CBT for long-term physical health conditions

Living with a long-term physical health condition can be both physically and mentally demanding. It is common for people with long-term health problems to feel stressed, worried, angry and depressed. This can impact their day to day life and the people around them.

CBT can help by providing an open space to speak about how you are feeling and how your condition impacts you. Your therapist will guide you with tools and techniques that make daily life more manageable.
