Counselling

The effects of a brain injury can be wide ranging and depend on factors such as the type, location and severity of the injury. Every person's injury is unique, and they may experience any number of the symptoms, ranging from mild to severe. Coping with brain injury can be a challenging process for the individual and their family and friends in both the short and longer term.

Emotional support can be important in helping survivors and their carers to adjust to the changes that have occurred and to deal with perhaps difficult or painful feelings. Sometimes just talking to one of our staff or someone who has been through a similar experience can be helpful. In other cases, survivors and/or their carers may need a greater degree of emotional support and that is where a trained counsellor with experience of working with people affected by a brain injury may be able to help.

Counselling can provide valuable and confidential support. Counselling provides a space where you can talk to someone about your concerns and emotional difficulties, someone trained and skilled in listening and helping you clarify your thoughts and feelings, which you may not be able to discuss with anyone else.

Headway Black Country offers a counselling service for survivors, their carers and close family members for a defined range of problems.

The types of problems suitable for this service are:

Counselling is provided by members of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy and is available either by self-referral or referral through another body for instance a GP. There is no charge currently; donations are invited.

If you would like to make a referral, please use this form.
