Chronic Illness Support
Helping you Manage Symptoms, Fatigue and Pain
TELEHEALTH sessions on a secure platform.
We understand that chronic illness can be overwhelming and isolating. Managing symptoms, fatigue, and pain put a huge amount of pressure on a person. Adding to this, long-term health conditions are also mentally taxing.
Can Therapy Help with Chronic Illness?
- Changing Roles/Abilities
- Relaxation strategies
- Coping Skills
- Pain Perception
Explaining to family, friends, and co-workers about your illness and the way that it manifests in your life can feel overwhelming. Chronic illness sufferers are often met with mixed emotions when sharing their struggle with others. Unfortunately, this can mean being met with stigma and negative attitudes.
Chronic Illness is NOT...
- Always Visible
- Made Up
- The Person’s Fault
- Attention Seeking
- A Sign of Weakness
Let's break the stigma!
