miu Patients - Healios

Experience Healios

We provide the support you need to develop and implement healthier behaviors – with an approach specifically catered to you – so you can achieve your goals and regain your potential.

How it Works

Step 1: Enrolment

A member of the Healios team will speak with you over the phone to understand your situation and eligibility for our service and if the service is covered by the NHS in your area. We’ll then set up your log-in information and book your first appointment with a clinician matched specifically to your needs.

Step 2: Your First Session

Our clinician, matched specifically to your needs, will clarify your situation, goals and any roadblocks that are getting in your way. Together, we will make a plan to overcome any challenges you’re facing so you can take steps forward to achieving your goals. Your clinician is your partner throughout your journey with Healios and will be with you every step of the way.

Step 3: On-going Coaching and Support

Each session, your clinician will work with you to understand which new techniques can give you skills and confidence to move forward. Over several sessions, your clinician will continue to support and coach you to make these new skills work for you. All of the techniques you’ve learned will appear in your private MyHealios area, available whenever you need them.

Step 4: Moving Forward After Healios

With new skills and increased confidence, you’ll be better equipped to reach your goals. If you face new challenges and would like further support from Healios, just contact us again and we’ll pick up where we left off.

Anxiety

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a therapy which aims to bring down your anxiety levels and improve your quality of life. At Healios we offer CBT therapy online to you and your family. We aim to give you information about anxiety and skills for you and your family to use to help you feel less anxious. We cover a range of anxiety types such as social anxiety, separation anxiety, specific phobias, panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder and generalised anxiety disorder.

Eating Disorders

At Healios, we offer a combination of family based therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy to you and your family so you have the knowledge and skills to achieve a healthy weight and improve your quality of life. We cover the different types of eating disorders: anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and atypical.

Adult Mental Illness

Psychosis

Experiencing psychotic symptoms can be confusing and scary. Healios works with you and your family (or carer) so you understand more about what’s happening, and how to work on coping together.

Schizophrenia

Living with Schizophrenia brings a range of feelings and uncertainties, and planning for the future may seem difficult. With Healios, and involving your family (or carer), we help you tailor your support network, develop skills to manage your symptoms and plan for a better future.

Bipolar

Managing extreme mood swings can be exhausting and lead to serious difficulties, and can leave you feeling out of control. Healios works with you and your family (or carer) to better understand ways of reducing mood swings and maintaining a more balanced and healthy lifestyle.

Anxiety

Some people may think that anxiety is not a big deal, but feeling on-edge or unable to do certain things day-in and day-out is huge. With Healios, you and your family (or carer) are supported to explore strategies in small, managed chunks to help you overcome these limitations.

Depression

The burden of depression can become overwhelming. Feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, lack of energy and others can make life feel intolerable. Healios works at your pace, including your family (or carer), to help you to take small steps toward experiencing things in a new way.

PTSD

Whatever you have experienced, and however PTSD has affected you, Healios will walk with you and your family (or carer) toward understanding a different way to cope.

Adjustment Disorder

Although not often diagnosed, adjustment disorder can arise from a wide range of experiences and life changes. Healios helps you and your family (or carer) understand the time-limited nature of this disorder and explore options on how you can manage the situation.

Physical Conditions

Diabetes

Moving to insulin can feel daunting, and you might feel anxious and uncertain about how to self-manage your injections at home. Healios helps you to understand insulin and the importance of having the correct injection techniques, so you are able to self-manage effectively and with confidence.
