This month, we interviewed our Health Coach Naomi. Find out what she had to say about her background and why she would recommend us.
What did you do before you became a Health Coach here?
My background has always been teaching/ coaching. I worked as a Health Trainer under Public Health for 3 years and a Further Education teacher for 5 years before becoming a Health & Wellbeing Coach, which I have been doing for over 4 years.
What programme do you work on?
I deliver Adult Weight Management sessions that run for 12 weeks and provide follow-up support at 3, 6 and 12 months post-completion. I also provide a 1-1 confidential advice on Alcohol Reduction.
Why should people join our programme – what benefits could they gain?
Our programme is very informative and interactive. It provides people with the skills to make healthier lifestyle changes through behavioural change techniques, which encourages people to realise and acknowledge the impact their lifestyle can have on their health.
Furthermore, our programme is not just a weight loss programme. It also promotes a sustainable healthy eating lifestyle that benefits general health.
Why would you recommend this service to others?
Our programme is free and delivered by qualified coaches/ advisers. The programme itself, was designed by nutritionists, psychologists and fitness experts. I can testify that it works based on real-life accounts from my participants. Personally, I would encourage people to give it a try as knowledge gained is never wasted, and therefore you have nothing to lose.
