What is it?

The course is 5 sessions over 5 weeks, each session is 2.5 hours long. There are usually between 10-15 people who will attend.
Who is this suitable for?
This course is suitable for anyone who lives with a long term condition who is interested in taking a more active approach in the self-management of their condition. We know that living with a long term condition can be challenging and stressful at times. This may be because the health condition itself can be demanding to manage and/or the condition may be having a significant impact upon many different aspects of life including routine activities, mood, energy, sleep and relationships.

We hope this workshop will make a real practical difference in your day-to-day management of your condition and your psychological well-being. On this course you can expect to:
Learn what it means to live with and manage your long term condition, for example, learn how to take a problem solving approach to overcome difficulties or manage your energy levels through pacing activities.

Meet and share learning with other people living with a long term condition.
