About Suffolk Wellbeing
Lots of people struggle at times in life. Living Life to the Full teaches a range of life skills that are based on the tried and trusted CBT approach, to aim to improve wellbeing and resilience as you go through the journey of life.
Life is a journey, sometimes its blue sky and sunshine, admiring the view from the peaks. Whereas sometimes it seems far harder, a struggle which feels constantly as if we’re going uphill with storms, it can feel lonely and cold.
However you’re feeling, this site aims to help provide useful information and resources that can act as tools to use on your own life journey.

Getting support as you learn
If you’re feeling stressed or low it can be especially hard to feel motivated and organised enough to plan change. Ipwich Wellbeing therefore offers free automated weekly emails to remind and help motivate your use of the course. We also offer an option for a coach or supporter to work with you as you learn, to help you stay on track. Please note no one will have sight of your personal data unless you consent and request them to form a personal support relationship with you.
