It can be very frightening when you can’t catch your breath

If you feel troubled by breathlessness you’re not alone. Our treatment has been shown to help patients cope better with their COPD, improve their quality of life and reduce symptoms of anxiety and low mood, which are very common in COPD.

What's included?

Your treatment will be delivered over six sessions, one per week. Your sessions will be personalised to meet your needs. Some of the topics that we cover are shown below.

  • Understanding COPD Everyone copes with their COPD diagnosis in their own way. You may already know a lot about COPD, or you may know very little. Learning more about COPD can help you understand your symptoms and discover how to take better care of yourself.

  • Managing Breathlessness Breathlessness is the main symptom that patients tell us they’d like to be able to manage better. Karen and her team will share some top tips designed to help you control your breathing, rather than letting it control you.

  • Keeping Active You may experience many different emotions with COPD. Panic, anxiety and worry are very common. This should come as no surprise as it’s frightening to lose your breath. In this session we’ll explore your worries and provide advice to help you cope better.

  • Staying Positive It can be difficult to remain positive when you’re not able to do what you used to be able to. Many patients tell us that they feel ashamed or embarrassed if they have these feelings and aren’t sure what they can do to cope. This session will explain what you can do to lift your mood when needed.

  • Staying well with COPD It’s important for you to keep as healthy as possible when you have COPD. This session is designed to give you the confidence manage things on your own moving forward and to cope with changes that may come - such as flare ups.
