Champions Charity are extremely proud to provide our unique, new service for people adjusting to life after a cauda equina syndrome diagnosis.
Amongst other hidden life changing injuries, cauda equina syndrome can also leave patients dealing with lifelong issues around sexual function, sensation and fertility issues for patients.
With a lack of NHS provision to help support patients and loved ones come to terms with a “new self” the charity is providing dedicated therapy for couples to help them explore new ways of enjoying intimacy and sex after this life changing injury.
Working with psychosexual expert therapists Michelle Donald and Sue Lennon, patients are offered Introductory Sessions with one of these remarkable ladies and the opportunity to engage with a course of therapy when they feel able to do so that is funded by the charity.
Cauda Equina Syndrome can have a devastating impact on the physical self and the ramifications of saddle numbness, pain and body image can tear away at intimate personal relationships. The charity will focus on supporting families and couples to maintain relationships, and to find a way forward to live happy and satisfying intimate lives.
