What can participants expect:
At Be Well Live Well, our goal is to empower you to make lasting changes that positively impact your health and wellbeing. We don't just talk about problems and give advice; instead, we take an active approach using evidence-based behaviour change techniques, including motivational interviewing (MI), goal setting, action planning, and elements of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
Throughout the program, we'll help you learn new skills to overcome barriers and better care for your health while also acknowledging that some things may be beyond your personal control. We'll engage in discussions about your values and what matters most to you, identifying your strengths and qualities to take steps toward a healthier life.
After each session, we encourage you to develop an action plan, a specific and practical step you can take to actively improve your health. We understand that change can be challenging and uncomfortable at times, but rest assured that our team is here to support you every step of the way.
As part of the program, we'll explore mindfulness and various physical activities that may be new or challenging for you. Please remember that participation in these activities is entirely optional, and you are free to say no or sit out at any time.
