The pandemic has had a profound effect on us all. As society at large returns towards normality many of us will be left struggling with its legacy.
The Richmond Wellbeing Service is here to help if the pandemic has affected you. We have tailored programmes of support for those suffering with the physical and mental health effects of Covid19. You can refer yourself or, if you are under a hospital Covid recovery service, you may be referred by that team or your GP.
Post-Covid Syndrome (long covid)
Most infections with Covid resolve within 4 weeks but some patients continue to experience symptoms after 12 weeks. These symptoms can be very varied but in many patients include cough, shortness of breath, pain, fatigue and cognitive problems. We have specialised help for those suffering from this post-covid syndrome (also known as “long Covid”). You can listen to a podcast from our team about Long Covid and how to get help. You can refer yourself to our programme here
Many people have experienced frightening or traumatic events due to Covid19. If you are still experiencing flashbacks or nightmares about these experiences you may be suffering with post-traumatic-stress-disorder (PTSD). Richmond Wellbeing Service is experienced in helping with PTSD and provides a number of highly effective therapies (including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing- EMDR treatment). Please refer yourself if you would like to be assessed.
Working from Home can be isolating and stressful. Listen to one of our therapists talking about “Working from home and staying well” in our 60-minute CBT Webinar.
