Chronic Pain Counselling

DisabilityPlus supports you with therapists who have chronic pain; this enables full cultural support. Our Chronic Pain Counselling is with therapists with the lived experience needed to understand the complexity of chronic pain. 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 chronic pain. Our specialist therapists understand the problems severe daily pain can have on a person’s mental & emotional health.

Mental Health

Most people with chronic pain do not have mental health problems. However, some people can realise that they are becoming depressed & anxious. The symptoms often pass; however, they may lead to more serious mental & emotional health conditions in the future.

If you’re contemplating chronic pain counselling, we offer different modes of counselling, including cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) or acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). These modes of regular pain counselling may not only get relief from your chronic pain, but you may find that you feel generally more content with your life as well.

 

“Chronic Pain is the worst. Some days, of course, it’s worse than others, but for the days that it’s terrible, a little bit of understanding goes a long way”

Supporting you

Psychological pain is a big part of chronic pain, including anxiety about current and potential discomfort, insomnia, depression, suicidal thoughts, and grief. It is essential to know that this is all normal. It’s also necessary to make sure you address these feelings. Because chronic pain is very complex—it includes biological, psychological, and emotional components—all of these factors must be managed to treat your pain effectively.

Strategies

Psychotherapy, in particular, as part of a pain management plan, can help you with any thoughts, feelings, and behaviours related to their chronic pain; for example, inactive individuals may find their pain increasing because they are deconditioned.

 

Psychological Support

We can support you with your emotional & mental health, our therapists work with people who have varying degrees of chronic pain. The therapy focuses on assisting you to overcome various psychological barriers.

Our team understands that living with chronic pain can be difficult, but we know it can be manageable. Our treatment plans focus on helping you think more clearly & gain a purpose.
