Hi Kam1,

It sounds like you should be funded under TAC. ( I happen to be a former TAC solicitor). So, it's likely you will spend some time at Vic Rehab. Further to what Jamie rightly said, you should investigate mindfulness which is linked to meditation.
I'm doing a course in mindfulness in Richmond for pain management, I think there may be one one running in Northcote too.[/li][/li][/li]
See this TED talk.




I have found mindfulness incredibly helpful to jump-start myself out of unhelpful mantras or frustrating, yet redundant pain cycles.
If you are seeing a psych, they should be able to point you in the direction of a mindfulness professional, or be able to assist you themselves. It is most definitely a "big thing' in psychology right now, and is very much linked to meditation.

Once you get it right, it can feel like a superpower.

Cheers,
Sammie
