Pain Psychology

Living with pain can be challenging and isolating. Particularly so, when it begins to limit your ability to live your life the way you did before. Our pain psychology services help you address the emotional, psychological and neuroplastic components of persistent pain. Our goal is to empower you with tools to, a) manage your pain more effectively, and b) reprogram, or rewire, the parts of the brain responsible for generating pain itself. Whether you're dealing with chronic pain, have experienced trauma, or are grappling with mental health concerns, pain psychology can serve as a valuable tool in your recovery.

Who's it for?

People with Chronic Pain

Living with chronic pain can be emotionally exhausting and challenging to manage. Our pain psychology service aims to help you reduce pain perception and enhance your overall quality of life.

Trauma Survivors

There is a profound connection between trauma and chronic pain. Our pain psychology approach assists trauma survivors in processing their experiences, thereby reducing the emotional impact these events have on their lives.

Individuals with Anxiety or Depression

Chronic pain can intensify pre-existing mental health conditions, such as anxiety and depression. Our pain psychology service supports these individuals in managing their symptoms and promoting overall mental well-being.

How it works?

Therapies & treatments

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a solution-focused approach that guides you in identifying and altering negative thought patterns and behaviors contributing to your pain. By making these changes, you can enhance your mood, decrease stress and anxiety, and strengthen your ability to cope with pain.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBTi)

Sleep disturbances are common among individuals experiencing chronic pain. CBTi is a tailored form of CBT that specifically addresses sleep-related issues in the context of chronic pain. By improving sleep quality and duration, you can reduce pain, boost your mood, and elevate your overall quality of life.

Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction

Mindfulness is a technique that encourages you to be fully present in each moment without judgment. By honing your focus on the here and now, you can alleviate stress and anxiety, improve your mood, and lessen your perception of pain.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a unique therapy designed to help you cope with trauma and PTSD. Utilizing eye movements and other methods, EMDR assists you in processing traumatic experiences and diminishing the emotional burden they have on your life.

Neuroplasticity Therapies

Neuroplasticity refers to your brain's capacity to adapt and change. Through specialized techniques like brain exercises and biofeedback, we can help you modify the way your brain perceives and reacts to pain. This, in turn, can lead to a decrease in pain perception and an enhanced overall quality of life.
