Our Disability Counselling Service is the award-winning sister company of Deaf4Deaf Counselling & Psychotherapy. We formed our new service to support the wider demographic of people with quality psychological therapies wherever they may live.
Our team offers those affected by disabilities a unique opportunity to work with counsellors who have a personal insight to provide understanding & recognition with specialist therapy.
A disability can be any physical, cognitive, sensory, emotional, or developmental condition that hampers or reduces your ability to carry out everyday tasks. In some cases, you may have a combination of injuries and disabilities; because we are specialists, we can support you no matter what the disability or injury.
Counselling can help address these issues, help you cope better with the disability, and adapt to the changes it brings. A trusted professional will be there to help you explore ways of making these more manageable. Sometimes there is a misconception that counselling is advice-giving, but this is not the case.
“The aim of disability counselling is to provide a safe and supportive space for you to discuss your concerns and fears”
Supporting someone with a disability or significant injury is not as straightforward as supporting a generalised person with depression & anxieties. Many therapists do not have the experience; they may have never supported a disabled person or understood how you feel.
The therapist who supports you will understand how your disability creates change within your life. The emotional can be significant, whether the disability is due to a severe illness or a sudden traumatic injury.
Disability Counselling, how?
Our Disability Counselling Service is predominantly. delivered online using our HIPPA-compliant video systems that are fully secured and confidential.
We do offer face-to-face counselling depending on where you live and the proximity of the counsellor. The online solution allows us to bring together the specialists that would be hard to find.
Disability Counselling will help you understand why you do things in the way you do; counselling will help you uncover distorted or unhealthy thinking patterns.
