Treatment of Individuals with Acute or Chronic Illness
FOR INDIVIDUALS COPING WITH ILLNESS
I have a Certificate in Health Psychology and have expertise
in working with clients with a wide range of health conditions and illnesses.
I help clients understand the mind-body connection: both how their illness
may be causing anxiety or depression, and how emotional issues that they
have may be contributing to their health condition.
I use a number of techniques in addition to talk therapy, such as Hypnosis,
Guided Imagery, and Relaxation Training to help my clients regain feelings
of harmony within their bodies and in their lives.
I have worked with individuals with Gastro-intestinal disorders, Chronic
pain, Asthma, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Migraines, TMJ,
Cancer, AIDS, Heart Disease, Stroke, Head Injury, Cystic Fibrosis, Multiple
Sclerosis, Diabetes, and many other illnesses.
