Thistle Foundation - Support in Midlothian

Midlothian Wellbeing Service

Supporting individuals living with long-term health conditions and challenging life situations.

Thistle Foundation Midlothian Wellbeing Service is based in all twelve Midlothian GP Surgeries. We work with people age over 18 living with a variety of long-term health conditions including neurological conditions, and/or facing challenging life situations.

The wellbeing service offers a space for people to explore and plan non-medical ways of managing their health or difficult life circumstances. Our supported self-management uses a solution-focused approach that concentrates on the future and on what matters most to the person. We also connect people into activities and other support and services in their community.

We offer:

  • 1:1 wellbeing coaching
  • Support to develop a wellbeing plan
  • Group-based Lifestyle Management Course
  • Group based mindfulness courses
  • Group based new beginnings course for people struggling with bereavement

Lifestyle Management Course

The Lifestyle Management course is a ten week course designed to support adults who are dealing with long-term health conditions and/or difficult life situations, and who want to increase their ability to live as full a life as possible.

The course helps you gain control over your situation by making use of and building on your own coping and recovery strategies. It aims to boost confidence and self-esteem by acknowledging and celebrating the small successes you achieve along the way.

The 10-week programme consists of 10 group sessions lasting three hours with a break half way for tea and coffee. These sessions involve discussion, safe and appropriate exercise and therapeutic relaxation.

Our wellbeing teams can support you to start to think about what you are already doing to manage living with health difficulties. In the group you can continue to focus on how these “self-management strategies” can be used to help manage daily life.
