  • Developing skills to help you, including changing unhelpful thoughts, communication, assertiveness, relaxation, and pleasant activities.
  • Planning for you and your relative’s future needs.
  • Helping you maintain the skills you have learned over time.

 

There will be eight sessions each lasting one hour and each will include:
