We are a specialist team of HCPC registered, psychologically informed physiotherapists, clinical psychologists and occupational therapists. We work collaboratively using a biopsychosocial model to help with the challenge that persistent pain presents.
We have training in contemporary pain neuroscience, and evidence based psychological therapies including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Compassion Focussed Therapy, Pain Reprocessing Therapy, and EMDR.
At Retraining Pain, we recognise that people with persistent pain often struggle with day to day activities, which can impact on the physical conditioning of the body. Specialist physiotherapists can assist with reconditioning the body to enable an individual to thrive. We really try to make movement both functional and fun, often by seeing people in their home environments.
Challenging thoughts, beliefs and emotions often come hand in hand with living with persistent pain. Clinical psychologists can help develop a shared understanding of how the problem started, how we think about pain, our illness beliefs, and help our clients develop strategies to manage and/or overcome these.
