How we can help 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 either a personal health coach or a community group made up of people also on the programme 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.
