Counselling and Psychotherapy for People with Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury can cause sadness, depression, post traumatic stress disorder, anger and a need to adjust to your changes in life.
The counselling sessions will aim to reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, stress and post traumatic stress disorder and help you improve your coping skills. Josephine will help you process what happened, work through emotions, build resilience and self-worth.
During the sessions, Josephine will help you identify rehabilitation strategies and techniques to help you improve your quality of life and wellbeing. Rehabilitation strategies will also help you manage your behaviour and enhance memory capabilities. Rehabilitation can help prevent or delay the onset of dementia that is common in people who have had a traumatic brain injury.
You will be provided with support to help you remember any plans we have developed (if memory is impaired) within the sessions and together work on goals you would like to achieve.
Family therapy will also help the system of the family cope as the changes usually impacts the whole family not just one person.
