"Excellent treatment by psychology deprtment"

About: St Lukes Hospital / Pain Management

(as the patient),

I attended my assessment for coping with chronic pain and the clinical psychologist helped me to identify issues which needed working on.

I explained that I'd had CBT before and found it made me feel worse about myself so the psychologist, Vicki, suggested EMDR instead. This has been very successful for me, though I feel that the psychologist's way of treating me respectfully and compassionately was as effective as the treatment itself. I needed some additional sessions and this wasn't a problem and I was given a choice of treatments. I wish every health professional I came into contact with was the same as Vicki.
