Support Workers

With long term health conditions and low mood/anxiety coming hand in hand, this CBT-based life skills course can help those affected learn that their life is more important than their illness.

These resources have been developed by Dr Chris Williams, a well-known and respected Psychiatrist and current President of the BABCP. The Reclaim Your Life course is based on an approach that is widely recommended across health and social care settings in the UK and overseas. Find out About the Author

As a Support Worker you can deliver the Reclaim Your Life course face to face as a group class, support your clients using our book and its associated worksheets, or provide your clients with online access to the course. The online course includes modules, online books, videos, worksheets and more.

We can visit your team locally to deliver training on how to implement the Reclaim Your Life resources in your service. Please get in touch at training@fiveareas.com to discuss or find out more here. We also run a number of workshops around the UK, view our upcoming events.
