Our single-session class teaching coping techniques for living with Long Covid - delivered in partnership with Talking Change.
If so, our Coping with Long Covid class could help you to gain a better understanding of how the physical effects of the virus may be affecting your mood, and learn helpful techniques for coping.
You do not need to have had a positive Covid-19 test.
The class is designed to support people who are feeling overwhelmed and struggling with the after-effects of having had the Covid-19 virus. If you believe you had Covid-19 but this wasn't confirmed by a positive test, you are still welcome to attend.
Our Coping with Long-Covid class introduces the common symptoms, as well as the longer-term effects of Covid-19.
We will explore the impact of these symptoms and the wider effects of the pandemic on your emotional wellbeing, relationships and quality of life.
Using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), we will explore strategies that can help with managing difficult physical symptoms such as breathlessness & fatigue, alongside our mood.
Coping with Long Covid is held as an online webinar using Zoom.
This is a little like watching a live video, with the option to type in questions for our facilitators.
It means you don’t need a camera or microphone, you can simply watch and listen, to learn alongside others within the comfort of your own home.
We hope that this session might offer you a helpful introduction to italk or Talking Change, but we appreciate that we cannot cover everything in one class. So, if you feel that you would like further support, you can access further support after the sessions.
Both italk and Talking Change have a number of treatments that are available to you that focus on helping you to manage your physical health and emotional wellbeing. You can find out more about italk treatments on our italk Health page, or if your GP is in Portsmouth visit the Talking Change website.
