This free workshop is for people living with a cardiac condition (including people who have had a heart attack, angina, heart surgery, and heart failure). It will teach skills and techniques to adjust and better cope emotionally. This is based on a psychological approach called Cognitive Behavioural Theory (CBT), which has been shown to be helpful for many people with cardiac problems.

Topics covered include:

  • Understanding the impact of physical health on emotional wellbeing
  • The process of adjustment and acceptance
  • Techniques for managing difficult thoughts
  • Communication skills
  • Helpful ways to move forward

This is a taught session, run in a group format, so although there will be some group discussion it is up to you how much or how little you choose to take part.

Important information:
We are currently able to offer this course to people registered with a Wiltshire GP. Please give us a call on 01793 835710/1 to book a place.
