Life Expectancy For Cystic FibrosisSometimes a person might just want to "get things off their chest" or get a different perspective on things. Many people find it helpful to talk through their thoughts and feelings with someone outside their immediate circle. Alternatively, a person may need to look at ways of making some useful changes in life in order to feel better, such as changing unhelpful thinking patterns or modifying behaviours. Often people just appreciate some extra encouragement to mobilise their usual coping skills or to learn some new ones.
The clinical psychologist on the CF team is available to assist people with CF in making any necessary changes so that they can feel better about issues that may be bothering them and so that they can achieve their goals in life more effectively
