Vestibular Disorder Counselling

DisabilityPlus supports you with therapists who have a Vestibular Disorder.

Our Vestibular Disorder Counselling Service is with therapists with the lived experience needed to understand the complexity of VD.

Our Service supports you, whether pre-existing issues have worsened or a new condition that stems from VD. Our specialist therapists understand the problems the multitude of difficulties can have on your mental & emotional health.

Mental Health

No matter how severe your vestibular disorder has become, you may experience emotional and behavioural changes resulting from your problems. These changes can include extreme mood swings and anxiety disorders.

Some people have a combination of emotional reactions to vestibular issues, they can include: insomnia, loss of appetite, palpitations, visual hallucinations, aggression, anger, tension, frustration, disorganisation, irritability, restlessness, and inability to concentrate & apathy.

 

“The secret to change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”

Thoughts & Fears

Living with a vestibular disorder affects a person’s life in many ways. Many things you used to be able to do easily are a struggle, or impossible. Going to the mall, grocery shopping, attending a play, visiting with family – these everyday activities are like mountains you have to climb. And because your symptoms are invisible, your friends, family and coworkers don’t understand, and may even question whether your symptoms are real.

The vestibular system is central to a person’s core functioning. A damaged or diseased vestibular system, therefore, affects not only how you feel, but how you are able to perform day-to-day activities. It’s easy to become overwhelmed and confused. 

Psychological Support

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

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

Carers

Those who take care of people with vestibular disorders 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.
