Specialist Neuro PsychotherapyAbout the Neurological Psychotherapy Service
Do you have a neurological condition or illness?
Have you suffered a head injury or brain injury?
Alternatively are you a carer looking after your loved one who has?
Have you found it difficult to find someone to talk about issues arising from you or your partners situation?
I provide a specialist neuro-psychotherapy service concentrating on the psychological effects to individuals following an acquired brain injury or neurological condition. And I also provide support for members of the family affected by their relatives injury and the changes in role that may accompany it.
The Psychological effects of suffering a brain injury is an area in which I have developed a particular interest based on my previous experience in that field.
Counselling and Psychotherapy can provide support at each stage of recovery and rehabilitation. It can offer emotional support and understanding of the difficulties of:
With support and guidance people can be helped with the changes of present roles and relationships and re-appraise their situation and face the uncertainty of the future and to be supported to explore new possibilities and direction.
Relatives and carers also need support in their difficult and demanding position and a space to explore their feelings around the changes in their loved one or the complicated feelings arising from stress in their role as carer.
I liaise with various organisations who work with people with traumatic brain injuries and promote awareness around service provision.
