Health Trainers can support people on a one 2 one basis around changing or leading a healthy lifestyle. We also support people with long term conditions, supporting patients to self-manage their condition(s). The service is free & confidential.
We support with the following
- Mental health (anxiety, low mood, depression).
- Weight management (weight loss)
- Stop smoking (referral to stop smoking service)
- Alcohol reduction (help reduce alcohol intake, we DO NOT support with alcohol dependency, this is more for the specialised service, which HT can refer into.
- Advice & information (around diet, increasing activity etc).
- Signposting/referring to other services (housing, debts, training, employment)
- Healthy eating
- Support people who are socially isolated or lonely.
- Support in confidence building and motivating clients.
We work with people for 6/7 weeks giving people up to 1 hour per appointment. We will also support with setting health goals with patients. After the 6/7 weeks, we will follow up with clients on a 1, 3, 6, 9 & 12 month period to see if the client has maintained their new behaviour change.
