Our 10 week weight management programme gives you practical information and support to help you lose weight. Each session is an hour and a half, including a 30 minutes exercise component. The programme looks at different topics each week such as portion sizes, snacking, getting active and drinks.
We have a number of beginner’s activity classes running across the borough. The first six sessions are free and each weekly session lasts one hour. Activities on offer include Chair Based Exercise and Walking Clubs.
These six week beginner’s cookery classes are held in various community locations across the triborough. Each week’s ingredients are provided and the groups cook up… and eat healthy, affordable and easy to make meals each week. Recipe cards for what has been made are also provided.
Healthy Hearts work closely with their sister service, Kick It. Through this service we provide specialist support and stop smoking medications to help you stop smoking for good. If you can’t make regular appointments that’s fine too, the My Quit self-help package is also available to Healthy Hearts clients.
Self-help materials are on offer for clients struggling with issues like stress, anxiety and depression. As well as the option of self help workbooks and resources we also have strong local partnerships with local wellbeing services and your Healthy Hearts Care Planner will discuss the options available to you.
There are a number of local alcohol support and treatment services available in the triborough area. Healthy Hearts Care Planners can if appropriate access these services for our clients. Please let your Healthy Hearts Care Planners know if you feel you could benefit from these services.
