People with disabilities are unique and have many things to deal with to establish a level of ‘normality’ and integration in their lives. Often the lives of the disabled are planned down to the last detail and can be an issue for some.Statistics show that 1 in 5 people will experience mental health problems every year.
These increased rates are causing a concern amongst Australian people.Managing disability and its issues with counselling and having open conversations helps participants understand that they are cared for and supported. We offer counselling for all who are affected by the disability, this includes family, partners and loved ones.To achieve different goals, feel a part does not have to be frustrating. Due to their limitations with activities, disabled individuals cannot always achieve the things they want due to many factors such as social and physical barriers, as well as relying on others to enable them.
There can be a sense of overcoming and adjusting to any disability not only for the individual but for those around them. Some individuals cope perfectly well and adjust to living with a disability and life is ‘normal’ for them.Counselling will help them accept themselves and who they are as individuals and this is no different to anyone else, the difference lies in the challenges thrown up at them, and how they deal with their ever changing situation.
Some may find the constant challenges more overwhelming and this may affect their mood, self esteem and confidence.
