“Psychologists & Psychotherapists with Spinal Cord Injuries Support individuals & Caregivers with Spinal Cord Injury Counselling”

A Spinal Cord Injury can have a devastating effect on your life; the extent of disability depends on where along the spinal cord the injury occurs and the severity of the damage.

Our Psychologists with stage 1 & 2 injuries have extensive knowledge through lived experiences, they know how you feel and the challenges you are facing.

Living with an SCI can be overwhelming and lead to people experiencing many complex emotions.

So, if you’re struggling right now, please get in touch with us.

Talking to someone outside your family or circle of friends may help you better understand your feelings and manage them more effectively.

Relationship

One of the most important aspects of counselling & psychotherapy is the relationship you form with your therapist. 

You may have experienced trauma and lived with negative and debilitating thoughts and emotions.

“Therapists with Brittle Bones or a Simaler Disability Support Individuals & Caregivers with Specialist Cerebral Palsy Counselling”

The quality of life for people with brittle bone disease is impaired from an early age in relation to their health condition. This includes the impact of multiple hospital admissions and severe pain on mental health, not only for themselves but for those who care for them. Whilst some treatments are offered, there is currently no cure for the disease, which may add to low self-esteem and anxiety, depression, the feeling of being isolated and fear of early death.

Therefore considering the mental health and well-being of people with osteogenesis imperfecta need to be considered and assistance provided to help them and their families to cope with both the physical and emotional aspects of the disease. Therapies include how to develop skills for coping with the stress and anxiety inherent in living with life-long chronic health issues.

We support you with your mental health, whether pre-existing issues have worsened or a new condition that stems from living with Brittle Bones. Our specialist therapists understand the problems a life-long condition can have on your mental & emotional health.
