Healthy Ambitions

43% of Scottish women live with chronic pain; 9% more than their UK counterparts. One third of these are less able to maintain an independent lifestyle due to their pain, placing a substantial burden on individuals, families, healthcare systems, and society.

Chronic pain negatively impacts health, lifestyle and career choices, personal relationships, and self-esteem. We need a fundamental re-think in how we support people living with chronic pain through far-reaching solutions. Healthy Ambitions offers a new perspective: integrating theory, evidence-based therapies, and clinical experience. Our person-centred, compassion-focused approach supports the nervous system first to create possibilities for long-lasting change.
