Vestibular Disorder Counselling

Expertise – Our Specialist Psychotherapist delivers Vestibular Disorder Counselling. The Therapist works with people who have Mental Health issues concerning sudden severe migraines, vertigo (spinning/swaying sensation), dizziness, balance problems, nausea and vomiting.

Our Psychotherapist is one of a limited number of specialist mental health practitioners who works with individuals who have vestibular disorders.

Options – Rehabilitation Therapy is the first step for many people with Vestibular Issues; we would always support this mode as one of the first steps to recovery. Sometimes, however, the success of this Therapy should be complemented by Mental Health Counselling. This is because anxiety is causing additional stress, which interferes with the brain’s re-calibration. Excessive worrying can also magnify symptoms

Healthcare – In our experience with people who have asked for mental health support, depression has been a critical factor that prevented some people from taking their medications correctly or keeping their healthcare appointments. People with depression are less likely to complete exercises and perform self-care at home as instructed.

Vestibular Disorder Counselling

Counselling – The Vestibular System is a complex sensory organism responsible for balance, equilibrium and telling our bodies where and how fast we are moving relative to gravity.  Our Qualified Therapist helps individuals learn healthy coping skills; these skills help clients navigate life. Vestibular Disorder Counselling can help people avoid potential additional issues such as panic attacks, health, social & generalised anxiety, dissociation and, with severe cases, substance abuse, self-harm & suicidal thoughts.

Expectations from Counselling – When working with our Vestibular Disorder Therapist, you can expect to discuss your physical and emotional health. The therapist will ask about the symptoms you experience, where and when it occurs, and what factors may affect it. In addition, the therapist will ask you to discuss any worries or stresses, including those associated with your symptoms.

Common Vestibular Disorder Counselling Questions?

Why Vestibular Disorder Counselling?

Vestibular Disorder Counselling be a better option than psychotherapy if:

  • You have specific issues or short term problems you wish to address

  • You wish to learn coping skills to help better manage stress and improve relationships

  • You are coping with life transitions and adjustments

  • You are looking for someone who is essentially a “coach” who can guide and support you as you learn to recognise problems and formulate healthy solutions yourself

Vestibular Disorder Counselling is a short term treatment plan that will last between 6 weeks & 6 months. Clients will receive a Qualified BACP Registered Counsellor who works with individuals who require Vestibular Disorder Counselling.

The Counselling focuses on the present problem and situation of living with Vestibular Disorder. The counsellor will work with the individual giving guidance, support, and education to help identify and find their own solutions.

Why Vestibular Disorder Psychotherapy

A psychotherapist may be a better option than Vestibular Disorder Counselling if:

  • You have problems that are significantly impacting your life and relationships.
  • You are coping with past trauma, or if you believe situations in the past may be playing a role in your current issues
  • Your present issues are chronic or recurring concerns
  • You have a chronic medical condition that is affecting your emotional well-being
  • You have a diagnosed mental health condition such as severe depression, mood or anxiety disorder
  • You have seen a counsellor, and your issues aren’t improving even though you’ve been actively working on solutions

Psychotherapy addresses the root cause and core issues of current problems so that lasting change and personal growth may occur. Clients will work with an Accredited Psychotherapist who will deliver Vestibular Disorder Counselling. 

Psychotherapy is a longer-term treatment that focuses more on gaining insight into chronic physical and emotional problems. Its focus is on the person’s thought processes and how these may be influenced by past events in conjunction with the trauma that caused problems in the present. 

  • Focus on chronic or recurrent problems
  • Overall patterns, big picture-oriented
  • Long term therapy, either continuous or intermittent over a longer period
  • Feeling and experience focused
  • May include testing such as personality, intelligence
  • In-depth focus on internal thoughts/feelings (core issues) leading to personal growth

What is Relationship Counselling?

Our counsellors provide a caring, supportive and non-judgmental environment to help you find a way through the effects of vestibular disease on your relationship as a couple.

Together we will first help you to identify the issues or problems you are facing in your relationship.

If you decide couple counselling (couples or friends) is the way forward for both of you, you will embark on a series of short-term counselling sessions – anything between six and twelve sessions is normal, but it will depend on the issues you are experiencing.

For some couples,  counselling is the start of a long process of discovery while for others, a few sessions of counselling may be all they need to move through a rough patch. You will be able to discuss your expectations with your counsellor.

Counselling Methodologies

SoundMind-UK team can offer differing methodologies of  Vestibular Syndrome Counselling & Psychotherapies from the outset.

Pros of paying privately for Vestibular Syndrome Counselling

Get help almost immediately

Develop a closer more personal relationship with your therapist as there is no no limit on amount of sessions you require.

The NHS has a very ‘ one in one out’ style of working whereas it feels a lot more personal when you go to private sessions.

Going private means clients can choose different treatments.

Choosing to see a therapist privately gives clients greater separation from the rest of their life. Although services are available through GPs and NHS-funded mental health services, many people are worried about perceived mental health difficulties appearing on their medical records.

Counselling Paid by the NHS

SoundMind-UK can apply for NHS funded sessions for you. Sessions are free, this is the biggest advantage of the NHS funding. No application can be guaranteed to be successful. 

Between time of application & approval can be 12 weeks or more. There are some regions within the UK that will not fund specialist services

Services that ask us for support includes:

  • Solicitors
  • Lawyers
  • Courts
  • Employers
  • Educational establishments (colleges, universities etc)
