Do I have Kidney Disease?

Chronic renal failure is a condition characterized by a progressive and irreversible loss of kidney function, and psychological distress, depression, and anxiety are common mental health side effects. People with chronic kidney disease and kidney failure are 3 to 4 times more likely to suffer from depression compared with the general population, so If you aren’t feeling like yourself, it’s time to get in touch with a therapist who can help.

How does therapy help with kidney disease?

Depending on the severity of your chronic kidney disease, your therapist will determine the correct treatment plan. A therapist will support you through your negative feelings, pinpoint areas in your life that you may wish to change, help you set realistic goals, and give you tools to identify and prevent future bouts of anxiety and depression. Your therapist will custom-tailor your sessions to what you need at that moment.
