Recovering From An Injury
Have you recently suffered an injury? Or have you had an ongoing injury that you just can't seem to cope with? Do you feel powerless while you are waiting to get better?
I personally know the struggle of being injured and feeling powerless.I felt powerless over the time it took to heal, the limitations of my body, and the constant racing thoughts of, "Will I ever heal?"
This is a very difficult place to be and navigate. It can be difficult to adjust to life when you can no longer do the things you love or function the way you were before the injury.
You and I will begin to explore how the injury has impacted your life in all areas. We explore and identify coping skills to utilize while in recovery and for pain. We will challenge unhelpful styles of thinking that are getting in the way and identify how to use your strengths to improve your quality of life.
Some approaches I will utilize:
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
- Cognitive Behavior Therapy
- Relaxation Techniques
The therapeutic process will focus on regaining power over your injury and how to improve your quality of life after an injury when you feel like your life will never be the same.
