Gloucestershire Self Management

Description

Self-management is about finding ways, and learning techniques, which enable you to control your long-term health condition, rather than having it control you.

Live Better to Feel Better has been designed with you in mind, to provide you with these techniques as well as the confidence and awareness to use them appropriately.

What we Do

Most people living with a long-term health condition know that life can be difficult and can seem overwhelming at times.

On our self-management programme you will meet others living with long-term conditions and explore together common symptoms you may face.

Our trained facilitators all have long-term conditions themselves, and understand these challenges and feelings. They will lead discussions about techniques that might help, and support you to put a plan together to use these in your day-to-day life.

We will help you find community resources, including support groups, or signpost to a specific course for a particular condition if that’s right for you.

You can find more information in our leaflet.
