Adjustment to disability or injury counselling
Many people find it difficult to adapt to a new injury, disability or illness.
As part of a rehabilitation program, we acknowledge that this adjustment takes time – whether it’s a temporary or permanent disability. Counselling helps us work through the impact disability can have on an individual’s:
- sense of identity
- home life
- leisure and sporting activities.
We look at unhelpful coping strategies such as avoidance, and being stuck in a stage of grief. Through therapy, we set goals to optimise rehabilitation outcomes.
Persistent pain resulting from an injury, disability or illness can have a huge impact on an individual’s recovery and return to work. Through education and strategies, we look at how pain can affect the success of a rehabilitation program.
We provide counselling to help workers understand and manage the impacts of pain, such as:
- over use of medication
- social withdrawal
- weight gain.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
We specialise in working with veterans, survivors of violence, emergency services personnel, and victims of natural disasters, to offer strategies and achieve tangible results for people suffering PTSD.
