Gavin at St John's Church Hall

Your Consultant is


I joined Slimming World 4 years ago when my GP informed me I was on a rocky road to Type 2 diabetes. This worried me, as members of my family have suffered from severe health issues related to diabetes and it wasn’t something that appealed to me. Destined to change my life, I shed 3 stones to get within a healthy weight range. After going along my journey as a slimmer, I felt inspired to help others, I wanted to change peoples' lives and make them feel like I felt the day I reached target; and so I became a Consultant. Taking the first step into any Slimming World Group is daunting, and I have every admiration for any member walking through my doors. Losing weight will be fun with me and my Group, come along and see how we can help!

Your first time at a Slimming World group

As soon as you walk through the doors, you’ll get a warm welcome from your Consultant and fellow members. Before you go ahead and join, your Consultant will explain everything you need to know about our delicious Food Optimising plan.

You’ll then be invited to enjoy our support session where our members share ideas, recipes and their inspirational stories – this is where the magic happens!

Along with other new members, you’ll enrol and weigh-in privately – your weight always remains confidential.

The session will last around 1½ hours – there's no obligation to join, but you’ll be so glad you did!
