Karen Stevens – Psychologist

Masters of Psychology (Org & HF)
Bachelor of Science (Honours Psychology)
Graduate Diploma in Psychology
Bachelor of Education

Even with the best-laid plans and intentions, life can throw us curve balls. Pain, life changing circumstances and permanent loss can cause grief. Often our pain is centered around life changes that are out of our control. Pain is a part of the human experience; it always has been.  How each person reacts to pain may be different.  Pain has both sensory and emotional aspects.  There are also cognitive (thinking) and memory components. 

It is extremely important to understand that our interpretation of our own pain is so much more than just the sensory aspect, that we can rate on a 0-to-10 scale.  Our emotions, thoughts and memories all have a profound impact on how we are affected by the physical pain we experience and how much pain we actually feel.

I find that helping people understand how pain works and is processed in the brain is empowering. I then work with my clients to help them learn ways to influence their pain experience, identify the values that underpin what is most important to them in their lives and find ways to reconnect with them. I believe in small, achievable changes towards meaningful outcomes.
