Long term conditions
Conditions such as chronic pain can have a massive impact on an individual’s everyday life. The ability to manage long term pain is a skill and one that can take people time to learn and develop. As psychologists with expertise in pain management, we help individuals learn how to manage their pain more effectively using core principles of cognitive behavioural therapy to improve overall quality of life. We offer one to one consultations starting with an initial assessment where we formulate a treatment plan with you. In addition we offer a more intense pain management programme which is run as a group and covers all evidence based components of pain and pain management.
Application of psychology in sports
How do athletes perform under pressure? What makes their mindset and performance a winning formula? The application of sports in psychology is an exciting and growing field! Many leading athletes and teams around the world engage in sport psychology to help with all levels from training and practice to motivation, goal setting, focusing the mind and performing in competitions. We can use a range of psychological techniques to help you set and achieve your goals within your chosen sport, at an individual or team level. We also apply psychological techniques in extreme sports, where the environment may play an important role, we can help formulate a winning mind set!
