Improve health and well-being:​

  • LIFT Session - LIFT Session is a digital fitness and wellness platform focused on helping organizations build a more active and engaged workforce by providing world-class fitness and wellness benefits. LIFT includes personalized wellness journeys with a library of different workout types (yoga, HIIT, low-impact, prenatal, and more!) and the ability to chat with wellness experts. A wide variety of classes are accessible to all fitness levels, accommodate any schedule, and require no equipment.

  • Health Coaching - Our service connects clients with certified health coaches who embrace a holistic wellness philosophy that involves working with individuals from an “inside out approach”: achieving small, incremental steps based on the individual’s goals, readiness, values, beliefs, pace, and tolerance to change and priorities. Our coaches assist clients in making positive lifestyle changes (i.e. meditation, weight management, nutrition, stress management, etc.) through a combination of assessments, health and wellness resources, exercises and 1-to-1 personal coaching. This unique coaching approach, combined with web-based resources and wellness workbooks, results in a positive experience and a high level of lasting change.

 

  • Nutritional Counselling – Our service offers advice about issues such as weight loss, healthy eating, and specific health and diet risks related to conditions such as cancer or diabetes. Further, these services include an evaluation and interview with a dietician qualified to recommend and monitor a structured diet plan, including follow-up and support.

  • Smoking Cessation Support – As behavioural health specialists, we recognize the psychological significance of the decision to quit smoking and the challenge of overcoming nicotine dependency. Our smoking cessation support services provide information to support the decision to quit, information about treatment options for nicotine dependency, and clinical counselling support (where needed), to help “quitters” stay on track.
