Being a teenager can be a tough gig. Being a teenager in chronic pain can be even tougher.
There are some very useful techniques that your teenager can learn in order to manage their emotions and their challenges.
An experienced psychologist can sometimes help your teenager develop these skills. That is how we came to find Elizabeth Forrester.
She is a Fremantle based psychologist who has a special interest in working with young people who suffer chronic pain.
We first met Elizabeth when she was working with the specialist pain management unit at Fremantle hospital.
She is now in private practice and I think she makes a great addition to our Helpful People list.
My daughter relates well to her because she is young and almost fits a big sister role as well.
If you have a teenager who is battling chronic pain and all the emotional issues that can accompany that, you might find Elizabeth a helpful addition to your network.
You will find her contact details on our Helpful People page.
