Talking openly

Talking openly about your concerns with the right person can be very beneficial.

Often this is not to get advice, but to share difficulties and worries and to clarify your thoughts by putting them into words. Views can sometimes change when you hear your thoughts aloud.

Friends and family can provide much of this support, but not for everyone. Whoever you choose, you must feel able to talk openly with them.

If you would prefer, any of our team (doctors, nurses, physio, OT, psychologist) will be happy to listen. This can be before, during or after a clinic or at some other time. All of these discussions are kept confidential.
