It's Complicated

Find a therapist that can help with Chronic Pain

Therapy can be beneficial for people with chronic pain in several ways:

Coping with the emotional impact: Chronic pain can be accompanied by a range of difficult emotions, such as anxiety, depression, and frustration. A therapist can help individuals process these emotions and develop coping strategies to manage them.

Identifying and addressing the root causes: Chronic pain can be caused by physical, psychological, or social factors, and it can be helpful to identify and address these underlying causes. A therapist can work with individuals to explore potential triggers for their pain and develop strategies for addressing them.

Developing pain management strategies: A therapist can help individuals develop strategies for managing pain, such as relaxation techniques, mindfulness, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. They can also provide education on pain management strategies and refer individuals to other healthcare providers who specialize in pain management.

Improving communication: Chronic pain can impact relationships with loved ones, caregivers, and healthcare providers. A therapist can help individuals develop effective communication skills and navigate the challenges of communication in the context of chronic pain.
Enhancing quality of life: Chronic pain can have a significant impact on an individual's quality of life. A therapist can help individuals identify ways to enhance their overall well-being and develop a sense of meaning and purpose despite their pain.

Generally, therapy can provide a supportive and non-judgmental space for individuals with chronic pain to explore their feelings and concerns, and develop strategies for managing the physical and emotional challenges of living with chronic pain.

About It's Complicated

In 2019, two therapists set out to tackle a complicated problem.

The psychiatrist Carl Jung once wrote that, “Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble”. One does not have to be a therapist, though, to realize that life is complicated. But finding the right therapist, who you can build a strong relationship with, shouldn’t have to be. This is the founding principle of It’s Complicated.Since our start, we've helped over 23,000 clients and counting, offering thousands of free crisis support hours, and built thriving therapy communities in Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Munich, and Athens.
