My health for life is a free, six-month program where you work with a health coach to achieve your health goals.
It is a State government-funded initiative, delivered by an alliance of health organisations, and is designed to help Queenslanders stay well and lessen their risk of developing conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
Choosing either small group sessions, or one-on-one phone coaching, you explore topics such as nutrition, physical activity, understanding your personal risk of developing health conditions and how to make healthier choices a part of everyday life.
With the support of your coach, you will also develop an action plan. Whether your goal is to get more active, eat better, stress less, or lose weight, the focus is on building a step-by-step plan to help you achieve your goals over time.
Group programs are available at Banyo Clinic, and are delivered by our clinic Registered Nurse Heidi Morris.
The Group Sessions are a positive and supportive environment to share and learn as a group, while working on your own personal health goals.
You will have six sessions with your group over six months. The first session is a one-on-one appointment with your health coach (Nurse Heidi) where you both gain an understanding of your needs and goals.
Sessions are run fortnightly and you will have a 12-week break between sessions five and six.
