Persistent Pain Peer Support Group

Our monthly group meets to offer support to live well with persistent pain.

Our friendly group can provide support, advice and ideas for managing pain. Recent topics have included:

  • Pacing yourself
  • Priorities and planning
  • Setting goals
  • Medication

The group sometimes has guest speakers to cover relevant topics, such as Manasi Peters, the Physiotherapy Supervisor at the local Primary Care Network. One group was run by 2 Occupational Therapy students on placement with us, who did some art therapy with the group. Photos from that session are below:

Some recent feedback from group attendees:

I learned to pace myself – from the toolkit of pain.

I learned to take breaks more often.

I really enjoyed the session and got helpful information.
