Educational Support

I implement effective self-management strategies and techniques to promote optimal self-care among patients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes, behaviours and feelings towards their daily life situations. Based on the theory of self-efficacy, one goal is to increase your confidence while undertaking tasks which improve your health and well-being. It is essential to keep in mind that this process is not a magic pill or a quick fix: the process requires active participation and investment from you. But in the end, making even small changes to self-defeating behaviours and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results. A large body of research confirms that this approach results in significant benefits- reducing pain and improving quality of life.
