What is a Lifestyle Advisor?

The Lifestyle Advisor Service offers advice, information and support to individuals looking to make positive lifestyle changes.

Whether you are looking for ways you can become more active, eat more healthily, reduce the amount of alcohol you drink or you want to stop smoking, the Lifestyle Advisors can support you.

They offer one to one support via face to face appointments or using telephone consultations and are looking to develop group-based opportunities also for those that prefer this level of support.

The service is free and can be accessed by individuals via their GP practise.

If you want to lose weight, feel healthier or just want to feel better about yourself Lifestyle Advisors can motivate you to make those changes and develop an action plan to get you to where you want to be.
