if you’ve had Long Covid, like me, you’ll know about the overwhelming tiredness, the headaches, lack of sleep, panic attacks and many other symptoms, that can seem unexpected, that come with this virus. It isn’t a 12 week experience for many.
This is a fully funded online and face-to-face peer support programme for people in Lancashire with Long Covid. It is designed to help you manage your symptoms more effectively. Learn to listen to your body, slow down and accept your recovery journey.
-Attend peer support groups online from the comfort of your home.
-Attend face-to-face support groups once a month in Accrington, Clitheroe and Bamber Bridge .
Brain Health Breakthrough CIC are experts by experience and specialise in facilitating peer-support groups. The benefits of peer-support include being around people who understand you, and your situation.
People who attend our groups have found the experiences of others who’ve also had Long Covid, very useful, in addition to the various physical and emotional benefits.

Alongside having experienced Covid 19, and knowing first-hand how it side-swipes you, your life and the ‘normal’ you, I have various other qualifications.
In my 20 years of experience in work, I’ve spent five years designing and running meditation groups, I’ve also been a therapist and worked in education for adult health and social care.
I set up the CIC, Brain Health Breakthrough, in 2018 and work as tirelessly as I can to help people who’ve had a brain injury enjoy life. Sometimes that’s with work experience, sometimes that’s coping with the impact a brain injury has.
I extended this work to help unpaid carers as they also experience issues that meditation can successfully treat. During this time I contracted Covid, and have been investigating how to manage this ever since; honing the meditations and approach to create the 8 week course you see here.

You might be surprised to know..
I have a BA Hons in Education and Professional Development – in terms of why that is relevant, I know about the best ways to learn and teach.
I’m also pretty savvy and results-focused. This is about impact and results for me, not something ‘nice and fluffy’ – it has to work.
