to start your weight loss journey

Group support

Unrivalled support every step of the way

A key part of LighterLife is the great support you receive. Research shows that small groups are more successful than one to one work.   Groups help you make long term lasting change.

Life-changing weight loss

Your LighterLife journey

What to expect from our group support

LighterLife isn’t a one size fits all programme. With us it’s about you and not just the food. Everyone who uses LighterLife is on an individual journey.

But you won’t be travelling alone – like most journeys, its better when others are along for the ride Whichever way you choose to do LighterLife - either in one of our Centres or over the telephone on LighterLife2U, you’ll be part of a supportive group. You’ll also have a LighterLife Counsellor guiding you every step of the way.

Our expertly-trained LighterLife Counsellors will help you to understand what’s happening in your body and mind, so you can explore why you eat in the way you do.

Separate groups for men and women

LighterLife is a great programme for men and women. But we’ve found that single-sex groups work best. So with LighterLife you’ll join a small group made up exclusively of men, or of women, for your journey to long term weight maintenance success.

LighterLife client Debbie recalls her experience of what it's like to be in a LighterLife group:
