Health Coaches

Do you want to become fitter and healthier?
Do you need some support to make these changes?

Health Coaches
Shoreditch Trust Health Coaches are available in three locations in Hackney to help you identify and work towards achieving your own personal health and wellbeing goals.

Health Coaches are trained to offer a listening ear and provide support, motivation and encouragement as you make lifestyle changes to improve your health and wellbeing. Together, you can create a Health Action Plan which can help you to make small but significant changes in your life to improve your physical, mental and emotional health.

You can meet your Health Coach regularly to discuss progress towards your goals, learn from their expertise and make the most of local services and opportunities available to you.

Goals might include:
• Losing weight
• Building exercise into your weekly routine
• Learning new life skills
• Meeting new people.

As a Hackney resident, you can access to up to 12 one-hour sessions spread over four months - for free!
