Event Details

If you live in Galway and are living with chronic migraine, this course may be for you.

Taking place one night a week for three weeks, this course will focus on the emotional impact of living with a chronic condition with an aim to empower participants with self-management tools and pain-management strategies.

The contents of the course include:

  • Mapping your migraine journey
  • Primary and secondary suffering
  • Communicating pain
  • Thought patterns and pain
  • Pain reduction methods
  • Pacing as a tool
  • Acceptance and self-compassion
  • Exploring new approaches

Due to the nature of the course, we would kindly ask you to consider your willingness/readiness to address the emotional impact of living with a chronic condition. While this course is primarily for promoting self-management techniques, it does highlight the more difficult aspects of living with chronic pain and therefore a capacity to engage with these topics is required.

Due to the ongoing government restrictions relating to Covid-19 this course has been redesigned to accommodate an online format. The course will be delivered through Zoom. Every Monday before the course evening, I will send out the course content and appendices that will be covered in the course for you to print or download.
