What’s involved in your rehab at Royal Rehab LifeWorks Cairns?

Quality of life icon

Your Psychologist will start by conducting a thorough assessment. Using various techniques and tests, they'll work with you to understand mental health state. Together, they’’ll develop a personalised therapy plan aimed at managing your condition.

Training icon

Your Psychologist might suggest one-on-one individual therapy. This includes setting goals and learning to manage symptoms or triggers, all aimed at supporting you to live a healthier life. They might also recommend group therapy. This involves a counsellor leading sessions with a group of clients focused solving specific issues or boosting social skills. Being part of a group allows you to get support and encouragement from others.

Communication skills icon

Your Psychologist will use different methods to help you better manage your feelings and emotions. Additionally, they may arrange educational sessions to help you understand how your mind, body, and actions all connect with each other.

Cognitive behavioural therapy icon

Your Psychologist might suggest cognitive behavioural therapy tailored to address your specific needs, such as managing stress, anxiety, or pain. This therapy could involve setting goals, learning breathing techniques, practicing visualisation, and mindfulness exercises. Its aim is to reduce emotional distress and help overcome self-defeating behaviours.

Fatigue icon

If needed, your Psychologist can incorporate strategies into your therapy plan to address fatigue and insomnia. These strategies may target sleep-related behaviours and lifestyle habits influencing your sleep patterns. Techniques like sleep restriction therapy, stimulus control therapy, and relaxation training could be employed as part of your personalised plan to improve your sleep.
