Counselling and Psychology
Whether you’ve had a brain injury, or are a family member, you may find it helpful to talk to a counsellor or psychologist, to come to terms with life after a brain injury. Also, if you have a brain injury, specialist psychologists called neuropsychologists, can assist you to identify your strengths and work on problems in thinking, remembering, behaviour and mood.Your consultant or GP can refer you, or you can refer yourself. Ask if your hospital has a psychologist.
