Our small groups shared their experiences of anxiety and low mood with stress management counsellor Julie. Some spoke of negative thoughts disturbing their sleep and discussed relaxation techniques and other practical solutions. The latest Stroke Statistics from the Stroke Association state around a third of stroke survivors experience depression after stroke and ½ of stroke survivors experience symptoms of anxiety at some point in the 10 years after their stroke.
