How we can support you
At Oviva, we will work with you to develop a plan tailored to your needs. As part of your plan, you will be matched with an experienced dietitian to support you in making changes.
First, we will discuss your previous medical history. We’ll ask questions about your eating habits, your everyday life and your environment to understand more about who you are. Together we’ll set realistic goals and a plan to achieve them over the course of the programme. Our mission is to support you to create new healthy habits for both your body and mind.

What happens on the service?
You will receive one-to-one support from your own personal dietitian who will guide you through the programme. You will have an initial consultation with your dietitian to explain what happens on the programme, decide what you would like to achieve during the following 12 weeks and create a personalised plan together to meet these goals.
You will then follow this plan over the following weeks to achieve meaningful and manageable changes to your diet and lifestyle. During this time you will have three follow up calls with your dietitian, who will ensure you are on track and making progress, and answer any questions you may have.
Do I need a smartphone to take part?
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 of how you’d like to take part and so you can interact with your personal dietitian in the best way for you.
