Health trainers support improvements for local Westbury residents

Would you like help in making positive lifestyle changes? 

If so, support is in place in the town with two dedicated health trainers, Deb Griffin and Beverley Salter; working in the Westbury community area they can work with you to achieve these aims. The service is open to anyone over the age of 18 years of age and, can be accessed by appointment in a variety of public venues in and around Westbury and the surrounding villages.

Health trainers work on a one to one basis to support behaviour change and improve health. They concentrate on behaviours associated with ill health including unhealthy eating often linked to obesity, stop or reduce smoking, sensible drinking, increasing physical activity, reducing anxiety and boosting self-esteem, they also signpost to other services and activities where appropriate.

Health trainers work with their clients for six one hour sessions, building motivation and confidence to enable the client to help themselves and maintain the changes.
