OneLife Suffolk provides up to 12 months of FREE adult weight management support, providing you with the tools, advice and guidance needed to improve your lifestyle, achieve your weight loss goals and more importantly, sustain the changes made for good.

You will start by joining one of our 12-week group programmes which gives you the intensive support you need to start your weight loss journey. Our programmes are psychologically informed and each session lasts between one and one and a half hours with a 30-minute drop-in before or after. Our practitioners don’t tell people what to do; instead, you will be guided and supported to understand how thoughts, emotions and feelings influence decisions.

Once you have completed your 12-week programme, you will be offered ongoing monthly maintenance sessions and membership to our OneLife Suffolk Club. These sessions provide you with an opportunity to talk to us about any challenges you may be facing. We are then able to provide you with additional support. You can also continue to have your weight checked by your practitioner and share tips and advice with your fellow group members, as well as gain tips from them too!

Worried about Diabetes?

By reducing your weight by 5 – 10 % you could significantly decrease your risk of conditions such as Type 2 Diabetes.

Statistic from Your local Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme

A record number of people in the UK are living with Type 2 diabetes. This figure has more than doubled since 1996. Sadly, many people will experience potentially preventable complications because of diabetes, simply because they don’t know enough about their condition and how to manage it.

The good news is, if you’re at risk of Type 2 diabetes there are lots of small changes you can make to prevent diabetes from developing in the first place. The first thing to do is find out if you are at risk.

Find out if you’re one of over 5 million people in the UK who are at high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. To find out more about how to prevent diabetes, please visit the NHS National Diabetes programme: www.england.nhs.uk/diabetes/diabetes-prevention/
