What We Provide
1:1 Health Coaching
The purpose of health coaching is to help you to build a healthier lifestyle that enables you to perform your activities of daily living to the best of your ability and to enjoy a sense of wellbeing.
It recognises that life isn’t always straightforward and there are many factors that affect the way you think, feel and behave that can derail a healthy lifestyle. Health coaching aims to get you back on track and help you gain the knowledge and skills to increase the likelihood that any improvement will be sustained. It is not a quick fix, though you may find some benefit emerges quite quickly.
Health coaching focuses on you. It starts with looking at where you are now, where you want to be and involves setting SMART goals (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, time frame). Working with your coach you will decide how you are going to move forward, what information and support you might need and will check in regularly to monitor how things are going.
Group Weight Management Programme
Body composition scales are used to monitor weight, body fat and muscle mass in class.
Each week there is a different topic to enable you to start to manage your weight for life. The programme is not about dieting, but healthy eating, fitness and mental wellbeing all working together to achieve a healthy weight.
Each participant will receive a monthly progress report and bespoke advice to their inbox. This maps out what you have achieved, sets your next goals and provides information and advice to enable you to progress.
Group Fitness Instruction
Directly following on from the weight management class is the opportunity to exercise. These classes are suitable for anyone joining the programme who has not engaged in regular exercise and aims to build up a level of fitness that makes performing all your daily activities easier. As your fitness improves, you’ll be encouraged and supported to progress on your fitness journey.
Thrive aims to bring people together in a safe, supportive and caring environment. We encourage our members to respect each other’s individuality but recognize that we all need help at some time in our lives.
For some of our joiners the hardest thing for them may be coming through the door and talking to others, but everyone is assured a welcome and we make sure that you don’t feel alone.
We include “active socials” such as walks, playing rounders and “chill socials”, such as getting together for coffee as part of our package to bring people together. These events are facilitated but not led by Thrive so they aren’t counted as part of your class allowance.
We want to help the communities we work in, so talk to us about how Thrive might help. We may be able to offer specific support to those from disadvantaged backgrounds who want to improve their health and fitness or provide work experience for those who are unemployed and need to rebuild their confidence to re-enter the job market.
Mental Health First Aid Training
“Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a training course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.
MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.
You’ll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health, and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone while keeping yourself safe.
You’ll also learn how to empower someone to access the support they might need for recovery or successful management of symptoms. This could include self-help books or websites, accessing therapy services through their GP, their school or place of work, online self-referral, support groups, and more.
What’s more, you’ll gain an understanding of how to support positive wellbeing and tackle stigma in the world around you.”
