British Society of Lifestyle Medicine
The British Society of Lifestyle Medicine is an independent charity that looks to transform healthcare and level health inequalities through lifestyle medicine. We believe many chronic diseases can be prevented, managed, and even reversed by properly applied lifestyle medicine principles.
Lifestyle Medicine is evidence-based, clinical care that supports behaviour change through person-centred techniques to improve mental wellbeing, social connection, healthy eating, physical activity, sleep and the minimisation of harmful substances and behaviours.
We now have more than 1500 members drawn from a range of disciplines including primary and secondary care clinicians, allied and public health professionals, scientists, educators, researchers, and patients.
We are part of the Lifestyle Medicine Global Alliance, a network of lifestyle medicine societies in countries across the world, and the European Lifestyle Medicine Council.
Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis (OMS) and HelloSelf share the belief that access to evidence-based resources and support is essential for wellness, particularly when you are navigating life with multiple sclerosis. OMS and HelloSelf launched a collaborative project to help individuals in the OMS community access high-quality psychological support and to better understand how therapy can support wellness in those living with MS.
HelloSelf is a private psychology clinic based in London and online. They have their own secure psychologically-minded online platform that helps facilitate improving wellness between sessions. They have over 80 Clinical psychologists, Counselling psychologists and CBT therapists with different areas of expertise and specialities including chronic health conditions. Their mission is to reduce barriers to quickly accessing excellent individualised care to help every Self achieve and maintain wellness. HelloSelf hopes to help those living with MS manage not only mental health diagnoses but also any struggles with identity, uncertainty and other themes that may impact their quality of life. HelloSelf can provide a dedicated space to explore these themes in individual sessions, can provide support for loved ones of those living with MS and can provide support to couples to help them through any challenges that they might face.
