Mental Health Support for People with Diabetes
I would like to take this opportunity to offer a support group for people who are living with diabetes during this difficult time. This session will be dedicated towards sharing and discussing any issues or emotions that have emerged as a result of Covid19; how these have affected your diabetes management and how we can set some mindful goals to discover a self-compassionate, self-caring approach to deal with diabetes.
I am an HCPC and Badth registered therapist specialised in Art Therapy. My approach is mindful and creative.
