Seminars for Local Communities
There is good evidence that offering health and wellbeing programs helps to improve the health of individuals and their overall wellbeing. Benefits include a healthier lifestyle, increased confidence, an improvement in relationships with others, and overall greater life satisfaction and fulfillment.
Health & Wellbeing Training Consultants Pty Ltd provides a range of health and wellbeing seminars for the public in the local community.
Our seminars presented in the community are two hours in duration. They provide easy-to-use behaviour change strategies that guide the individual to action and incorporate group activities specific to the participants’ needs.
The seminars can be delivered at local community health centres, sporting clubs, neighbourhood houses and other public meeting rooms.
If you would like a shorter session presented, please contact us.
Additional workshop/programs that can be presented:

- 8 week health and wellbeing program
Please contact us for further details.
Quit smoking 6 week program
This program is presented over 6 weeks with each session of the program running for 1 – 2 hours (depending on the availability of staff, the timing of the session is flexible.)
Over 6 weeks, the program explores addiction and smoking behaviour, various challenges of quitting, such as stress, weight gain and managing alcohol without smoking, as well as quitting smoking methods and medications, relapse prevention, electronic cigarettes and support services available.
Throughout the 6 session program, participants will be asked to reflect on their own challenges to quitting and potential triggers to start smoking again. Effective strategies to deal with these concerns will be explored and identified within the group. There will be many opportunities in the sessions for reflection and review, with non-threatening group discussion and activities incorporated throughout the program.
Health and wellbeing 8 week program
The health and wellbeing 8 week program consists of two half day workshops focusing on good health and wellbeing, and an additional 6 follow up sessions over an 8 weeks’ duration (one week apart).
This program explores personal habits and general lifestyle concepts, and includes planning and goal setting to help participants improve their quality of life and their overall health and wellbeing.
In both the half-day workshops, a range of behaviour change strategies will be shared that are easy to use and practical to help participants take action and ultimately improve their quality of life and their overall health and wellbeing.
Following the half day workshops, a follow up session of one and a half hours duration will be provided on a weekly basis for 6 weeks.
These sessions will be based on reviewing and discussing specific content and/or providing further detailed information, including practical tips and strategies. This will be dependent on the groups’ needs, with the presenter responding in a flexible way to the groups’ requests.
The sessions will also largely focus on group discussion/feedback/sharing of experiences on relevant exercises and activities. In particular, attention will focus on each individual’s personal goals, their action plan and the steps they plan to implement to achieve their health and wellbeing objective/s. This will help to further facilitate behaviour change amongst the group members as well as encourage group members to share their ideas and support each other with some of the challenges/hurdles they may be facing.
