What is the wellbeing service?
Living with a long term health condition can be worrying, frustrating and
stressful. We offer a wellbeing service where you can discuss the
difficulties you face and learn tools and techniques to help you to manage
your emotional wellbeing and maximise your physical health.
We offer one-to-one sessions, online therapy and group sessions in a
variety of locations across Wiltshire, including in GP surgeries.
We also work with other health care professionals (e.g. GPs, nurses,
physiotherapists, occupational therapists) to ensure you have ‘joined-up
care’ and that both your physical and emotional wellbeing is supported.
Who can access the wellbeing service?
The wellbeing service supports people with diabetes (type 1 or type 2),
chronic or persistent pain, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome/ME and
COPD. We support people who are feeling low, worried, anxious, stressed,
frustrated or overwhelmed.
To access the service, you need to be over 16 years old and registered with
a Wiltshire GP.
Weight management support
The Wiltshire IAPT service also supports people who are struggling with
weight management. We recognise that how we are feeling and thinking can
influence our behaviour, including our diet and activity, and that making
changes can be difficult. The wellbeing service helps people with their
mood and wellbeing in order that they can make steps towards the changes
that are important to them. If you would like help in this area, please
call us to book an appointment with a wellbeing practitioner.
We are pleased to announce we will be running a twelve-week weight
management and wellbeing course in Devizes from 4th June 2019
jointly with our colleagues at Shape Up 4 Life. This will be an educational
and supportive group running for twelve weeks. For more information, please
call our office on 01380 731 335.
