Long Term Health Condition
Living with a long term health condition can be frustrating, tiring and worrying.
There are many challenges involved, especially when dealing with difficult or unpleasant symptoms, procedures or treatments. It's understandable that this can cause people to feel down, stressed or just not their usual selves.
We know that people who have a long term health condition are more susceptible to experiencing low mood, anxiety and stress, or find it difficult to cope with their usual daily activities, which can make it even harder to manage their long term health condition well.
At TALKWORKS we have a dedicated Talking Health Team, consisting of experienced practitioners, who can work with people to help them manage the emotional difficulties that often go hand in hand with experiencing a long term health condition.
TALKWORKS is a free NHS talking therapy service offering proven psychological treatments to help people across Devon make changes that can help them live well with their long term health condition.
