Headway Essex

Providing Brain Injury Care & Support

Headway Essex Specialist Psychotherapy Service


When you have had a brain injury or care for someone with a brain injury, sometimes things can seem too much to deal with and you may start to suffer with emotional distress.


Examples of the sorts of problems you might be dealing with are:



Modified psychotherapy following brain injury


Psychotherapy has its place in helping to alleviate psychological distress following acquired brain injury, but given the cognitive changes in functions like memory, information processing, attention and thinking skills that take place following acquired brain injury then a different approach needs to be taken from conventional psychotherapy and one which compensates for these cognitive difficulties.
