Individuals who sustain physical and psychological injuries are frequently challenged by the changes that can develop following an accident, whether that be at work or not. Usual life coping resources may be stretched, returning to function and work may be a lot slower than expected and this can impact not only on one’s sense of self, but relationships, social participation, capacity to return to work and meaningful life roles, while also maintaining a sense of dignity and purpose. Thomas has extensive experience providing treatment to individuals in these situations who may present with :
- Adjustment to disability issues
- Chronic Pain
- Anxiety & Phobias
- Post Traumatic Stress
