets’ previously and they haven’t worked. I am really motivated to keep losing weight”.

Health checks

“I’m currently my lightest weight I have ever been for a long time. Since I saw you for my 12 month appointment, I’ve been able to continue the positive changes I made and I am feeling really positive in myself, and my heart also feels much better now”.
