Empowering Pain Rehabilitation
Romy's work revolves around empowering individuals who face persistent pain. As a clinical psychologist, she plays a key role in the Co-directorship of Retraining Pain. This organisation is driven by the belief that effective pain rehabilitation involves a multidisciplinary team approach. They bring together a network of pain clinicians from all corners of the UK, all dedicated to helping those in need.
A Nationwide Network
The strength of Retraining Pain lies in its collaborative model. They work as a team to ensure evidence-based pain rehabilitation that leverages the skills of a multidisciplinary group. Beyond their direct patient care, they place significant emphasis on supporting fellow pain clinicians in their independent practices. By providing networking and peer support opportunities, their goal is to foster a sense of unity and shared purpose, both within the team and across the independent practice landscape.
The Need for Change
Romy and her team recognised the underserved nature of the pain rehabilitation field. They envisioned a different approach, one that didn't involve clinicians working in siloed ways. Retraining Pain developed a company that does things differently, with a person centred approach, committed to offering a more effective, evidence-based, and collaborative method of pain rehabilitation.
