WELLBEING FOR DIABETES

The aim of this webinar is to help people to develop skills to manage some of the emotional difficulties that can be related to Diabetes. We know that people sometimes change their behaviours when they feel low or have a bad day, such as eating unhealthily or not exercising. These behaviours are not a problem on occasion, but can sometimes feed into cycles of low mood, which may lead us to think in critical ways about ourselves and reduce our confidence. This webinar will explore ways of coping with difficulties to better manage both your emotions and your Diabetes.
