Description

This is a 4-week course running every Wednesday at 2.30 from 28 February to 21 March 2018.

Living with a skin condition can affect your mood, you might notice that the physical symptoms can feel burdensome, or stress might contribute to a worsening of your symptoms. Skin conditions can also have an impact on your social life, work and relationships. Sometimes you might notice that you feel anxious, low, stressed or embarrassed, or you might have worries about the appearance of your skin condition. Because of how you are feeling you might have stopped doing things you previously enjoyed.

Living well with a skin condition wellbeing sessions are available to all people who are living with a skin condition who would like to learn practical ways to overcome symptoms of stress, anxiety and low mood. The wellbeing sessions can also help to increase confidence in coping with some of the challenges of having a skin condition, and improving general health and wellbeing.

What can I expect from these sessions?

Wellbeing sessions are delivered by two NHS professionals. You will have the opportunity to meet others living with skin conditions who may share similar feelings and experiences to you.

How will this help me?

  • Find ways of managing the physical symptoms of your skin condition and the impact these symptoms might be having on your mood

  • Learn how to manage low mood stress and anxiety

  • Deal with worries about your skin condition
