Following any spell in hospital, it’s easy to become depressed or fearful about the future. If you’ve recently suffered from a heart problem or cardiac-related illness, your life can seem so fragile. At Health Psychology Clinic, we can work with you alongside a team of multidisciplinary professionals to provide cardiac problem support.
Throughout your life, there will be stumbling blocks that stop you from doing what you want. Whether that be circumstance, your job or money, sometimes it isn’t meant to be. However, when you’re faced with cardiac problems, it can seem as though you’re at the end of your tether.
This isn’t true. In your recovery stage, you will be given plenty of recommendations from health professionals about how to stop it happening again or managing it. Whether that be a change of eating habits, stopping smoking or increasing the amount of exercise you’re getting, you may have to make big changes.
Adjusting to these changes in your lifestyle can be a real shock to the system, and our professional psychologist at Health Psychology Clinic, will slowly work you through these changes. On top of the actual changes, your mindset will come under pressure too.
Understanding your problems and moving you forward
Cardiac conditions will always make decisions harder in your life, but it’s up to you and our team to help you through these problems. During these times, it’s important that you build the necessary mental toughness to notice your problems and make a change.
The onset and continuation of these issues can leave you with depression, anxiety and anger. You may be given the opportunity to change your life around with exercise, healthy eating and losing weight, and this is something we will be able to help you with.
We understand the difficulty of becoming more active after a long time of being more sedentary, and our job is to slowly improve the way you see things from a mental point of view. By visiting our Harley Street clinic, you will be able to discuss with our experienced psychologist your fears and concerns for the future.
Joanna Konstantopoulou, our health psychologist here at Health Psychology Clinic, will give you the confidence and belief to make a difference in your life. No matter what cardiac issues you have been through, we believe we can help you turn the corner to give you back that warm, wellbeing feeling.

Thank you! You helped me with my panic attacks and feeling alive again. I really appreciate what you have done! Without your support I may possibly have given up.
I had terrible panic attack, I was shaking to my way to work and I couldn’t breathe. After few sessions with Joanna all my symptoms reduced and felt already better.
I visited Joanna last year for a health problem with my stomach, I had clear health exams and my doctor said it caused from work stress. I referred to Joanna and started psychotherapy with health psychology and cognitive behaviour therapy. After six sessions I felt more balanced and I am in my way to have my healthy body back.
