Health improvement coaches
A dedicated Health Improvement Coach can assist you every step of the way to achieving and maintaining your goals to improve your health and mental wellbeing. They can also help you find other services and activities. This service is for people aged 18 + and is free.
If you work with people in Wiltshire and would like to know more about the service and how we can work together, you can email or phone us.
Health Improvement Coaches work on a one-to-one basis providing support for six one-hour sessions.
If you would like to improve your mental wellbeing, stop smoking or lose weight, but don't know where to start, a Health Improvement Coach may be able to help. The service is open to anyone over 18 years of age and can be accessed by appointment, which are delivered via phone or video call.
When you speak to a Health Improvement Coach they will support you to make a personal health plan to help you change. There will be a plan to help you keep track of your progress. You can look back to see what you have achieved along the way, to remind you of just what you are capable of. It is also a way to keep track of what your mini goal is.
A mini goal is a goal set by you, to achieve in time for the next session with your Health Improvement Coach. It is something you think you will be able to achieve, which will be a stepping stone in your behaviour change.
Example of a mini goal:
- Walk for 30 minutes on Monday, Wednesday and Friday
- Go to bed 30 minutes earlier each night
- Practice mindful eating at breakfast each day.
