Heart Conditions and Stroke Patients

Experiencing a stroke, heart attack or living with a long term heart condition can easily cause additional stresses and worries in your life that can have a knock-on detrimental effect on your mental health. And feeling more stressed, anxious or depressed can make physical conditions feel worse.

Steps2Wellbeing offer cognitive behavioural therapy specifically for people suffering from long term health conditions, helping you to understand and overcome the negative ways long term health conditions can affect your mental health. This can improve your wellbeing, giving you a new lease of life and helping you to cope both physically and mentally.
