Navigate the emotional aftermath of a heart attack/cardiac event

Ready to live your life again?

Following a heart attack or any other cardiac event, illness or operation, it can be common to have a range of emotions.

Thoughts and feelings ranging from stress to anxiety to anger to loss of confidence in your health, exercise or returning to daily life.

Regain control and embrace a healthier, calmer, happier future.

The doctors have told you to get back on with your life, but you can’t understand why you are finding it so tough. You seem to have lost some of your confidence and just feeling more stressed or anxious.

You expected to be feeling happy and focused on regaining your health and wellbeing, but you can’t shake the “What if’s”.  You just feel more worried about doing normal things like leaving the house, going back to work or  thinking about going on holiday.   You want the ‘old you’ back again.  

Recovering from a heart attack is not just about healing your body.  It is also dealing with the unique challenges that come with a significant life event so that you can get back on with life again.
