Health & Disability

People commonly experience mental health and psychological problems as a result of a physical health problem. In addition, specific beliefs about illness (e.g., causes, consequences, treatment, prognosis) can impact upon a individuals physical and mental state. I can provide guidance on how to develop effective coping strategies. I have worked with many people experiencing serious and on-going health problems. Examples of medical issues I have helped people with include:

  • Neurodevelopmental diagnoses (e.g., Intellectual Disability)
  • Acquired brain injury (e.g., stroke, damage caused by accident)
  • Cancer
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Physical disability and loss of physical function
  • Chronic pain
