Relax in an atmosphere of acceptance and understanding as you become big on the inside and watch what happens on the outside!
How does it work?
Participants meet once a week to discuss challenges they are facing and to share their successes. They will receive support, tips, fresh ideas and encouragement as they navigate their journey to a healthier weight. Jacinta will act as a facilitator, keeping the discussion moving and providing insights linked to key themes that emerge each week.
Participants will receive a special Big on the Inside Journal in which to track their progress and to record key learning points.
12 Week Program and Session Structure
The program runs in blocks of 12 sessions, 2 hours per session. The first week is titled “Getting to Know You”. The session guidelines are explained, which include confidentiality agreements, code of conduct and the philosophy behind Big on the Inside. Then each participant sets personal goals and prepares a plan for the journey ahead. Personal introductions will be made and stories shared for those who feel comfortable doing this. This first session can take up to 3 hours.
The next 10 sessions open with a short introduction from Jacinta, followed by an update from each participant who receives instant feedback from the group. At the end of the session, everyone commits to at least one action for the coming week and summarizes the personal learning gained from the session.
The Session 12 will be an “Acknowledgement and Closure” session where we look back on the journey, review the key themes and consolidate the learning which has emerged over the 12 weeks.
Plans will be set for the next steps so that the momentum continues after the program ends. The group will also discuss whether they wish to continue for another block of sessions. Sometimes people are quite happy to finish at this point while others enjoy the group support and decide to continue for another 12 weeks. This is entirely up to the individuals to decide what is right for them.
The package includes:
- 12 weekly sessions of group support, plus the Big on the Inside journal, a copy of the book, My Perfect Weight, and session handouts
- 25% discount off individual coaching sessions booked with Jacinta
