Few lives run really smoothly, but most of us thankfully don’t have to cope with a life-changing trauma, such as an accident or long-term, life-limiting, physical or mental illness – or the loss of a loved one. When things go wrong, it’s hard to cope.
Insurance takes care of the bills. Healthcare professionals take care of the illness or injuries. But a person isn’t just a piece of hardware to be fixed: a person has emotional needs. Coping with recovery is hard – and coping with a permanent change is harder still.
Peace of Mind is here to help
Peace of Mind provides expert support and guidance for those faced with a long-term illness or injury. We help people to cope with their changed lives, or help them get their lives back on track. We provide services such as specialist counselling (including bereavement counselling) and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). We also help to outline options available for treatment and support, explain complex medical terminology, recommend coping strategies, connect people with self-help groups – and much more.
Help at a difficult time
When things go unexpectedly wrong, people have enough to deal with just to keep their lives moving. Trying to find specialist help, support and treatment can make an already challenging life more difficult still. We understand this; our role is to share the burden, to make things easier, allowing people to focus on themselves while we provide the kind of support and guidance that only years of experience can deliver.
Expert help, from experienced nurses
Our service is entirely staffed by experienced nurses – people who not only understand the physical, mental and emotional needs of those affected by an accident, serious illness or loss of a loved one, but who also are used to listening, caring and providing empathy. Their role is to understand a person’s specific needs and then to match those needs to the most suitable healthcare and support services – helping get people back on track.
Balanced, unbiased guidance
Our only concern is helping a person through what is a very difficult time. We’re not on commission. We don’t get any kind of financial incentive. Our service is either paid for as part of an insurance policy, pension or other financial service – or is paid for directly by a customer. We provide guidance you can trust.
