“We are a team of Physiotherapists and Psychological Practitioners. We run a group programme to support you to manage your chronic fatigue symptoms. The group takes place in these three areas:

  • Ulverston
  • Barrow-in-Furness
  • Kendal

“The aim of the group is to give you a better understanding of your physical symptoms and mood, and to learn different ways to cope with these.

“If you decide that you would like to come to the group, you will be expected to come to all of the 8 group sessions over a 3 month period, with a final group review around 3 months later. The sessions last 2 ½ hours and take place on Fridays.

“We use an approach that looks at you as a whole person: your physical symptoms as well as your mood and what is important to you. Our resources on the biopsychosocial model and mind-body link may help you to understand why we take this approach. The approach is supported by government guidelines, our experience, and the feedback from previous group members.”
