Psychological Support for
Long Term Health Conditions
Following my own diagnosis of MS (Multiple Sclerosis) and experiencing the difficulties both physically and mentally, I began to integrate psychological support for individuals with long-term health conditions (LTHC) into my practice.
Following a diagnosis you may feel a mixture of emotions such as loss, uncertainty of the future and confusion around the changes that you may need to make in your life. Research has shown that individuals with a LTHC are 2-3 times more likely to suffer with mental health issues than the general population, highlighting the importance of accessing support (Naylor et al. 2012).
Tailored individual support for your needs includes:
A safe confidential space
Compassionate focused approaches
Integration of positive psychology
Chartered Psychologist with a lived experience of a LTHC
FREE course on using Acceptance an Commitment Therapy for individuals living with MS
