Supporting people to grow in confidence

MoreLife provide weight management programmes for adults, designed to create long-lasting shifts in behaviour and give clients the tools and support they need to achieve their health goals.

OUR 12 WEEK PROGRAMME

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.

Here’s a few examples of sessions included on the Adult Weight Management 12 week programme

“Just a quick message to say thank you once again.  I no longer count the calories, but do maintain my weight with portion control, healthy food options and exercise.  I am often asked about my weight loss and recommend your programme to people that ask.  I feel so much happier and my wife also reached her weight goals alongside me, two for one!”

This relationship gives us the ability to take feedback from our clients and staff, and use this to drive the research topics creating relevant and reliable research conclusions which we use to continually improve our programmes.
