Temporary Changes due to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

WE ARE OPEN. We are continuing to accept referrals. Throughout the pandemic we have been offering telephone, video and online therapy, all of which have proved to be successful. Face to face appointments are also available. Due to Coronavirus (Covid-19), we have made some temporary changes to keep you and our staff safe.

Temporary Changes due to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Fibromyalgia education group

We often receive referrals from the Rheumatology Department, when an individual has been newly diagnosed with fibromyalgia to offer them the fibromyalgia education group.

This is co-facilitated with an occupational therapist from the Rheumatology Department from Doncaster Royal Infirmary. This is currently a two session pre-recorded session that is split into six 30 minute video links that that you can watch in your own time.

The fibromyalgia education group aims to:

  • Explore what fibromyalgia is
  • Identify the impact of fibromyalgia health changes as a long term health condition
  • Deliver information on self-managing the condition
  • Validate the Individuals diagnosis

Some of the topics covered in the education course are:

  • Understanding pain
  • Balancing activity and exercise
  • Pacing techniques
  • Boom and bust / energy conservation techniques / spoon theory
  • Physical activity diary
  • Goals setting
  • Stress – anxiety and panic
  • Challenging thoughts and worry management
  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • Sleep hygiene
