Tier 2 Adult Weight Management

The Morelife 12-week, group programme offers a psychologically-informed model. Each session lasts for one and a half hours with a 30-minute drop-in before or after.

Each week you’ll focus on a different topic. These range from learning about nutrition and portion sizes to understanding the importance of sleep.

Our practitioners don’t tell people what to do, instead, you will be guided and supported to understand how thoughts, emotions and feelings influence decisions. We’ll help you to develop strategies to make healthier choices, cope with setbacks and manage specific triggers like stress.
