Psychology

What is psychology?

Psychological treatment refers to providing therapy session to the people who need it. It is often called as ‘talking therapy’ and mostly these sessions start with a friendly conversation to make the patient feel comfortable while sharing their feelings. It is a long process and may take many weeks and months for the patient to recover, depending on the case. It aims to explore the causes troubling one’s mind and offering training through mind exercises.

What is the process like?

Different psychological treatments call for different processes. However at the London Orthopaedic Centre our sessions are usually one-on-one rather than group sessions. Psychology in the orthopaedic setting is often related to pain management but not always. Sometimes, meditation and mindfulness based cognitive therapy is also used as a way to first relax the mind and feel comfortable opening up.
