    They will get to know you and your family. Together you will look at;

    • What small steps you can take to reach your goal and make a plan which fits your family.
    • Review the plan regularly  with you  to see if you are on the right track - or if we need to try something different.
    • Help you find ways to maintain your new healthy habits.

    • Support to plan and manage change as a family –skills you can use again whenever you need to.
    • Regular contact with a Healthy Lifestyles Coach – this helps develop and strengthen motivation to change.
    • Working together to identify areas for change- support tailored to your families needs.
    • Continued support until the new behaviours become a habit.
    • Coaches work with the whole family – it is helpful for everyone’s ideas and feelings to be heard.
