About the Event
[Note: This was a members-only event, Playback details are listed below. We have had difficulty with processing some of the videos due to a lack of volunteers and/or expertise. Correction of captions is particularly affected, we aim to resolve this issue as soon as we're able]
Kim Clayden is a clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist. Members following our Facebook page and groups will be familiar with her weekly relaxation sessions, but she's also quite familiar with how the brain works, with a refreshing perspective on pain management and mental health, and an approach to both is both accessible to the layperson and to other HCPs that many patients and professionals find to be extraordinarily helpful.
Jo Southall is our resident Occupational Therapist and hosts a monthly #HMSALiveOT Q&A taking questions on all things Occupational Therapy.
Both are expert patients with a load of lived experience.
Each session includes both Occupational Therapy and Psychotherapeutic input, with Jo freely sharing a wealth of tips for making everyday tasks more manageable, and Kim adding some of the brain chemistry information that explains why we feel the way we do, and better yet, which chemicals do what, how to keep your levels topped up and of course, how to find a dose of the good ones quick-smart when you’re in a pinch. For some, much of this is brand new information, while for others it serves as a refresher that not only “confirmed that how I already manage the condition was in the most part a good way of managing it, but gave me the why's behind it", as one of last year's attendees remarked afterwards.
The weekly sessions deal with different challenges.
This wass a series of 5, weekly, 1 hour sessions running from 7-8pm on Saturday Nights.
