If you have had a Heart attack or similar cardio event, recovery can be slow and frustrating to many people. You can change your life around and become more optimistic about the future.
I am walking breathing testimony that this is possible with some guidance and a determination to succeed! When I first created Change Therapy many years ago, the aim was to provide extra support to survivors of cardio events by introducing gentle therapies that we could work through together, to benefit your overall wellbeing.
This includes altering your outlook on life, and learning how to be more positive about your life.
Positive Psychology and Optimism working hand in hand. Finding ways to accept what has happened to you and moving forward to explore new opportunities.
Some of the therapies that I offer are Mindfulness, Walk and Talk and Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, which are gentle and manageable without putting any pressure or strain on you physically. What they will do is improve your emotional state of mind. Optimism may not be something you associate with having a serious illness, however what I offer is an opportunity to try and become more accepting of what has happened and find new and positive ways of living with our experiences. We manage this through practicing the aforementioned Therapies.
I will guide you through these sessions, and together we will feel the benefit of positive psychology in practice. Carers or partners are welcome to attend for added support. All sessions are outside in a public place with plenty of opportunities to sit and rest.
As the years have rolled on in my practice, the overwhelming evidence is that the psychological impact on clients is very successful in aiding recovery, therefore I offered similar sessions to anyone that needed help and guidance, to cope with anxiety and depression. This is proving to be very popular and beneficial to many people. I work in collaboration with Get2gether, and support the British Heart Foundation, Salvesen Mindroom and Carers of East Lothian.
There is no charge for the above services until October 1st, when certain fees will apply. In the meantime, I would encourage donations to be made to any of the above charities which would be warmly appreciated.
