How may therapy help?

Living with a chronic illness affects more than just your physical health.  It can brings with it a whole host of psychological challenges. For example, grief for the life you once had or a feeling of being trapped in your body.  Furthermore, many sufferers describe having experienced negative reactions or misunderstandings from people.  Psychotherapy is a place where you may begin to explore some of these issues. 

The very nature of chronic illness often results in a reduced social life, and therefore may lead to a feeling of isolation.  For this reason, I am in the process of setting up a low cost therapy/support group.  The group will offer a safe space to discuss your experiences, in the company of those who may be going through something similar. 

To arrange a free initial consultation, or find out more information on any of the services I offer, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Psychotherapy

I offer individual, short or long term, counselling and psychotherapy.  I aim to be as flexible as possible to accommodate your specific health condition. 

Support Groups

The group will consist of between 4 - 8 people, and shall run for 10 weeks at a time. 

Local Talks

Occasionally, I hold free talks on the subject of how you may psychologically support yourself whilst living with a health condition.
