Our client experience

"Lisa is a much happier, confident person now. She is enjoying going out to places with support staff."

"Elizabeth lost just over half a stone while working with myself. This in turn increased her confidence."

"I have found the sessions to be helpful, informative and educational, delivered in a manner that I would more expect from a well-intentioned friend than a health trainer."

Andy, Ferryhill

"Angela achieved a number of healthy lifestyle changes as well as some significant weight loss."

"I would wholeheartedly recommend the Wellbeing for Life Service to anyone to refocus one’s life in a positive way."

Steve, 46, Seaham
