new year image

The new year is here!

A new year often signifies a fresh start for many people. For some, this means setting health goals, such as losing weight, following a healthier diet or and starting an exercise routine.

When it comes to new year's resolutions it can be easy to get stuck on the same old things you say you're going to change every year.

To break the pattern, we've come up with some helpful tips to help you sustain your changes. We also offer a range of services that can help you improve your health and wellbeing.

wellbeing package

Wellbeing package

Remember you can still access our comprehensive Wellbeing Package.

At Horsham Wellbeing we recognise that there is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach when it comes to staying healthy.

The new package looks more closely at three different areas of health and wellbeing; emotional wellbeing and emotional eating, healthy eating and nutrition and physical activity.

If you feel ready and motivated to make changes to your diet, and lifestyle but don’t want to join a long course, this may be just what you are looking for. We are currently able to offer this online or by telephone.

Smoking - don't go it alone

We can support you

Stopping smoking is one of the best things you'll ever do for your health. When you stop, you give your lungs the chance to repair and you'll be able to breathe easier. There are lots of other benefits too - and they start almost immediately.

Many people try to quit smoking with willpower alone, but it's much easier with the right help. We provide a free stop smoking service to those that live or work in the Horsham District.

Our service offers one-to-one appointments with a trained advisor, motivational interviewing techniques to empower you to quit and information on nicotine replacement therapy (such as gum, nasal sprays, patches) as well as Champix. Where appropriate we can also provide you with these products.

Another useful tool is the NHS Smokefree app. The app allows you to track your progress, see how much you're saving and get daily support.

Alcohol support

If you've been finding it difficult to control your drinking recently and want advice and support to cut down, we can help. 

Our Alcohol support service provides a series of one to one sessions to support people who may be drinking a bit too much and want to cut down or stop drinking altogether to enjoy a healthier lifestyle.

It is a confidential, non-judgemental service with no group work involved.

Although December is behind us it's still important to stay well over the coming few months. With less time spent outdoors and shorter, darker days it’s important to keep your mood up, stay healthy and keep as active as possible.
