Chronic Pain Management

Chronic pain is pain that persists either because of an ongoing condition such as rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, a chronic condition, or pain that continues even after the injury has healed.

It can make daily life very difficult and cause feelings, such as hopelessness, despair and even depression.

Chronic pain can be lonely!

People with chronic pain conditions often feel that their journey is a lonely one.  We understand that you may feel tired of complaining, of burdening your loved ones or of the profound impact this is having on your daily life, such as seeing friends, working or enjoying hobbies you used to love. You don’t have to be alone.

Psychological support for chronic pain conditions

How can psychology help chronic pain? You might ask. Psychological counselling can help in a number of ways – it may help with the perception of pain so that it is not so much in the forefront of your mind or you may experience it less intensely.

Psychologists are also skilled at teaching relaxation techniques, such as mindfulness.  As you probably know, stress and anxiety often increase pain.

Furthermore, psychology provides support in a difficult time and therapy for all the other aspects of your life that may be affected by your chronic pain.
