Group Sessions

Biosafety organizes group nutrition counseling sessions. Group sessions appear to be more effective than individual sessions in long-term weight management because of:

  • support from the team
  • problem solving
  • increased empathy
  • taking responsibility
  • the presence of others who may act as role models

Duration: 1 hour


Frequency: Weekly


Number of sessions: 10

During the sessions:

  • goal setting, tracking & discussing progress
  • tips & tools for weight management & changing problematic lifestyle habits

  • group activities
