Behçet’s symptoms, and some treatments, not only impact on your physical health but may also affect how you feel and cope with many aspects of your life.

For this reason, you may wish to speak with a clinical psychologist about the emotional effects of your health problems.

Working with a clinical psychologist may help you with:

  • Difficulty adjusting to a diagnosis of Behçet’s syndrome
  • Difficulty coping with symptoms, including flares, pain and fatigue
  • Psychological distress affecting treatment, such as anxiety or depression
  • Consider the impact of your health problems on yourself and those around you.
  • Manage your treatment plan.
  • Harness your existing strengths in coping with things.
  • Deal with distressing thoughts and feelings.
