How we're different

No matter your experience or daily schedule, we'll help you take steps towards a healthier lifestyle.

The key thing that makes us different to other health and wellbeing providers is our use of evidence-based behavioural science, developed by University College London to support you to sustain changes in your behaviour. 

Most people just need a little bit of help, a brief intervention or a nudge in the right direction. For those that need a little more help, LiveWell Dorset provides personalised, one-to-one coaching.

What we do

We provide tailored guidance and support to help people become more healthy. Our service is free to all Dorset residents over the age of 18.

I'm delighted to be working with LiveWell Dorset and helping others to achieve positive changes in their lives, no matter how small. I love the outdoors and can be found mucking about on the water or walking in Dorset’s glorious countryside

How does this work?

The tailored approach LiveWell Dorset uses to come up with solutions to the things that are stopping us achieving our goals, is based upon work done by University College London developing the COM-B model of behaviour change. In this model, all behaviour is influenced by understanding a person’s capability to change, their opportunity to change and their motivation to change. By understanding which of these is the biggest barrier to change, we can tailor support accordingly. This model of behaviour change is at the centre of the support we offer, online and in person.
