Hello! 

I’m conducting research to find out what are the most common/important things that I could support people in my community who have experienced a cardiac event as a therapist. I am thinking of a combination of one to one sessions to work on specific personal issues and also workshops, sort of support groups but with a purpose of sharing ideas and tools that ensure we get to make the most of our second shot at life.

I'd love to hear from you as this will help inform me of the best way to help others. I really do appreciate your input!      Many thanks!
