Having previously worked as a pain psychologist in an NHS pain management service, I understand how frustrating, overwhelming and upsetting both acute and chronic pain conditions can be. Living with a pain condition can have a huge impact on your ability to do the things you enjoy, as well as on your relationships. The presence of pain can influence your work, sleep, exercise and finances, and this in turn can lead to feelings of low mood and anxiety and a diminished experience of quality of life.
Psychological therapy can help you manage your pain condition by developing a stronger mind-body connection, addressing thoughts and feelings that may be influencing your daily choices, calming physiological hyperarousal and reducing psychological distress associated with your pain.
