What is Concussion
The most common and least serious type of traumatic brain injury is a concussion. The brain’s soft tissue supported by spinal fluid encased in the protective shell of the skull can be damaged by the trauma jolting the brain. Traumatic brain injuries can cause bruising, damage to the blood vessels and nerves. The concussion restricts the brain to function as it should; signs may not appear for days or weeks after the injury.
Quality of life
Mood regulation issues are common in people with concussions; symptoms such, irritability, mood swings, apathy & inconsistent sleep can be evident following head trauma.
During therapy, a trained head injury counsellor listens to you and helps you find solutions. It’s an opportunity to look at your problems in a different way with someone who’ll respect you and your opinions. Concussion counselling can make a difference; the aim is to support you with the emotional and mental health effects consequence of the head injury.
Our therapy can help you set goals to work towards, particularly during the initial stages. We know that goals & aspirations should be meaningful to your life and attainable and realistic. Our therapists will help develop such plans by setting achievable targets at each counselling stage. Goals often provide a sense of purpose structure (daily routine) and improve confidence and self-esteem.
Family & Carers
Those who take care of people with a head injury can also benefit from counselling. Making sacrifices to care for a loved one can lead to feelings of anxiety, stress, depression, and isolation. Counselling can provide helpful guidance and support on coping in the best way possible.
