The CF psychology service assesses and supports people with psychological difficulties of all types and levels of severity.
We also offer support to family members and partners of people with CF.
It can be daunting meeting a psychologist for the first time and not knowing exactly what to expect. This is a normal anxiety. However, meeting with a psychologist doesn’t have to be scary. Sessions tend to last for 50 minutes, but can be shorter if required. Things are taken at your pace and we work together to help you reach your goals. These could be things such as improving your mood and motivation to do things, feeling less anxious about the future or medical treatments, issues around weight or fertility, or learning ways to deal with stress, and many more.
If you feel you would benefit from speaking to a psychologist, even if it’s for a more informal chat to see if it’s right for you, then you can speak to anyone in the team who can refer you, or you can refer yourself by calling the numbers below.
