Are carers and family members able to join the coaching sessions
Yes, you can include a carer or family member in your coaching sessions. However, we encourage you to attend the Psychology sessions without carers, friends or family members as often personal issues can be discussed.
Why do I need to provide weight measurements?
As we are a remote weight management programme we are unable to do a traditional weigh-in, which is what would happen if you took part in a face-to-face or group programme.
For this reason, we ask everyone who takes part to provide regular weight updates so that we can review your progress throughout the programme. This will also allow your healthare team to monitor your progress and tailor the advice and recommendations they give to support you to achieve your weight loss goals.
Do I need a smartphone to join?
You can choose to take part in the programme digitally using our online resources and app, or you can access an offline programme if you don’t have a smartphone or would prefer phone calls. You are in control and can interact with your personal dietitian in the best way for you.

“I feel more energised. I always had a lot of will power but it does get easier when you do something everyday so it becomes routine. It becomes a powerful motivator for yourself, you start feeling better and aiming for feeling better.”
