Lifestyle Advisor Service

                     

         

My name is Lucy Hodgkins and myself and my colleague Sabine Spires are the workers for the New Lifestyle Advisor Service based at Citizens Advice in Malvern. 

I have worked in Malvern for about 15 years in roles involving advice and guidance supporting vulnerable clients and Sabine has most recently worked with a Malvern based charity called Experiment in International Living supporting people to experience intercultural learning programmes. She has also worked in coaching and training in previous roles. We are both excited about this project because it will give us the opportunity to work one to one supporting clients to make positive changes in their lives.  

The keys areas we will be focusing on are weight management, smoking cessation, alcohol reduction, improved wellbeing and becoming more active. We will work with clients for a period of up to 6 months by setting goals with them and creating a plan to support positive change. We work Tuesday – Friday and will be working with clients in a way they are most comfortable with including telephone, web based interviews and face to face appointments when Covid restrictions permit.
