For many, it can be incredibly difficult adjusting to life after an acquired brain injury. It’s not uncommon for those living with an injury to be also dealing with depression, anger or grief.

Psychotherapy for those with a brain injury

At Headway Essex, we are able to provide psychotherapy that has been carefully modified for those with an acquired brain injury.

We have adapted our psychotherapy services to compensate for any cognitive issues a person may have. For example, memory loss, or difficulties with information processing and attention.

Therapy with individuals
