Cerebral Palsy Counselling

DisabilityPlus supports you with therapists who have Cerebral Palsy; this enables full cultural support. Our Cerebral Palsy Counselling is with therapists with the lived experience needed to understand the complexity of living with a genetic disorder. Our therapy supports you with mental & emotional health issues to allow you to have a brighter future.

Our Service supports people with mental health, whether pre-existing issues have worsened or a new condition that stems from cerebral palsy. Our specialist therapists understand the problems a genetic condition can have on a person’s mental & emotional health.

Mental Health

Most people with cerebral palsy do not have mental health problems. however, some people can realise that they are becoming depressed & anxious. Nevertheless, all people with cerebral palsy have problems with movement and posture. Some also have some intellectual disability, seizures, abnormal physical sensations or perceptions, and other medical disorders. People with CP also may have impaired vision or hearing, language, and speech problems. . People with CP who have some or more complexities may lead to more serious mental & emotional health conditions now or in the future.

 

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.”

Cerebral Palsy can affect how you live daily and how you see yourself and relate to others. You might feel hopeless about the future and not burden others with your feelings. These are typical responses; however, support, information, and effective counselling can help remove your feelings of dependence.

Severity

The emotional impact of CP can make you feel sad, frightened, confused, worried, angry, & overwhelmed. In severe cases, Personality Disorders, Addictions  & Suicidal Thoughts can come to the surface. However, our cerebral palsy counselling service with specialist therapists who have cerebral palsy can help you through your journey based on shared first-hand experiences.
