The Link Between Physical Health & Mental Wellbeing
In our pursuit of overall health and wellness, the connection between mental and physical health is crucial. Living with an acute or long-term physical health condition can take a toll on our wellbeing, leading to distress or burnout. Whether you are living with cancer, chronic fatigue, diabetes, long COVID, neurological issues or a cardiac condition, at Angsana Psychology, we offer therapy for physical health conditions in Norwich to help bridge the gap between physical and mental health, with support available for adults, children and families.
Therapy for Physical Health Conditions
Psychotherapy isn’t just for addressing emotional or psychological issues – it can also be a valuable tool in managing long term physical health conditions. Here are some ways in which therapy can benefit individuals living with physical health challenges:
Coping Strategies: Managing a physical health condition can be emotionally demanding, and in some cases lead to distress or even burnout. Therapy provides a safe space to develop coping strategies and emotional resilience to navigate the challenges effectively.
Stress Management: Chronic stress can exacerbate physical health problems, weakening the immune system, and disrupting sleep patterns. Therapy equips individuals with techniques to manage stress, improving overall wellbeing.
Behavioural Changes: Many physical health conditions require lifestyle modifications. Our experienced psychologist in Norwich, Dr Jinnie Ooi, can work with clients to set meaningful goals.
Pain Management: Chronic pain can have a profound impact on mental health. Therapy can help individuals develop strategies for pain management, reducing suffering and improving their quality of life.
Support and Validation: Living with a physical health condition can sometimes feel isolating. Therapy provides a supportive environment where clients can express their concerns and emotions without judgment.
