Supporting Your Well-Being
Chronic Illness Support
There are roughly 15 million people in the UK living with a chronic illness. We understand first hand the impact this can have on your life and that is why our Chronic Illness Management service supports you in getting the best out of life
What is a Chronic Illness?
A chronic condition is a human health condition or disease that is persistent or otherwise long-lasting in its effects or a disease that comes with time. The term chronic is often applied when the course of the disease lasts for more than three months.
Some of the most common Chronic Illnesses include:
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Chronic Pain
- High blood pressure
- Lower back pain
How can we help?
After several years in the health service, we understand the impact that Chronic Illness can have on your day-to-day life. A lot of the research shows that with effective psychological support and behavioural management, people living with Chronic Illness can improve their quality of life and ensure that they are engaged with activities and tasks that are important to them.
At Swift Psychology, we specialise in Chronic Illness management and have supported a number of individuals in regaining control of their lives. With several years experience in psychological therapy and health psychology, we can facilitate you in making positive and lasting change.
