How can psychology help with pain management, you may well ask?! Do they think the pain's in my mind?
As the field of pain has moved from a purely medical model to a bio-psycho-social approach, the role of psychologists has been vital in helping people come to terms with the impact of their pain and the losses it imposes. Being in constant pain is exhausting. It interferes with every aspect of our life and we often lose our sense of who we are. Relationships change, work becomes harder to carry out, we become less fit and mobile and well-being is elusive as we lose control and slip into the downward spiral of chronic pain.
Psychological therapy helps people deal with the anxiety, fear, low mood, anger, hopelessness, frustration and regain a sense of control over pain in particular and life in general. The psychologists and counsellors on our Team have a spectrum of therapies to offer, based on rigorous training. The models we offer include Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness, Relaxation, to name a few.
