Psychological Counseling and Support
While the focus is often on the physical effects of illness and injury, a trauma, diagnosis or health condition can also affect you and your family emotionally and spiritually. Living well is about being healthy in mind, body and soul. Seeking emotional and spiritual help as well as physical is an important part of a complete recovery or coping strategy for patients and their families.
Psychological and emotional states can greatly affect your physical and medical conditions. Chronic stress and anxiety have a physiological component, which can hinder your body’s natural healing process.
