Care Giver Counselling for a Terminally Ill person (Cancer)

Supporting a terminally ill or chronically ill loved one is not the easiest task. One may often not know how to react when we first find out about it. There may be quite a few distressing feelings that the caregiver may feel, such as guilt, anger, depression, anxiety, burnout, etc. Dealing with these tough emotions along with the impending doom of losing a loved one, or seeing them suffer, often takes a toll on the Care Givers Psyche and Mental Well Being.

 

How Can We Help With Caregiver Counselling?

Our Expert Counselors will help you in various aspects of leading a healthy emotional and mental state, while being able to give care to a loved one. So, for example, they will help you come to terms to the diagnoses made.  When this happens, caregivers often feel that time stands still, priorities change, hopes for the future are gone, and life may even lose its meaning for a while. At this stage, the emotions such as anger, sadness, guilt, blame may be quite distressing. Our Psychologists will help you cope with these unhealthy negative emotions, and with the help of online counselling teach you various emotional and behavioral techniques. They will also help you to deal with caregiver burnout and stress that accumulates after a long time of continuous care giving in difficult conditions.   By the end of the sessions you will be better equipped to cope with your own feelings so that you can effectively give care to your loved one who needs it.

Counselling for Chronic Pain – chronic pain management: 

Chronic pain is any pain that lasts for longer than six months. It stands in contrast to acute pain, which is short-lived pain that often has a clear medical cause. Muscle aches such as back and neck pain are common sources of chronic pain, but the pain can occur anywhere in the body and can range from a mild irritation to a severely debilitating condition. Because chronic pain can affect one’s mental health often quite severely, chronic pain can often develop as a result of a mental health condition, and it is a more common symptom of psychological concerns than many people may realize. Chronic pain and depression are also often closely related: the stress of living with chronic pain can often lead to depression, and because some people may manifest depression in the form of physical symptoms instead of psychological ones, depression can also result in chronic pain.
