Clinical Psychology in Queen Square
The diagnosis of a neurological condition can often affect many aspects of a patient’s life, as well as that of those around them.
Psychological care is a highly effective tool in assisting patients in coping with their diagnosis and the physical and emotional side effects of their condition.
What can a patient expect?
Our specialist psychologists are trained to help patients cope with the emotional side effects of neurological disease, providing information, support and practical help in managing all aspects of life.
Based on an initial assessment, where the specialist will consider a patient’s thoughts, behavioural changes, bodily changes and feelings, they may then offer a range of therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based therapy, systemic therapy and narrative therapy. These sessions are fully tailored to the individual, ensuring that the support is appropriate and effective.
Therapy sessions may be offered to the individual, but may also be for a couple or on a group therapy basis.
I really cannot thank you enough for the enormous kindness you and your staff showed me when I came in for my MRI last week. I was extremely nervous, having panicked during an MRI scan before at another hospital. However, your staff put me at ease from the first moment I stepped foot in your department. I have now had my MRI done, and can go back to see my consultant with all of the information he needs. Thank you.
