Managing fatigue after brain injury
An online group
Managing Fatigue after Brain Injury
This group is for adults experiencing fatigue after brain injury. The group consists of 5 weekly sessions and one additional follow-up session after a month.
Facilitated by our occupational therapist, Alison Hipkiss, we will discuss what fatigue is, how to recognise fatigue and triggers, and explore ways to help you manage it. Weekly tasks are set to help you apply the information from the sessions to your own life.

What are online groups and who are they for?
Cognivate’s online groups are another part of our approach to unlocking lives after brain injury – using video calls to bring neurorehab into your front room. Each of our groups has been carefully designed to focus on particular topics or activities which may be important to someone whose life has been affected by brain injury.
All the groups are small, with no more than 8 people so that everyone can see each other on their screen and has an opportunity to chat, ask questions, and get to know each other. Some groups are for everyone – for example our ‘Understanding Brain Injury’ group. Others focus on specific issues which may have arisen for some people but not others. Attendance is free.
Why join an online group?
Group discussions and activities are a great way of exploring issues, sharing solutions to problems, and practising techniques. Online groups enable our therapists to bring people facing similar challenges together, wherever they live.
Our groups aim to help those who have been affected by brain injury to:
- make sense of what has happened to them
- talk about their experiences and compare notes
- access expert advice from qualified therapists
- try out exercises and strategies
- and most of all, support each other.
