Our Weight Management Programme - "Momenta" is delivered in partnership with NCC Public Health to help participants lose weight in a safe and sustainable way.  
 
Unlike many other Weight Loss initiatives, Momenta has been developed by experts in the fields of psychology, nutrition and physiology to provide an evidence based behavioural intervention to help you achieve your weight loss goals. 

All Momenta sessions are free of charge until March 2022. 

What to do: 

  • Sign up to the scheme via this expression of interest form or through your local GP and/or Health Practitioner 

  • Then, commit to our 12 week Momenta programme, attending a weekly 1 hour session in the classroom where you discuss and explore 12 key behaviours to help you on your weight loss journey 

  • At each of your weekly sessions, you will be helped to set a personal SMART goal which you can work towards 

  • After each weekly session there is an optional exercise session for you to take part in 

  • Finally, at the end of your programme we will discuss with you a suitable exit route from the programme so you can continue to set and reach your goals.
