Health Therapy

Health Psychologist at Kensington Psychology and Well-Being

Health psychology is a specialist field in psychology that focuses on the interplay between our thoughts and our general well-being.  This is especially relevant to chronic conditions such as chronic pain or chronic fatigue. A health psychologist is also well trained in assisting those dealing with cancer, undergoing physical rehabilitation, addiction treatment, or struggling with eating disorders.


Our thoughts influence our health.  We know that chronic stress contributes to a myriad of illnesses such as IBS and other gut issues, cardiovascular events, impaired immune system, and so on. In fact, one of the most exciting developments is the emerging evidence on gut-brain health. It stands to reason that the old adage might well be very true – healthy body, healthy mind.

Well-being means more than just the absence of a disease or disorder; it also means having the resources to cope with problems and circumstances beyond your control and recover from difficult or troubling situations. A health psychologist can help by teaching coping mechanisms, stress management, thinking differently about physical struggles and pain, and helping to foster greater resilience in general. This can have a tremendous impact on quality of life in many other spheres of life.
