The SHINE programme incorporates the three interventions advocated by all obesity guidelines: nutritional therapy, physical activity, and behavioural modification – which includes psychological therapies to address anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and confidence, body image and bullying.
We aim to develop emotional literacy and social skills to help young people explore any psychological issues or potential underlying causes of obesity,
Our SHINE team worked with the Shine Health Academy to adapt its original programme that is delivered to children in mainstream schools, making it suitable for those with learning disabilities and / or autism. All of our tutors have completed extensive training with The Shine Health Academy.
SHINE requires attendance to an assessment and all sessions in the programme. Please see below the dates of the next SHINE programme and further information about what to expect at an assessment and during the sessions.
