Integrated respiratory service
A clinical health psychology service that’s working within a multi-disciplinary respiratory team.
What we do
The respiratory psychological therapist is part of the long term conditions psychology service which also focuses on diabetes and cardiac conditions. The respiratory psychological clinician works with individuals who have respiratory conditions such as COPD, fibroses, chronic asthma, chronic bronchitis etc. We work to help patients typically having difficulty coping with their conditions and/or find it difficult to manage their conditions.
We offer individual, couple and group interventions to patients. We try to tailor the treatment to the patient’s needs and use therefore different psychological treatment models. We are flexible in our approach, and we offer short term and longer term interventions i.e. 6- 20 weekly sessions.
