What type of support will I receive?

The amount of support you receive will depend on how you choose to do this course. If the healthcare professional you are working with prescribes it for you, they will receive updates on your wellbeing and progress so they can support you.

If you choose the self-care method, you won't get support from your health professional. The self-care method is designed to enhance motivation and self-reliance. Provided you complete all parts of the course, your results from the self-care method will be as good as with supervision.

How long will it take?

You can take this free course at your own pace. It is best to do one lesson every week or two, so you have time to practise and revise the new skills you've learnt. After you've finished, we'll keep your account open so you can revisit the course at any time.
