Living with Long-term Conditions

Living with a long-term condition isn’t plain sailing and we don’t always get the support we need when things get tough.

This course is for anyone living with a long-term physical condition and who wants to find ways of managing and improving their psychological wellbeing. Conditions may include:

  •     Arthritis
  •     Back pain
  •     Fibromyalgia
  •     Diabetes
  •     Heart disease
  •     Asthma
  •     Crohn’s
  •     Epilepsy

You don’t have to be referred by your doctor to attend this course.

The course will teach you tools to help you handle your emotions and tackle difficulties you might be facing now, or in the future. These might be directly related to your illness or condition, or could be other challenges entirely. The great thing about these techniques is that you can apply them across all areas of your life.

You’ll learn different stress and mood management skills, ways to better handle fears and worries, relaxation techniques, and get help to make positive plans for the future.

Courses are interactive, engaging and fun.

I found the course much more helpful than I expected. I feel I can help myself relax and deal with my health issues more now than ever before.
