Courage doesn't always roar. somestimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying: "I will try again tomorrow". - Mary Anne Radmacher
Find the support you need
In a world where most human interactions begin with “Hi, how are you?”, it can be unexpectedly hard for the chronically ill person to find a suitable response. Whereas the typical course of illness and injury in humans is time-limited and clear, chronic illness is ongoing and complex and so is the mental health impact.
Through this group, Finding Wellness Within Illness, you will get a foundational understanding of one therapeutic modality that can be particularly helpful in the management of ongoing health issues: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (pronounced “ACT”). Many modalities seek symptom reduction as an outcome of the treatment, however with ongoing health issues, symptom reduction may not be a realistic or appropriate end goal. As such, the ACT approach of pursuing what is important and fulfilling in the presence of symptoms emerges as a more realistic, albeit challenging, endeavor.
Join this free session of Finding Wellness Within Illness and prepare to unlock validation, compassion and gratitude and reclaim agency over your health struggles.
