Arthritus Counselling

DisabilityPlus empowers you with arthritis counselling with therapists who understand what you may be going through. Your therapist supports you with your mental health, whether pre-existing issues have become worse or a new condition that stems from arthritis.

Anxiety is often perceived as expected; people don’t always seek mental health services for it. Left untreated, stress can lead to more significant problems. Chronic anxiety can increase someone’s risk of developing depression. Arthritis, anxiety, and depression can negatively affect overall health and quality of life.

Feelings of sadness or worry can interfere with a person’s ability and motivation to care for themselves properly and manage daily life, let alone manage their arthritis or other health conditions. That’s why it’s essential for people with arthritis to take care of their mental health and arthritis symptoms.


Nobody can take away your pain, but don’t let pain take away your happiness”

Fighting the pain of a long-term health problem can be a significant burden to carry. The rate of depression among people living with rheumatoid arthritis is estimated to be upwards of 40% percent of people with RA. Pain is one factor, but we know from people we see that there is more depression and anxiety in people with RA even before the RA is diagnosed.

Arthritis Counselling with a therapist who understands the symptoms and effects on your life can help you cope with the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that accompany chronic pain.
