Meet Our Team Of Chronic Pain Psychiatrists

Overview

There are various aspects about being part of group therapy that help the patients with chronic pain enhance their well-being. One of these aspects is the supportive psychotherapy provided. During therapy, patients are encouraged to share their difficult and challenging experiences with other group members who also are going through similar experiences. They can talk about how the chronic pain has been impacting their work lives, their relationships with friends and family, and their leisure time and hobbies. Patients can also talk about the positive skills that they have learned and used, in terms of specific ways as well as attitudes that have helped them cope with their chronic pain and lead better lives. A group therapy modality lessens the patient’s isolation of suffering from chronic pain, allows them to brainstorm with others different methods that help reduce pain as well as cope with the consequences of chronic pain, and allows them the opportunity to help others rather than the only one getting helped.

How effective is Group Therapy for Chronic Pain?

Group therapy is effective for chronic pain by providing a space for sharing difficulties and challenges of living with chronic pain, reducing the sense of isolation among members, providing strategies that help reduce chronic pain as well as change the perception regarding it, and providing a space where group members can learn different methods of coping with and perceiving chronic pain from each other.

What are the benefits of Counselling for Chronic Pain?

Group therapy can be beneficial in reducing the patient’s sense of isolation, allowing them an opportunity to help other members which could be empowering rather than the only one being helped, allowing them to expand their support network and problem-solve with others ways to cope with the pain and deal with its consequences.

How many numbers of sessions are required?

The number of sessions required depends on the amount of support that the person with chronic pain requires and can differ from person-to-person.
