Loss of a limb or multiple limbs can have a significant psychological impact, and life with limb deficiency can present its own set of psychological as well as physical challenges. We take the psychological well-being of our patients as seriously as we take their physical health. If our patients could benefit from speaking to someone about their psychological health and any issues, whether directly related to their limb loss or otherwise, then our HCPC, BPS registered psychologists can provide a range of psychological services tailored to the individual’s needs.
Our psychologist specialises in trauma and limb loss and the service is especially tailored towards amputees and those with congenital limb absence. They are is used to dealing with issues such as feelings of grief or bereavement, PTSD, adjustment disorders, pain management including phantom limb pain and body image.
We can see you for an assessment at any time. This can be after or prior to you receiving or being prescribed your prostheses or as a stand alone service. We can also provide reports on cognitive capacity if relevant.
Following your assessment, we can recommend courses of psychological therapy tailored to your specific needs.
Therapy can be undertaken in one to one sessions or as part of a group and we also have a community support programme. It is sometimes also helpful to involve our patients’ families in their psychological therapy programme.
As with all of our multidisciplinary services, our psychology service is always accessible and a programme of therapy can be included in our patients aftercare package, or commenced at any time as required.
