Our health psychology service specialises in supporting patients and their families and/or carers cope with the short and long term impact of having a haematological disorder, including inherited conditions such as sickle cell disease and haemophilia.
We want to help our patients understand the factors that cause, maintain and worsen their distress, and to help them take control of their situation through psychological interventions such as cognitive behavioural therapy.
In addition to offering individual therapy, our health psychologists:
- offer support group sessions for patients and their families and/or carers, plus staff groups
- contribute to team meetings, seminars, teaching and training
- attend ward rounds
