Tailored support for people living with a long-term physical health condition

If you’re living with a long-term physical health condition, we know how challenging this can be for your emotional wellbeing.

We often hear that people feel they are given advice and tools for managing their condition, but not its impact on their life. That’s where we can help.

Our italk Health options aim to equip you with tools to build your resilience and live well.

 

 

Take a look at the options below, and choose your first step.

 

SilverCloud

SilverCloud is an online programme teaching simple steps you can take to feel more positive, more motivated and more in control.

Wellbeing Classes for Long-Term Health Conditions

Our wellbeing classes offer bitesized wellbeing tips, and we're developing a range of classes tailored to specific physical health conditions such as diabetes, lung conditions or chronic pain. 

Check this page, or follow us on Facebook or Twitter to hear when our new classes are launched! 

In the meantime, you may find our Breathing Space class helpful. It teaches simple and effective ways to feel calmer and manage stress day to day, and is open to all italk patients.

Building Resilience with Long-Term Health Conditions

Building Resilience is our free 6-week course teaching a full toolkit of skills for building your resilience when you’re living with a long-term physical health condition.

It’s held as a webinar, which is 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, and we find people enjoy being able to learn alongside others from the comfort of home.

The course aims to help you find it easier to manage your physical health condition in the way that you want to, and enjoy life in the way you deserve to.

Some of the many things you’ll learn include:

  • How symptoms of anxiety can mimic our physical health conditions, how to spot the difference, and how to manage them.
  • How to understand and overcome barriers to achieving our wellbeing goals – such as, why do we sometimes make plans with the best intentions, and then find ourselves falling back into old habits? Whatever your plans are, we’ll look at how to make them easier to stick to.
  • How to figure out a sustainable level of activity for you, if you often find yourself needing to take time to rest and recover.

Living Well with Long-Term Health Conditions

Our Living Well with Long-Term Health Conditions group is an interactive space to explore the relationship between your physical health and emotional wellbeing with others in similar situations.

If this group is recommended by one of our practitioners following an assessment, you’ll be offered a choice of dates wherever possible. Participants start with individual sessions 1-1 with a practitioner, before you meet each other and move forward together in your small group sessions.

Over 12 weeks, you’ll learn skills to manage those difficult experiences that may be associated with your health condition, allowing you to focus on the aspects of your life that give you meaning and enjoyment. 

If you feel this group would be suitable for you, request an assessment when you refer to explore the most suitable options with one of our practitioners.
